    letseyx:

Alien League: Very, very thin font. Interesting for a line, not so great for only a word or a block of text. Looks a bit like a bar code.Examples: xCorabael: Great for a word here and there, definitely not for a lot text. Great y’s and f’s, but it doesn’t have punctuation marks.Examples: x  x  x
Courier New:Loos great, but not always easy to use as it gets pixellated very fast and I almost always need a double layer for it to be readable. Not very good for small text, but it can be a fun font.Examples: x  x  x  x
Elephant: Not very special but still a little different than other fonts. Not always very readable. Broadway is also a good alternative for this.Examples: x  x
Fangtasia:Very swirly with the t’s, fun to use for a couple of words.Examples: x  x
Folks (Bold):Can be used for a lot of text, but not very interesting to play with size/italics/upper-and lowercase etc in one graphic because it starts to look messy.Examples: x  x
Frail:Bit of a weird font. Not always useable, but it can look cool.Examples: x  x
Futura:Rounder than Futura LT Condensed, but very readable and good for lots of text.Examples: x  x  x  x  x  x  x  x 
Futura LT Condensed:FAVORITE. I use it so much :D Especially on gifs. The letters are thin, so you can put a lot of words in one line, it’s vey readable and playing with size, uppercase/lowercase, italics, space between your letters, etc. makes it look very different.Examples: x  x  x  x  x  x  x  x  x  x
Georgia / Times New Roman (probably on your computer already):Oldies but goodies. I personally don’t really see much difference between them, to be honest :D But you can use them for a block of text, you can use them in all-capslock, and they’re really great when you want to change up the size of your words. Playing with the space between the letters can give a different look as well.Examples: x  x  x  x  x  x  x  x  x
Katy Berry:Cute swirly font. Hearts instead of dots, so not something to put on everything.Examples: x x
PTF Nordic Rnd:A bit on the boring side, but very readable and useable.Examples: x  x
Pea Lyndal:Very cool y’s, t’s and j’s. Not always very readable and takes some fitting when you have more than a couple words, but can look very cool. Examples: x x
Pea Mee-Mee:Fun and swirly, good for a couple words but definitely not for a block of text.Examples: x 
Pump Demi Bold:Fun and readable. I really like this one in italic.Examples: x  x  x
Rockwell:Similar to Courier New, but easier to use as it’s thicker..Examples: x
