Tech Tip Tuesday ~ Help Selecting a Font



Anything that makes creating cute and interesting documents easier and quicker is a win-win in my book!

With that in mind, here is a super-easy little website app thingy {for lack of a better description} you will want to bookmark right now!!!

It's called wordmark.it.

You can choose to sign up or not.  Signing up will allow you to save your selections.

When you get there, this is the main part of what you'll see...



All you do is type is a word or phrase that you want to test different fonts on...then click on the load fonts button.  That's it!  All of the fonts you have on your computer will load so you can scroll through them very quickly to find the perfect effect you're looking for.

This is what you'll see...then you just keep scrolling and scrolling depending on just how many fonts you actually have.



I LOVE that you can see how each font choice handles capitals and punctuation...since as we know, not every font does everything we want it to do.

You can also play around with the buttons across the top to isolate one certain fort, make it bigger, etc.

Really pretty neat and soooo much better than the old way of looking through 100s of fonts!

Give it a try and let me know what you think.


Enjoy :)
