Hi Jason,

Monion Pro is a commercial font by Adobe, designed back in 1990. It can be purchased from the Adobe website at $35 per font (there's eight fonts in the family).

A licensed Agfa Monotype version is also available for the same price at:

and includes an extended family of 64 fonts.

Good Vibes!

Hi Lobo,



Thanks for sharing. Could I get it downloaded free from any websites or anyone can spare me this font. :)



Thanks, Jason

Hi Jason,

As Weed points, EE does not support free distribution of commercial software, and unfortunately there are no free Minion Pro clones available.

An OpenType version of Minion Pro comes bundled with some Adobe programs. I'm not sure if it's Photoshop CS or InDesign CS, but one of them installed Minion Pro in my system; you may want to look into that. You can download the Tryout versions of Photoshop and InDesign from the adobe website at:

http://www.adobe.com/products/tryadobe/main.jsp#product=39

Keep in mind that these are heavy downloads, at 93Mb for InDesign and 248Mb for Photoshop.

Good Vibes!

Hi Lobo,


First of all, thanks for sharing. I had installed Photopshop CS but there aren't any minion pro fonts. I may try the other that you had suggested. By the way could you advise whether there are any PC fonts similar to minion pro.


Hear from you soon.



Thanks, Jason

Hi Jason,

I forgot to mention, the fonts that Photoshop or InDesign (or Illustrator) installed were stored in:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Fonts

I think I've some across one or two fonts similar to Minion Pro, not exact clones, tho. I'll look them up and will post in a day or so.

Good Vibes!
