Have your say on the key issues in education in the TES Have Your Say Group.
Can I suggest downloading it fromthe many available free torrent sites.
The price of a font @ "around 25 euro" is crazy. A font takes around 25 - 30 minutes to produce. If you wish to have it as an accepted and oft-used font by those who work in places such as schools then you should a) charge a fair price b) not whine when you find i pirated on the internet.
I haveMSWord 2007 and the font is in there.
By the time you've paid for the font in all its forms, you may as well get Office (Student discounted version) and get it that way.
Please could you kindly email the sassoon font as i too wish to use it in the classroom?
ALL QUESTIONS ABOUT SASSOON FONTS can be answered from the originators' (Dr. Rosemary Sassoon & Adrian Williams) website: http://www.clubtype.co.uk/fonts/sas/faq.html
Yes we "get shirty" about users who pass-on copies. Without our pioneering research and development work, there would be no Sassoon fonts to discuss. We need to be properly rewarded for that work, so that we can continue to offer relevant professionally designed typefaces - and what's wrong with that. If the Sassoon fonts are saught after by Teachers/School/Parents, then they surely have a 'worth'. Our website offers various packages, from as little as £8 per font for Educators. Nobody should expect to obtain them for free!
If anyone on this discussion list has any other questions, please contact us via the website.
I bought the basic sassoon font tonight from the official website and have spent the last two hours trying to get it to work in windows 2007. The tt font2 that comes as a zip only has 3 files not 4 and is not the same as the ot file and to be honest I have given up and wished I had just used a free font. All I have got is £32 worth of a headache. I have emailed the site and im waiting for a response
Well I must give them credit where it is due....It seems the font installer was faulty and they replied within 12 hours and gave me a new download. So although it was a pain I cannot fault the customer service
is font plural? if so, what is the singular?
answers on a postcard please?
font is singular, plural fonts
The singular is typeface and the plural is typefaces. Font really means something else.
And as an ex-typographer and font designer/digitiser I have always been slightly irritated by colleagues trying to be all knowledgeable asking me which font I would use!
The answer is obvious, as they aways mean to ask 'which typeface from the list I have on my PC should I use?'
Try TrueType or PostScript then!
I have always found typefaces an issue and now I needed to write out a worksheet and none of the fonts were suitable!
Like the author I found that very few are suitable for early years/ primary writing and now I have found one I thought I should share with anyone seeking it.
The National Primary font is the main one which is free for non- commercial use. However I am not using the o , r and f of this typeface so I have used the National Primary First Font for these letters.
This is where I downloaded them from
and then when you have saved them, in Windows 7 right click the file and click install font.
Hope this helps. All the best :)
