Ok..we're beginning to see some commonality here. It's not that we all want to use the same fonts. God forbid, every sign would look the same.
Hey Jill..I want to check out your fonts! No, what I mean is..I may have seen them here or there..but not familiar with your choices posted here.
I expect that these are fonts obtained from legitimate font foundries and that you paid a good buck for them.
Of the ones I posted at the start here, they either came within Corel, Illustrator or windows, the rest were free fonts from the net.
Cheers!

WHich top ten fonts?

THe top ten fonts I like to use? Or the top ten fonts the customers choose?

I have over 6000 fonts but offer a smaller variety of about 50 for customers to choose from. From there if they don't like any listed, I will draft up samples of what they want with various font choices based on their input.

Here are the top ten that the customers seem to pick the most often.

2 years ago Dom Casual and Brush Script would have been on here but I got tired of seeing them so I removed them from the font choices. now if a customer wants either of those they must request it specifically.
