The Beta Fonts Program is our exclusive outlet to preview & license our upcoming fonts. You can get them months before their “official” release and for a fraction of the cost!
$ € £ ₹
The license price begins ridiculously low with the first beta releases, then it slowly goes up with subsequent updates. The best part is: you only pay once for the fonts – so whenever you jump in and license a beta font, you’ll get all future updates and the final versions for that one payment. This will usually mean getting a whole family for less than the price of a single font.
Updates will vary in frequency and scale. Some will feature minor improvements & enhancements (tweaked letters, more kerning, a few new symbols, etc.) – other updates will be major (new weights, scripts, tons of additional glyphs, etc.). Though the price of the beat fonts won’t necessarily increase with every update, they would be the most inexpensive the earlier you license them.
The beta fonts come with full blown Desktop Licenses for the number of users you purchase. This means they are mostly meant for print or rasterized images – they may not be used as webfonts or embedded into apps or ebooks – and the license is good forever. Additional users, web fonts, or embedding rights can be added to your license once the final fonts are released.

Already in progress for over four years, Collection is making rapid progress now and is ready to be tested & used! The first beta version contains 1,000 glyphs, all totally different in style, to get you going with some funky designs. Collection is ideal for titles, logos, and drop caps – you probably won’t set a newspaper or book with it. But if you do, please share it with us!

Lini is our latest Devanagari & Latin family and it is designed to be about as condensed as reasonably possible. The first beta version is light, extremely compressed, & nearly monolinear, so we recommend using it big!

Current Price → $30
Who doesn’t love monospaced fonts? Show Me the Mono is made more for front-end design – it’s not really programming. While you could code with it, you’ll probably rather use it for some rad posters, book covers, and text in artsy catalogs.
