As one can expect of any graphic designer:  they all seem to be freaky font addicts!  Well, I'm not any different and share a few of my favourites with you.  Especially after DuWayne (a well known Cape Tonian photographer) actually quizzed me this week, as to where I buy my fonts.  Thought it would be nice to share this info with all of the other font freaks like me.

And as inspiration to DIY brides:
The key to DIY wedding invitations that don’t look DIY? A fabulous font! This post doesn’t even begin to do justice to these beautiful typefaces, so make sure to click through and see them in action – some of them will really blow you away.
