I think the #1 question I get asked most often is some variation of "What font did you use on ____?" or "Where do you get your fonts?" or "What is your favorite font?"
So while this is not a specific question, I felt like it was a perfect place to start for my first Q&A Monday.
I must start by saying I love fonts. Sometimes I want to hop in a time machine go back to my first few years of teaching and shake my younger naive self while yelling, "Girl there is so much more to life that Comic Sans!!!"
Fonts make me happy.
But, as much as I like to ooh and aah over them, I do find myself gravitating towards the same favorites over and over again. I think that's because when I design my products or items for my own classroom I like them to coordinate. Therefore I don't get too crazy with new fonts all the time.
Currently my favorite is Smiley Monster, but it comes at a cost. There are no capital letters. So I cheat a bit. I often use a lowercase l to be a capital i or I'll add in a capital from Wish I Was Taller or Tangerine and do the rest of the word in my beloved Smiley Monster.
As for where I get them from...Kevin and Amanda rock my world. Two Peas Fonts are also awesomely amazing. I've also been known to spend some time lovin' on DaFont.
Do you have a favorite font?
