5 Minute Tutorial – Print Your Fonts into a Font Catalog
I am mildly obsessed with fonts. I use them often for creating Pinterest content for the blog but a good font is also pretty awesome for Christmas Cards, Baby Announcements and Birthday Invitations.
I am often grabbing free fonts I find on the web or I purchase a few I can’t live without. The newest place I have found fonts that I cannot live without are from Font Bundles. They have some of the prettiest and most amazing fonts. They are great inspiration for hand lettering or chalk lettering.
I also love Creative Market. Creative market is great for fonts you can use personally or commercially. They also have amazing resources including graphics, templates, photos and more. It’s an online marketplace where creators sell to creators.
Now that you have some amazing fonts on your computer, you might be wondering how do I print a font from my computer? First it’s good to know the amazing fonts you have, then you can start adding fonts to things like documents, graphics and more.
How do I create a list of fonts?
Whether your are purchasing fonts, downloading free ones or just want to create a quick catalog of all the fonts you have on your computer, I found this app and it is so incredibly easy to create a list of fonts. As a font hoarder, this font catalog tutorial took me less than 5 minutes and I printed out a catalog of 20 pages of cute fonts for me to reference.
On this page, scroll to the bottom. I downloaded (clicked) PrintMyFontsforWindows (as seen above). This is because I have a Windows computer. If you have a Mac or another program, you can see what program is recommended for your computer. The program downloaded to my download folder. I had to open that folder and extract the program. You can then open the application PrintMyFonts.
One thing I liked about this program was you could decide what you print. Look for the box “Text written in the Font” I wrote the above font using my blog name. However, I printed the names of my fonts in the font style. But you could write your name, you could do something like the “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.” (that phrase gives you ever letter of the alphabet) or you could print each letter form A to Z in the font style. Use the drop down arrow and decide how you want your catalog to look.
If you don’t want it to print, you can also save it as a PDF. I saved a back up one to my documents on my computer. You can decide a JPG, RTF, BMP etc. Under Print, I can print to my computer or save it to a PDF.
Is this so easy?! For me personally, it will help me with my Pinterest creations, but I think for many of you it will be good for those who create documents, use vinyl machines, craft and so much more!
PLEASE SHARE YOUR FONT CATALOG ON PINTEREST – I love to see pretty organized prints!
