Face the Typeface…or Meet FontZee!

June 30, 2008

I gotta tell you…playing around with Zazzle’s text tool is fun. There are so many cool fonts to choose from that I don’t think I’ve ever actually seen them all. I always end up finding one I like before I explore deeper.

But therein lies a problem…with so many fonts to choose from, it takes a long time to test each one out to see if it works in your design. Add to that the fact that you would find a font, select it, the font chooser would go away, your design would get updated, and THEN you make the decision whether it works or not. If it doesn’t, you start all over and open the font chooser dialog again. Phew.

Well, be weary no longer, folks! There’s a new font selector in town, and he’s kicking picas and taking names! I call him FontZee. (Hey, why not? We have Maggie the magnifier!)

Bask in FontZee’s glory:

Cool, beautiful, easy...it\'s Fontzee!

So what’s so great about it?

  • Fonts are organized better…each font category now lists how many fonts it includes
  • Select a font and see it update on your design immediately! This is the big one for me. Now I can scroll through and select a font, immediately decide whether it works, choose another one, etc.
  • Recently used fonts are now saved in the dialog
  • The font dialog actually loads a bit faster :-)

See, people? It’s the little things that make me happy!

The name FontZee is not official, nor does Zazzle promote the use of it. It is simply a product of this editor’s sick mind, and any similarity to any person, living or dead, is purely coincidental. The end.

Movie fans get your tickets, Disney/Pixar’s newest animated feature WALL*E hits theaters today! I can’t wait to see this movie! I was standing in line for tickets this morning before coming to Zazzle and thinking, “What would make seeing WALL*E more funnertastic?” Well, I figured it out, going to WALL*E with custom WALL*E gear! Good thing Zazzle’s got all the WALL*E gear you’ll need, from EVE t-shirts, WALL*E mousepads, WALL*E sweatshirts and more! So go to the movie, get some popcorn (I like half butter, soggy popcorn is no good) and see WALL*E save the world!
