Font Editing Software

Attendees are welcome to use any font editing application they wish. That said, at this event, we can best support recent versions of FontLab or Glyphs. We can offer much help for FontForge and others, but it won’t always be tool-specific..


Crafting Type is happy to welcome FontLab as a sponsor. FontLab offers:

  • access to a fully-functional version of any FontLab font editor for 30 days (we recommend FontLab 8).
  • 30% discount for all attendees on both regular and academic pricing (academic = both students & teachers) of FontLab (so yes, that's a total of over 75% off for academic pricing!)


Crafting Type is happy to welcome Glyphs as a sponsor. Glyphs offers:

  • access to a fully-functional version of Glyphs for 30 days.
  • 10% discount for all attendees on regular pricing of Glyphs. (Academic pricing remains at half regular price.)


Crafting Type is happy to welcome FontForge as a sponsor. FontForge offers:

  • many features, although not as advanced as other restricted-license editors
  • access to a fully-functional version forever, for free
  • complete access to the development process on Github
