Have you ever scratched your head about which fonts are best to use for your classroom or TPT resources?
You're not alone. Font pairing takes practice and a little extra time to get right. 
In this episode, I am sharing with you some typography and font pairing tips. These ideas I share with you are perfect if you're wanting to creating a parent form to send home, permission slips, TPT resources, or anything else you are creating for your classroom and business.
These tips are taken from outside of the teacher world (from the graphic design world)!
In this episode, you will learn:
  • What typography is (and how it is more common than you think!)
  • The 3 types of fonts that are used
  • How you should go about choosing a font
  • Easy font pairing tips that you can tweak and implement as soon as you're in front of a computer
  • How you can find cute and fun fonts for your classroom and for your Teachers pay Teacher business
I've been font obsessed since childhood, and have definitely upped my game considerably (my 5th grade fonts of choice were Kristen ITC and Ravie). I hope this episode gives you some clarity on how you can pair fonts for the right occasion and audience!
