“We believe that type foundries don’t want to be spending time and money maintaining websites. We also believe you shouldn’t have to settle for reaping only a fraction of the revenue of sales that major marketplaces pay out in royalties. Fontdue removes this hurdle by providing the tools you need to run a foundry with no upfront cost, and a pricing model that scales to your size. We take care of running and maintaining the technology so that you can focus on designing and marketing your typefaces.”
