100% indy font software

Hello, we are 3 guys with a simple goal: to bring you the most user-friendly font creation tools. Yep, 'cause self-expression rules !!! ✊

Our journey started back in 2006. We had several attempts along the years, but in 2015 something really cool happened: 760 Kickstarter backers decided we should keep working and ship some of the cool prototypes we'd built.
We are now dedicated to crafting creative tools that any creative can use.

Oh, if you make some really cool stuff with Fontself Maker, we’d love to see it & share it with the community. So feel free to ping us, or to tag your creations on Twitter & Instagram with #fontself
