Web Wednesday: What the…

We’re expanding Web Wednesdays to cover not just great websites, but also great web technologies and tools that are useful to apparel decorators.  One of my favorite tools online is What The Font by My Fonts.  Whether you are involved in the design process or not, as an apparel decorator you will inevitably find your self in a situation where you will have to do some typesetting.  Often you may be adding text to a design which requires matching some sort of obscure typeface.  Searching for a matching font can be oh so time consuming.  What The Font allows you to upload an image of the typeface that you are trying to match, that image is instantly analyzed and font matches are suggested.  You may not always get a perfect match (sometimes you do!), but at the very least you will get some very close suggestions.
