Fonce Sans is an all-original sans serif typeface which I spent several months designing. Since August of 2005, I have been releasing screenshots and demos of the typeface to get feedback, and I believe I am at the point where I can release the face to everybody.

The typeface includes old style (hanging) numbers, a ton of english and non-english lettering, some additional symbols, complete punctuation, and more stuff I doubt anyone will need (but hey, it's there).

What did I change since the last release? X-height is adjusted a bit more, some numbers have slight tweaks, the weight on the question mark and some other glyphs has been adjusted, and I've added more symbols. No more updates unless I do major changes.

Download the Zip, inside which is an OTF file. OTF (open typeface) is cross-platform, so PC users shouldn't have trouble.

Recent Update: I've added better inherent kerning metrics to the typeface, adjusted some letterforms like m, n, a, b, d, c, e, o, h, i, j, y, x, s, t, l, g, p, q, and more. These updates are tiny but important, and based upon some suggestions from Doyald Young, Leah Hofmitz, and Chesley Nassaney. If you know who Doyald Young is you get a cookie. Anyway, I would suggest downloading the new version if you want to stick with what I feel is the best final look for the typeface. Oh, and thanks for all of the downloads, comments, favs, and thanks for the DD!</sub>

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a monday night at 12:00a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death.
Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if u copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes u will have the best day of ur life tomorrow. u will either get kissed or asked out, if u break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. in 53 mins someone will say i love you or im sorry

I've been learning a bit about typography, and while looking for fonts, ran into this. Very nice! I hope I find a use for it soon.

According to the below comment the vowels are supposedly missing.
I noticed in your preview there are some pretty noticeable kerning issues in copy especially with the vowels where you list the benefits (i.e. between the 'b' an 'e' of benefit and 'o' and 'r' of normal)
When you setting the type did you use optical or metric kerning. Just want to get some info before purchasing the font...

It's a trial version, hence it is missing some of the characters. The full version is available on myfonts.com.

I just thought I ought to comment here and say your Fonce Sans Pro family of fonts are excellent, I bought them and use them in numerous deviations. Not quite sure why I like them but just to say that I do =D
