P22 Foundry announces font pricing changes

I recently received the following email from the P22 Type Foundry, one of my favorite font resources for logo text, announcing some pricing changes:

"As of Jan 1, 2007, we will be adjusting some font prices. The P22 font sets that are now $29.95 will be priced according to the number of fonts in each set. For example, Cezanne (a set of two fonts) will remain at $29.95, while Eaglefeather (a set of 5 fonts) will be adjusted to $59.95. Single fonts will remain at $19.95 each.

In addition, we will no longer offer boxed P22 fonts on CDs as an online ordering option. We will still offer the CD back-up option for all fonts issued by any division of P22 type foundry for the nominal charge of $5, plus shipping.

Now is definitely the time to order those P22 boxed fonts you've been wanting...for yourself or for holiday gifts. Existing prices and ordering options will remain in effect until Dec 31, 2006.

In addition, as of January 1, 2007, all fonts in the P22 division (i.e., not fonts issued through IHOF, Lanston, Sherwood or Rimmer) will be delivered in TrueType, PostScript and OpenType format."

Prior to the new pricing changes, P22 is having a sale on their boxed CD font sets. Even after the price increase the foundry's fonts will still be a great value in comparison to the offerings of some other companies.

In other P22 news, the company is "cleaning house" in preparation for an upcoming move and offering a "P22 Ephemera Pack" for only $10 plus shipping. Each pack features over 40 different items - including P22 catalogs, postcards, expired P22 dollars, stickers, packaging and other P22 stuff. Double and Triple packs with scarcer items are also available.

Designers might also want to consider joining the P22 Club 2007. For $99.95 club members get five fonts, 20% off all purchases during the calendar year and more.

For many years I've used P22 fonts in designing identities. In a future bLog-oMotives entry I'll post a some of the designs using type from the P22 collection.

It may be time to visit the P22 website and check out what they have to offer.
