How to Choose an Eyecatching Font

Some fonts are absolutely gorgeous, but not every beautiful font will look good in what you need the font for. We have some top tips for choosing the best fonts for you to use so that your font style and color will match the content perfectly. 

       1.What Are You Using it For?

Are you going to make a poster or banner using the font? Or do you want to print it onto a bag or T-shirt? You need to have an idea and vision in mind before looking for a perfect font. 

       2. Color

A lot of the time, you can not change the color of these special fonts. If the color doesn’t go well with what you are printing it on, the likelihood is that you will not be happy with the final product. 

       3. Design 

Let’s say you want to print the font onto a T-shirt, if the T-shirt is plain, a soft font will not stand out enough against a blank background. The font style must be appropriate and go well with the style of the product you are making. 

       4. Business or Pleasure?

Some fonts are protected and can not be used for commercial printing. Make sure the font you choose isn’t copyright protected or doesn’t have rules and regulations surrounding the use of the font if it is for business use. 

PS. See Brightside & all our favorite font selections here.

    Loving these **typefaces** (not fonts)! Typefaces encompass all characters within a single family, for example all of “Helvetica” is a typeface. Font refers to a specific weight and size of that typeface, for example “Helvetica Regular 12 pt” would be a font. Just a quick thought for you, because the incorrect usage of the word “font” is getting a bit out of hand.
