Make Your Own Fonts

Easy yet powerful font editor With Fontographer 5, it’s easy to design new typefaces and to customize existing fonts, and the result will be high-quality fonts that can reliably work across different operating systems
Created with the designers in mind Unlike any other font editor on the market, Fontographer 5 combines an easy, intuitive and very efficient user interface with our mature, state-of-the-art font creation technology, making it a perfect font editor for graphic designers, DTP professionals, calligraphers and type designers who do not with to dive into the technical details of font creation
Ease of use Originally developed by the same team that stood behind Freehand’s success, Fontographer (or "FOG" as some call it) was the first software product on the Mac ever to include Bézier drawing tools, and has been famous for its clean, robust and easy-to-use user interface ever since.
Professional Font Software Thanks to the completely restored font generation engine, Fontographer builds PostScript Type 1, TrueType and OpenType fonts of the same quality as our high-end FontLab Studio product (it also supports less-popular formats such as Type 3 or Multiple Master)
Super Font Creator In version 5 (available for both Mac OS X), we’ve made Fontographer even easier to use: without specialized knowledge about font formats and font technology, any FOG user is able to create professional-quality fonts

The secret behind this is our own unparalleled font technology know-how. The mature FontLab Studio engine, combined with brand-new sophisticated algorithms, provide the technical underpinnings for the new Fontographer 5. In fact, FOG 5 is even able to read and export FontLab VFB files, so exchanging documents between different font editors is easy!
Looks smooth, rocks hard While FontLab Fontographer 4.7 was a small improvement over version 4.1, the new version 5 is truly a major overhaul of the product. We’ve remained close to the Fontographer spirit yet brought the improvements necessary for a modern font creator in the 21st century

Our work on Fontographer 5 was like a restoration of a classic car. We’ve kept the familiar, elegant body that users love, giving it just a subtle facelift. And then we’ve replaced the old inefficient engine by modern cutting-edge technology

Seasoned users of Fontographer 3 and 4 will quickly find themselves at home, and new users will find the product very easy to learn

Great price and we will definitely look here before we buy any software again.
Richard, HK
this is the first time that I have purchased a download only product and prefer to have a physical copy of the software as a precaution. However, having used your site I may start to use it more often. the download went smoothly and the instructions were clear. the fact that you included DVD burning softwarehouse was also a bonus. so far I have had a positive experience using your website.
