Austie Bost Envelopes Print!

Happy day, a new font!!  This font is from a lot of research into what people like on envelopes... thus the title!  Different websites offer custom handwriting to go on envelopes and make them look fancy... and I have captured that feel in this all-caps font.

Austie Bost Arrow Mania!


Things at my house have been incredibly busy!  I moved two weeks ago, so we've been getting our house in order-- I have an office now!  Of course it's also the homeschool room and the arts'n'crafts room, but OHMYGOSH having a space with a DESK?  What a treat!

So there's a story behind this font... For Austie Bost Envelopes, I worked with Ms. Kristi of I Should Be Mopping the Floor to get it juuuust right.  When I asked about extras, she said ARROWS, and lots of them!  I came up with lots, but could only cram so many into an alpha font... so here are the rest and a few more.  :)

So thanks Kristi!!  For a great idea for a wingdings font!

This font is free for personal use at DaFont.com!

It is available (dirt cheap) at Fontspring.com!  :)

Go get it already!

I am so pleased to announce that my newest font, Austie Bost Envelopes, is ready for distribution!

It comes with some arrows... that are a precursos for a whole webdings font full of some adorable arrows that I have all sitting there just waiting for a home!






***
I need to offer a HUGE SHOUTOUT to Kristi of I Should Be Mopping the Floor and to Trisha of Black and White Obsession for their help from beginning to end with this font!  You can thank Kristi for the cute arrows in the font, and Trisha expecially helped make everything legible, even in small print!  Thanks, ladies!!

Austie Bost Versailles


Look!!  A new font!!  I am happy to release Austie Bost Versailles!  I'm tempted to stop writing anything about the new fonts I release because I end up gushing with each one.  :)  But I fall in love with each of my fonts as I create them... So gush I will!  And here's the poster as I shush.  :)



This is my favorite feature of this new font!  Swash away by using the ¯¬ strokes! (U+00AC & U+00AF)

I want to offer a belated THANK YOU to Kristi from I Should Be Mopping the Floor!  Kristi was a huge support in getting this font created--it was my first time reaching out to a font afficionado for as-you-go advice and input.  Kristi helped with pointing out consistencies and making letter differences!

Working, working, working.....

I am very excited about a number of fonts in the works... right now, right this minute, I'm working on sorting some calligraphy samples to make a new connected calligraphy font.....  we shall see how long it takes!  This is what a font "embryo" looks like in the very early stages...

Find samples I like... draw them out in Illustrator... sort everything... fill in the gaps... :

Comments?  What do you think about some of the samples?

Checking In!

I have begun, after a two month break, working on fonts again, hurray!  I've poked at fonts here and there, but whenever I put the laptop in my lap, my baby (now 11 months old!) is jealous and demands to nurse.  Possibly that is TMI for some of you, lol.  But it's true.  We've entered a new phase of baby sleeping: taking better naps, sleeping better and longer (and earlier) at night.  OH HAPPY DAY!  :D

I'm also posting this code so I can claim this blog on Bloglovin.com.  :) Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Manitou Beads

Manatou-Beads-Header---Shaula

I made a friend when I sold this font—Shaula Zink works with raw stones, cuts them, polishes them, makes them into gorgeous jewelry.  She has a great sense of humor, that’s what originally drew me to her.  Now, after a few months, her website is up and running, ready with her gorgeous, natural offerings!  Please go take a look at her site!

Austie Bost Roman Holiday (Solid)

Austie-Bost-Roman-Holiday-Font-Cover-solid
This has been such a fun project!  It’s one of the clearest, most legible fonts, and to have it available in Solid as well as in Sketch now is pretty fun!  I’m working on an OUTLINE version as well—it’s actually kind of complicated because it has the outside of the line and the inside of the line, too…  So we will see how long THAT takes.  I’m guessing we’ll have some other fonts before that one comes out, *laughing* I have a great GRUNGE font I’m working on that should be done soon!

This font is ONLY available as a PRO font from Fontspring.
