How to Use Fonts in Pages to Create Bullet Journal Titles
1. The first step is to install fonts on your MAC computer.
Remember that The Hungry JPEG, Font Bundle, and The Creative Market offer weekly freebies which include fonts and graphics. Make sure to sign up to their newsletters to know what weekly freebies they are offering.
2. Once you have a couple of fonts on your computer, go to the website wordmark.it. In the search bar type a letter or sentence and click enter.
3. A new window with all the fonts that were installed on your computer will show up. Scroll through the fonts and select the fonts that you want to compare. After you have selected different fonts, on the top right of the screen click the “filter selected” button.
4. A window with all the fonts you selected will appear. For this tutorial, I used the font at the bottom right of the picture.
Highlight and copy the word or sentence (command + c) that you like > open the Pages application and paste the font (command + v).
Note: If you are not able to paste the font, type the sentence inside a text box and in the format tab select the name of the font.
5. Use the format tool to increase the size and position of the font.
6. Repeat the first step to mix two different fonts.
Note: To be able to place the second font close to the first font, use the format tool > arrange > move with text > none.
7. Some fonts come with special characters, these characters are known as alternates and swatches. Look at the letter “w” in the picture (picture below). Notice the cool way the letter “w” is displayed at the bottom of the picture.
Here is how you can add this cool “w” effect to your title.
- Open Font Book (command + space > type Font Book) or go to Applications > Font Book.
- Look for the font that you are using in the Pages application. The font name needs to match in the Font Book and the Pages application.
- Scroll through the different letters that the font offers. When you find the letter that you want to replace, select the letter from the Font Book > copy the letter (command + c) > select the letter that you want to replace from the Font Book and paste the letter from the Font Book (command + v) into the pages application.
That’s it! This is the easiest way to play with the beautiful alternates and swatches that come with fonts.
8. When you finish creating your tiles, save the file as PDF.
To save the PDF: In the top left of the screen select file > export to > PDF > image quality “best” > next > select the folder where you are going to save your PDF file.
