’Tis the season for font resellers to vie for any yearly corporate budget leftovers. I can think of worse ways to spend the dough, and at least two outfits are offering nice incentives to boot.
FontShop continues their generous holiday tradition of bestowing an Apple PowerBook, iBook, or iPod upon those who purchase a qualifying type library. What better way to stuff a creative studio’s stocking than with a complete FontFont library and a PowerBook?
For every $1000 you spend at Veer, you’ll get $200 to spend on their clever merchandise, much of which makes for great gifts. My picks (I know you were wondering what to get me this year): the aluminum portfolio, kern hoodie, “Drawing From Life: The Journal As Art”, holga camera. Mention offer code GIFT200E.
Both these offers are good only until the end of the year.
For those with tighter budgets, various indie foundries at MyFonts are offering year-end specials, including Letraset’s bizarre 25% off the letter ‘E’.
Funny you should mention all that, I actually requested the Kern zip-up for Christmas this year. Of course I don’t expect my family to buy $1000 worth of stuff to get it for me.
Anyone buying fonts for “holiday” gifts?
