Today, we’re talking fonts. It’s so easy to add your unique personality to liven up your site, simply by adding fonts and colors. And I’ve found, while working with my clients, that many of them find it hard to easily incorporate their favorite fonts while customizing their sites.
So in this post, we are going to simplify things and make it easy to add your own fancy brand fonts to your website to enhance your design.

Resources Mentioned in the Video:

Divi – the best premium WordPress theme to create a beautiful and professional website EASILY with a drag & drop page builder and TONS of customization options, with NO coding required!
Additional Notes on Creating Multiple Text Images from Your Text Image Template:
In the video, I forgot to rename the image after I clicked on “Export” from the file menu (I was too focused on teaching the PNG file lesson lol). So here are the correct steps:
- After making changes to your original image in order to create a brand new image, hit “Save As” to change the name of the image and save it as a Gimp file that you can edit again in the future
- Then, go back to File and select “Export to” this should bring up that new name you’ve given the new image, if not simply retype the new name in the file name area (this was the step I missed)
- You can then change the file type to jpg or png, whichever you need for the new image
