Hello! Welcome to Friday! I’m excited to introduce a new series to my blog which will highlight my favorite fonts. I won’t be posting every Friday, however, when I post new fonts, it will be on a Friday. *wink*
Let me just start out by saying that I am a total font collecting nerd. I. Love. Fonts. I have a whole Pinterest board on my personal account that is chalk full of fonts. And my favorite kind to collect are the FREE ones. So unless otherwise noted, all the fonts that I share will be free to download.
To download a font, follow these steps: Click on the link below the photo and it will take you to the website you can download it from.
Look for the ‘Download’ button on the page (sometimes it’s near the top and other times you have to scroll down a little) and click it.
You will then have a new window pop up with the option to ‘Open with…’ or ‘Save File’. I click on ‘Save File’ and it then automatically starts downloading a zip file.
You can then go to the folder by finding your download folder. I use Firefox so mine is an arrow in the upper right hand corner. It opens the most recent downloads with a folder next to the file. If you mouse over it, it says ‘Open containing folder’.
Click on it once and it will take you to your downloads folder with the new file highlighted. Double click on it to open the folder.
You will see a few different files. The file type you want is ‘OpenType Font File’. Double click on it and it will open the font so you can see all the letters, number or other characters included with the font.
In the upper left hand corner of the screen, select the ‘Install’ button. The font should download automatically. Mine usually downloads in 5-10 seconds but if may differ depending on the size of the file and your own computer’s speed and storage space.
Open your word program and you will see the new font listed.
I hope you love these script fonts as much as I do!
