Of late I’ve really been focusing on one of my first loves – typography and pretty fonts. I’ve had my eye on several different books on the subject. Santa was kind enough to bring:
“Scripts” Elegant Lettering From Design’s Golden Age” by Steve Heller and Louise Fili
“Elegantissima” – The Design & Typography of Louise Fili
Both books are a visual feast for a type nerd. Especially if you love vintage typography as I do.
Speaking of beautiful typography, I’m always on the prowl for royalty free commercial use fonts. Yes you can download many free fonts but most are not for free for commercial use. Many people aren’t aware that fonts are copyrighted and commercial use fonts can be expensive.
Mighty Deals is one resource I’ve found for buying attractive commercial use fonts without breaking the bank. They also offer other design products for professionals: graphics and textures, icons, scripts and plugins, software and themes to mention a few.
I liked the fonts I purchased from Mighty Deals well enough to become one of their affiliates. If you click on the above image, it’ll take you to their site. I’ll get a referral fee if you purchase something. I consider Mighty Deals too good a resource not to share!
I’d love to hear what you think of Mighty Deals…
For Christmas I made some do-it-yourself fold over cards for someone on my gift list. I’m sharing one of the Thank You cards as a little thank you for my subscribers and visitors. It’s 5.5 inches wide and 8.5 inches tall. When folded it 5.5 inches x 4.25 inches.
I recommend using 110# cardstock if you’re printing at home. Most home printers can’t handle anything much heavier. Use the trim marks as a guide for cutting and then fold it in half. The inside will be blank for adding your own personal message.

As always, I love to hear your comments. See you in the New Year with more posts and freebies!
