10-17-2005, 07:55 PM
number of fonts???? Right at the moment, my count is up to (please don't laugh) at 660!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can anyone beat that? or am I the QUEEN of fonts???? :)

10-17-2005, 07:56 PM
BTW...I KNOW I will never use them all, but they are kinda like shoes...nice to have JUST IN CASE I need the perfect one!!! :P

10-17-2005, 08:11 PM
Leora..I have 350 fonts INSTALLED and 2,500 fonts NOT installed. :) Yep..I'm a font-rat.

10-17-2005, 08:13 PM
i think around 1000 installed and several thousand in a folder not installed unless I decide I need them (the font thing is a nice sorter) - last time I ran it there were like 3000 fonts in my "fonts that shouldn't be installed" folder - lots of dings...dings are cool ;)

10-17-2005, 08:15 PM
I have 7660 font in a folder not install and probably 200 installed that I use regularly. I am a total fontaholic...


10-17-2005, 08:16 PM
whew...I am SOOO glad you have more than me!!! ;) I am not a hoarder YET....(as far as FONTS are concerned...but shoes and chocolate, now that's another story!)

10-17-2005, 08:18 PM
7660?????? HOLY FREAK!!!!!! Can anyone else beat that???? :)

10-17-2005, 08:42 PM
Leora..you HOARDE chocolate?? Now..where is it that you live again? :)

10-17-2005, 08:55 PM
7660?????? HOLY FREAK!!!!!!

HOLY FREAK <----- I like that. Going to have to start using that.

Ditto it, too, Robin -- 7660? I thought *I* was a font geek, but I am not even on your planet. or AmyJo's.


10-17-2005, 09:39 PM
Wow...you ladies far surpass me! I only wish I knew half of what i have. Is anyone like me and goes through phases... where you have like 5 you use all the time? I can't even imagine how many doubles I have on my system. I really need to organize them already! haha

10-17-2005, 10:57 PM
Man I thought I had a ton in the 2000 range.. Robin for sure has me beat!

10-17-2005, 11:56 PM
7660?????? HOLY FREAK!!!!!! Can anyone else beat that???? :)

sadly, yes.


yes- that is eleven thousand seven hundred and ninety four fonts.

10-18-2005, 12:01 AM
LOL Tracey, we're certifiable I think. That's just NUTS!!

Robin : )

10-18-2005, 12:07 AM
no doubt!

and my husband thinks that digital scrapbooking is the only love in my life, lol!

10-18-2005, 10:15 PM
OMG....you girlies and your FONTS! :P well...all 660 of mine are ARE installed, so do I take the cake for INSTALLED fonts??? :)

10-18-2005, 10:36 PM
hee hee..Mine are all installed...maybe I should reconsider that...lol

10-19-2005, 09:35 PM
Oh My goodness... so many fonts.. i think i have them in the hundreds range... im pretty selective of what fonts i install.. just deleted a ton actually.

10-19-2005, 10:15 PM
Actually, I know someone on another message board (paper scrapping site) that has over 60,000 fonts! :)

Me, I imagine I have somewhere between 500-1000 fonts.


10-20-2005, 08:29 AM
929 installed and very unorganized fonts here!

10-20-2005, 08:53 AM
Holy cow!!!

I have like 300 installed, but still find myself going to my top 10 favorites. :regular_s

10-20-2005, 10:58 AM
Oh my - I have way more than I can count. I have a folder of 5000 that I purchased for commercial use. But then I have a ton more that are either freeware or shareware. If I had to guess, I would say I have about 500 of those. Way too many sometimes.....

10-20-2005, 11:10 AM
I have 1093 installed on my computer, with many more I haven't managed to get around to installing... mind you it's still not enough! hahahaa

10-20-2005, 11:17 AM
I have about 20,000. Not all installed though, rofl :)

10-20-2005, 04:09 PM
20,000 OMG I can't even imagine. I have tons too but dont know how many. Maybe more in the league of 500. After reading this thread that seems like a mere drop in the bucket. The pure thought is making my head spin

11-08-2005, 03:51 AM
I am afraid to say how many fonts I have...I am a major fonts collector and have been collecting fonts for several years. Since I got a computer back around 1998 I think LOL... I just got a new program that's free called font hit font tools to help me keep them organized and so I can visualise all the ones I have that aren't installed. It really is a fun program. I can type in what I want to say and browse the words in every font. I have to stop myself from going to 2 peas and buying more. It's my substitute for buying shoes I guess...because I only have about 6 pair of shoes to my name.

I keep around 550 fonts installed...more than I should and then I have cd's and dvd data disks with my uninstalled fonts. (lets just say more than 15,000 and less than 50,000 I think) I have them organized by alphabet and have a search file for them by categories. I collected every free font I could find and then started buying my favorites. I am addicted to 2 peas and lettering delights.

So yes, it's about time I learn to do digital layouts. I can use pictures and fonts, but am clueless on elements...

11-08-2005, 04:32 AM
Oh I'm sure I have several thousand fonts. I think I have about 8 or 900 installed on my machine right now (I've got LOTS of RAM and 2 hard drives). I'm a total font addict. :regular_s

12-01-2005, 02:03 PM
I have been collecting fonts for about 8 years now since I had a sidejob designing web pages. Because of this I have.. Wait for it, Wait for it... about 12,765 fonts.. Yikes huh!? Know what the saddest part is? I only **really** use and reuse about 100 of them. I have 500 installed and the rest are all on a DVD. It takes Font Thing literally an hour to load it.. LOL

12-03-2005, 06:49 PM
I have around 650. I had no idea until I opened and printed every. one. of. them. out. I collected hardcopies so that I could catalog them... Turned out to be a really good idea.

12-04-2005, 12:51 AM
I think I have about 480 installed and I don't know how many thousands on CD.

12-04-2005, 01:09 AM
I know I'm over 30,000. I am going to do a search and try to see just how many there are. I have under 1000 installed, you can't have too many installed, it slows down the system. I'll be back later with a total!! :thinking2

01-26-2006, 09:46 PM
I have over 20,000 INSTALLED fonts

01-26-2006, 10:43 PM
yeah, I have a couple thousand....

01-26-2006, 11:07 PM
ummm...i have about 12000 on this computer, about 4000 on my old hard drive :) I've been collecting since 1998!

01-26-2006, 11:07 PM
I have over 20,000 INSTALLED fonts

WOW! Really? WOW!!!!!

01-27-2006, 01:42 AM
Installed: 200
Not Installed: 15,000
On Disc: 10,000

Fontfreak ;) Yeah, that's me!

It's a healthy addiction, really. I've got my husband convinced it is anyway..."But honey, I could be doing crack..."
