What are the factors that will help you to decide to buy a typeface family or simply few weights? It generally starts with a new project that reaches on your desk. Then, you check the fonts already installed in your laptop, but you’re not convinced by the quick testing made on your design. Especially because you built a concept for your client who requires a very unique palette of colors, certain kind of illustrations and typefaces. Precisely, the typefaces you perhaps have discovered few weeks ago via twitter, on I Love Typography or Typedia blog!
From theses great places that you visit regularly, you jumped to the foundry website. Does the foundry website looks professional? Is it easy to search the fonts? Online samples, pdfs specimens, online testinghelp to confirm if a typeface can be appropriate for your new project. But you want to be sure that the quality is there. It’s only when you have the fonts installed on your laptop that you can really confirm if the expected quality is there.
 
Try-out fonts are different from free fonts
This is a summary of the reasons why we re-introduced what we call Try-out fonts. Its different from what you think a free fonts are: it’s OpenType fonts with quite limited possibilities but enough to let you check the quality of the design and its style.

Where to find them?: They are listed at the end of all fonts available for each typeface family: Just add them to your cart and follow the process up to download page.
