Not only is Blue Goblet Serif a excellent choice, it also is a member of a wide family of different fonts. You can use it side by side with the original Blue Goblet, and there are a wide range of ornaments available, totaling over 350 illustrations! These illustrations include frames, florals and other text ornaments that can be inserted into your text and resized at will. This makes the Blue Goblet series a great pick when you want a type system that works very well together for a very unique and consistent look. The Blue Goblet series continues to grow and be expanded, making it a valuable investment.



Blue Goblet Serif also includes auto replacing ligatures that make it appear that the script was drawn by the artists own hand, just for you! Blue Goblet Serif also includes a wide variety of alternates that can be accessed in any OpenType enabled application. Blue Goblet includes over 150 OpenType glyphs, and is loaded with features including an even more unique alternate alphabet. Included are swash alternates, style sets, old style figures and small caps. Please see the informative PDF brochure to see these features in action. OpenType enabled applications such as the Adobe suite or Quark can take full advantage of the automatic replacing ligatures and alternates. This family also includes the glyphs to support a wide range of languages.



Blue Goblet Serif is great choice for display and short blocks of display text, children’s books, packaging, or other unique applications. Fill in the counter spaces with color for a unique look, or alternate the different weights. Use Blue Goblet whenever you want to inject a sense of fun and whimsy to your designs.
