Announcments

October 2019
Mastercam 2020
Just a smidge late in announcing this. The licensing arrangement was made years ago, but the product came out more recently. Nonetheless I am excited to announce the Mastercam now has a single line font feature. Not only that they licensed the Simple Sans CJK font to include with Mastercam 2020 and versions that follow. Appreciate their dedication to providing their clients with important features and a font that will meet the needs of their users worldwide.

August 2016
Solid Edge ST9 & Enroute 6 have added single line font features
I'm pleased to announce that new releases of both Solid Edge ST9 and Enroute 6 have added single line font features to properly render OneLineFonts optimally formatted OC font format. All future versions of these programs will also properly render the OC format.

April 2016
CJK font done!!
It has been a long time in the making. I am both pleased & relieved to announce that I have completed the CJK (Chinese, Japanese, Korean) language extension to the Simple Sans single line stick font. I have also further added to the Cyrillic, Greek, Hebrew, and Latin text. The font contains over 35,000 glyphs!

February 2016
Modern Narrow, Arlune, and Impact
It's been a while since posting an announcement so we'll play a little bit of catch up here. A narrower version of "Modern" has been designed in order to provide clean text that uses a very minimal amount of space. Arlune, a conventional (i.e., not single line) has been completed. It's an interesting typeface where the letter forms have curved elements that become the understated serifs. Impact CAD, buy Arden Software, has retroactively updated their 2015 software to properly render OneLineFonts optimally formatted OC font format. All future versions of Impact will also properly render the OC format.

July 2014
Cyrillic
Over 180 Cyrillic glyphs have been added to the extended version of Simple Sans Regular that already includes Greek & Hebrew letters. That means there are nearly 700 glyphs included in this font!

November 2013
Computer
This is a typeface requested by a client that is based on OCR-A. This mono-spaced font has an interesting history and is one of the early fonts designed in the digital era. It was designed to be legible for humans as well as be computers, so that computers can scan the text and "read" it for various purposes.

October 2013
Typewriter
Typewriter- a typeface based on Courier New, is a monospaced font with large seraphs. It has the appearance of what one would commonly expect to be typed out by a classic typewriter.

September 2013
Homag Group
Homag has licensed the rights to 3 fonts (Modern, Script, Hand) to be included with Homag, Weeke, & Holzma machinery that come with WoodWOP 2014, and subsequent releases. Homag expects to release WoodWOP 2014 sometime in April and has formatted the version to recognize & properly render our "OC" font format.

August 2013
SolidWorks 2014
It is my pleasure to finally announce that SolidWorks 2014 (still in Beta) has been setup to utilize our 'OC' font format. SolidWorks users will now have an optimal single line font to use, it uses curves & traces only once. This has been a long time in the works and is currently in Beta testing but will be fully released in the Fall. SolidWorks has licensed the rights to provide Simple Sans with the purchase of SolidWorks 2014.

July 2013
Script 2 completed & SolidWorks 2014 is licensed to include Simple Sans Regular and will correctly render all other 'OC' fonts offered at Onelinefonts
It is my pleasure to finally announce that SolidWorks 2014 (still in Beta) has been setup to utilize our 'OC' font format.

Script 2 is now our second Script typeface offering. It is a bit more decorative than our initial Script font offering, particularly the Capital letters. It is offered in both Full (400 glyph) & Basic (103 glyph) font sizes.

April 2013
Text Sketcher, for Catia has released & is licensed to include Simple Sans Regular (basic)
It was my pleasure to work with the developers of Text Sketcher as they prepared to release their software during the past few months. Many of their users have a need for single line fonts and I was able to work with them to ensure Text Sketcher is able to utilize our optimal 'OC' font format. Text Sketcher users are provided with Simple Sans with the purchase of Text Sketcher and may purchase additional fonts here.

March 2013
The Greek & Hebrew font is done
I have had several inquiries asking if I have a Greek or Hebrew font. I didn't then, but we do now. It has been added to our Full 400 glyph Simple Sans Regular set. Providing an additional 69 glyphs that include the Greek Alphabet along with monotonic accented Greek characters. It also includes 27 Hebrew glyphs to make up the basic Hebrew alphabet.

February 2013
Hand 2 completed
Comic Sans was requested by a few people so I finally got around to working on it. It is another 'hand font, much like the 'Hand' font already offered but with a more playful & relaxed feel, in comparison to our first 'Hand' font. The family has been completed & now available for purchase.

December 2012
Modern 2 completed
Futura has always been a typeface that I have admired for it's clean lines & unique design. Modern 2 is a family of fonts based on Futura that is now available for purchase.

October 2012
Rhinoceros (RhinoCAM, Rhino3D, etc.) & Visual Mill formats ready.
Rhino users that use the engraving capabilities will be familiar with the use single line font button. You now have more typeface choices. I have gone through the process of creating my typefaces in yet another format (OC) so that users of Rhino, it's related programs, & Visual Mill will have perfectly functioning single line fonts. Use ttf font files with 'OC' in the name.

Thank you Rhino for officially announcing the availability of these fonts & adding Onelinefonts.com as a resource.

OPF font format for Make the Cut completed.
It takes some time to prepare yet another format of my current group of 10 typeface designs, but it will be worth it for Make the Cut users. Now all of my typeface offerings are available as opf fonts. A single line font format specific to Make the Cut. I'd also like to thank, Andy, the owner/developer of Make the Cut for providing me with the info needed to develop this format.

Onelinefonts.com listed in the Ponoko blog.
The Ponoko team listed Onlinefonts as a resource in their blog. I'm glad to part of Ponoko's efforts to bring people & businesses together in order to combine all the elements needed to create unique products and bring them to the market.

September 2012
My sole focus was to get the 10 fonts done, tested, & formatted to make sure that most engraving, CNC, and scrapbooking programs will be provided with a functional single line font. As a result not much time was spent creating announcement pages, marketing, and other things that I should have been doing. I'll take a little breather to spread the word, then I'll be back to designing. Sometime in September I did manage to redesign the website to make it as user friendly as possible (I know having the Basic vs. Full font file sizes may cause confusion) in preparation for the completion of the formats released in October. Hopefully, people are finding the website easy to navigate & understand.

The initial establishment of Onelinefonts.com website was in February of 2012 with an offering of 3 typefaces, Roman Seraph, Roman Sans, & Script. Between then & September I continued to put in a lot of hours to design 7 additional typefaces, 3 of which (Simple Sans, Simple Sans Narrow, & Humanist) were developed specifically for Onelinefonts clients. The other 4 (Hand, Round, Modern, & Stencil) were designs made to ensure a broad range of styles are offered. More will be in the works, though it is difficult to decide what to work on next.

February 2012
One of my early partnerships was established with Camworks in February of 2012. I was made aware of the need for single line fonts, while working on Blomfer in November of 2011, my first conventional typeface design. This is thanks to my Brother-in-law, a very knowledgeable Camworks user. As I first developed a single line format it was the format that works specifically in Camworks (along with Solidworks). Camworks then tested the fonts and added Onelinefonts as a resource. This is the 'SP' format. I then learned, through the generous testing of other program users, that most other programs do not like the SP font format. I then developed what I consider the universal format that will work in most programs. The universal format has no additional letters in the name.
