- Opposites Attract: Try using two fonts that are complete opposites together like serif and sans serif, a big fat font and a skinny font, a fancy script and a simple serif or an uppercase font with a lower case one.
- Choose fonts with different kerning or play with it yourself. The kerning is the space between letters. It's really trendy to have an E N O R M O U S space between letters on some words!
- Don't go overboard. Limit the fonts to 3-5 different font in one document. Sure, you will some examples that can pull off more but leave that to the professionals!
- Body text or the "bulk" of the text that a person has to read (like what you are doing now) needs to be in something easy to read. For print, serif fonts are the easiest on the eyes to read. Sans serif is easier to read on the computer though.
- Mix fonts from the same historical period but have different features.
Have fun mixing it up! Want to know what fonts were used in the image above?
