    Beautiful site indeed, but the service is not very competitive. Fonts.com offers a subscription with 2200 fonts for $10/m. They also offer free trials of every font and a one stop shop for fonts not in their subscriptions. Adobe's TypeKit has a similar offering.

    How will your 75 fonts compete with this? It also doesn't help that you ask people to pay without specifying anywhere what the fonts are, leading me to question whether you have quality fonts or not.

      We're not here to compete with anyone. It's a new service with our own fonts. All the introductory fonts in the library are all new and exclusive to Fontstore. And the subscription offering is only for designers.

        In that case you might want to focus more on the fonts themselves. If you say 'subscribe to this service and you'll get fonts' people will assume they are getting popular fonts. If you showcase the actual fonts, then you are using them to make the sale and people can decide for themselves if they like your work and if they are interested.

        Not here to compete? Thats simply impossible.
