Samantha Grimsley-Franklin

Samantha Grimsley-Franklin is the first voice you hear when you call Font Bureau. “That would be me!”

So, how did you find out about Font Bureau?
I heard about Font Bureau through a really good friend of mine, Sam Collins. He was also a good friend of Sam Berlow, the general manager. It wasn’t until a few years later, in 1998 that I called Sam and was then hired full time.

What do you do at Font Bureau?
I mainly do sales and administration. I speak with a lot of our clients.

I’ve heard you say over the years, “I love my job”. Can you explain that more?
There are million reasons why - but mostly it’s the atmosphere, the people. You know I never actually thought people bought fonts until I got to Font Bureau.

What are your interests or hobbies?
I like to cook. I can cook just about anything, or at least try to cook just about anything. I also love to read.

When you are not at Font Bureau, what do you do?
Now when would that be? I have my family - my husband and three children.

What’s a fun fact you’d like to share about yourself?
In another life, I’d be a crime detective. I like to figure things out.

You must like all the detective shows on TV now.
Oh, yeah. I love them. If I could watch them all at once I would.

Is there anything else that you’d like to share?
I’m a news junkie.
