August 7, 2020: Font Pairs: What Are They & Why Should You Care?

by | Aug 7, 2020 | Newsletters | 0 comments

It’s Friday and that means….FREEBIES!!

One of the really fun aspects of doing design work is staying on top of design trends, and over the last couple of years, ‘font pairing’ has been a very popular trend, primarily in logos and headers, but also for blog post titles and content.

In case you are not familiar with the term – font pairs are two different font styles that are used together to create a more stylish or contemporary look than a single font used alone would. 

Unfortunately, very few fonts that you can purchase have rights that will allow you to pass the font on to your PLR buyer, and some even have limits as to how many products you can sell using the font.

As a PLR creator, this can often be a challenge finding stylish, attractive fonts that are free for commercial use today…and tomorrow!

I have had this happen on more than one occasion: I create a design using a lovely new ‘free’ font, only to have it be a PAID font 2 months later when the customer wants to edit the file. This happens, unless you want to limit your designs to the handful of boring fonts that everyone has access to on their OS. 

Blech…

So, instead of doing the bland & boring, every few weeks, I go through all of the usual places for free fonts, and I update our list of readily available fonts that can be easily substituted in our planners – whether by necessity or choice!

And if you have never added new fonts to your system – here’s how ya do it:

Mac IOS

iPad

Windows 10

I promise it is very, very easy, and once you learn how, you will become a font-a-holic like the rest of us!

Here’s this month’s font update
