Tips and Tricks: Handy Font Preview

May 20, 2014 is a font preview site. You type a word into the black box at the top of the page – where you see “wordmark” when the page first loads – and press the “load fonts” button. The word is shown in every font on your computer, allowing you to preview all your fonts. It’s a very handy tool to have open in your browser when you’re designing cards.

Typetester is a site that allows you to compare one font to another, but the choice is limited to a preset list. Nevertheless, there are some basic fonts here and the tool works well for what it is.

FontBROWSER is another font preview site. You choose from a list of all the fonts on your computer and a predetermined sample text is generated. You need Flash for this one.

Add these useful tools to your designer’s kit and you’ll have an easier time matching a font to your intended design.
