Steinweiss Script – Just Released!

November 8, 2010 on 11:16 pm | By | In Gigs, News | 5 Comments

We’re very proud to be able to finally announce the release on MyFonts of The Steinweiss Script Family. We’ve described these fonts briefly in the last two postings (scroll down) but, to reiterate, this family is made up of three weights—a Light, a Mediuim and a Bold. Within each of the three weights, through advanced OpenType features, a user has the ability to access three distinct variations: Simple, Fancy, and Titling. Rather than trying to describe them again, I’ve provided an image that demonstrates what they are:

I began designing this font with just the larger caps and taller ascenders/descenders, but in the end felt that giving user’s these options would add usefulness to the font. These variations make Steinweiss Script accessible not just for headlines, but for applications where vertical space might be an issue,  and also for longer passages of text.

To help users understand how to be able to access these features (and also to show off the font) I created “The Steinweiss Script User’s Guide” in PDF form (1.2 MB download). I’ve also created an “Incomplete” character showing to give somewhat of an idea of what’s in the font:

Steinweiss Script is available on MyFonts and FontShop either as a family of all three weights, or each of the weights can be licensed individually.

As always, we’d love to hear your comments about this font!

Head’s up everybody! I’ve just set the release date for the Steinweiss Script Family for Tuesday, November 9th. It will be available only on MyFonts—at least initially. And I’ll be running an introductory sale at a 20% discount. For a good preview of what’s in the font and how it’s OpenType features work you can download “The Steinweiss Script User’s Guide” (about 1.2 MB).
