Font Friday: Lavanderia


You may remember that I previously featured Duke by James T. Edmondson a while back... well he's back with more awesomeness! Lavanderia is based on lettering found on laundromat windows in San Francisco's Mission District, it features numerous opentype features and three weights. And hello! it comes complete with punctuation, numerals, upper and lowercase... which is not always the case with certain "free" fonts. Lavanderia is available from the always amazing Lost Type Co-op so that means, you guessed it... FREE!

  6. Love the font! Great find!! I downloaded it and does anyone else have the problem with the lower case a and e with the swash on it? How can I get it to be a normal cursive a or e? Is it because it's a free font?

  7. @ Anonymous- It's an Opentype font so you may need to look at your Opentype panel... assuming you are working in Illustrator? I had no problems with it.

  8. Is anyone else having problems using all three styles of this font in InDesign? I have verified that all three are installed on my system, but only the Delicate weight is available in InDesign. The other two don't even show up in the font list.

    1. I don't use InDesign so I can't answer that question for you. Maybe you should contact the Lost Type Co-op...

  11. cant get this for free, it keeps asking me to pay for the font. Why are these advertised as free if they have to be paid for

    1. You can "name your price" so if you don;t want to pay for it then enter 0... however, I believe the license is restricted in that case.
