Tips for Pairing Fonts:

Finding your perfect font match is not impossible. Just follow a few guidelines as follows:

    • Contrast Serif fonts with a Sans Serif Font. Serif Fonts have small decorative lines or embellishments at the ends of characters, while Sans Serif fonts do not include the decorative lines. A classic example of a Serif font is Times Roman and an example of a Sans Serif font is Helvetica.
    • Headline vs Body Font. Preferably choose a Sans Serif headline and a Serif Font for the body text.  This pairing works because there is high contrast.  It’s also a good match between classic and modern.  Start with your preferred heading then pair it with a few body fonts to see what works best.
    • Think about the personality of the font. Consider the mood you wish to achieve with the final project. If it’s a formal occasion or invitation, then flourish-y, fancy fonts will work. But they won’t work for a sale announcement where you want to make impact. Instead, choose a bold font.
    • Check you have all the elements. Before choosing a font, check that all the letters and characters you wish to use, come with that font, as well as your preferred language.
    • Check for legibility. Look at your font choices from different distances and in different sizes. Are they legible and easy to read when used alone and when paired together?
    • Always check licenses – licenses can change, so always check each font’s license terms when you download it (or use the font in Easil, where it’s approved and ready to go).
  • Be inspired by what works. Look at different font combinations that you see in Easil templates and in this article. Designers have carefully chosen these combinations, so you know they already work!

Just to finish off we have a few last tips for you:

Final Tips for Font Pairing

When choosing your perfectly paired fonts, do the following:

  • Choose the right font for the right background.  Choose a simple, minimalistic, bold font if you are going to be adding it to a busy background (or over an image). If you have a plain background, then by all means, add some flourish.
  • Use Filters and Blur. If you need to make your font pop, then use filters over your image. Or blur the background. These are powerful strategies for working with a detailed background image.
  • Don’t use too many fonts. Just two fonts is the ideal number. Three is the maximum we’d recommend. If you must use more than two fonts, then consider choosing two of them from within the same font family.
  • Experiment with font weight.  You can use the same font, but in a different font weight. This adds the “effect” of an extra font.  You could even experiment with using 3 different font weights of the same font.  (ie light, regular, bold).

Remember – These fonts are available in Easil, ready to go!
