Stock Photos of Typography

Stock photography with a typography twist from Deposit Photography

Stock photographyDURING OUR FONTS FEST, we get tons of inquiries from developers asking if they can be included. Usually, all submissions have to be in by the end of August -- and the content has to relate directly to fonts, type, typography and the general theme for the months. We get a lot of inquiries from font developers wanting to show their wares, basically as advertising for their fonts, but without adding any real value in terms of content. Without sponsoring or contributing content, we generally don't just run raw promotional material.

For a stock photography house, I was pleasantly surprised at how many images they have on "typography." That certainly relates, so I asked if she would let DTG readers download some samples. Again the answer was yes. doesn't just have photos. They've got all kinds of graphics and graphic compositions. We quickly and easily pulled up a search for typography and found a playground of cool images -- both graphic and photographic. "Halloween" pulled up a similar collection of good shots.

The following are just a few of our favorites. You can see that some of the collections offer good theme potential, with various configurations all sharing the same subject matter, look and feel.
