    I lost the page during an "experience". And I was only half-done with it, and you can't salvage a post if it's a new thread and a first post.

    I'll get to it tomorrow.

    I have two birthdays to attend to today.

    I think as long as you avoid more than one Birthday a year, you should be fine; unless you are The Queen.

    Ahem :)

    Unless you sign up to Design Cuts within a week of this posting date (7 September 2018), you will miss out on Joyful, a hand script typeface with some brushstrokes within the glyphs to add a little photorealism.

    The perennial unthankful creep must barge on for a moment:


    Design Cuts and several other sister media companies offer free fonts weekly. But often, they are handwriting fonts. Other headline-style fonts pop up, and I think it's worth your time to bop over there once and week and see what's free. Or inexpensive. They offer nice textures regularly, for designers to use in XDP.


    Handwriting fonts are large in file size. Fonts that, say, are over 100K, you load enough of them, and your system, and especially Xara, will slow down noticeably. And this is advice from 2018, when many of us have TB drives and gigs of ram, and a new Intel processor.

    I'll be back nest week with some more free fonts that I think are worth downloading for a Nice Price.

    Regular, Light, Iralic and Bold, plus a second font you apply to a duplicate of your text to add the lined drop-shadow.

    This looks to be a good font for "old-time" packaging, eg. Monsieur Tutulage's Snake Oil.
