Letterpressfonts

The name Letter Press (or: Letterpressfonts) makes it sound like this company is steeped in typographic tradition, and completely legit. Most of their 3000 or so fonts are sold for 9.90 US dollars. Most classic fonts are renamed: Mystral became Mystic, and so forth. Now, this Mystic renaming was also done by Jason Hogrefe's Summitsoft Corp, which operated out of Omaha, NE. Maybe this parasitic company is run by the same person. Maybe not. [Google] [More]  ⦿
