3IP Offbeat Grab Bag font


Random Discounted Bundle…

Our wacky Offbeat Grab Bag™ contains three hard-to-categorize fonts that still might prove handy: Treefrog (calligraphy from a broken inkpen), Chromosome (simulated labelmaker tape), and Speed Bump (with its hundreds of zany pictures). They’re kind of like tools you’re happy to find in the back of your utility drawer. And affordable! Choose this bundle to save 50% off licensing these three fonts separately. View Details »


American Scribe font


Random Historical Pen…

American Scribe™ is modeled after the hand of Timothy Matlack (1736–1826), a Philadelphia brewer and master penman. In 1776, when the Continental Congress ordered the Declaration of Independence to be “fairly engrossed on parchment,” the task fell to Matlack, whose masterful script was perfect for the first and most famous of American documents. Try it out here »


New Millennium Sans font


Random Book Text…

New Millennium Sans is one of a group three typefaces that share a common name and design philosophy. This sans-serif member is described by its designer as “a humanist sans in the Optima vein.’ Its letterforms are geometric wonders—fine, slim regular styles and clear, definitive bolds. (The other member of this group are New Millennium and New Millennium Linear.) Try it out here »


Geographica Hand font


Random Old Map Font…

Geographica Hand is a replication of the hand-lettered titles on British map engravings of the 18th century. The font is as legible and versatile as Geographica Roman but more genuinely evocative of the source materials. Its 900 glyphs are feature-rich and include several sketchy cartographic illustrations—trees, churches, windmills, and the like. Geographica Hand is a member our Old Map Fonts CollectionTry it out here »


Paestum font


Random Display Face…

TWT’ eye-catching Paestum family was inspired by Greek inscriptions of 6th and 5th centuries BCE. (Its name comes from the Latin name for Poseidonia, a former Greek city south of Naples.) Comes with Light, Medium, and Heavy weights, each with upper- and lowercase alphabets, numerals, diacritics, and essential punctuation. Note: Paestum lacks unhistorical glyphs like currency symbols and the @ sign. Try it out here »


Professor font


Random Modern Handwritten Font…

Professor replicates the cursive script of an actual college professor (the designer’s late-father), who had the kind of plain modern hand schoolkids used to see on a blackboard. Replete with contextual ligatures, this font was designed to fool casual readers into thinking they’re scanning real handwriting. Has nearly 600 glyphs and full Latin support. A member of our Modern Handwritten Fonts CollectionTry it out here »


Attic Antique font


Random Antique Text Font…

Akin to the Century faces, Attic Antique™ has the look of a weathered old serif from a century-old textbook. It’s surprisingly legible at any size, from 12-point text blocks to enormous billboard copy. Comes with roman and italic styles and plenty of OpenType-features, including true small caps, discretionary ligatures, and full Latin support—nearly 900 characters in all. A popular display face since 1993. Try it out here »


Treefrog font


Random Offbeat Font…

There’s nothing quite like Treefrog, which resembles writing made by someone who’s dipped a finger in spilled ink. This celebrated grunge font from the 1990s conjures a sense of whimsy, a flight of fancy. Fittingly, it comes with a series of droll ornaments (fish, chairs, garden tools). Oddly, it also has full Latin support—with more than 500 glyphs in all. A member of our Offbeat Grab Bag bundle. Try it out here »
