Greetings, everyone! ♥
Today I’d love to share a quick video tutorial on how to download and install beautiful fonts in seconds!
We live in a visual world. Many followers of my blog are writers, authors, and/or bloggers, AND readers. We share and market our work, and the work of others, through visuals. What grabs our attention? For me it’s pictures, but a big source of inspiration comes from the typography.
We can create beautiful marketing graphics using unique fonts. Our words convey a message and, hopefully, a story; but first we must gain a reader’s attention. Any font will convey a message, but the right font will tell a story. Your story. ♥
Typography is also a huge part of branding. It’s huge and often gets overlooked, but it’s an essential piece of what we do. It’s important to choose a style that’s right for you and your work. We have this incredible opportunity to leave a lasting impression via visuals. Let’s make it an awesome one … and have fun doing it!
The possibilities are endless. You can (re)create your favourite quotes and share on your blog and social media sites. You can use snippets from your book or WIP and share with your readers AND garner new fans. How about sharing those amazing reviews you’ve received for your work! Celebrate it in style. You’ve earned it!
If you’re working with a lot of text, you can have a base font and add another to highlight specific words. I do this with my poetry and printables. The image above is one of my printables listed on Printable Art and Verse.
If you’re using fonts and graphics, it’s important to understand the Personal and Commercial Licences. I refer to this in the video tutorial. Because I sell my work, I always ensure I have the Commercial Licence for every font and graphic that I use. This doesn’t necessarily mean accessing and using these resources is costly. Nope. Not at all. The font used in the video tutorial is FREE and the Commercial Licence is included. Double score, my friends! ♥
There are so many awesome sites to access. I wanted to share my go-to sites for beautiful fonts and graphics. (Free and Paid):
FontBundles.net are well known for saving customers bundles of cash, but they have gone one step further with their FREE fonts section, which includes a brand new FREE font every week. Yup, FREE! ♥
Design Bundles offer amazing graphics at fantastic prices. They generously offer FREE fonts every week via Font Bundles. All of their FREE fonts are available to download instantly, as soon as you sign up for an account. It’s quick, easy, and FREE!
This one is another gem! Yup, it’s FREE. ♥
Deal Jumbo is one of my favourite stops for fonts and graphics. They offer fantastic discounted design bundles with extended license!
This beautiful font is FREE! Crazy, right?! ♥
I love Creative Market! The talent and creativity is inspiring. They offer FREE products, but their paid products are worth every penny. I often purchase a Bundle and feel like a kid on Christmas. So many AMAZING products at an affordable price!
I’m in love with the Festive Font, and scored big time when I snagged it with this bundle.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope this information proves helpful.
Happy creating, my friends! ♥
