Default What do you use for printing fonts?

For those of you who print from your computers, do you just use fonts from Word, or use some other program? Any favorites?

Thanks!

There are so many free font sites out there - just do a search on "download free fonts" on Google or your web browser, and you will be amazed at how many come up. It will keep you busy for many happy hours ...! (I know - been there, done that ... LOL!) Have fun.

I use dafont for fonts pretty regularly.

I don't use Word, but you can add fonts to your control panel and use them for anything--I use Open Office programs.

Default Downloading Fonts

Ok so I now know that instead of the greeting card software I asked for and received for Christmas, I could be just downloading free things from the internet?!

Once I have the file in "my received files" how do I get it into the fonts in Word? Thanks in advance for any help : )

Here is a tutorial for installing fonts.
There are also free fonts to download.

You can always return the software if you have not opened the box. I thought we needed the Hallmark software at school for various things we make - big mistake. My vote is take it back.

Thanks for the info. Since my son bought it for me in GA, I guess I will keep it. Should still be useful for arranging text boxes, ideas etc.
