Editorial Policy & Disclosure Statement

Typographica is a collaborative effort produced by a group of individuals. Opinions expressed are those of each author and images shown are the property of their copyright holders. We write about whatever we find interesting or relevant, regardless of industry connections or sponsorship status.

Business Relationships

Though the following organizations have no direct influence on the site’s content, we would like to disclose the following relationships. Members of the editorial staff are (or have been) employed by or consult(ed) with: Font Bureau, FontShop International, Fountain, HVD Fonts, Identifont, MAC Rhino, MVB Fonts, MyFonts, Production Type, Re-Type, Typekit, and Webtype.

Advertising

All advertising is in the form of paid sponsorships that are always identified as such. The site editors and authors are not compensated by sponsors to provide opinion on specific products, services, websites, or other topics. We only endorse products or services that we believe, based on our expertise, are worthy of such endorsement. Any product claim, statistic, quote, or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.

Typographica does not publish sponsored content, nor do we sell links embedded in editorial articles. We choose destinations based on the context of the content, the quality of the destination, and the benefit to the reader. The ownership does receive affiliate payments (a small percentage of each sale made through links) from the following retailers: Fonts.com, FontShop.com, Fontspring.com, MyFonts.com, Typotheque.com, and YouWorkForThem.com. Despite these relationships, we strongly support independent foundries and publishers, and we recommend buying directly from the maker whenever possible. In typeface reviews, the first reference to the typeface in the main text is linked to the source foundry. The sidebar lists authorized and recommended distributors. As of April 2016, foundries who sell fonts directly from their own site will always be included at the top of this list. This is the same policy in book reviews, where the first book reference links to the publisher’s site or book’s official site if available.
