=46ontlab Ltd. Announces the Release of SigMaker 2

=46irst Mac version of Signature-Into-Font Tool

Port Angeles, WA, USA – May 23, 2005 – Fontlab Ltd., the leading developer
of digital typography tools, announced the release today of Sigmaker 2.
This second version of this utility tool for placing signatures into fonts
now runs natively on Mac OS X. SigMaker 2 allows users to add their
signature (or any other graphic) to a TrueType font in seven quick and easy

New and notable in this version of SigMaker is the ability to add
signatures and graphics to two-byte TrueType fonts. This extends the
program’s market to the countries of Asia where this is very difficult for
consumers to do.

SigMaker 2 lets the consumer place any black and white graphic image (TIF,
PICT or EPS format) into a font and select a keystroke for it. The program
autotraces the image; lets the user adjust the size and spacing; converts
it into a vector-format TrueType glyph; lets the user assign it to a
character; and creates a new TrueType font with the image included. The
user then has only to type the appropriate character to reproduce the image
in text.

As you might expect from the product name this tool is usually used to
place signatures into fonts, so that users can sign documents with a single
keystroke. However it is useful wherever custom characters are frequently
needed in text – particularly in academic applications requiring special
kinds of notation or symbols.

SigMaker 2 for Mac OS X retails for US$29.95. A Windows version is under
development. All products from Fontlab Ltd. carry a 60-day satisfaction
