I've already mentioned in my 50 free blog resources post (catch up here) that one of my favourite creative hubs is the Creative Market. I've handpicked these 15 beautiful handwritten fonts to give you a flavour of what's out there. Of course the creators don't make these stunning pieces of graphics for free - they are humans who also need to live & eat. The fonts are very affordable nonetheless. Most of these fonts are less than $10 (ca £7; some are even less than that). A worthy investment if you're looking to boost your blogs visual design without investing into a whole new revamp!
I know, I know, I hear ya - but what do I do when I buy a font like this? How do I use it? I don't have Photoshop! I don't know how to use Photoshop! Well, it's simple. Just follow these few steps:
🖥 First of all get a photo editor. I recommend either signing up for Adobe Creative Cloud (click here to explore) which is what I'm using at the moment. You're essentially paying a monthly subscription to be able to use Photoshop CC 2015 & also Photoshop Lightroom. Alternatively, you can get PhotoFiltre Studio for FREE (download here). This is the one I'd been using since I started my blog until very recently. It works just fine for all your basic editing!
🖥 Sign up to the Creative Market (sign up here for FREE). They will often send you freebies in their newsletter so don't forget to tick yes to receiving extras - it's an easy way to boost your font library!
🖥 Get lost in millions of gorgeous fonts. Pick one. Check the licensing (you might need to get a slightly more expensive license if you want to use the fonts for printables and other commercial use) and buy your dream font.
🖥 Open the downloaded folder & double click the file ending with .ttf - this will pop up with a question whether you want to install the font. Yeeer please.
🖥 And tadaaaah! Your font's been installed. Now you can adorn your photos & visuals with a stunning handwritten font! And don't forget to share them on Pinterest - the haven of all things pretty looking!
Blog Tip: Don't use more than 2-3 fancy fonts on your blog as this can become a little messy and the whole fancy shebang could work against you rather than for you!
Don't forget to share this post with your blog friends if you found it useful! And psssst - there might be a tip on where to find some FREE fancy fonts in the upcoming November newsletter (sign up here!) - just saying.
