Just my type

Reader, may introduce you to my friend Veer? Veer, Reader.

Now that introductions are out of the way, it's time for you two to get to know each other. Veer is an amazing resource for graphic artists, anyone that loves beautiful type, or people making do-it-yourself invitation or logos. It's also a site that is just plain fun.

Veer recently sent me their newest marketing campaign...the member handbook for their own secret society. How fun is that? And since I myself have purchased fonts from them, I'm lucky enough to be a member. I'll even share my secret codename...Kitti Casual Navalfluff...but don't tell anyone else because it's secret. Want one for yourself? Get it here.

But all kidding aside, they have amazingly beautiful fonts and graphics for sale. My current fave is the Feel Script, designed by Alejandro Paul. It was just introduced a few months ago, and I've already seen it used in some magazine work (Seattle Homes and Lifestyle must have wanted to get their full $99.oo worth out of the was used on the cover of BOTH the March and April issues).

I also love the shoebop font and about a thousand others! (And very few of them are as pricey as the $99.oo Feel Script; I must just have champagne taste in fonts). The fun part is that they have a "flont" tool. Just register with them (it's free) so that you can log in, and then you can try out any font with your own words before you buy. It's a great way to make sure you have the right type for your logo or invites. Veer also has a great selection of images for purchase. Many are very funny, and are just waiting for the right caption. I'm partial to the last.
