I have well over 2000 fonts, but am having a heck of a time finding one in my collection that would work really well for fill in with patterned papers... You know to creat my own matching text for a page that doesnt have a matching alpha? ;)
Most of my font are scripts or thin as I create wedding invites, and there isnt really a need for big chunky text! :)
Id perfer a free font, but low cost for an awesome one would be fine too.
TIA ladies!!! You always pull through for me!! ;)

I want to know this same thing. I asked yesterday in a chat at a different site and didn't get a good answer. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Laura

I like DoradoHeadline, it's a Klein font you can find here: http://moorstation.org/typoasis/designers/klein05/text/dorado_head.htm Very simple, but chunky :)

I've used "cheri liney" before to fill in with paper, you can get it here:

I really like ones that provide a bit of a border - if that makes sense :)

My friend used "BoyzRGross" and it turned out really cute.

You can get it here. http://www.momscorner4kids.com/fonts/bfonts.htm

It is a curly, cutesy font.

Good luck.

I like century gothic -- remember, you can bold it or stroke it to make it bigger. Also, I have a tut on my personal site that shows some options for filling a font with PP ~

Yup, I was going to say Century Gothic as well, esp. when you set it to 'bold'.

I really like the font "Bambi" that you can find for free on dafont.com (http://www.dafont.com). By the way, it's a great site for fonts of all type, and even for wingdings. I also really like 1001fonts (http://www.1001fonts.com/). Hope you'll find what you need!
