FREE download for Burlap & Denim readers only! Keep reading…
I want to share an AWESOME website that I found recently. It’s called:
They have the best fonts! You know I love a great font and graphic design and they have both. Once you become a FREE subscriber you can even download a bunch of FREE fonts to try out. (And don’t worry, you won’t get SPAMed for subscribing, I’ve checked them out, they are legit!)
Their Hand Shop pack is totally Burlap & Denim style. It gives you the look of a hand drawn sign using their fonts. In the past I have spent hours (seriously, hours) picking out the best fonts that go together and work for the project that I am working on. The great thing about FontsCafe is that they do the matching for you. So lets say you want to make a chalk board art piece that looks like you are an artist. Just download their Hand Shop Banners & Elements pack. Layout what you want to say, in Publisher or another program, print it off, take it to FedEx and have them print it on a transparency. Then project it on an overhead projector and trace it in chalk! Easy Peasy.
I especially love their elements! I know from experience how hard it is to find great banners and seals to add to my designs, the ones in the hand Shop are perfect for that vintage look.
A few notes for when you download fonts from any site:
Make sure it is a legit site (I am vouching for FontsCafe.com)
Download and install the TrueTypeFont or TTF
If on the demo page only the capital letters are in the font you are downloading, don’t worry, just only use that font with caps lock on (same goes for only lowercase fonts)
Use the designers suggested fonts together-save yourself some time and effort and combine the fonts that are marketed together for a cohesive look
