The Dutch Type Library (DTL) is a producer and publisher of high quality typefaces and developer of software for the professional font production. Established in the spring of 1990, DTL was the first of its kind in the Netherlands and has become the largest producer of new fonts in the Low Countries. The Dutch Type Library makes digital typefaces of the highest design- and technical quality, supporting all current digital formats, including PostScript Type1, TrueType and OpenType for all platforms.
The Dutch Type Library has developed DTL FontMaster, a set of utilities for professional font production. Initially programmed for internal use at the DTL studio, the program evolved over the years and has become an ultimate powerful tool. DTL FontMaster is used by type manufacturers worldwide.
Fonts of the Dutch Type Library are used for corporate identities all over the world, by large institutions and multinationals such as the European Union,
New York Stock Exchange, Amnesty International USA, Emerson, AstraZeneca, Heerema Group and Koninklijke BAM Groep. DTL fonts are used by the Oxford University Press, the Gutenberg Gesellschaft and the Koninklijke Bibliotheek Brussel. Further by museums like Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen Rotterdam, Haags Gemeentemuseum, Centraal Museum Utrecht, Amsterdams Historisch Museum, Dordrechts Museum, Nederlands Openluchtmuseum, Museum Plantin-Moretus and Koninklijk Museum voor Midden-Afrika, Tervuren. The German broadcaster ZDF/Phoenix and Radio Nederland Wereldomroep use DTL fonts as corporate identity typeface, so do banks like the Austrian 3 Banken Gruppe and F. van Lanschot Bankiers. DTL supplied corporate typefaces to the Academisch Ziekenhuis Groningen, the Danish Railways DSB and to Agis Groep Zorgverzekeraars. The largest Finnish newspaper, Helsingin Saanomat, uses a DTL typeface. Many graphic designers and publishers work with DTL fonts.
