Two Free Font Utilities You Should Check Out

Written by Mark: MeAndMyDrum | Fave MAMD | Subscribe to MAMD

Even if you’re not a professional designer, there’s a high probability that you’ve asked yourself, “What font would look right for this image I’m creating for my blog?”

You may have a gazillion fonts installed on your computer, but it’s a painful process having to sift through them all to find the right one. Or if you’re like me at one time, you’d copy and paste multiple instances of some text and apply different fonts to each to make a decision.

Well those days are over if you have one of these two font utilities at your side: AMP Font Viewer or Font Thing. After installing either of these, you can view that large collection of fonts you have on your computer with sample text that you enter. What a time saver!

My personal favorite is AMP Font Viewer because I can simply view more fonts at a glance. But either one will do you right. :)

    Can I mention that your blog is great. I have a blog in Dutch and reading yours every day. Sometimes I mention things I’ve read here on my blog. So, today I mentioned this font viewer.
