14 Beautifully Creative, Hand Crafted Fonts

After our last font bundles were such huge hits, we set to work to bring you guys something even bigger and better. This is our largest font bundle yet; bringing you 14 best-selling creative font families, complete with web fonts, extended licensing and a ton of extras!

Monster Creative Font Bundle

A huge collection of best-selling, hugely creative font families + artistic extras.

After our last Monster Creative Font Bundle was such a smash hit with the DC community, we knew that we’d have to work extra hard to bring you guys something even better.

This bundle is something really special, bringing you 14 best-selling, creative font families, complete with web fonts, extended licensing and tons of extras – all for a whopping 93% off.

This is the best font bundle that we’ve ever seen, and here’s why we think you’ll love it:

  • The 14 font families in this bundle are all best-sellers, and really popular even at full price. We scoured hundreds of fonts to find you the best of the best, and carefully monitored which fonts were receiving consistently outstanding feedback from the design community. These fonts are thorough, meticulous in their detail, and just scream professionalism, yet creativity all at the same time.
  • We all know that good fonts tend to be really expensive. Normally you’d be lucky to get one font of this quality for $29, let alone 14! We’ve squashed the regular value of these fonts down by 93%, making this the best value font bundle currently available anywhere.
  • All fonts in this bundle include web versions, at absolutely no extra cost to you. These web versions would normally jump up the price, so to get them for free is a huge bonus.
  • As well as web versions, we’ve secured you the best licensing possible! There is an extended license on all fonts in this bundle. This means that not only are they OK for commercial projects, but you can use these fonts in items that you sell. The only restriction is that you cannot redistribute the fonts directly (i.e.: ‘as is’).

We’ve been using these fonts for the past few weeks, and they’re amazing to work with. Unlike many fonts, they actually look better outside of the artistic preview images, and really come to life once you start using them in your own work. Check them out:

Massive Artistic Font Bundle

Design an Artistic, Fun Beer Bottle Label

Hello all! Simon here. Well guys, Design Cuts has done it once again. They have assembled an amazing collection of typefaces. After carefully looking through the bundle, I spotted two different tendencies. One is the grungy/hipstery/hand-made vibe, the other one is more on the cute, poppy, and upbeat side of things.

As you might have seen from some of my previous tutorials, the cute, poppy, and upbeat side of things isn’t necessarily my forte. So our piece will be more on the grungy side.

As for our creation in particular, as you might have guessed it, we’ll be working on a beer label.

WHAT WE’RE CREATING:

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

THE CONTEXT FOR OUR PIECE

Thanks to the #badgehunting craze, I’ve been reminded that old beer labels are awesome. After a little bit of research, I came across some cool nuggets.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

From there, it was obvious that I was going to have to create a beer label design, even a fictional one, with all that inspiration at hand.

I decided that we would leverage the sweet badges, shields, and icons found in Eveleth’s extras.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

For our mascot, the Monstrinhos typeface will be perfect.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Finally, Ruba’s ornaments will help us to bring the finishing touches to our label.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Most of our work will happen in Illustrator, as it will be the best tool to manipulate the various type elements, transform them into pure vector elements, alter them, etc. We will quickly use Photoshop at the end of the tutorial for a bit of texture exploration though. I’ll show you how you can leverage some of the paper textures released by Design Cuts on Creative Market to age the design.

With all of that in mind, pop open a cold one (or grab a cup of Earl Grey if alcholic beverages aren’t your thing, that’s cool too), put some music on, and let’s get rolling.

STEP 1: FILE SETUP

Like I said earlier, we’ll be working mostly in Illustrator. Create a new document. I’m using a 15″x15″ canvas in CMYK. Note that size doesn’t matter too much, since we’re working in vector.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

STEP 2: THE BADGE

Eveleth is a brilliant type family. Its shapes “weight” features a sweet collection of shields and badges.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

The one we’ll be using is this one. You can get it through the glyph panel (see this short intro to the glyph panel for more information), or by creating a new text object set in Eveleth Shapes and by pressing 5 on your keyboard. Easy as pie.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

The next step, which we’ll follow for most of the elements we’ll grab from the typefaces today, will consist in removing the grunge speckles on the badge. As a designer, I like to have control over how much grunge is applied to my design elements. Type elements that are pre-grunged out don’t allow that. That being said, I still like the rough, “ink bleed” style lines of the badge, so I’ll keep these.

The process to “degrunge” the element is simple:

  1. Transform the type element to outlines (so it’s a pure vector object)
  2. Ungroup the object if necessary, and release the compound path
  3. Recolor the released compound path elements appropriately
  4. Merge everything back together
  5. Delete the color we added back in step 3 so that we have a one color element that isn’t grunged out anymore

To change your type object to a vector element, use Right click menu > Create outlines.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Ungroup the object (SHIFT+CTRL/CMD+G), and release the compound path (Right click menu > Release compound path).

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

The result is this all black shape.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Hover the badge, until you find the shape corresponding to the white inner rim. Fill it in white.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Next, use the Pathfinder (SHIFT+CTRL/CMD+F9) to merge everything together. Start by selecting everything. Note the speckles of grunge that turned to black when the compiund path was released.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Merge.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

And here we have our clean badge.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Lastly, use your direct selection tool (A) to select the white inner rim, and delete it. This will replace the white with a transparent shape, getting us back to a one color object.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Here is our badge, shown with a gray background to demonstrate transparency.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Now can also be the time to organize your layers.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

STEP 3: THE WHEAT STALKS

Not that many beer labels skip on the wheat stalks. Luckily for us, Eveleth Shapes has a few for our consideration. We’ll use the one that’s available under the letter “t.” I’d rather use the straight version than the pre-curved one, so we can give it our own curvature.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Start by giving that single wheat streak the same clean-up treatment than the badge. We want to remove as much pre-made grunge as possible.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

From there, make sure it’s above the badge, turn it 90° counter-clockwise, and change its color to white.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Next, we’re going to slightly reduce the size of the stem. These are very long, and given the end goal (to make the stalk fit within the center bulge of the badge), they will be an issue. Simply use your direct selection tool (A) to select the points of the bottom extremities of the stem, and slide things up a bit. I reduced mine by about ⅔.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

As you can see, the result might be these jagged and ugly lines. There’s a fix for that.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Simply draw some white shapes with the pen tool over the holes, and merge them with the stalk. I colored the shapes I created in magenta, so you can see them.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Now that that’s done, we can finally give its curve. We’ll use Effect > Warp > Arc to do so. We’ll use a vertical arc, with a value of 65%. Note that you might have to adapt your values depending of your object’s size.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Move the stalk slightly to the right for a better spacing with the edge of the badge.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

With the warp complete, the stalk fits well, but we could still tweak it a bit. First, we’ll rotate the stalk of 6°. Your rotate tool can be accessed through the R key.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Finally, I’m just going to size it down a hair, so it fits even better.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Once you’re happy with the transformation, we’ll create its twin brother that will ornate the right hand side of the badge. Rather than go through the same process again, we’ll expand the first wheat stalk (which will apply its transformation for good), copy it, and flip the copy vertically to get our second.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Expand appearance can be found through the Object > Expand appearance menu.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

The Reflect panel can be accessed through Right click menu > Transform > Reflect.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Here’s a global view once both have been placed.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Once done, to accurately center the pair of wheat stalks within the badge, you can:

  1. Group them together
  2. Select the stalks and the badge
  3. Use the Horizontal align center alignment functionality
  4. Center everything back in your canvas
  5. Ungroup the wheat stalks
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

STEP 4: THE MONSTER

Our beer will be called the monster beer. Let’s add the monster that’s hidden under the letter “A” of the Monstrinhos typeface.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Make sure to change it to outline, switch its color to white, and place it at the top of the badge. He should cover slightly above ⅓ of the badge.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Next, grab the spade that’s part of the Ruba ornaments typeface (“s“), and add it to the monster’s forehead. You should also consider changing the type to outlines.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Here’s a look at the layer organization so far.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

STEP 5: THE BEER NAME

It’s finally time to make use of the letter forms of some of the typefaces in the current font deal.

I went through quite a few options when creating it.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

My favorite combo is Monstro solid and Brave. I’m using Brave as my primary typeface, as it has sends off a slightly “creepy movie” type of vibe. Monstro is a nice, bold, and utilitarian serif, that perfectly fits for the little additional words.

Brave is sized at 72 points, while Monstro solid is sized at 36 points. I’ve tweaked the line spacing so it looks consistent between the three text lines. Oh, and the kerning is set to Optical.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Once you’re happy with the line spacing and kerning, create outlines from your type object.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Once that’s done, ungroup and regroup the words separately from each other. Then, apply a very subtle Arc warp effect to “The” and “Beer.” I’m using 10% and -10%.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Once you’re happy with the type, it’s time to add it to the badge. I decided to manually center it between our monster’s legs and the two wheat stalks. You could also use the Horizontal align center functionality we’ve used earlier.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

STEP 6: ADDITIONAL WRITTEN MENTIONS

Besides the title, we’ll add the “Blue Ribbon” mention to the label. Wikipedia tells us that “the blue ribbon is a symbol of high quality. The association comes from The Blue Riband, a prize awarded for the fastest crossing of the Atlantic Ocean by passenger liners and, prior to that from Cordon Bleu, which referred to the blue ribbon worn by a particular order of knights. The spelling blue riband is still encountered in most English-speaking countries, but in the United States, the term was altered to blue ribbon, and ribbons of this color came to be awarded for first place in certain athletic or other competitive endeavours (such as county and state fairs).

We’re going to leverage the Ruba regular typeface for this.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

We’ll lodge the two words in the curve below the one assigned to the wheat stalks. That way, they’ll contribute to the visual balance of the label.

Start by writing both words in their spot, in white.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Next, give each word a 36° rotation.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

The result is neat, but can still be improved.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

We’re going to leverage the Arc warp effect to make the type objects follow the badge’s curve more. The only twist is that we’ll also use its Vertical and Horizontal distortion settings to make the short words fit better.

No effect

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Regular arc effect

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

With vertical distortion enabled

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

The values for the word Ribbon are slightly different, to accommodate the longer word:

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

And here’s my obligatory layer palette shot:

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

STEP 7: FINAL VECTOR SMALL ELEMENTS

We’re almost done constructing our label. I just want to add a few little elements to tie everything together.

Eveleth icons has a great little skull available under the number 5, and Ruba ornaments a cool lightning bolt under “V.”

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

We’re going to create a secondary little badge with these elements. First, isolate the skull itself from the crossed bones. You can also clean up the grunge speckles, like we’ve done before.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Once you have the skull all prepped, simply place in the middle of a pair of the lightning bolts, and you’ll be good to go.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

We’re going to place this little guy between our monster’s legs, right above the beer name.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Finally, I’m also going to add this fantastic little rainy cloud icon from Eveleth icons below the word “Beer.” It can be obtained through the letter “x.”

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Our main label is complete!

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

STEP 8: SECONDARY LABEL AND BOTTLE CAP GOODNESS

Yep, we aren’t over this one yet. Most beer bottles will feature a smaller, secondary label on their neck.

I used the same techniques than above to create my secondary label and bottle cap art: icon tracking, shape selecting, etc.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Here are the various shapes I’ve used in its composition:

The base square comes from Eveleth shapes, as does the base shape for its sides. The square’s grunge effect has been removed, while the side shapes’ hasn’t.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

These side shapes are simply the same “x” speech bubble, mirrored, horizontally flipped, and juxtaposed.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

The elk stags come from Eveleth icons.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Finally, the type and rainy cloud come from the main label.

For the bottle cap, I’m using the same base shape from Eveleth shapes.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

I’ve removed the grunge speckles. I then used Object > Path > Offset path to create the concentric, smaller copy of the shape, removed its fill, and gave it a white stroke. This gives us an effect consistent with the one seen on the main badge and on the secondary label.

After that, the monster, and the skull with bolts mini-badge were grabbed from the main label.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

STEP 9: LET’S TALK COLORS

A quick look at my previous reference material, as well as a quick stop by Colourlovers, gave me three palettes to work from.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

My favorite is the first one. It’s actually been inspired by this label from Fitzger’s beer:

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

The original label used a light background, with dark type. Let’s see if we can emulate that.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

While the result is decent, we designed in the opposite manner (dark background, light elements). Switching that during the coloring process makes us loose most of the contrast we managed to create during the creation of the label.

Let’s try to stay true to the original intent.

In this attempt, I’m using the dark blue as my primary color. The gold color is a perfect contrast to that. It serves to highlight the name. The secondary blue helps to strengthen the content hierarchy, by visually pushing the secondary type to the background. One of the issues I have is that the spade looks off, and the red seems like an afterthought.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

I’m happier with this version: more red makes it seem more deliberate. Switching the spade to the dark blue makes it the proper visual weight. Switching the wheat stalks to the light yellow makes them less present. They are ornemental after all, and not the focal point of the design.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Applying the same logic, here’s what our secondary elements could look like.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

STEP 10: JUST A BIT OF TEXTURES

As I said in the beginning, Design Cuts released their first Creative Market product: a set of a 100 grungy paper and card textures.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

We’ll be using a few of these textures to see what the label could look like printed on paper. I’m working in a Photoshop document with the same specs as our Illustrator one.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Let’s start by creating a textured background for our piece. I’m using my bright yellow as my background color.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Let’s add Paper and Cardboard_004.jpg over our background layer, and switch its blending mode to Color burn @ 50% opacity.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

We’ll just need a hair more paper grain in our background to make it present enough. Place Paper and Cardboard_011.jpg in your design, with its blending mode set to Color burn @ 75% opacity.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

To soften the background just a little bit, let’s add Paper and Cardboard_037.jpg, set on Soft light @ 50% opacity.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Don’t forget to organize your layers.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Next, place your main label art in your document, as a smart object.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

We’ll be adding a bit of paper grain to the label only. Start by placing Paper and Cardboard_036 in your document, above your label.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Next, clip it to your label layer (CTRL/CMD+ALT/OPTION+G), so it won’t affect or show on the background.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Then, change its blending mode to Soft light @ 75% opacity.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Next up is Paper and Cardboard_061. Clip it as well to the label.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial
Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Switch its blending mode to Soft light @ 25% opacity.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

The texturing of the piece is complete. Now, we’ll use a texture to age the label design. We’ll be using Paper and Cardboard_040.jpg. Start by opening it up in Photoshop, then copy its content.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Head back to your label file, and add a layer mask to the label layer. Make sure both aren’t linked, so we may modify them independently from one another.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Proceed to ALT/OPTION+CLICK the thumbnail of the layer mask you just created, and paste your texture in the layer mask.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

Resize so the texture covers most of the canvas.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

From there, click on the label layer’s thumbnail to see the art again. Admire the result of your aging work.

The result is a bit too strong.

Massive Artistic Font Bundle beer label tutorial

We’ll fix it by going back to the layer mask, and using Levels (CTRL/CMD+L). Levels allow you to tweak an image by acting on its dark, medium, and bright tones. Since layer masks are limited to grayscale, they’re the perfect tool to tweak the texture that’s in there.

In our case, the result was too strong because the texture had some rather dark spots. So I’m using the levels to create a much lighter, soft-contrasted version of the texture.

The result is much more subtle and acceptable.

And we’re done! Let’s see what this would look like on a bottle:

WHAT WE’RE CREATING:

Hello Design Cutters!

Jo here, with a tutorial that will hopefully bring out your playful side!

We’ll be using a selection of fonts from the current deal to create a fun, cut paper effect postcard featuring a quote from Dr. Seuss, which also features some little friends that have come along for the ride ;)

We’ll be looking at how to use some of the glyphs and extras in the bundle to create some creative effects, type layout and using filters to create a cool diorama effect.

Your tutorial is waiting, so let’s get on our way!

This bundle is something really special, bringing you 14 best-selling, creative font families, complete with web fonts, extended licensing and tons of extras. These fonts are thorough, meticulous in their detail, and just scream professionalism, yet creativity all at the same time.

Enter your email below to download the Blueshift More free fonts, so you can follow along with this tutorial easily.

Step 1:

Open up a new 1748px width x 2480px height document in Photoshop.

To help us with the composition we’ll set up some guides using the rule of thirds. View > New Guide, select horizontal and set the position as 33%:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Repeat this process to set up the following guides:

Horizontal: 33%, 66% ,99%

Vertical: 33%, 66%, 99%

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Make sure you lock the guides in place (View > Lock Guides) as you don’t want to undo all that work! You now have a useful grid to refer back to during the design process.

Step 2:

Now let’s set up the background, for which we’ll need to download a few free resources.

If you did my previous tutorial you’ll recognise this paper texture :)

Paper texture by Jerry Jones
I’ve gone for texture 4, as we want something that’s not overly textured but gives a nice, natural base to build up from. The slightly rough texture also fits in with the mountain imagery and sense of outdoors adventure.

Since the quote features mountains, that’s a nice visual reference to run with. Here are a few we’ll be using for this tutorial, but feel free to search for your own:

Mountain 1
This will be our main background image, which is a great composition to work around and already has a nice, muted tone helping to give a sense of distance.

Mountain 2
This has some lovely shapes and textures which we’ll be borrowing for use in the foreground.

Mountain 3
Again, some great shapes and textures we’ll be using to build up the foreground with.

Place the ‘Mountains 1′ image on to your canvas so the that the tip of the mountain aligns to the first horizontal guideline:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

To fill in the gap above the photo, we’ll use the Eyedropper Tool to select a mid-dark blue tone from the sky (in this case #7C9AA4) and use that to create a gradient to fade into the image.

On a new layer, select the Gradient Tool, making sure it’s set to ‘Foreground to Transparent’. Click slightly below the top of the picture as the gradient start point to make the solid colour fills the white area. Then, hold down the shift key to keep the gradient straight and drag down to slightly above the mountain to create a nice colour fade-in:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

You may need to experiment a bit to get the right colour/fade combination but don’t worry too much about getting it absolutely perfect at this stage. Once the textures and effects have been applied it’ll help everything blend together and you can always come back to tweak the hue/saturation at a later stage if needed.

Place the Old Paper 4 image on to your canvas, scaling to fit. Set the blend mode to Multiply, then reduce the Opacity to 80%:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

You can see that’s already helped to blend in the filler gradient.

Finally for this step, we’ll brighten up the image using a Curves adjustment layer:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

There aren’t any settings you can specify here, but you can see from the screenshot the type of curve we’re going for. Use your artistic judgement here and remember you can always come back to tweak it if needed.

Select all the layers we’ve just created and put them in to a new group (Layer > Group Layers) called “Bkg: Mountain + Sky” to keep things easy to find.

Note: It’s well worth remembering the keyboard shortcut for grouping selected layers (Cmnd + G / Alt + G). It will help keep your workflow super-smooth and organised!

Step 3:

Next up is building up the various paper layers. We’ll be working from the background to the foreground to create the correct layered effect.

Start by setting #0072BC as the background colour.

Then using the Polygonal Lasoo tool, draw a large block with a small dip in the middle, like in the image below:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

The reason we’re using the Polygonal Lasoo Tool to create the shapes is to mimic the effect of using a craft-knife to cut out paper shapes. We want to give the image a loose, fun feel and the straight edges gives a nice, simple paper cut effect. You can create a curved illusion by reducing the distance between points.

With the selection still active, press Cmnd + Delete (Alt + Backspace on windows) to fill with the background colour.

Now it’s time to get some fonts involved!

Using the same blue as the shape we’ve just created, select Monstrinhos as the font, set the size to 80pt and type a lowercase ‘o':

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

It’s a whale! He’s up in the sky so you can see the font more clearly, but let’s move him back down to the water where I’m sure he’ll be happier ;)

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Making sure there isn’t a gap between the whale and water, merge the two layers together.

To create a layered 3D effect, we’ll be adding a drop shadow with the following settings:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Drop Shadow Settings
Blend Mode: Multiply (default)
Color: #344960
Opacity: 75% (default)
Angle: 129
Distance: 6px (default)
Spread: 0% (default)
Size: 50px

Note: The angle and opacity will be the same on all the Drop Shadow effects we will create in this tutorial.

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

On a new layer create a Foreground to Transparent gradient using the colour #6dcff7 and clip it to the layer below by pressing Alt on your keyboard whilst hovering your cursor between the two layers. When you see the cursor icon change to a square with a downwards arrow, click. This makes the effect only apply to the layer directly below, effectively creating a clipping mask.

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Change the blend mode to Multiply to create a subtle gradient shadow. The gradient transition is concentrated towards the top of the image because that’s the portion that’ll be visible below the other layers we’re going to build up, and helps add an authentic layered effect.

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Create a clipped Hue/Saturation adjustment layer with the following settings:

Hue/Saturation
Colorize: No
Hue: 0
Saturation: +40
Lightness: +50

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Now we’re going to apply a paper-texture overlay. As a serious Design Cutter, I’ve no doubt you have a few favourite paper textures in your collection ;)

You can either take a pick from your own resources, or to copy the tutorial exactly, download this freebie from Design Cuts and place Paper and Cardboard_019 on to your canvas.

NOTE: This paper texture pack is a free sample pack, taken from our new 100 Grungy Paper and Card Textures Pack, currently available at Creative Market.

I’ve scaled and positioned the texture so a nice creased bit sits over the whale:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Don’t worry about the space to the left – we’ll be covering that up as we build up the foreground.

Change the blend mode to Overlay and clip the layer. You can see how it really adds authenticity to our papercut style:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Finally for this step, duplicate the Old Paper 4 texture we used in the background, and move to the top of the layers stack. Reduce the Opacity to 65% and clip the layer to add a nice grungy feel to the texture and tie it in with the background.

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Woop! Even with just one font we’ve already got a cool little image building up :)

Let’s finish off with some housekeeping and put all these layers in to a folder called “1 Paper Mt”. With the ‘paper’ layers, we’ll go from 1 as the furthest in the background getting closer as the number increases. Use a naming system that’ll make things easiest to find for you.

Step 4:

From the Mountain images we downloaded earlier, paste Mountain 3 on to your canvas to use as a reference for creating the foreground shapes. Duplicate and hide the layer for now – we’ll be using this as a ‘master layer’ to create more duplicates from later.

On a new layer, use the Polygonal Lasoo Tool to loosely trace the shape of the far right mountain, taking it down to the bottom of the canvas:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Select #20BC9A as the foreground colour and with the selection still active, use the Paint Bucket Tool to fill the selection:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Hide the photo we’ve just used for reference so we can see how this fits with our image so far.

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

We’ll now dig in to our freebie of the Blueshift More – a super fun collection of glyphs.

With the same colour selected and the font size approximately 70pt, type “;” (semicolon) and position so that it sits towards the upper right of our shape, like a quirky tree:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

As before, merge the two layers and add a Drop Shadow with the following settings:

Drop Shadow Settings
Blend Mode: Multiply (default)
Color: #344960
Opacity: 75% (default)
Angle: 129
Distance: 6px (default)
Spread: 8%
Size: 20px

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial
The smaller shadow makes the layer look like it’s closer to the one below, as if it was sitting directly on top of it.

We want to add a bit of extra interest to this layer by giving it a collaged effect. Duplicate the Mountain 3 image and clip it to the shape below:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

As before, create a Foreground to Transparent gradient on a new clipped layer to add some depth:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Then set the blend mode to Multiply:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Create a new clipped Hue/Saturation Adjustment layer with the following settings:

Hue/Saturation
Colorize: Yes
Hue: 167
Saturation: 18
Lightness: +17

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Then to add some texture, duplicate the Old Paper 4 layer from the previous group, keeping the same settings:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

You can now start to see the layered effect take shape and hopefully get an idea of how the fonts and glyphs can be used to create some really nice, tactile effects.

Pop these layers in to a group called “2 Paper Mt” to keep everything tidy :)

Step 5:

To create the rest of the foreground layers, the steps are essentially the same:

1. Draw your shape with the Polygonal Lasoo Tool
2. Fill with colour
3. Add glyph shapes from fonts
4. Merge
5. Add drop shadow
6. Clip images/texture layers
7. Adjust hue/saturation (optional)
8. Add clipped, same colour to transparent gradient for depth (multiply)

Rather than repeat the same steps over and over, I’ll provide an overview for the remainder of the foreground layers below, specifying the fonts and settings used.

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

This should hopefully mean you won’t get bored reading the same thing and also give you some creative freedom to play around.

With the paper textures, feel free to delve in to your own collection! I’ve used a combination of the Design Cuts sample from earlier and this fantastic selection of 10 Crumpled Paper Textures from Outside the Fray.

Ok, let’s do this!

Beige layer (3 Paper Mt)
Fill Color: #F5EDD9
Font/Glyph: Blueshift More, lowercase “o”
Texture 1: Paper and Cardboard_020 (Design Cuts), Multiply,
Texture 2: Old Paper 4, Overlay, Opacity 30%

Drop Shadow Settings
Blend Mode: Multiply (default)
Color: #000000
Opacity: 75% (default)
Angle: 129
Distance: 6px (default)
Spread: 20%
Size: 70px

Yellow layer (4 Paper Mt)
Fill Color: #F7E800
Font/Glyph: Blueshift More, uppercase “F”
Texture 1: Old Paper 4, Multiply, Opacity 65%
Texture 2: OTF_Crumpled_Paper_04, Multiply

Drop Shadow Settings
Blend Mode: Multiply (default)
Color: #000000
Opacity: 75% (default)
Angle: 129
Distance: 6px (default)
Spread: 3%
Size: 55px

Pink layer (5 Paper Mt)
Fill Color: #BD4D66
Font/Glyph: Blueshift More, uppercase “I”
Texture 1: Mountain 3, Normal
Texture 2: OTF_Crumpled_Paper_02, Soft Light, 100%
Texture 3: Old Paper 4, Multiply, Opacity 69%

Hue/Saturation
Colorize: Yes
Hue: 324
Saturation: +40
Lightness: +50

Drop Shadow Settings
Blend Mode: Multiply (default)
Color: #000000
Opacity: 75% (default)
Angle: 129
Distance: 10px
Spread: 3%
Size: 50px

Once you’ve created your cutout layers, we’ll all a #C7B299 gradient above them on a new layer to add some depth:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Change the blend mode to multiply:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Step 6:

We’re following a similar approach for the next papercut layer, but rather than draw our own shape as we have been doing, we’ll use the Magic Wand tool to get a detailed, ragged edge which also looks a bit like torn paper.

From the mountain images we downloaded earlier, paste Mountain 2 on to your canvas and position towards at the bottom:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Select the Magic Wand Tool and set the tolerance to 50. Click on a blue area of the sky, holding down the Shift key to make multiple selections. For the clouds, reduce the tolerance to 30 and click on them whilst still holding down Shift

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

With the selection still active, press Cmnd + I (Alt + I) to invert the selection. Then making sure the layer with the image is activated, create a Layer Mask:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

We need to fill in the upper part of the Layer Mask, that was outside of the original image.

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

The quickest way to to this is to hold down Alt on the keyboard and click on the Layer Mask to view it directly. Then, use the Paint Bucket Tool to fill the upper part with black.

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Click anywhere on the visibility column to return to your image.

Now let’s add a Drop Shadow:

Drop Shadow Settings
Blend Mode: Multiply (default)
Color: #000000
Opacity: 75% (default)
Angle: 129
Distance: 16px
Spread: 26%
Size: 81px

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

As with the previous layers, we’ll add a clipped #1AA083 gradient to add a bit more depth:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Then set the blend mode to Multiply:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

For the textures and saturation, add the following as individual clipped layers:

Texture 1: Paper and Cardboard_020 (Design Cuts), Overlay
Texture 2: Old Paper 4, Multiply, Opacity 65%

Hue/Saturation
Colorize: Yes
Hue: 153
Saturation: +40
Lightness: +15

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

We’ve now created a fun, layered set of mountains to give the image a sense of depth. It’s still a bit plain at the moment though, so let’s add another little creature :)

Step 7:

Create a new group called “Elephant” to put the following layers in, so that things are easy to find.

With Monstrinhos as the font and #F5EDD9 as the colour, type an uppercase ‘L’ to get our elephant monster.

We’ll add a small Drop Shadow to make it look like he’s sitting just on top of the paper:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Drop Shadow Settings
Blend Mode: Multiply (default)
Color: #000000
Opacity: 75% (default)
Angle: 129
Distance: 6px (default)
Spread: 0% (default)
Size: 6px (default)

Create a new clipped layer using OTF_Crumpled_Paper_02 to add a crumpled paper texture. You can see in the screenshot below I’ve reduced the image size to concentrate as much texture in the space as possible:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial
Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

We’ve now completed our backdrop! Before moving on to the next step where we’ll create a cool diorama effect, take a quick break to rest your eyes and grab a glass of water to stay refreshed :)

Step 8:

Welcome back!

Next up, select all the layers and groups we’ve just made, except for our ‘master’ layers to create texture copies from (move these to the top so they’re outside of the group we’re about to make). Create a new group for the selected layers called ‘Background to fade”.

Note: Make a duplicate of the group and hide it – this is just so we have a safety net should you want to come back and change anything later.

Activate the original group and merge together.

Using the Elliptical Marquee Tool, draw an oval about centrally to the image. This will be our area of focus, and the areas outside this will be blurred.

With the selection still visible, go to Select >Modify > Feather and set the value to a generous 50px. Click ‘Ok’.

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Invert the selection by pressing Shift + Cmnd + I (Shift + Alt + I) on your keyboard.

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

With the selection still active go to Filter > Blur > Lens Blur. This will switch to a new window where you can see the effect:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Leave all the settings as default, but make sure the radius is set to 25. Click ‘OK’ to return to our working document.

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

The blur surrounding blur works at tricking the eye in to thinking the object has a greater depth of field, creating the ‘diorama effect’.

Step 9:

Right, now it’s time to play with some fonts!

On a new layer, select Blueshift More as the font, set the colour to #ffffff and size to about 200pt.

Type a lowercase “a” to get a big, fluffy cloud:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Rotate it anticlockwise slightly and moved it further in to the left corner. We’ll then add a big, soft drop shadow to give it the impression of hovering considerably far in front of the background:

Drop Shadow Settings
Blend Mode: Multiply (default)
Color: #344960
Opacity: 75% (default)
Angle: 129
Distance: 100px
Spread: 0% (default)
Size: 150px

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Create a new layer behind the cloud. To give the impression it’s hanging from above, we’ll draw a thin line to mimic some thread.

Select a simple, solid round brush set to 1px and colour to #F5EDD9. Hold down the Shift key on your keyboard whilst drawing a line from behind the cloud up to just over the top of the canvas. Holding the Shift key will ensure you get a perfectly straight line.

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial
Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

As with the other steps, let’s add a paper texture for extra authenticity.

I’ve used OTF_Crumpled_Paper_07 and clipped the layer. As we want a white paper cloud, we don’t need to make any changes to the blend mode or opacity – it’s good to go ‘as is’ :)

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Step 10:

Time to start writing our quote to feed the sense of adventure!

Using Blueshift as the font type “You’re off U”. Then, go back and highlight the “U” and change the font family to Blueshift More. This gives us a nice handwritten “to”.

We’ll tweak the formatting a bit to get it to fit in the cloud. Here’s a quick checklist:

– Set the layer blend mode to Multiply
– Centrally justify the text
– Start a new line after “You’re”
– “You’re” is 45pt in size, colour #0072BC
– “Off to” is approx 30pt in size, colour #F06EAA

Tilt and align so that it sits nicely in the cloud, similar to the image below:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

We can now start piecing together the rest of the quote.

Step 11:

Select Wanderlust as the font, size at 80pt and colour as #FFFFFF and type “great places”.

Position the text so that the tops of the “t” and “l” go off the top of the canvas to mimic the effect of the hanging thread of the cloud.

For the arrow, select Monstrinhos as the font, 80pt as the size and #FFF200 as the colour. Then, type “-” (hyphen) to get the arrow. This adds a nice stylistic element, enhancing the meaning of the phrase and adding some fun dynamism.

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

On a new layer, select Eveleth Regular as the font, size at 50pt and #FFFFFF as the colour and type “Today”. Duplicate the layer and change the font to Eveleth Shadow and colour to #FFF200.

Position so it’s similar to below:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Step 12:

Next, we want to duplicate the group of layers that we created for our opening cloud and move it below the original group. This is because we want this layer to appear as though it is behind the original layer.

Having the opening statement as the top, furthest forward layer helps guide the viewer as to where they need to start reading, and the order of the text.

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

I’ve flipped the cloud shape horizontally and stretched it out so that it doesn’t look like an exact copy. This’ll also allow us to include a longer line of text. You can also move and transform the thread it’s hanging from so that it stretches up beyond the top of the canvas:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Can you see how the drop shadow from the top cloud really adds to the sense of depth here?

For the text, type “is your day” using Blueshift Regular, size 25pt and colour #1AA083, positioning to fit in the cloud.

Select the “your” portion of the text and change the font to Monstro and set the colour to #F06EAA to keep it looking eclectic and playful:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Make sure the layer blend mode is set to Multiply so that the paper texture comes through.

To keep things fun and to act as a guide to bring the eye from “Today” to the next part of the text, we’ll add this friendly little fellow:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

You can get him by selecting Blueshift More as the font, size at 55pt and colour as #FFFFFF. Place his layer to the bottom of the group so that it looks like he’s peeking out from behind the cloud, and adjust the angle as necessary.

Step 13:

This font bundle includes so many playful glyphs, it’s great fun finding creative ways of incorporating them in to the image.

In this instance, we’re going to add a flag to the top of the mountain for the word “your” – really making it clear who the mountain belongs to ;)

To get the flag, select Eveleth Icons as the font, set the size to 62pt and colour as #20BC9A. Set the blend mode to Color Burn and type “£” (pound sign) to get the flag icon. Position so that it sits nicely on top of the mountain peak.

For “Your”, you’ll need Blueshift Stick as the font, 33pt as the size and #FFFFFF as the colour.

Place the text so that it sits in the middle of the flag, tweaking the angle slightly:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Step 14:

We now need to add a big, bold MOUNTAIN.

To get this, select Blueshift Stick as the font, set the size to 95pt and set the colour to #A4FEFE. Position it so that the end of the central letter “N” sits below the flag, helping the words flow in to one another.

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

It’s a bit tricky to see at this stage, so we’ll add a soft drop shadow just to bring it forwards a bit.

Drop Shadow Settings
Blend Mode: Multiply (default)
Color: #344960
Opacity: 75% (default)
Angle: 129
Distance: 5px
Spread: 10%
Size: 150px

You can see that makes the text stand out a lot more:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Finally, add a clipped paper texture layer (I’ve gone for Paper and Cardboard_020 from Design Cuts) and set the blend mode to Overlay:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Step 15:

The process remains pretty similar for the remainder of the text, with just the specific settings that need editing.

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

To keep this from getting too long, I’ll provide an overview of the settings for the rest of the text to help you whizz through!

Text: “Is Waiting…”

Font: Monstro
Size: 25pt
Colour: #FFFFFF
Layer: Normal

Text: “Banner (So…)”
Font: Blueshift More
Size: 180pt
Colour: #FFFFFF
Layer: Normal
Clipped Texture: Old Paper 4

Hue/Saturation
Colorize: Yes
Hue: 190
Saturation: 55
Lightness: +35

Drop Shadow Settings
Blend Mode: Multiply (default)
Color: #000000
Opacity: 75% (default)
Angle: 129
Distance: 10px
Spread: 0% (default)
Size: 50px

Text: “So…”
Font: Monstro
Size: 50pt
Colour: #F06EAA
Layer: Normal

Text: “Dr. Seuss”
Font: Wanderlust Regular
Size: 60pt
Colour: #F5EDD9
Layer: Normal, Opacity 90%

Text: “Get on your way!”
Font: Eveleth Clean Regular
Size: 33pt – 45pt
Colour: #FFFFFF
Layer: Normal, Opacity 90%
Clipped Texture: OTF_Crumpled_Paper_07

On the “Get on your way” text, I’ve adjusted the size and shifted the baseline on random letters to give it a playful, jiggly look which also reflects the jagged edge of the mountain.

You can adjust these settings by selecting the individual letter and going to the Character panel:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Finally, add a new clipped Levels adjustment layer to brighten up the text, setting the highlights to 230:

Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial
Monsters and Fonts Papercut Tutorial

Step 16:

Finally, to fill up the spaces around the text, we’ll add a few more creatures from the Monstrinhos set to finish off the foreground.

The techniques are exactly the same as before, using clipped paper textures and drop shadows to create an authentic, layered papercut effect.

Pick some of your favourites to decorate the image :)

      Tom has contacted all the designers last night, and is just waiting to hear back from them all. Once we have the details I’ll be sure to email you, and we’ll also update the deal page.

  5. WOW Tom:

    I’ve never seen these! FABBY collection!

    Would be great for some one-word posters! VERY BOLD and TO THE POINT!!!

    EXCELLENT JOB!

    I feel another video coming on ;)

    Big fan. I will be using this immediately.

  9. Lisa says:

    I no longer purchase fonts elsewhere… I wait to see if you will get them in an amazing bundle! Love these!

    • Tina Muller says:

      Aw thanks so much Lisa! We really appreciate your support and loyalty. If you have particular forts in mind that you’d like to see in one of our bundles, please do let us know, and we’ll try and get in touch with the designers.

  10. Alejandro Schott says:

    Shut up and take my money….

    As im Chilean, I’m super exited about the PINTANINA. I have literally lived all my youth seeing (and reading) this font. Its crazy cool to use.
    google: CONDORITO PLOP
    You will get some inspiration for this font.

    I WANT this! Just don’t know what to do with it…. Buy now, ask later? ;-)

    • Tina Muller says:

      I find the fonts themselves hugely inspiring actually. :) Which one is your favourite?

      • Anna-Emilia says:

        I find them too very inspiring, but my job at the moment really doesn’t require new fonts. But who cares, if these fonts support Finnish as well, I will get them. Do they support Finnish / Scandinavian languages?
        And my favourite is Cookies&Cream <3

  13. Mark Warner says:
    Excellent - 5 starsExcellent - 5 starsExcellent - 5 starsExcellent - 5 starsExcellent - 5 stars

    My first deal… and pretty sure that it won’t be my last.

    I’m looking forward to trying these out. Thanks!

  14. Danny says:

    How many of the fonts have international character sets?

    • Tina Muller says:

      Hey Danny, we’re reaching out to the designers now to find out which languages are supported. Once we know I’ll drop you an email, and we’ll also update the deal page.

  15. This is GREAT whatta collection!!!!!!!! :O
    Def a must have!

    • Tina Muller says:

      :D Glad to hear you’re loving these fonts. My favourite is Cookies and Cream.

        Hi Tina :)
        Definitely yes, I just purchased today these awesome fonts.
        Cookies and cream it’s a beautiful font, mine is Brave, those
        bonuses rules, by the by those preferred fonts were created
        by Nicky L.

  16. Jody says:

    Oh why do you tempt me so?!?! I only have PSE so I can’t use all the beautiful extras I see here… And yet somehow I still want it all… Lol. Ah well, perhaps I will get CS one day?? Heehee, brilliant again guys!!

  17. Melissa Wullur says:
    Excellent - 5 starsExcellent - 5 starsExcellent - 5 starsExcellent - 5 starsExcellent - 5 stars

    These fonts are awesome! Trying them out as I type this review. Oh, and thanks for the limited time bonus for the previous Monster Fonts bundle. Was feeling so bad when I found out that I missed on that, but now I’m as happy as a kid owning a candy store!

    • Tina Muller says:

      Glad we could make you a little happier with the two font bundles, Melissa. :) I really hope you’ll enjoy working with them, and feel free to send us some of your new work. I’d love to see what you’re creating with the new fonts.

  18. Jerry Rowland says:

    Yet another unbeatable deal! Keep up the great work!

  19. Richard says:

    Time to get the credit card out. A fantastic bundle once again.

  20. Chris Ford says:

    Arrggghh! Must…stop…buying…fonts!

  21. Thess says:

    I am in loooooove :)
    Amazing fonts!!! <3

  22. Grim says:

    Looks like a great deal! Too bad I don’t work solely in the English language, I need the ÅÄÖ. And if I understand it correctly only one of these fonts contains those letters? :(

    • Tina Muller says:

      Hey Grim, Tom is just dropping an email to all the designers to find out which languages are supported. As soon as we know I’ll send you an email and upadte the deal page.

  23. Kristian says:

    Are the Scandinavian Letters included in all/some of the packages?

    • Tina Muller says:

      Hey Kristian, we’re finding this out for you now. I’ll drop you an email as soon as we know and update the deal page for everyone else.

  24. Daniel Kelby says:

    Another awesome deal, guys – cannot wait to use the ‘Brave’ font! I’ve been looking for one like it for ages, so to get it bundled with all of these other treats is so cool! Thanks :)

    • Tina Muller says:

      Glad we could help out, Daniel. I’d love to see what you create with ‘Brave’, so please do send your designs over to us. :)

    I’m enthused about the deal, and sure enough I threw in my cc. But … when and how do I get access to the fonts? Haven’t gotten email as proposed in some 30 minutes. Am I too impatient?

    • Tina Muller says:

      Hey Norbert. I’ve dropped you an email about this. We should have this working for you in no time.

      • Norbert Fuerst says:

        Thanks for getting me started — my fault to not acknowledge the big “complete order” button once PayPal sent me back to you page. Now busy checking what I got.

        • Tina Muller says:

          Yeah that’s a newish feature on a lot of online stores. It provides extra security, and I’ve seen this on a lot of websites now. Glad you got it all sorted in the end. :)

  26. Dan Lewis says:

    Hey Tom,

    I just found one of your deals about the vintage logo collection. I NEED THIS!! It says that the deal has expired. Can you tell me where I can go to purchase this? Thank you – much appreciated!!

    Ciao

    OK, so here’s my observations:
    This is quite a massive bunch of fonts — totaling 187 files in a mix of TrueType, OTF, Web, etc. Amazing.
    However, there are some fonts which do not support anything beyond the US (i.e. no Euro sign, no ASCII-8 characters, such as äöüß …), namely:
    Abegnale, Brave, CookiesAndCream, GL Steak Brush, Jackham Clean, Scamfuk and (despite its German name) Wanderlust.

    Well, pity, but then these are still fine for typesetting — not so much for websites where you can’t fake umlaut-dots on the fly easily. But hey, that only 6 out of 14 and the remaining 8 look perfectly gorgeous.

    The Eveleth alone (24 faces, each at OTF and EOT, including dingbats) is worth the money.

    After all: thanks a ton, I’m looking forward to enhance some of my projects and sites with these gorgeous contemporary fonts.

    • Tina Muller says:

      Hey Norbert, we’re actually just finding out which languages are supported by each of the fonts. Once we know more, I’ll be sure to email you with the details and update the deal page.

    • Deirdre Saoirse Moen says:

      As someone who already had Eveleth, it’s also a bundle that’s worth it for everything else.

  28. Catharine Barker says:

    Disappointed that I can’t access these in Quark. Also, the font Eveleth is giving me a corrupt error in Suitcase Fusion.

  29. Natalie says:
    Excellent - 5 starsExcellent - 5 starsExcellent - 5 starsExcellent - 5 starsExcellent - 5 stars

    There will come a day when I am not compelled to buy every deal y’all assemble, but today is not that day. Thank you so much for a great set of fonts! I’m looking forward to playing with them!

    • Tina Muller says:

      :) You’re so welcome! I really hope you’ll love working with them. It’d be great to see what you create with the new fonts, so please do send some of your work over.

  30. Robin Matlack says:

    This is such an amazing deal that at first I wondered…”how do they do it?” Bottom line is – I don’t care just as long as you keep doing it – I will keep buying! Just to fuel the design tool addict that I am….More! More!

    • Tina Muller says:

      :D Lots of hard work! But we love it really, and it’s so exciting to work with so many talented designers who provide us with the resources.

  31. Jenny cimino says:

    I just downloaded and the PDF guide wasn’t included. How can I download it?

    • Tina Muller says:

      Hey Jenny, You can find the PDF guide in your helpful documents folder. You will have to download that separately form the font bundle. I hope this helps.

  32. Awesome Deal! Thank you so much! :-)

    • Tina Muller says:

      You’re so welcome, Christoph. I’d love to see what you create with the new fonts, so please do send us some of your designs. :)

  34. Alexis Yang XY says:

    Great deal! Just a question: I couldn’t find the Cookie and Cream extras as an extra OTF font in my download (just Cookiesandcream.otf). Is there another way to obtain this extras font?

    Now if you would only bring back the vintage bundle :( I found your site from a link to this bundle, but it was already too late purchase… Here’s my official humble request to please bring it back, or a similar vintage bundle (loved the balloons!).

    Keep up the great bundles!

    • Tina Muller says:

      Hey Holly, Thanks so much fort he kind words about the fonts. I’ll drop you an email now about the bundle that contains the balloons. :)

    • Tina Muller says:

      Hey Liv, Thanks a ton for your kind words! The whole team really appreciates it. Tom is actually just working on our next font bundle as is trying to secure some scripty fonts. Thanks so much for the feedback! :)

  37. Francisco Castanon says:

    Thanks for offering such an incredible deal. New to DC and kicking myself for missing the previous bundles. Definitely won’t happen again.

    • Tina Muller says:

      Thank you so much for the kind words! It really means the world to the whole team. :) The best way to ensure that you don’t miss a deal is to join our free newsletter, by signing up at http://www.designcuts.com. Also if you let me know which bundles you were interested in particularly, I can make sure to drop you an email as soon as they’re live again.

  38. Craig Brown says:

    As usual, another value-packed deal, leading the way for designers deals in terms of quality, value, and lack of hidden catches. Design Cuts makes the world a better place for me as a designer.

    • Tina Muller says:

      Thank you so much Craig! We all really appreciate your kind words. There’s nothing worse than getting what looks like a great deal, only to be disappointed. That’s exactly why we try to keep things as transparent as possible, so the DC community knows exactly what they’re getting with each bundle. Thanks as always for the support, and if we can help with anything in particular just let me know :).

  39. steve says:

    How many of these have/contain the £€ symbol.

    Find it rather annoying when typeface designers can’t look across the pond and think – lets add £ and €

    • Tom Ross says:

      Great question Steve. I’ve just tested this myself and the following fonts support these characters: Eveleth, Blueshift, Monstro, Cucho, Ruba, Pintanina. I totally agree that font designers should bear them in mind though, and this is something that I’ll mention to the other font designers today. Thanks for your feedback, as it is definitely something we will consider for future font bundles.

    I would love to know about the previous font deals!
    I would love the first two font deals if possible.

    The Ultimate Creative Font Bundle (Web Fonts Included) Just $25

    Huge Creative Font Bundle (Including Web Fonts) Just $28

    Can’t hurt to ask!

    • Tina Muller says:

      Hey Jerry, I’m afraid both these deals are well and truly finished now. We do sometimes bring an older deal back as a bonus to a new one, however we have no plans for re-running these two font bundles at the moment. Should we decide to bring these back as a special though, I’ll be sure to drop you an email.

      Also I know that Tom is already working on the next font bundle. In order for you to not miss out on any future deals, you can sign up to our free newsletter here: http://www.designcuts.com/.

    Well, what shall I say… that’s the fifth deal I bought over here and I am happy like a kid in a candystore :-) There are many great websites with design deals out there – some of them run for years. But seriosly: Designcuts beats them all. The savings announced over here are no fake promises – just head over to the usual font sites and compare the prices for all the fonts. You will notice that indeed for 29$ you will not even get one of them with included webfonts and extended licence. Again, I am just blown away by such a great deal. My wallet says: please stop. But my designer heart says: keep on the good work ;-)

    • Tina Muller says:

      What an amazing comment, Michael. Thank you so much or the kind words. Really we can’t thank you enough for this great feedback. We really appreciate it.

    Thanks again to all of you for helping to make keeping up easier (and a lot more cost effective).

    But I’m having trouble locating the extras for Cookies & Cream!

    It was noted that it was added as an extra font, but it’s not in the pack I downloaded.

    • Tina Muller says:

      Hey Michael,You can find the extra characters in the Stylistic Alternates and Glyphs tab. They tend top be a little tricky to find, so I’ll drop you an email now to explain it all further.

    Darn, I missed this deal. Looks like some great stuff. Hopefully you’ll do it again soon. Cheers for the great work.

    • Tina Muller says:

      I’m afraid this deal is now well and truly finished, so I won’t be able to set you up with it at the moment. We will however re-run this deal as a bonus to our next font bundle. I can’t say yet when this will be, but it should be live again within the next couple of months or so. I’ll be sure to drop you an email as soon as the Massive Artistic Font Bundle is available again.

      • Herbert Nortom says:

        Hello, would you mind dropping me an E-Mail as well as soon as the Massive Artistic Font Bundle is available again? I would really appreciate it!

        • Tina Muller says:

          Hey Herbert, I’m afraid this deal is now completely finished, but I’ll be sure to email you as soon as it is live again. We’ll definitely re-run this with our next font bundle, which should come out within the next couple of months.

      • Herbert Nortom says:

        The “broke” joke was pretty bad regarding how cheap the deals are.. :O

        • Tina Muller says:

          Haha, nah we all have our design budgets. We’ll try and bring out some smaller deals in the future to cater for this too.

  77. Seed Adegbite says:

    This font is awesome, but is there still any chance of getting it now?

    • Tina Muller says:

      Hey Seed, As I just mentioned to Malcolm Steward, this deal is now fully finished, but will be re-run within a couple of months or so. I’ll contact you as soon as it’s live again.

  78. Shawni Hogan says:

    Love all of the fonts that were listed in the bundle deal. I’m bummed I’ve just recently come across your site. If you could send an email to me as well, announcing when this bundle will be release again, that would be super!

    Keep up the awesome work!

    • Tina Muller says:

      Hey Shawni, Absolutely. I’ll be sure to email you as soon as the Massive Artistic Font Bundle is available again :)

  79. DK says:

    This pack is awesome, the only bummer is on the GL Steak Brush I don’t get those 4 vectors. Would have loved to screen print some cards with that. But really not that big of a deal because this pack is ridiculously awesome.

    Awesome bundle…I have had my eye on some of these fonts! Will this be available in the future?

    Kindest Regards

      Hopefully yes, I’ll be sure to notify you if we do re-run this deal Eleasha :). Thanks for all the support!

    Hey guys, I just bought your latest deal and would love some notice if you run these Font deals (so bummed about the Monster Bundle) again… love these too much!

  85. Ivan says:

    Is it too late to get this one as well?

    • Tina Muller says:

      Hey Ivan, I’m afraid this deal is now well and truly finished. But I will definitely email you as soon as it is available again.
