Hey guys & gals!

I have been working hard on a typeface that I finally feel is ready to be released. I don't want to start my own "foundry" and would like to release it through a foundry like fontfont, although I don't think it would be the right fit, and they may not be interested. So this leads me to creative market and youworkforthem, I don't like how creative market lets basically anyone release a typeface without a screening process, but I'm not sure about youworkforthem, what's everyone's opinion on them? I've also talked to Lost Type, but again, likely not a fit for them either!

Thanks!

Simon.

  • I've been with YWFT for almost ten years. They are not my biggest distributor, but they are responsive, reliable and easy to work with.
  • I once sent my fonts to YouWorkForThem. Got no answers at all. 

    Although I must say, because I live in Iran and the US sanctions against us restricts any commercial relations between Iranians and the rest of the world, many are "scared" somehow to send replies to us. 

    I got approved my foundry at MyFonts months ago, but the minute the legal department understood I'm from Iran, they didn't answer any emails afterwards :)
  • Look into Fontspring. They're a joy to deal with, and pay the best percentage of any reseller I know.

    I find YWFT to be professional and responsive.

    I'd try again now sanctions have been lifted.

    Which is what?

    Thanks. But the Iran-Deal was just a big propaganda. Nothing has changed. Most of the sanctions are still in place. We are under sanctions by Google, Adobe, HP,... and a lot lot more since Obama.

    70%.
    Quickly and easily found by going to the Fontspring website: https://www.fontspring.com/account/foundries/info

    YWFT is easy to deal with, but I get very few sales there. If you want people to buy your fonts you really have to go with MyFonts. Or do your own thing and promote like crazy.
