                                    Sometimes, you just want that extra touch of oomph. Or maybe a little sideways-leaning sass. Maybe you just want to stand out in the middle of your text.

                                    Whatever the reason, we've got you covered with:

                                    • Bold & Brash
                                    • Italics

                                    all packaged in a pretty little bottom toolbar (we like to call him Richard — don't ask).
