We design libre / open source fonts. Learn more and contribute to the adventure of Velvetyne by reading our “about” page.


Since its creation in early 2010, Velvetyne Type Foundry remains an independent organisation using the energy of its members as a fuel. Thanks to this fuel, we regularly publish new fonts, we organize [free workshops](/workshops/) (at least once a year) and we keep updating our website and our existing fonts, for 9 years now. We don’t rely on any sales nor any subventions from any state or private organization to continue our activities. As such, we are the only masters of our choices.

If you like our fonts and our activities, and if you think that what we do is important, please consider donating to our non-profit organization. If you are curious about all our accomplishments since our creation, please take a look at this list we have put together. Your donations will allow us to continue distributing new quality, open-source fonts and improving our existing catalogue by redrawing our old fonts, adding characters to their glyph sets or creating new weights.

You particularly loved one of our fonts or the work of one particular designer in our catalog? Then you may also consider making a personal donation to any of our authors. In this case, contact them directly by finding their email address on their dedicated profile page.

As we are a non-profit organisation, you can ask for a tax exemption on your donation, depending the laws of the country where you’re in.
