Printables and fonts are my jam so is it any surprise that I put together my favorite font combinations to share with you?

I’m pretty sure I never shared this before but way before I became a blogger……….and way before I was married and had kids actually, I used to LOVE playing with greeting card programs. I remember it was back in the late 90’s and I got my first PC (ya know, one with internet albeit the dreaded dial up – but that was basically it at the time) and a friend of mine showed me this greeting card program on her computer called Print Shop Deluxe. I immediately fell in love with creating my own cards and designs and posters. I had zero clue about graphic design but I liked all the different fonts that the program came with. I remember making a sign for something and I mixed some fonts and a friend of mine (who was a total computer geek) said that it was smart of me to do that with the fonts. I just figured if I was creating something with a lot of text that it would help break things up and make certain things stand out more so I used different fonts. So, I guess even way back then I had a thing for design and I guess you can say it’s something I’m passionate about because here I am almost 20 years later and I still dig design and fonts and making pretty prints!
So. I rounded up a bunch of my favorite font combinations to share with you. They are all FREE too! Boom! You want to create a contrast with your fonts but still have them blend well with each other. Chunky fonts with scripts; Funky fonts with basic fonts; Short and fat fonts with tall and skinny fonts. 95% of the time I use free fonts in my designs but when I see a great sale on a bundle of fonts, I usually go for it. FontBundles.net is a great resource if you want to get a whole mess of fonts for a fraction of the cost. You can get 40 fonts at once for just $29. That’s an incredible bargain.
Okay, onto the free goods!
