WOBURN, Mass. -- May 1, 2013

Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: TYPE), a leading provider of
typefaces, technology and expertise for creative applications and consumer
devices, has enhanced its Fonts.com Web Fonts service to provide greater
flexibility and choice to creative professionals. The new Master subscription
plan brings together the company’s Web font solution with unlimited access to
more than 7,000 desktop fonts. Combined with Monotype’s Typecast™ application
for designing with Web fonts in the browser, the master subscription is an
industry first that provides a comprehensive solution for working with type
throughout the digital and print design processes, bringing unparalleled value
to customers.

“Our focus is to bring creative freedom to designers who know that great
designs begin with great typography,” said Chris Roberts, vice president and
general manager of Monotype’s e-commerce group. “Design success is best
achieved when typographic decisions are made early in the process. The
Fonts.com master subscription liberates designers to put type first, and to
experiment with, and benefit from, the widest possible typographic palette.
Customers are able to work fearlessly across digital and print.”

The Fonts.com Master subscription plan, which Monotype intends to expand with
new features on an ongoing basis, includes:

Unlimited desktop fonts: Customers receive an unlimited download allowance of
more than 7,000 traditional “desktop fonts,” while subscribed to the plan
including selections from various typeface foundries and the company’s
Monotype® Libraries, comprising the Monotype, Linotype®, ITC®, Bitstream® and
Ascender® collections. Included are some of the world’s most widely used
designs, such as the Helvetica®, Frutiger®, Trade Gothic® and Gill Sans®
typefaces, in addition to a continually expanding selection of new designs.

Desktop fonts are delivered automatically and installed on up to five
workstations using Monotype’s patent-pending SkyFonts™ technology. SkyFonts
runs in the background of Macintosh® or Windows® platforms to activate and
deactivate OpenType® fonts downloaded from Fonts.com. Desktop fonts may be
used for all purposes that Monotype’s standard desktop end-user license
agreement allows.

Web fonts: Subscribers receive access to more than 20,000 Web fonts, including
hundreds of hand-tuned selections that offer exceptional clarity, particularly
at small text sizes. Subscribers are entitled to up to 2.5 million Web font
page views per month and can add an unlimited number of Web fonts to an
unlimited number of websites. Customers may receive additional page view
allowances by upgrading to a higher level within the plan.

Typecast: Subscribers receive access to Monotype’s Typecast application, a
browser-based tool for designing Web pages with Web fonts. Designers are able
to combine, compare and style Web fonts quickly without performing screen
captures in third-party applications or through hand coding. Users can
visually style text directly within the browser, which offers more scope for
creative experimentation, better typographic control and a simplified
workflow. The Typecast application enables unlimited experimentation with
fonts from the Typekit®, Fontdeck®, Webtype™ and Google Fonts services, in
addition to Fonts.com Web Fonts.

Customers may sign up for the Fonts.com Master subscription plan at
www.fonts.com/web-fonts/master-plan. A live webcast that demonstrates how
SkyFonts can be used with the new Fonts.com Web Fonts subscriptions will take
place May 3, 2013, at 11:00 a.m. eastern time. Register for the webcast at

Today, Monotype also announced that it has teamed up with Google to offer
versions of Google Web fonts designed for print. Users can now work with free,
desktop versions of Google Web fonts, downloaded through SkyFonts technology
to give users more freedom, flexibility and control in how they use their
fonts. Further details are available at fonts.com/web-fonts/google.
