Localization Anyone?
With the latest update of SimplyMpress 1.0.3 for Mac we have added tool-tip text for all buttons and controls in the app. As a first step t...owards localizing our app for other languages, we have created a free social crowd-sourcing translation project for SimplyMpress tool-tips: If you or anyone you know has the knowledge and skills to provide valid localized versions of our English tool-tip text we will add these translations to future updates. Any language localizations are welcome.

Familiar Fonts:
Aside from the massive programming effort to have SimplyMpress work on iOS, Mac, (Android and Windows coming soon), we also created 25 OTF fonts from the wood type used in LetterMpress and from our letterpress studio, The Living Letter Press.

SimplyMpress lets you choose your own fonts, but we wanted a collection of "letterpress" fonts available as well. There are 5 fonts that are included with the free version of SimplyMpress for iOS, and your can purchase ...23 additional fotns for $1.99 USD. All the fonts are included in the Mac version. We also included a set of three image fonts, based on vintage advertising, signs and packaging.

These fonts are only accessible within SimplyMpress, but we plan to make each OFT font available separately in the near future.

BTW, LetterMpress users, we have not forgotten you!

SimplyMpress was a big undertaking for our small team. However, in the mean time we have been collecting more wood type for LetterMpress.

We are eager to get going on updates as soon as the dust settles from the SimplyMpress release. (No, we don't have a time estimate on a release...sorry).


Here are some of the typefaces we are considering. We have several others awaiting cleaning and scanning too...

Thanks for all your support over the past two years!
