Custom Fonts & Bespoke Fonts - A Font Solution Just For You

Type.co.uk is a leading, independent online font retailer and part of the Fontworks organisation. Through Fontworks we provide a comprehensive range of bespoke font creation and manufacturing services under our 'Type UK Design' studio name.

Fontworks (by definition) is a place where fonts are made. But we don’t just ‘make’ fonts we create tailored font solutions to meet your specific requirements. Working in partnership with you (or your agency), from concept to delivery, we can turn your ideas into reality and deliver polished font products for any purpose or environment.

We can work from any brief and are used to meeting very tight deadlines. Whether you need a single custom font or a bespoke font family, our extensive knowledge, design expertise and versatility ensures that we deliver the highest quality products for any purpose or environment.

You can also have complete exclusivity and ownership giving you the freedom to use your custom font for any application without worrying about licensing issues. A custom font investment is usually far more cost effective and has longer term value than paying for a standard font with licensing that can be restrictive, variable and expensive.

Fontworks has been commissioned to design and create a broad spectrum of custom font work from high profile logo design to branding font solutions and corporate identity typeface ranges. International and top clients include: Orange, easyJet, NBC TV, Visa Europe, RBS, Royal Mail, Shell, Coutts Bank, KPMG, Unilever, AstraZeneca, Lego, Volvo, Channel 4, BT, Deloites, Vauxhall, BG Group, BP, Citroën, Hewlett Packard, Sainsburys and many more.

So why not try our friendly, reliable and flexible service for the creation of your custom font?

We can provide:

  • Advice and consultation to discuss and define your requirements
  • Formal quotations
  • Professional advice on all legal, copyright, IP, trademark and licensing issues
  • Professional contract drafting to cover custom font assignment and any special conditions
  • Highly versatile design expertise
