Category:Commercial type foundries

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A commercial type foundry is a large company that sells and distributes typefaces, as well as holding the trademarks for common typeface names and licenses of past designs. In addition to typefaces, commercial foundries will also market their own font-related software. Commercial foundries are often divisions of corporations or are held by parent companies — for instance, Adobe carries its own division for typefaces and font-related products.

This category INCLUDES vendors of virtual (digital) type, but does not embrace manufacturors of actual foundry type, nor those of cold type.
