Please welcome Tripper. He is not that friend you want to marry and wake up next to every day. You don’t want to discuss your financials with him. No, Tripper is that friend you invite when you want a really good party, when you wanna have a good time, when you want to impress your neighbours or family. But hey, who doesn’t want to have a really good party every now and then?

Tripper, a set of rock-hard stencil fonts

UPGRADE AVAILABLE

Dear font-lover, we’re happy to tell that our complete font library has been upgraded.

Most notable changes of this upgrade:
• improved screen performance of webfonts
• broader language support (200+ languages)
• more OpenType features included
• all fonts come in .otf format
• webfonts are now synced with desktop fonts
• improved cross-platform compatibility

In case you want more technical details, read “Notes about the library upgrade”:
http://www.underware.nl/blog/2013/05/notes-about-the-library-upgrade/


* It’s free! *
Probably the best news is that this upgrade is available for free. Anybody who ever bought a font directly from us in the past can upgrade for free, also when you bought your font more than a decade ago. Contact support@underware.nl if this applies your situation.


* Behind the font upgrade *
Most of the work behind a font upgrade is, and should be, invisible. For those who wonder what we have been doing in the past two years, read “Behind the font upgrade”:
http://www.underware.nl/blog/2013/06/behind-the-font-upgrade/

* Single font for free *
All our bundle-buying customers can choose any single font for free. In case you didn't receive an email, read this:

Warm regards,
Underware

Today in our inbox: what students nowadays learn during a 2-years typography course:


Hi, attached is a screenshock from one of my "Advanced Typography" student`s documentation.
At first I thought he meant bleed(ing)… but no, he means blood!
I think I scared the hell out of my kids when during the lecture on type specimen design I showed Underware "Book of War, Mortification and Love" printed book and the making-of video:

Thank god we have no Parental Advisory Explicit Syllabus Committee :-D
