Graphic Design Basics: Fun with Fonts

Learn some of the basics of working with fonts! Did you know you can use your favorite fonts to create your digital designs, or even to create custom cut files to use on (compatible) electronic cutting machines? I'll teach you some of the basics below! There will be more tutorials coming to this page soon so be sure to bookmark it and check back often!  If you're looking for a great resource for fonts, check out Fontbundles! They have a great selection of fonts from amazing designers all over the world, available for purchase, as well as dozens of FREE FONTS you can use! (They even allow limited commercial use, be sure to read their license.) You can purchase, download, and install fonts right on your computer instantly. Watch my quick video tutorial below if you're not sure how to install a font on your PC or keep scrolling for more tutorials!  

You'll also need some design software to work in, as well as a computer. I personally use and LOVE the Adobe family of programs, so a majority of my tutorials will be using their applications, but there's a lot of other great programs out there too if you're on a tight budget and can't afford to upgrade just yet. (Adobe DOES offer a pretty affordable monthly plan though! Click here to learn more about it!

I use Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop, as well as several other apps from Creative Cloud for most of my designing. You can sign up for a monthly or annual subscription to use their apps on their website here. (They have several different options -- including STUDENT plans!) :) 

If you're on a really tight budget, you can use free software from, or (or many other free programs, I'm only naming a few I've personally used a lot) but you may not have the same functionality as the programs you see in most of my videos. I DO do a few tutorials for other programs on my site too though! ;)
