I get asked a lot of questions about my printables and designs. I wish that I could respond to each and every question but there’s just not enough time in the day! I do answer questions quicker over on my Facebook page so visit me over there. But I wanted to address some of the things that I get asked over and over — the main thing is about fonts. (and printers – but I’ll save that for another day) It’s pretty clear that I’m obsessed with fonts. Most of the ones I use on a regular basis are free fonts. I do have several that I’ve paid for and use over and over as well. Today I’m focusing on the free stuff. Here are the top fonts that I use every day:
Now they might look different because I add color and do design-y (yes that’s a word) type things to them. I use Illustrator for design and Photoshop for images. I mainly taught myself with a few short online classes here and there.
As with all fonts, there is a risk in downloading. Sometimes fonts contain viruses. So I want you to be aware of that. For me, it’s never been a problem because I have a Mac (big puffy heart love my Mac) and most Mac’s don’t have issues with viruses.
Not sure how to download a font? There’s a great post here from the Graphics Fairy for a PC and for a Mac on Stories A to Z.
And what do you do with fonts? I design all the live long day using fonts. They are a big deal to me. But you can do whatever you like with them. Learn how to pair them here:
