Goodbye Times New Roman

I don't know about you, but I am tired of Times New Roman and Arial. I want some excitement please! And I found it! Head on over to Da Font and get ready to spice up your life. ***rub hands together with glee***

This one here is called Mom's Typewriter and I just installed it on my laptop. How? First, save the zip file onto your desktop. Then, open the zip file and place the font file (.ttf) into C:\Windows\Fonts. The font should appear in the font drop down menu in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and most importantly, for me, Photoshop.

The fonts are nicely categorized, and there are some interesting choices. Some are quite nice, and others are rather hideous. One thing in common is they are all free!

Other free font sites include: WebpagePublicity, SimplyTheBestFonts, and AbtractFonts.

Or if you want to splurge for a fancier font, visit here. These are more whimsical and professional looking. The only problem is that they don't come cheap. Some people seem to think that it is worth every penny, though.

It's going to be a late night for me.
