6883 fonts and still going...................

posted on 1st of april, 2009

Hello, Today I was just managing my fonts, then I realized that I have over 6883 fonts in my library collected & purchased for the past seven years since I started designing. I'm using Suitcase Fusion (very useful software) to manage my fonts in both Mac & PC. Now I have another few thousands fonts which I need to check. I'm a great font fan. Typeface as always been a part of my designs.

I would like to ask fellow designer which font types you guys use. I use Open Type so switching between Mac & PC becomes easy. So what font type do you use?
A small brief about different font types.
PostScript, True Type & Open Type

One thing I have noticed in Open Type & True Type they have only one file but Postscript fonts has two files.

True Type & Postscript font contains just 256 characters, where as Open Type has over 1000 characters and can contain up to 65000 characters and special typographic features. These may include various s of figures (tabular, old-, lining), small caps, ligatures, ordinals, and other extras.

With a single Open Type Pro font you can typeset Latin, Greek and Cyrillic text.

Well I can write a big article about the font types, just need to copy and paste my old notes. But I prefer to keep it short.

So which font type do you use and I am excited to know how many fonts do you guys have in your collections?

Thanks to all,
Eclecticelegance, & Lingong, I agree its very huge. Just got addicted to different styles.

Seema, Yeah at times I get confused but I have a suitcase fusion to keep me updated, and a small print version to check everything, very handy, especially for my clients to choose the style.

Waren, Yeah I agree I'm a fontoholic, thinking to change the title of my blog. hehehehe
