MyFonts was established in January 1999 as a division of Bitstream Inc to create a new way of finding, trying and buying fonts. MyFonts created the MyFonts.com® website as a showcase of the world’s fonts available from one easy-to-use Web site. MyFonts.com hosts the largest collection of fonts ever assembled for on-line delivery, and offers easy ways to find and purchase fonts on-line.
WhatTheFont™, one of MyFonts’s most popular features, lets you upload scanned images of fonts to the Web site, where WhatTheFont displays the closest match to your font sample.
alt.TYPE is a Bitstream distributor and works with myfonts via its affiliates program.
