Crash Numbering is free for all!

Crash Numbering Font Free

These two numeral fonts are designed by Philip Krayna and RXC.

The serializing technique known as crash numbering has been in use since before computers started roaming the earth… some say as far back as the days of phrenology and 5¢ sasparillas. If you’ve ever bought a raffle ticket or been handed a claim check you’ve experienced crash numbering first hand.

Our digital simulacrum, which we are proud to present here and now, includes Serif and Gothic styles; three variants of each numeral; and a smattering of numerical symbols. It’s ideal for numbering invoices, gift certificates, undergarments… anything that’ll hold still long enough to run through your inkjet printer. And it’s free.

Catacumba Pro Sale. 6 Fonts. $49 (60% Off).

Catacumba Pro Sale 60% Off

Check it out, Catacumba Pro is on sale for the next few days for $49 (60% off).

http://www.psyops.com/shop/catacumba-pro/catacumba-pro-complete-set/

Catacumba is a six-weight typeface inspired by the painted inscriptions of the Igreja de São Francisco church’s catacombs in Porto, Portugal. The forms are clearly influenced by Victorian style, with an unmistakable French heritage, and yet they somehow convey a decidedly Portuguese sensibility.

Catacumba’s centerpieces are its two titling styles: the exuberant Excelsa, and the didonesque Moderata. From these two decoratives, four new cuts are derived. These, the Text fonts, are tamer and more understated, but maintain the same artisanal grounding and DNA as the display fonts. Each Catacumba font includes an expanded selection of OpenType ranges and features, allowing for extensive use within the Latin range.

Vidange Pro Sale. Buy 8 fonts for only $49 (60% off) through June 16th.

Vidange Promo 60% Off Sale

Vidange Pro is on sale this week. Buy 8 fonts for only $49 (60% off).

http://www.psyops.com/shop/vidange-pro/vidange-pro-complete-set/

For Vidange, artist Jack Usine set out to create a “kind of unclassifiable bastard typeface, something between text and display… geometry and humanism… with a strong presence of French vernacular sign lettering.” Vidange’s inspirations are very much in the vein of amateur sign lettering, with the the improbable ‘factory-roof’ M serving as a prime example.

As is often the case with so-called naïve art, Vidange is full of lively elements that defy the status quo. But even with these non-standard constructions, the forms remain recognizable and exude a dignity all their own.

The Vidange Pro Sale ends on June 16th.
