I have downloaded some fonts from your site. How do I use them?
Go to my PC help section where you will find all the information you need to un-compress and install the fonts onto your PC. Your new fonts will then be available for use within any programs that use fonts.
I love the fonts on your site but I notice they are for the PC. I run a MAC, so how can I use the fonts from your website?
Go to my MAC help section where you will find all the info. you need to convert the fonts so that they can be used on your MAC.
Is there anyway I can get all the fonts from your site either as a large zip file or via ftp?
Sorry, but I don't offer a zip file of all the fonts at Acid Fonts. My site uses a lot of bandwidth / month. Offering such a large zip file would compound the problem. This is also the reason I don't offer anonymous ftp.
I have installed a font from your site, when I use it in Word I find some characters are missing and have been replaced with small black boxes instead of letters?
Not all font designers include full character sets for their fonts. This could mean you only get the font in uppercase. When you try to use the font in lowercase you get the black box where the character you specify should have been.
I have a picture from a magazine / album cover that has a logo on it, can you tell me the font they used for it?

There is a film out at the moment called ####, can you make the font they used for the film logo?
I wish I could make my own fonts, I wouldn't know where to start. I find all the fonts for my site on the Internet. There are a lot of talented font designers out there making great fonts.
Why can't I use the fonts from your site when I send emails and within chat programs?
The normal procedure for email / chat programs is to use a set of default fonts. These are normally the fonts that ship with Windows / Mac. This is so that everyone who reads your emails / chat will see it in the same font i.e. Arial. It's just not possible for everyone to have every font made installed on there PC / MAC.
