Free Font Friday

more free fonts It’s been a little while since we had a Free Font Friday, but as everyone has their weekend escapes on the brain, we couldn’t help but immediately fall in love these wonderful place-based fonts!

Being based in San Francisco, all of these Northern California destinations are near and dear to our hearts. We’d visit every single one this weekend if we could! At least we can download each and every one of the fabulous fonts.

Still searching for your perfect type?? Have you given our FREE Monogram Maker a try? It helps you find the monogram that was meant just for you!

Put a Bow Tie on It!

Did you know that today is National Bow Tie Day?! Retro, quirky, but oh so dapper, the bow tie is a great outfit addition for those gentlemen with a sense of adventure in fashion.

Bow ties are mighty chic multi-takers that can be worn during the day with a button-ups, shorts and boat shoes for a “casual” outfit, that would certainly seem formal with a full fledged tie. For evening, don one with a blazer and trousers for a dressed up ensemble that’s date night worthy with a bit of flare!

Oh Summer, how marvelous you have been, yet how quickly you have passed! We hardly knew thee! Labor Day is next weekend (!!) so we have last Summer soirees and BBQ’s on our mind.

Although Fall does not officially start until September 23rd, we can’t help but lament Summer’s fleeting days now. Labor Day marks the unofficial wind down of the warm season and the end to outdoor parties and celebrations (ho hum!). Luckily we have an extra long weekend to enjoy al fresco dining with friends and family!
