Many of our customers choose the default fonts that are displayed on each design on this website, however we welcome your desire to change any of the fonts. To assist you, we've put together this guide to make it easier for you to choose fonts for your design. If you have any questions at all you may click here to contact us.
Your first concern in choosing a font for a personalised chocolate favour, should be that it matches the theme or purpose of your favour. Every font has its own mood or personality. Maybe it’s serious, casual, playful, or elegant. You’ll need to determine what a particular font style is saying to you, and whether that fits with your design theme. If the characteristics the font is communicating don’t match the message of your overall theme, then there will be a visual disconnect for guests. When browsing fonts, it can be easy to get caught up in all the fun and interesting choices, but don’t let personal preferences get in the way; a font that you think is distinctive or stylish may not be useful or appropriate for the personalised chocolate favour you’re looking to design.
Next, consider context and audience. Where and how your favour will be viewed should also figure into your font choices. For instance, a 20 gram square chocolate favour will need a font that’s easily readable at a small size. Who is viewing your design may also be important. Is your audience of a certain age or demographic? Will your font choice resonate with them?
Fonts generally fall in to 4 categories:
1) Traditional (Serif): Serif fonts have little “feet” or lines attached to the ends of their letters. They’re thought to look more serious or traditional. These fonts are generally great for use as personalised messages on the favours.
2) Modern (Sans-Serif): “Sans-serif” literally means “without serif” — these fonts don’t have the extra lines on the ends of letters. For that reason, they’re thought to look more modern and streamlined. These fonts are generally great for use as personalised messages on the favours.
3) Cursive/Handwriting (Script): Scripts are what we might think of as cursive- or handwriting-style fonts. They generally have connecting letters. You’ll find that script fonts come in many different styles, from elegant, to fun and casual, to hand-drawn. These are generally great for use as names on the favours, but can be used as messages as well.
4) Decorative / Display: When you hear a font categorized as decorative, display, or novelty, it all means the same thing — that font is meant to get your attention. They’re often more unusual than practical and should only be used in small doses and for a specific effect or purpose.
