    is the drop shadow a whole letter set ?
    for example, is there a web font for the drop shadow letters?
    or can you only make it have a drop shadow in pshop or illustrator.



    thanks

    @Crucial County yes, the punctuation glyph are included. @James Stables the shadow styles can be applied in separated layer in PS or AI, but in the next few days I will updated the shaded styles, merging the shadow and regular styles. Thanks.

    Thanks! Can you upload the glyphs and numbers as well? I would really like to see them before purchase.

    Great job my friend!

    It's beautiful. Old style numerals would make it perfect and an instant purchase for me.
