Earlier notices in his typefaces refer to CAKE Publications (2401 University Ave. NE, Mpls, MN 55418), Chank Foo, Schmopyright, and Exploding (PO Box 90100, San Diego, CA 92169). Bio by Susan Froyd. See also here or here or here or here. Handwriting font service for 95USD. 95 USD Go font Yourself font service based on filling out a form. Piece on Chank in the MinnPost.
Chank became a popular and colorful figure who said this about himself: I like to drink a lot, and would like to think I'm known for it. Several of my fonts were inspired by booze, and I like to encourage other people to drink more, too. My best font is called Liquorstore.
A partial list of his typefaces:
At Ascender: the mostly hand-printed typefaces Birthday Girl, Bleacher, Bobby Zee, Chauncy Decaf, Churros, Collateral Damage, Couchlover, Easterbuns, Loopy Fiesta, Mister Marker, Mister Twiggy, Prickly, Snowballs, Space Toaster, Tipsy, Twigdancer, Younger Than Me (2009, grunge).

Christ Trek Fonts
Tim Larson (Christ Trek Fonts) is the Minnesota-based creator of the Open Font License fonts Marapfhont (2009, inspired by the logo font of the classic 1990s game Marathon) and Squarish Sans CT (2011, in Bank Gothic style). Both fonts are free and have tons of glyphs that cover many unicode pages, including mathematical symbols, Greek, Coptic and Hebrew. It is quite possible---but I am not sure of that--that this Bank Gothic family member is the only one that has such a coverage.
Tim is working on Brampton.
He writes about Squarish Sans: Squarish Sans is not a direct clone of any Bank Gothic. I have made conscious choices to deviate from existing designs. Yet it is strongly inspired by them, of course, particularly Michael Doret's DeLuxe Gothic, in that Squarish Sans has a true lower case as well as small caps. It should fit the bill should you have need of a Bank Gothic face.
Motivation for Marapfhont came from the Marathon Trilogy game: Remember the Marathon Trilogy by Bungie Games back in the mid-1990s? If you do, you remember it's iconic logo font, Modula Tall. There are no free alternatives to Modula Tall, and the few similar fonts miss important aspects of its character. I wanted to create a typeface inspired by the appearance of Modula Tall in Marathon. The lowercase of Modula Tall didn't fit the Marathon "feel" at all, for me, so I have redesigned the miniscules, to carry the signature look throughout. Thus, Marapfhont is not a clone of Modula Tall, but may nonetheless be used to generate the "MARATHON" title.
In 2013, he finished the pixelish typeface Looks Like Spht. In 2014, Tim Larson published the free Hebrew simulation font Hananiah (2014, OFL), which is based on Ezra SIL. It also includes regular Hebrew. In 2015, he published the German expressionist typeface Abibas [Abibas is a fork/extension of Gamaliel, a blackletter by Rafael Ferran i Peralta].

British font service company located in London. They have barcodes, a handwriting and signature font service, and sell all famous font families. As an example, from 1992 until 1994, they made Garamond-No-100-Bold, Garamond-No-100-Italic, Garamond-No-100, Garamond-No-49-Bold-Italic, Garamond-No-49-Bold, Garamond-No-49-Italic, Garamond-No-49. One source claims that this Garamond family was made by Compugraphic and that Datascan merely changed the name in the font information field. Maybe that is the way its collection grew so mysteriously and quickly to thousands of fonts. And here is the beauty: each font is priced at 320 US dollars for a single user. There are 30,000 fonts listed. Their collection, on paper, can be had for 9.6 million US dollars. For five users, cost doubles. [Google] [More] ⦿

Hazelnut Pro (2012) is a beautiful high-contrast rounded poster family. It seems to be a renamed version of Kelmas.

Grandis (2019) is a large sans family with a techie feel originally intended for video games. Eimantas writes: The font had to be readable while maintaining sci-fi feel and also to not rely on kerning (most video games don't support it). This meant a large x-height, steep diagonals and squared bowls to reduce the amount of white space between letters.
In 2017 he published the calligraphic typeface Anther, the clean legible sans typeface family Syabil, which features a free weight, Syabil Book. Kecap (2017) is a creamy upright script. Musk (a modulated sans) and Musk Script (a signature font) followed at the end of 2017.

At High Logic in the Netherlands, Erwin Denissen (who is based near Utrecht) has developed a font editor called Font Creator. No type 1 support. Windows only. At some point, Font Creator switched from shareware to payware. It also added Scanahand, a Windows tool for making handwriting into a font. His CV reads: Erwin Denissen started his career as an employee at ICT Automatisering, mainly working with Delphi. About two years later he switched to Bolesian were he made a move to Java software development. When Bolesian was eaten by it's big sister Capgemini in 2001, Erwin Denissen continued to work with Java. After several successful projects, and moving from software engineer to software designer to project leader, he decided to quit his job and fully focus on his own company High-Logic, he started back in 1997 as a graduate project. As an independent software vendor, Erwin Denissen strives to continue developing new and innovative products for the world-wide typography market. Right now High-Logic has three products, a font editor, a font manager and a font generator. In March 2008 Erwin Denissen acquired MyTools.com, including 8 products. In July 2008 yourfonts.com was launched as an online font generation service. More fonts related utilities are expected soon. [Google] [More] ⦿

Launched at the end of August 2009 by Håkon Bertheussen, this was a truly free font generation service---the users own the generated fonts, and there are no commercial interests behind the scenes. Some minor improvements are being implemented. It looked and felt like the popular YourFonts, which is not free. Håkon Bertheussen is a design engineer at Atmel, Trondheim, Norway. He runs Bertheussen IT. A list of examples of fonts made with Fontcapture.
Update in May 2010: Amazingly, Fontcapture is now being redirected to Yourfonts (where one has to pay 10 dollars for the same service). Maybe Fontcapture became too popular. But the redirection makes me think that Bertheussen could be bought after all. So here is an opportunity for hackers: imitate the Fontcapture experiment, offer a free service for a year, and then cash in. [Google] [More] ⦿
Fontifier is a 9USD handwriting font service (was free for its first month only) by David Johnson-Davies, who runs Human-Computer Interface Ltd in Cambridge, UK. One submits a GIF-format scan of a properly filled out template. Fontifier then analyzes a sample of each letter of the GIF version of the template, and constructs a character outline. The result is a standard truetype font. Comments at Typographica. Heinrich Lipschka reports that it made a grunge font from Noga. It sure looks like the low dpi requested (75 to 100) leads to jaggies and a severe loss of information. List of fonts made with this software. Fontifier tips. [Google] [More] ⦿

The main digital type foundry in Russia. ParaType was established as a font department of ParaGraph International in 1989 in Moscow, Russia. At that time in the Soviet Union, all typeface development was concentrated in a state research institute, Polygraphmash. It had the most complete collection of Cyrillic typefaces, which included revivals of Cyrillic typefaces developed by the Berthold and Lehmann type foundries established at the end of 19th century in St. Petersburg, and artwork from Vadim Lazurski, Galina Bannikova, Nikolay Kudryashov and other masters of type and graphic design of Soviet time. ParaType became the first privately-owned type foundry in many years. A license agreement with Polygraphmash allows ParaType to manufacture and distribute their typefaces.

They give this description of the 370+ library: The Russian constructivist and avant garde movements of the early 20th century inspired many ParaType typefaces, including Rodchenko, Quadrat Grotesk, Ariergard, Unovis, Tauern, Dublon and Stroganov. The ParaType library also includes many excellent book and newspaper typefaces such as Octava, Lazurski, Bannikova, Neva or Petersburg. On the other hand, if you need a pretty typeface to knock your clients dead, meet the ParaType girls: Tatiana, Betina, Hortensia, Irina, Liana, Nataliscript, Nina, Olga and Vesna (also check Zhikharev who is not a girl but still very pretty). ParaType also excels in adding Cyrillic characters to existing Latin typefaces -- if your company is ever going to do business with Eastern Europe, you should make them part of your corporate identity! ParaType created CE and Cyrillic versions of popular typefaces licensed from other foundries, including Bell Gothic, Caslon, English 157, Futura, Original Garamond, Gothic 725, Humanist 531, Kis, Raleigh, and Zapf Elliptical 711.

Their melody, generousity, and variety of shape and proportion are echoed in Arrotino. As a consequence of this Arrotino is not especially efficient, but it is comfortable. His typefaces and those by contributors at Sorkin Type:
Eben spent February and March 2011 learning how to carve letters in stone from Lida Cardozo at the Cardozo Kindesley workshop, Cambridge UK, and collaborating with Lida on the typeface Pulle.

Joachim Frank from Filderstadt, Germany, specializes in anthroposophical typefaces. His fonts include the Filirator family (1998, free at Dafont), Waldorfduo, Waldorfitalic, Waldorf Outline, Waldorf Schmal, Waldorf Schrift, Waldorfshadow, and Lisa (a free handwriting font). The Waldorfschrift family was created in digital form in the years 1993-1994 by Joachim Frank, inspired by the naturally organic letters from the anthroposophical movement of the 20th century of Rudolf Steiner.
Mike Diaz pointed out that Waldorfschrift is really really close to Ingrid Liche's FF Liant (1995) about which FontFont writes: In 1976 Ingrid Liche began designing Liant Medium for the packaging of the natural cosmetic company Weleda AG in Germany. Since then this typeface has defined the corporate identity of Weleda worldwide and because of this company's prestige, the look to the entire natural cosmetic and biologically oriented industry. Because of a split of opinions in the international company in 1994, the mother company in Switzerland decided to introduce a new house face; thereby giving up the brand name recognition that had been established over twenty years... Because of the turn in events and since Liche still owned the rights to Liant, she decided to distribute the typeface exclusively over FontShop International. She re-digitized the font, adding several ligatures and expanding the typeface to a three weight family. The most noticable characteristic of the font is its lively lines, the forms for which are taken from nature. Within the individual characters there is an exchange of sinking and rising points, which are connected by taut curves.

On-line commercial font generation service, based on submitting a scanned template. It feels like Fontifier. At some point it became free, and soon after that it took off---105,110 free fonts have been generated between August 2008 and March 2009. Its designer, the Utrecht, The Netherlands-based Erwin Denissen, writes: As an independent software vendor, Erwin Denissen strives to continue developing new and innovative products for the world-wide typography market. Right now High-Logic has three products, a font editor, a font manager and a font generator. In March 2008 Erwin Denissen acquired MyTools.com, including 8 products. In July 2008 yourfonts.com was launched as an online font generation service. More fonts-related utilities are expected soon.
He also made FontCreator, a free font editor. JulieCouillard (2008) is a handwriting test font I sent in to see how good the outlines are. Some time in 2009, Yourfonts become commercial, changing between 9.95 and 14.95 US dollars per font. At the same time, they embarked on a reseller program in which others can use their font generation engine for a fee. Resellers include
