Discover new creative fonts to print on ribbon[/caption] Call me crazy. I can spend hours looking at fun new fonts to download and have as options for designing ribbon.
Why stick with only the standard fonts that came with your computer? There are so many style options out there to try. PLUS your ribbon designs become even more unique and therefore more profitable. Check out these sites for design inspiration.
25 sites that offer loads of options to make your printing experience even more enriching.
While you can spend fun-filled hours reviewing all the fonts available, make sure to take into consideration the following:
REQUIREMENTS: While many fonts are free to download, make sure to review the terms. Each may be different. There may also be nuances based on your use of the font (personal versus business). This shouldn't intimidate you though ... just make sure you comply with their requirements.
DONATIONS: Many of the free sites suggest that you make a donation to keep them up and running. Personally, if I find a really cool font for free, I have absolutely no problem sending off some money to ensure they'll be around so I can find great new fonts in the future.
VIRUSES!: I am in no way suggesting that any of these sites are not fully professional and protected - just make sure to protect yourself. The sites are heavily viewed with multiple contributors. I did attempt to download one font and Norton detected a virus of high concern. No worries, it was caught and quarantined. Again, just make sure your computer is protected.
So ... if you're a font junkie ... fill us in on which fonts are your favorites in the comment section and please share this information if you've found it useful.
