With so many fonts to choose from, no two documents will ever be the same. Add fonts to suit any occasion! Follow the tips below to rock out your next Doc

Font Tips: 

• Don't use too many fonts, it can overwhelm the reader. Also, try not to change font mid sentence. 

• Use 'display fonts' in small doses to ensure readability. Try using fonts like 'Pacifico' and 'Lobster' as headings, rather than as body copy.  

• Be bold with your font choices! Don't use fonts that are too similar (different versions of almost the same font), that can be confusing to the reader. 

Don't be afraid to get creative in your next Doc. Fonts can be a great way to catch your readers attention and keep it throughout. Stay tuned to our blog for more great updates.
