Default Very reasonable prices

The difference is that the organization and pricing at www.fontmarketplace.com seem to be targeted at nonprofessional users. People who don’t already know a lot about type will find plenty of help in identifying fonts appropriate for a specific use or occasion. Licensing is for one user as opposed to five on www.ascendercorp.com. The typical FontMarketplace prices are $4.99 for a single font and $17.99 for a family of four. One interesting family available at these prices is Nina, a Matthew Carter sans serif design that is similar to Tahoma and Verdana but more condensed. There are several collections with fonts, templates, and tools for a specific application. For example, the Ascender Resume Kit offers 12 fonts, 24 Microsoft Word templates, and resume writing tips for $14.99. The fonts are in three families of four: Ascender Serif, which has the same metrics as Times New Roman, and Michael Harvey’s Ellington and Strayhorn, a related serif and sans serif pair.
Yes, this site has some very reasonable prices, and for fonts that I might actually need. I do have lots of free fonts, many of which are not likely for me to actually use.
