Shareware distribution gives users a chance to try software before buying it. If you try a Shareware program and continue using it, you are expected to register. Individual programs differ on details -- some request registration while others require it, some specify a maximum trial period. With registration, you get anything from the simple right to continue using the software to an updated program with printed manual. Copyright laws apply to both Shareware and commercial software, and the copyright holder retains all rights, with a few specific exceptions as stated below. Shareware authors are accomplished programmers, just like commercial authors, and the programs are of comparable quality. (In both cases, there are good programs and bad ones!) The main difference is in the method of distribution. The author specifically grants the right to copy and distribute the software, either to all and sundry or to a specific group. For example, some authors require written permission before a commercial disk vendor may copy their shareware. Shareware is a distribution method, not a type of software. You should find software that suits your needs and pocketbook, whether it's commercial or Shareware. The Shareware system makes fitting your needs easier, because you can try before you buy. And because the overhead is low, prices are low also. Shareware has the ultimate money-back guarantee -- if you don't use the product, you don't pay for it. If you feel like sharing your enthusiasm for our font products, please pass around our shareware evaluation packages, which you can find on Compuserve, America Online, major BBS, ASP shareware vendors, and on our web site, where you will always find the very latest version :  


While we do our best to make sure you enjoy our fonts to their fullest, please remember that they are both technical, and artistic creations. We will gladly provide support for technical questions. Requests for artistic changes will be taken as suggestions, which implies one should not expect aesthetic touches as part of a normal support. Nevertheless, artistic point of views and suggestions are always welcome, and appreciated. Before contacting us, please make sure you have read the end of this document. It has been written, based on questions asked very frequently, by users who requested support. Finding the answer in this document will save you time and aggravation. For practical and financial reasons, we cannot provide phone technical support. You may, however report any problem by email. We will usually follow up within 24 hours, by email. Please try to be as specific as possible, in order to get appropriate help. Remind us the name of the font you are using, on which platform (Mac, Windows or OS/2), and the exact nature of the problem. Depending on the complexity of the question, you will receive a reply, usually within 24 hours. Reported technical bugs will be fixed as rapidly as possible. However, given the necessity for tests and verifications, it is impossible to give standard time limit. In general, past experiences have shown an average response in less than a week. When completed, font updates will be sent to the customer who has reported the bug by email.


The standard user license granted upon regular purchase is for ONE (1) user, non transferable license. Redistribution is prohibited. However, the software can be installed on several computers, as long as only the licensed user is using it. For instance, fonts are frequently used on a desktop computer, and a laptop. This license does not grant in any way the right to distribute or sell the software.   Multi-user licenses are available. These license allow simultaneous usage of the software on several computers. We also can gran,t license to developpers to distribute software, upon special agreement. Please contact us for a quote or more information.  

These terms may change from time to time. It is agreed between, you, the user, and Match Software, that they govern any transaction, and can be changed by Match Software at any time without notice. Please visit our site regularly for updates. If you cannot agree to these terms, please do not purchase.

LIMITED WARRANTY Users of the fonts placed on this disk must accept this disclaimer of warranty: "These fonts are supplied as is. The author disclaims all warranties, expressed or implied, including, without limitation, the warranties of merchantability and of fitness for any purpose. The author assumes no liability for damages, direct or consequential, which may result from the use of these fonts." The fonts placed on this disk are registered versions, and should under no circumstance be passed around. They are reserved to your own use, or the company who acquired them. If for any reason the registered version of the font/program was provided to you directly by Match Software on a defective media (disk), it will be exchanged for a new one at no cost. If you have suggestions for improving this font/program, we appreciate your comments. It does not mean we will fix or modify the font in the way you wish in a given time, or that we must do it in any way. However, if we feel the suggestion is appropriate, next version of the font may be inspired from these advises. We decline any responsibility if for any reason this font/program is put to bad use in any way. It worked fine on a regular configuration, and on a regular printer, with the most usual software packages. If, for any reason, it could not work on your specific configuration, Match Software cannot be held responsible. As technical combinations are almost infinite, and because systems evolve in ways we cannot predict, it might happen a new system, or a particular configuration, does not work with a font. For instance, because a new version of the system requires a new font format. In general, we will try to keep up with the system versions, and eventually offer upgrades, if possible, but it does not constitute an obligation, nor would it be the case if you acquired a set of seats cover for your specific car, and require they fit any new car you may decide to buy later on.  


This program is produced by a member of the Association of Shareware Professionals (ASP). ASP wants to make sure that the shareware principle works for you. If you are unable to resolve a shareware-related problem with an ASP member by contacting the member directly, ASP may be able to help. The ASP Ombudsman can help you resolve a dispute or problem with an ASP member, but does not provide technical support for members' products. Please contact the ASP Ombudsman online at


Here are some questions frequently asked about our fonts, and the answers we where able to come up at the time. You may also want to read the answers, even if you experienced no problem with the present font. As a matter of fact, we have come up with some solutions of our own, which may help you get better results with all your fonts. This list of questions and answers will be regularly updated, in order to spare as much as possible aggravation for our customers. As more and more Power Mac are used to-day, we also added Q&As about Windows, becoming more common in the Mac world. After reading, please contact us, if anything was still bothering you. We will do what we can to help you the best way we can. Thank-you for all your reports. 

What books would you suggest ?

Click here for suggested readings. A short list of useful books for beginners and afficionados as well.

How do I install TrueType fonts under Windows ?

Open the "Fonts" control panel, and click "Add". Then, look for the font files (extension *.TTF) where you copied or unpacked them. Select them, and click OK. You may install several fonts at the same time, simply by selecting them. Windows 95 requires a slightly different procedure. Open the "Fonts" folder you will find in the Control Panel located within "My Computer" icon. Then, simply copy the TrueType font into it.  

I do not find the *.FOT files to install the *.TTF TrueType fonts.

This type of file is generated by Windows 3.xx when a new font is installed. In other words, if you use the correct Control Panel procedure to install a new *.TTF file, Windows 3.xx will automatically create the corresponding *.FOT file. Windows 95 does not use this type of file at all, and directly takes advantage of *.TTF fonts.  

How do I install PostScript (ATM) fonts under Windows ?

PostScript fonts come with the extension *.PFB and *.PFM, one of each for each font. Rcent versions of Windows, such as Windows 2000 and XP directly support ATM fonts. In order to use them with previous versions, , you first must install Adobe Type Manager (ATM) for Windows. Then, copy *.PFB files in the WINDOWS\PSFONTS directory, and the *.PFM in the WINDOWS\PSFONTS\PFM directory. Then, use the ATM control panel to install the fonts. PostScript fonts offer lots of advantages over their TrueType Windows counterpart, as kerning and more precise printing. For some typesetting environments, you may want to acquire ATM Windows. This install process may have changed with newer versions of ATM. please refer to the manual of that utility for more details.  

How do I install my OS/2 fonts ?

All versions of OS/2 are directly compatible with ATM Type 1 fonts, often refered to as Windows ATM fonts. All the fonts available on our site contain the necessary additional files necessary for installation under the OS/2 font palette. Warp 4 also allows installation of TrueType fonts (see Windows installation for use of the WinOS2 control panel).
ATM fonts are directly compatible with OS/2. For each typeface, you need the font itself (PFM), plus the AFM and PFB files. The Font palette converts the AFM file to an OFM file, when installing the new font. Here is how to install ATM fonts (native OS/2) under OS/2 : Open OS/2 System Open the System Setup Open the Font Palette Select "Edit Font"
The "Edit Font" appears Select "Add" Follow the instructions on the "Add Font" window, then select "Add" Select the names of the font files you want to install on your system Select "Add" Point to the title-bar icon and double-click
For more information about the Font Palette, and adding new typefaces to the Font Palette samples, please refer to the OS/2 documentation.  

How do I install my Mac fonts ?

Under Mac OS/X, double click on the font, and click "Intsall. Allternatively, you may place the font files in the Library/Fonts folder. If you use the folder on the hard disk, it will be available to all users. In a multiuser environment,the Library/fonts folder may be limited to a particular user "local" settings.

Under Mac OS 8-9, and some versions of System 7.5, simply drag the font files over the System folder. The Mac will then ask you if it should place them where they should go. Simply click OK, and that's it. Do not drag the folder containing the fonts, but rather it's content. If you do not get a warning message, chances are you did not drag the proper files. TrueType fonts appear as little suitcases, and in the Match Software collection always bare a name followed by "suit", like in Halloween.suit. PostScript fonts are composed of a bit-mapped font, named with the extension "bmap", like in "Halloween.bmap", and a laser font, which looks like a little printer like for instance "Hallo". You want both in the System folder. Under System 6.xx, you must use Font/DA mover to get the fonts into your system. That utility is available on your system disk, or on the best Mac on-line services. Refer to this utility documentation for more details.  

How do I install fonts for Linux?

In general, Linux would support Windows fonts. Most recent versions support TrueType (TTF) fonts and graphic envrionments such as Gnome will let you install pretty much as simply as on a Mac. However, Linux is far from being as homogeneous and simple to use as proprietary software such as Windows and Mac OS. In all instances, we can offer only very limited support for Linux envrironments, due to the high degree of variability in graphic support, as well as printing support. If you do not have command of your particular Linux environment font installation, we strongly suggest you first try to install the free evaluation fonts before going ahead with purchase. Most Windows free archives are compacted with Zip format, whcih can readily be unpacked with Tar-gz under Linux.

I observe a lot of Windows fonts have characters mapped to ASCII 128 or more. How can we input these characters from the key-board ?

Is ALT+<char-code> the only way of doing that on windows ? Besides the tedious Alt-XXXX routine that the Character Map accessory lists there is another way for many characters : use the International US keyboard.
In the Keyboard control panel, select language, select US in the list, and click Properties. Then, instead of United States 101, select United States-International, click OK, apply, eventually provide the Windows CD, and that's it !
The US International keyboard is essentially identical to the regular US keyboard, with important differences : grave, tilde, caret and single quote become accent dead keys. So if you press for instance 'e, you get é. If you still want "'e", then you press space after the single quote. The other major difference is that now the right alt key, or ctrl-alt, will give access to many upper-ascii character, including all the accented characters, and many symbols.

Why are you placing so much documentation in your archives, they become huge and cost a fortune to download ?

Sorry for the inconvenience, BUT... As you know, the font you have now at your disposal for FREE evaluation is provided to you by Match Software WITHOUT ANY CHARGE. As a matter of fact, when some other software houses ask you to pay up front for any of their fonts, we give this one away for your enjoyment, hoping it's originality and quality will prompt you to acquire usage licensing, and buy other fonts along the way. Our only hope for any reward for the tremendous time and efforts it took to create a font is entirely contained in the promotion material we include in this archive. How are you going to know the beautiful fonts we created for you at a very low price, if we do not include our "Incredible font deal" file, with all the pictures of these fonts ? Do you really think anyone would register simply because we ask? No, of course not. We do not get a penny from any of our distributors. On-line services do charge you to provide shareware, but we never see the money they take to sell our creations. Shareware vendors may make fortunes on our back with all sorts of CDs and other great packages, we do not see the color of any of these sales. Magazines may boost their sales like mad and millions using our shareware packages, they never reward shareware authors, let alone with a petty free subscription to their magazines. So, if you still really feel our archives are too big, we are terribly sorry, but if you really appreciate shareware, you must understand that authors deserve their share of the ware, and the only way we have to sell anything, after vendors have been collecting up front all sorts of fees, is to promote registration. If authors never got any registrations, it would mean no new shareware in a very short time. Shareware is very much like PBS stations : if you want independent creation, you might as well pledge for it, and accept some advertisement from the sponsors ! Thank-you for your support.  

On my Macintosh, a TrueType font does not always display correctly at all sizes. Sometimes, it gets replaced by Geneva, or alternatively, by some squares.

Very complex fonts can pose some display problems on small configurations. You may also want to add to your system utilities such as Adobe Type Manager (ATM) which improves the font displays.  

Under Windows, some characters of a given font do not print at all sizes, or show only on screen, or the opposite.

This happens most often with complex fonts, such as DinosoType, Bujardet Vignettes of Nahkt Hieroglyph. Some characters print as squares, when they appear fine on the screen, or the opposite, or both. It happens most often when the output is to be made on a dot-matrix printer, would it be impact or ink-jet. It does happen, sometimes, though, with laser printers, as well. The problem seems to reside within Windows itself, and the way TrueType is handled. It happens most often with Windows 3.1 on small configuration, but has also been observed on large Windows 98 configurations. We where unable to get any explanation from Microsoft which could help us understand how to solve the problem. However, as in general this type of fonts are most used on isolated basis (letterheads, titles, etc.), it is possible to use another approach : Create a new document under Windows Paint With the TEXT tool, enter the appropriate message Copy the image, and paste it into your word processor or desktop publishing software. Of course, if you use more sophisticated tools than Windows Paint, like Corel Draw on the PC, the result may be better. Although TrueType fonts may pose this problem, PostScript Type 1, even extremely complex, do display and work perfectly under Windows with Adobe Type Manager (ATM). If you want do do any type of serious desktop publishing, we strongly recommend you use ATM and PostScript fonts.

On the Macintosh, I tried to install your TrueType font, but it shows only as a sort of Helvetica, or Geneva. What's going on ?

You probably ran into a font number conflict. In other words, the newly installed font has probably the same number as some other already installed in the system. You may want to use a utility to check the numbers of the fonts installed in your system, maybe FontMaster, which is available in the shareware circuit, or another more recent. The way to make sure a font is OK : BEFORE a font is installed (if you installed it, remove it from the system and restart your computer before proceeding), open the suitcase, and in there, double-click on the font itself. You should normally get a little windows, showing the expected characters. Install the font, through the regular procedure you are accustomed to ; Suitcase if you are lucky, or by placing the suitcase in the system. Do the same manipulation as before (opening the font suitcase, then the font inside). If the font shows OK, it means it should work properly. If the sample text is showing some sort of Geneva, it means something is wrong, and the font has the same number as a one installed before. The only way to go, if you do not have a special utility to renumber the font, is to remove any "non system" fonts, and out them aside in another folder, then restart the computer (when installed, the system contains only Chicago, Courier, Geneva, Monaco, New York, Symbol, Times. They are the only ones which should remain).
At this point, you should be able to re-install the new font with no problem. You can then add the fonts previously set aside, one at a time, until one will actually do the same as before : show as Geneva. Here is the posing-problem font. You can get a utility which can change the fonts numbers, or simply avoid using the two fonts at the same time. Another solution is simply to use Font/DA mover, which checks any font ID number conflict before installing a font, and eventually changes it's number if needed.  

I do not find the accented characters, and punctuations seem to be missing. They are not available through my regular keyboard. Why is that ?

The free evaluation fonts do not contain punctuations, nor the upper-ascii characters, including the accented characters. If you need these characters, just register for the font, and you will receive the registered version, which contains the full set of characters. You can register on line on our site, and immediately download the registered version, at  

Why in hell did you choose the same number for one of your fonts than one of mine ?

This especially goes for the Macintosh, but could happen with Windows or ATM as well. Each font has it's own specific number, which the system uses to recognize it, and communicate with the printer. If two fonts in the system have the same number, strange things will happen : the font may look fine on the screen, but print different on the printer. Or the opposite. Look very different on the screen than what you expected. This kind of conflict is automatically solved by utilities such as Suitcase, an excellent font manager, available for Macintosh and Windows. We strongly recommend it's use. Our problem is like the game of Sea Battle : whatever number we choose, there is always a chance some other font designer may have chosen the same. Utilities which can list fonts numbers, and eventually change them, will solve your problem. If you discover one of our fonts have the same number as one provided by a big company, or, worse, regularly in the system, like Arial under Windows or Chicago on the Mac (which has already been checked for, but one never knows), please report it ASAP. We will change the number at once.  

One font crashes the system.

Check if the file was not corrupted. A disk error, or some unexpected manipulations, like switching off the computer with applications still active, may be the cause. Use the original copy of the font, which you received in your shareware or registered package. If the problem still persists, please contact us.  

Since I installed your fonts on my Macintosh computer, Suitcase does not work.

The extension is in place, but it does not work. Adding a new set of fonts cannot damage Suitcase. However, a system crash, or switching off the computer without first doing shut-down in the special menu, can damage Suitcase. Simply make a new copy from the original Suitcase disk, restart, and it should work again. Some other inits may conflict. We have noticed the same glitch with a scanner Photoshop add-in, which seems to fire bullets at Suitcase, anytime it is run, and systematically destroy it.

I need a font in a language not yet available.

Creating fonts for new languages is not only challenging, it is also culturally very rewarding, very inspiring. We do not always know the language you plan to use. But if you provide us with the proper information, we will use it to create a new font. It is fairly simple : we only need the best representation of the alphabet, character by characters, and eventually it's pronunciation, if it is not a Roman set of letters (Japanese, for instance, or Russian are in that case). Write us for more details.  

I want a font made according to my specifications.

If you already have a printout of the desired font, or any graphic representation that we can use to draw the characters, our regular price for designing a new font is very reasonable. If you want a creation from scratch, it will be more difficult. Please call us for a quote. We have succesfully created full character sets for TV shows who had only a few characters in their logo, for instance, or developped Foreign versions of corporate fonts for Ikea of Sweeden.  

How can I obtain a printout of all of your fonts ?

Printing a whole catalog is very difficult today, especilly considering the fact that new fonts are created on a monthly basis, and that you can very easilyt download an evaluation sample for most fonts available on this site. So you can experiment at will.

You must provide thorough phone hot line support for any brand and type of computer. If Adobe and others can, why not you ? You should be able to be reached 24 hours a day, 7 days a week !

We are sorry, with our small operation, not to be able to compete with giants who see more money in 10 minutes than we may be able to earn in one year. However, our prices are lower beyond comparison. That is also because you are not paying for million dollars advertisement, and oversized staffs. Besides, we are prepared to fix glitches if any, and gladly accept advises from our customers. Remember, however, that a font is somewhat equivalent to a bumper sticker to an automobile. Please do not ask us to solve the problems generated by your system, no more than you would think about requiring drive lessons from a stickers publisher. We do our best for our fonts to work properly on STANDARD configurations, including STANDARD printers, STANDARD system versions, STANDARD applications, when our fonts are installed through STANDARD procedures. However, even if we do not have a 24/7 hot line, our voice mail is always taking messages when we are not available, and we will get back to you as fast as we can. Phone (323) 656-4244  

In your Martian font, you placed a dot above the glipnol character, and forgot to put an accent above the weirdoo. It is unforgettable. I am furious and you are just as stupid as a bunch of lunar dogs ! You should be whipped, and give me my money back, too, plus maybe a little extra, because I suffered incredible damage to my much sophisticated sense of intellectual properness and inherent graceful sensitivity.

We are sorry not to know Martian as well as such a refined literate as your highness. Please do not blow your disintegrator at us, poor ridiculous clumsy uneducated filthy computer groomers. Please consider that ignorance may not be such a crime, after all, and have mercy for the less taught. If for any reason we committed a mistake in transcribing your native language, be assured it is not intentional. Please courteously provide us with the proper information, and we will make sure appropriate updates are made. All we know of, as humble and insignificant artisans, is the fonts craftsmanship. It is not our fault, then, if the subtleties of a foreign language do not strike us like light over the saint's head. However, we are bending our knees to the more educated. Thank you for helping us improve. At the present time, our foreign fonts have been thoroughly reviewed, so they satisfy our customers. Some have helped perfect already very nice fonts. But we will appreciate any additional help !  

When I use too many fonts, my printer crashes.

Try setting the option "Print TrueType fonts as graphics" in the Windows Control panel. On the Macintosh, set "Unlimited Downloadable Fonts" in the Printer Options.   Why do you ask for money for your fonts ? They should be free ! There is a strange curse around computer software, these days. Nobody would ever consider getting a movie for nothing, or walking into a book store and require a sample for free. For programs, however, the matter is quite different. So many people consider computer software piracy as a light little mistake, that eventually, some may indeed start considering software authors as thieves, because they pretend to get a small reward for their job. Some luminaries (noticeably around GNU project) even have the nerve to play with the very strange notion that computer software should only come free, and that any commercial distribution, including shareware, has some analogy to a rip-off. Fine and good, then, but why do they at the same time insist to get paid for their lectures, or to get royalties from their books ? Match Software is a small business based on shareware distribution. Anyone can browse at our productions in the same way a reader could read a book as many times and as completely as wished, before actually paying for it. Please do not pirate us. If you feel a font is really of use, please register. That small usage fee will help us continue creating new original, exclusive and fine fonts for you. We sincerely thank all users who have, through their registration, helped pay the rent, the phone, and the electricity which powers our equipment while creating all these fonts. Please continue to support the shareware concept. It is the only way out of the commercial monopolies. Small software companies are as much a liberty warrant as small book publishers are : without them, big companies would have their way, culturally and financially. Nobody would ever want that to happen !
