Press release from the issuing company

Now Available via PrintUI’s Web-to Print SaaS based service; First time premiere Japanese fonts have been made available outside of Japan
 
Santa Cruz, Calif. – PrintUI, a leading web-to print SaaS-based service, and Morisawa, Inc., the premiere digital Japanese typography company, today announced the availability of the Morisawa professional fonts library. The exclusive partnership makes available 1,088 fonts from Morisawa’s library of 37 kanji typefaces, six kana typefaces and 11 specialty and roman typefaces. This is the first time Morisawa’s Japanese fonts have been made available via a web-hosted service outside of Japan.
 
“Morisawa is the dominant player in Japanese publishing and we are extremely proud to announce this partnership,” said Mark Hilton, founder and CEO of PrintUI.  “Morisawa has lead the digital Japanese typography industry since 1989 with the launch of Kanji Postscript in partnership with Adobe Systems. Morisawa continues to play a leading role in Japan and the design market today.”
 
Graphic and branding professionals worldwide who have licensed Morisawa fonts, including the popular Morisawa Passport subscription service, can now simply upload InDesign templates incorporating Morisawa fonts. Customers then designate Morisawa fonts as base fonts for end-users to select from within the PrintUI web-to-print client interface. This interface provides marketing and creative teams a fully integrated solution for self-service marketing fulfillment including presentations, catalogs, brochures, business cards, datasheets, ads and more.
 
"I am truly grateful that our products are being made available as part of the PrintUI service,” said Mr. Akihiko Morisawa, president & CEO, Morisawa Inc. “As a font company Morisawa has achieved, through design and quality, the highest regard amongst professionals in Japan. I am eager to see our advanced technology experienced through PrintUI. Morisawa’s motto is ‘contributing to society through typography’, which we are now pursuing by offering superior quality fonts not only in Japan but throughout the world.”
