Oh. My. Goodness.

 

I am sooo excited to find other font-obsessed girls out there! I’m currently studying typography through my professional writing degree, and this thread just makes me SMILE! Laughing

If you LOVE fonts and LOVE making up “personalities” to go with each font, you HAVE to check out this video:

HA!

Hey everyone! I’m hoping you all can suggest some complimentary fonts for one that my guy really likes (!). It’s called Renaissance and he likes how our names look in it but I don’t want to be all Renaissance all the time, you know? Any ideas?

Hi all!  I’m new to posting, but had a font question.  Does anyone know where I can download the font “Aphrodite Slim Stylistic” for free?  Or, are there any fonts that are similar to that one?  I really like it, but don’t want to have to pay!! (especially if I can’t figure out how to install it into Microsoft Word to use it!!)  Thanks in advance!!

On the subject of fonts and invitations — I need a font to compliment Feel Script. Any suggestions??

Was just thinking of this! I’ve been trying a few, and so far I’ve come up with a font like Adobe Caslon Pro or a non-serifed font like GeoSansLight/Dagny OT. google them to see them, and if you like them!

Also, try Fontsquirrel.com, they have a lot of non-serif fonts that would look good with feel script!

Hi

I have a very basic font question from a complete font newbie. My invitations are being printed by William Arthur and I just found out that the block is Architect-Roman and the script is Shelley Allegro. If I want to use these fonts for materials that I’ll be printing myself (e.g. programmes, out of town bag stuff, placecards, etc) how can I get these fonts to use in microsoft word on my home computer?

Also, if I download them on my own computer, but need to print them off at my parents house (thanks to the logistical nightmare of planning a wedding in Cleveland from London!) do I need to purchase them for both computers??

Thanks a lot

@rachelandviktor – I don’t know anything about those fonts – but if you purchase them, you should be able to convert your document to a PDF – that way your parents wouldn’t have to have the font on their computer

I have another question!  

I am using Edwardian Script for our names in our invitations and in our monogram.  However, I do like the scroll that comes with Edwardian.  Is there another font that I could use with Edwardian that does not have quite so swirly of an “&” sign.  

Thanks for any help!

caszos, I would play around with palace script or champignon, they should be available on dafont.com or might already be on your computer!

hungce, what about trying Geo Sans Light or Gotham light, or perhaps something like Nadia or Collaborate?

This top one is our names in all Edwardian Script

This second one is our names in Edwardian and the center “&” sign in Palace Font.

I am still trying to track down Champingon.
