Well, if you have been watching the conversations over at http://facebook.com/zynnyme you might notice that Uriah Guilford is our resident geeky therapist. In fact, Uriah loves technology so much- he even loves Wordpress! (Which we generally do not!) haha...
We know that most of you are not geeks. However, we do know that a few of you may play with fonts from time to time. The thing to realize about fonts as a business owner is that many of the cool free fonts on the Internet are not for free for your business!
(If you think that nobody will ever come after you for using a font or image since you are small business, ask me about the $1,000 mistake I made when "borrowing" a cool image from a blog for a workshop we put on! Side note: The images on Google image search are also NOT free in most cases for commercial use).
But, there IS hope! There are some great fonts that are FREE for commercial use! Notice they are wonderful, but also very easy to read. We love the swirly, pretty fonts as much as the next person- but remember when marketing your busy you want your font to be easy to read on the web, in print, etc.
I hope y'all enjoy! (Oh and if you are wondering how to install a font- post a comment below with the version of your computer Mac or PC and the version of Windows (XP, Vista, 7... or "I don't know"). The type of computer and version will change the instructions COMPLETELY!
In fact, I just downloaded my favorites from the list onto my laptop and my desktop- and it was a completely different process for each of them!
So, until next time- know that you CAN have a successful, thriving business! You can (and should) build your own website (here is why), and technology can help save you time and money!
