How to use Google Web Fonts


Yay! Another awesome link up by The Teaching Tribune! Unfortunately, I did not have time to create another font of my own, but I am sure you will enjoy this post just as much.
The first thing is to not let the name "Google Web Font" fool you. Sure you can easily use these fonts on your blog but did you know that you can download them and use them in your commercial products? Yep! It's true. Check out this message form Google that talks all about it. This morning I downloaded 95 fonts to add to my collection. I love that these fonts are Truly Hassle Free and I don't have to worry about using them. They have 600+ fonts for you to choose from.

1. To download the fonts, you will first need to make a collection. Browse through all of the fonts and click "Add to Collection".
2. Once you have added all of your favorite fonts, you will need to download them by clicking this tiny arrow in the top left hand side of the screen.
3. Next, the window below will pop up and you can click "Download the font families in your Collection as a .zip file"
4. Once your download is done, unzip the file and follow your normal process for installing fonts.
5. Be sure to come back and let me know which font was your favorite. :)

Of course one of my favorites is the Great Vibes font. This is the one I am using for my blog design.
