The Fairwater Collection

Fairwater’s aesthetic derives from three sources: the cursive handwriting styles popularized in the early to mid-1900s, the simplified, forgiving letterforms of tattoo lettering – and the pictorial themes that informed early-to-mid 20th-century naval tattoos. The Fairwater family includes two highly legible sans and script faces – friendly, monoline, and casual – in light, regular and bold weights. As with many of her faces, Laura can’t resist adding a plethora of swashes and alternates to the script version – 465 to be exact – for a total of 2,230 glyphs. Fairwater also includes four shower serif faces for use at display sizes, culminating in the vaguely botanical “Sailor” and elegantly striped “Deco” weights.

The Fairwater Collection

Fairwater also includes a powerful decorative font entitled DIY Lines: 250 ornamental characters of ships, anchors, oars, knots, rope, botanicals, diamonds, arrows and more. With strokes and proportions that perfectly complement the type, DIY Lines expands the Fairwater family into a powerful design kit that evokes 20th-century craftsmanship, maritime themes, and colorful, salty personalities.

    • SJ DC

      Hey Sherry,

      Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a comment!

      The great news is, fonts can literally be used in all types of text and design based programmes once they have been installed onto your computer. Please note however that Stylistic Alternates will require professional design software such as Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign or Inkscape.

      If you need any help installing these, then feel free to pop us over an email on and we can help :)

    I’ve been wanting Fairwater for a long time, but didn’t quite have enough need to justify buying it.

    It’s your birthday, but I get the presents. One question, though…

    Will there by any chance be some chocolate cake for me?

    • Carol Stratford

      Hey Ron,

      I hope you are keeping well- it has literally been months since we have spoke :)

      I am so happy to hear that Fairwater was on your wish list and you’ve managed to pick it up as part of the birthday event!

      Hmm whilst I don’t know how tasty cake would be once we sent it from here Ron, if you want to pop an email over to me, I can see if I can send a sweet treat :)
