The Wonderful World of Fonts!

Some times a presentation or a letter need something to make them Pop! There are many ways to do it from bright colors to funny shapes, but the easiest way has to be with fonts.

There are silly fonts,bnıǝʇ ın ʇɥǝ bɐɔʞ, old fashioned fonts,𝕳𝖊𝖆𝖗 𝖄𝖊, 𝕳𝖊𝖆𝖗 𝖄𝕰,  and the just plain bizarre, 🍳⛎🎐🎗🌴 🎐🎵 🌴♓🎗 🅱🅰🌜🎋.  

When it comes to creative fonts, there is no end. A lot of users have been finding customized fonts online from various genre's such as Dr. Seuss and Dr. Who. It is important to not only get the font that you need, but to do it safely. When downloading fonts from the internet there is always the risk, however slight, that there may be a virus attached to the file. 

One easy way to ensure that doesn't happen is to copy your font from an online font generator, such as fontmeme. It is a fairly simple process. All one would need to do is visit the website, select the desired font, type your message, and copy and paste into your own document. 

If you do choose to download a font package, I highly recommend that you scan if for viruses before opening the file. The easiest way is to follow these steps.

  1. Download the font into your downloads folder (or folder of your choice)
  2. Right click on the file and select Scan with (your antivirus)Image result for right click scan with
  3. Once the scan is complete you can open the file or delete it, as needed.

 

The next time you find yourself in need of a new font, just follow these steps, and enjoy!
