Video Tutorial: Downloading and Installing Fonts (for PC and Mac!)

Do you ever find yourself with font envy?
Let’s face it: you can only use Comic Sans, Century Gothic, and Times New Roman so many times before you (and your students!) pass out from boredom. Installing new fonts can seem very daunting to a novice, but I promise, once you do it a few times, the process really isn’t so bad.

I’ve created TWO helpful videos for those of you who are new to the world of installing new fonts. One is for PC users, the other is for Mac.

One quick note of caution: not all fonts (or download sites) are created equal. I HIGHLY recommend downloading from sites that are tried and true, such as Kevin and Amanda or Lettering Delights. Yes, many other sites offer “free” fonts, but they offer very little information in regard to terms of use or download quality. Download at your own risk! You don’t want to take a shortcut and end up with a virus (or a lawsuit for copyright infringement!)

  2. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Last night I spent a big chunk of time just trying to figure out how to use some cute borders I downloaded. My husband had to help out because I couldn’t make heads or tails of it.

Hi, I'm Maria.

I’m a former kindergarten teacher turned work-from-home mom. I still love sharing ideas and resources to make teaching easier, so you can focus on what really matters in the classroom. When I’m not working on the blog, you’ll find me chasing kids around the house with a cold cup of coffee in my hand (some things never change even once you’re out of the classroom!)
