Finding the Right Font When You Have Tons Installed

If you caught this post about installing fonts, you might be overwhelmed when trying to decide on the perfect font to use. As a self-professed font snob, I totally understand. I don't necessarily have a lot of time to test all 1,200+ fonts on my computer for each document I create, but I also want to use "the perfect font" for the occasion. 

There's a neat little website called Wordmark that will help you decide on a font more quickly. 

When you go to the website, you see this very simple screen:

Click on the white "wordmark" word in the middle, top of the screen. When you do, the word "wordmark" will disappear, and you'll be able to type whatever you want in that box. After you type, press "enter." 

The screen will automatically load that phrase in all the fonts you have on your device. You can scroll down to see what that phrase would look like in each font on your computer so you can make a quick decision.

When/if you download new fonts and re-visit Wordmark, the new font options will appear on the screen without you having to do anything extra.
