Preparations for adding fonts

What are fonts?

Fonts are different styles and sizes of letters that make your text look calmer and easier to read. There are many different font styles in use. Each font gives a different vibe; a fancy font might make something feel formal, while a modern one would make it seem more relaxed. The font size can make the text more accessible or difficult to read. So, fonts are a big deal when making your writing feel just right.

What are some examples of commonly used fonts and styles?

  • Serif fonts - these are fonts that have these little lines or "feet" at the end of the letters. They're fancy and often used in printed books and newspapers. Examples of serif fonts include Times New Roman, Georgia and Courier.

  • Sans-serif fonts don't have those little lines at the end. They're more modern and are commonly used on websites and online magazines. Some examples of sans-serif fonts are Arial, Verdana and Helvetica.

  • script fonts that are supposed to look like handwriting. They're pretty and usually used for more formal stuff like invitations. Examples of script fonts are Brush Script, Calligraphy and Freestyle Script.

  • Display fonts are meant to be used in a specific size to make a statement or stand out. They're great for headings or other text to grab people's attention. Some examples of display fonts include Comic Sans, Impact, and Papyrus.

  • Comic fonts: These are playful cartoon-style fonts. Mainly containing fun and user-friendly elements like balloons, round strokes, and other cartoon symbols. Comic fonts are popular with designers creating websites with a storytelling theme. Some examples of great comic fonts include Banbang, Super Kids, and Street Pops.

How to download and install fonts?

In our discussion on how to add fonts to Word, let us see how to download fonts first.

How to download fonts?

Looking for a cool font to spice up your project?

Check out some reputable font sites like

dafont.com,

1001freefonts.com,

fontspace.com,

fontsquirrel.com.

These sites offer a variety of fonts for free (most of the time), and you can effortlessly search by category and type.

Before downloading a font, check out all of its characters. Some fonts only have upper- or lower-case letters or may be missing certain punctuation marks you need.

Another essential thing to check before using a font is its licence.

Some fonts are royalty-free. However, other fonts might be accessible for personal use, so you can't use them in your business's logo or any designs you plan to sell. You might have to pay to use a font for commercial purposes.

Click the download button on the font's page to download a font. The font will usually save to your computer in ZIP format, which includes the font itself and sometimes a Readme or Info file. You can choose the font format you want to download on some sites.

If you're using Windows, you can install True Type (.TTF or . TTC) fonts containing both on-screen and printing fonts in a single file. You can also use OpenType (.OTF) fonts, similar to True Type but with more advanced features like alternate characters and small caps.

Finally, you can install PostScript (.PFB and . PFM) fonts, which are older and less common but can still be used if you have both.PFB and . PFM files.
