|Text is a very important part of arts and crafts. Whether you are interested in crafts such as scrap booking, creating images for personal websites or designing projects for print; you can get lots of inspiration and fonts at Lettering Delights.|
When I first found this website, I was amazed at the variety of fonts in their product line. Who knew that a simple thing as the alphabet could lead to such creativity? So what will you find there?
You will find fonts for sale in various formats; download or CD, single fonts, bundled font packages, or you can mix and match your own combination of fonts. One feature that I really like was the "Try Me" online wizard. On the description page for each font there is a little input form. Just type in any words you choose, click the button and you will see your own words displayed in that font. It really is a great and fun way to "try before you buy".
If you are looking for fun and inspiration, Lettering Delights has that too. You will find two ongoing, monthly contests; Alphabet and Inspiration. Anyone can submit an alphabet design or project idea and the winners are posted on the website and in the site's newsletter. You can check out other's ideas in the site's Inspiration Station.
You will also find some fun freebies. There is the Free Font of the Month as a download and also a free image browser that they call Lettering Delights Supreme. This browser not only helps you view the fonts but you can also combine letters into titles and phrases for personal projects. As you create your titles, you can adjust the hue, saturation, brightness and contrast, sharpness and paint effects. When you sign up for the free newsletter, you get a free download containing seven fonts and one alphabet.
