Frequently when I’m designing a bookmark or other promotional material I find myself in the position of trying to match a font to a book cover. People who have not taken graphic arts classes tend to think this is a simple task–trust me, it’s not. I took a class in college where that was one of our assignments, we were given a two or three word sample and volumes of fonts. Then we had to find the font! WooHee!! What fun!
But today I found this cool online tool that searches through fonts for you–not EVERY font in existence, but the fonts this site has for sale. And while neither of the fonts I tried matched perfectly, they were a lot closer than hand grenades.
Here’s the link.
