Good design is all about good fonts. Ask any graphic designer, and he or she will explain that skill with typeface is one of the keys to good design. Obviously, you’ve got to have the tools. In other words, you’ve got to have fonts. So where do you get them? That’s what we want to tell you today.
First of all, there’s something you need to know. Sharefaith predesigns everything we make, so you don’t have to do much. Our Church PowerPoint Templates come with title slides, Scripture slides, announcement slides, welcome slides, and benediction slides. You shouldn’t need a fancy font for a title or anything. Welcome Video Loops are designed with welcome messages.
The cool thing is, Sharefaith graphics also come in no-text versions. So, a PowerPoint or background can easily be downloaded without a single letter. Our worship videos, one of our most popular assets, is another text-free resource that you can use. If you’re working with this type of design, you’ll need some fonts. And if you want some nice Christian fonts other than Arial or Helvetica.
We have tested each of the following sites, but cannot guarantee that they will always work for you. Each site offer downloads for both Macs and PCs. All fonts will work in your preferred design program or word processing software.
