Want a text walk through? Want to learn how to insert fonts on Procreate, download fonts for Procreate and then import them into the finished layout? If so, this is the tutorial you have been looking for. In this quick look, I will show you how to easily import fonts onto your computer and use them within your layout. Whether you are looking to sell your own creations or you want to purchase fonts for Procreate, you will find this information to be useful.
Fonts for Procreate are not the same as you typical bitmap fonts. Instead of having dots to see the characters, each character will have its own little bitmap. For example, if you were designing a flower, the flower would have its own little bitmap. The flowers could then be added to another project, or we could change our layout to incorporate the flour into another aesthetic.
One simple way to incorporate fonts onto your layout is to download a cute display font onto your computer, such as a Times New Roman or Adobe Roman. Then, open up your layout and move the cursor over the desired character. You would then drag the font’s design over the text that you want to display. Finally, double-click the font to apply the design to your text.
Another easy way to incorporate fonts onto your layout is to use them with a hand-drawn look. To do this, take some special graphics from an old album, draw it onto a piece of paper or card. Then, copy the image over to your computer. Open the fonts you copied over and select the “roman-style” font that you want to use in your layout. Now, paste the drawing onto your layout as if you were simply using a hand-drawn aesthetic.
One last way to incorporate fonts onto your artistic layout is to use them as a part of a larger decorative element. For example, I have used mine to decorate my journaling. Instead of just displaying a regular journal, I’ve used my fancy hand-drawn journal with a decorative border along one side. This is a great choice for people who like to write out their thoughts on paper. You can make it appear as though the journal is hanging on the wall. Then every time you write in your journal, the Font For Procreate will automatically replace the plain journal with a beautifully crafted border-made Font For Procreate journal.
These are just some of the many great fonts for Procreate that you can use to embellish your projects. Use the ones that best suit your needs. Just remember to keep your font’s size in mind when you are trying to determine how large the letters are so that they don’t stick out like a sore thumb. This way you won’t look silly when your text is small and hard to read.
