What Da Font?

They are one of the best creations in computer history! If you love creating word art and graphic designs like me, fonts are indispensable in your artist toolbox. I get all my free and fun fonts from DaFont.com. On top of being free, installing a new font is easy-peasy too. All you have to do is download the font file from the website, unzip the individual files, and install into your computer. For detailed instructions, go to Dafont for help. The fonts are wonderfully designed and there are hundreds to choose from. If you have amazing design abilities, you should think about creating your own font.

I use fonts heavily to create unique cards for friends and family. But while fonts are amazing, it is very important to have a good program to design your word art. I personally don’t use anything fancy – just plain ole Microsoft Powerpoint. This gives you the ability to manipulate the placement of letters and add other graphics. On top of cardmaking, I also dabble in embroidery because I get so inspired by all the beautiful fonts.
