About Shift® Conceived in 1993 by Joshua Distler as a means of marketing fonts created for use in his own projects. Shift went online in 1995. For more than 10 years Shift has been offering a small library of award winning fonts with predominantly technological themes, rendered in clean, thoughtful, and original drawings. In September of 1998 the Shift web site was relaunched with a new look, new fonts, new packaging, and the option to purchase and download fonts online. (shiftype.com) Shift continues to innovate with the release of its LiveSurface Layered Image Library (livesurface.com)
Order Security Shift works with Verisign and Card Service International through Netscape and Verisign's SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protocol security software, to encrypt your credit card information so that it cannot be read as your order travels over the Internet. To verify that you are on a secure page, look for the closed lock on your browser. To protect our customers, and ourselves, we store ONLY the last 4 digits of any credit card numbers entered online. This way, your full credit card number is used ONLY when your purchase is authorized. We keep the last 4 digits so that we can trace your sale, should you have a problem.
