Really beautiful font. Very clean and modern yet still quite friendly. you made a mistake by stating 'Melor Thin & Melor Regular' at the top though. In fact, you uploaded Chanor Sans twice; you uploaded Chanor Sans instead of Melor as well.

This is a nice-looking font, thanks for sharing!

This is beautiful work, very professional, with a lot of personality. I'm not enamored of the ir ligature, though. It looks somewhat out of place, like a character imported from some Indic language. Of course, ir is a ligature you normally only use in a script font, at least in English.

Can I use it for making the invitations for my exhibtion ? I dont know about the person who will print it, it is not me going to make the cards so I dont know.
xlphs Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2008
Sure! :)

Thank you so much :)
I dont know if your font will be used or not : for the first time it is not me that is making the poster and invitations for an exhibition.
I just made very clear that I dont want something like Arial ( but it may be to Avant-Garde or Optima if classics are needed ).

Of course I will send you an invitation if Chanor sans is used, you can ( if you want ) put your physical address into a note.

It will be used, that's ok, I am fixing what the guy had make ( a real mess from you pretty font, really ) and I will show you the result of this, or better send you a card once printed.

Now since I am a beginner with ID I am trying to find the trick to use uppercase numerals, just being in uppercase mode
doesnt seems to do the trick. I think it is ok to use uppercase for the date, lowercase for phone numbers ? And I am stupid to ask you anyway, that is a cultural thing, like the size of spacing.
Thank you again.
And well, will you consider making an italic someday ? ( I have used slanting a bit, shame on me :) )

Sorry for the late replay I have been away recently.
In what software were you trying to bring up the "uppercase numerals"(they are called lining figures)? I really can't help without knowing this.
I think it's fine whichever style of figures you use. It depends more on what kind of impression you want to leave on the readers. Since most people are used to seeing lining figures, those default (old style) figures in Chanor Sans are really a bit "old styled".

Italics? Probably not, I could barely squeeze any free time from my life right now.

Thank you for the answers :). Someone helped me with the use of open type on inDesign, so that's okay :-).
I have to learn all by myself, so sometimes I cannot find the things in the documentation. I can send you a invitation where your font is used, but it is only half my work : my photo, and I made something readable from the initial mess the guy had done. So I think I cannot post it on DA.

I think the false italics doesnt look bad.
Thank you again for sharing your work, and good luck with your busy life.
