Font FAQ

How do I use the fonts?

First, be sure you have downloaded and installed them correctly by carefully following these directions. Then they will show up in the font drop down box of your favorite program– like Word or Photoshop.

You can also use the fonts on your Blogger/Blogspot blog!! Here’s how. :)

I followed the directions but it’s still not working.

I’m so sorry about that! The fonts are just standard truetype fonts — nothing special — and I can assure you that when correctly installed, the fonts do work in all programs on Mac OSX and Windows. But if it’s not working for you, it’s likely a problem with your computer or operating system. Unfortunately without seeing your computer in person, there’s really no way to know what the problem could be. If you are receiving a specific error message,  try typing the exact message you get into Google. You can also post your question in a tech support forum where the computer geniuses hang out! :)

When I try to use a font, the top and bottom are being cut off.

It’s possible you have an old version of the font. Please delete that font and download the newest version from here: Fonts for Peas or here: Free Scrapbook Fonts.

What program do you use to make fonts?

Font Creator Pro

How did the “Fonts for Peas” get their name?

I have always loved handwriting. The first computer disc I ever bought was a disc with 300 handwriting fonts. It was $20, and I saved my babysitting money for weeks to buy it! Once I learned there was a program where you could *make your own* handwriting fonts, I knew I had to do it. I had always wanted my handwriting as a font. I started asking everyone I knew to write their alphabet for me so I could turn it into a font. But that wasn’t enough- I wanted more! :) I posted on the message board “Two Peas in a Bucket” asking people to send me their handwriting and I would send them a font back for free. I got so many wonderful samples, I knew I had to share the fonts I’d made with others who loved fonts just as much as I did. I created the site “Fonts for Peas” as a way to share those fonts back. I still love making and sharing these fonts freely today!

I work at a school and we are looking for a font to use that looks like the way Handwriting without tears makes their letters. We would like to use it to make labels and such for classroom shelves. Do you have anything that makes an “a” look like a circle with a line by the side? Please let me know, otherwise, thank you anyway, these others are helpful too.

I love the fonts…Thanks!
But I can’t figure out how to do the cute signs that seem to be included with certain fonts. Is there somewhere that tells you the alt #? thanks!!

I’m not sure if this has happened to anyone else (I’m in a rush right now and don’t have time to read the comments- sorry!) but on many of the fonts that I have downloaded, I can’t see the numbers! So I usually have to write out the number, which is aggravating… How can I fix it?!? Or, has this happened to anyone else?!?

Reply

Lindsay April 3, 2013 at 11:24 pm

It’s the opposite for me! I can ONLY see the numbers

Amanda April 3, 2013 at 11:30 pm

On a Mac, you can see the full font preview in Font Book if you use Repertoire or Custom mode. For some reason Mac changed something in the latest update and now some fonts are having trouble displaying properly on the Sample setting. Hoping they fix it soon. :) Hope this helps!

Hello amanda.

I’m french. Sorry for my language.
If I understand well, it’s possible to have letters with accents.
“You may write any extra characters on their own line, after everything else. :)”
I have to put the letters with accents in a last line, at the bottom of the page.
Is there an order ? Which ?
Super, I will be able to right my ask for job handwriting.
Thank you.

Bonjour Amanda,
Si je comprends bien,
il est possible d’écrire en français car les accents sont disponibles..
Il faut écrire les lettres avec les accents en fin de page. Mais y a-t’il un ordre ?
Génial, je vais pouvoir faire mes demandes d’emploi manuscrites.
Merci Amanda

Hi!
I love your fonts. When I try to download them I get a window telling me I have to subscribe for $29.95, to WinZip. Is that true? Can’t I download the fonts without that program? If I click cancel on that popup message I get nothing and have not been able to download any fonts.

Thank you!

Hello! I love your fonts!! I teach at a dual immersion school and often create documents in Spanish. I was wondering if you have any that offer extended characters?

Thank you!

Natalie Hart September 16, 2012 at 11:59 pm

Thank-you so much for such an awesome site, and for making my scrapbooking life so much easier. If you were here in person, I’d give you a great big hug – you really are a tremendous help!!

Is there any way to print out the font samples all together so that I can reference the printed list to find the one I want? At this point, I am making a sample list in word, but if I could just print it off your webpage, that would be cool and save me time of opening each one and hoping its the font I wanted. Just wondering?

Thank-you again for what you do :)

Hello,

I am a teacher in California, and I wanted to know if it is ok to use your fonts in a unit which I post on Teachers Pay Teachers? I would of course give you credit, I just couldn’t find anything on your website. Thank you SO much!

Hey! Your fonts are awesome! I love your work. =)
I wonder if there are any Doodles fonts with fat kitties drawn, eyes shut with huge lashes (a liiittle bit like this: http://cdn-s3-2.wanelo.com/product/image/3009705/x200.jpg) and a cute photographic camera. It’d be great!

I was wondering if you can take a writing sample and change it into a font. We are trying to make a decal for our nursery and my husband would love to turn his late fathers handwriting into a font for the decal. We have lots of samples, but of course not in the format we have seen for uploading into font creators! Is this anything that sounds possible to you? We would love it!

Hey Amanda! I was wondering if you have any fonts available that have Greek letters? I’d like to have some cute fonts for my sorority.

Thanks,
