Serif vs Sans
Which type of font is better? The best font choice are the one where readers do not notice the font, but the message. Serif fonts are easier to read in printed works, this should be your primary choice.
Need of fonts and study materials
now how do I get these fonts for free from here?
I guess we don’t
oh! for the FLUX http://www.fontsy.com/font_details_3641.html
I am getting a book on manual drafting published. I have used romans.shx in CAD and Calibri in WORD for my illustrations. My editor has seen Archstyl.shx, city blueprint and country blueprint and want me to use one of these more hand-drawn looking fonts. Before I go to the expense of downloading one of them, I would like to see a sample of them first. Would it be possible for you to e-mail me a sample of these fonts. Perferably in all caps and large print (equal to 24″ in publishing print or 12″ in CAD.
Your site is wonderful. It is the only site hat gives samples of some fonts!!1 Thank you so much.
Great debate, though I always use the sans font. Its good on web and in print I just have to convert them to an object or a shape to make it show well on prints.
Very useful and enjoyable. Thanks.
It would be nice if the samples included a line of numbers. (0123456789)
This is particularly useful for architectural drafting.

Smart and instructive, also beautifully illustrated. Nice Job ;)
I love these fonts samples
