I admit I'm guilty your honor. ;D So where are my partners-in-crime? Any accomplices? :wilber:

Although Times New Roman is the default font, I also think that many people choose Comic Sans for important notices. Imo things like that must be presented with a more serious and professional looking one but readable. ~:o

A font that's quickly taking the place of Comic Sans is Bank Gothic.

For me I guess Palatino Linotype. But it is plain looking than Times New Roman

Edit: I thought you guys were talking about serious fonts, but instead a font similar and better than Comic Sans. Maybe Verdana is cute imo. :)

Nice font. I haven't used this one yet. So I'm downloading it now. 8)

i'm not sure but i think david woods meant bank gothic is overused lol or maybe you're joking :P

Gotham is was a cool font a few years ago in the obama campaign but overused now - still far preferable to impact, although there are probably better choices

With fonts you can edit the vertices, especially with simple fonts like helvetica, arial, etc.



i think i used arial or trebuchet ms here - can you see the changes ? (u, n, e and t):

I mean Bank Gothic is overused, It's originally from Modern Warfare but I've seen it in commercials, on restaurant menus (Steak n' Shake), in movies (Despicable Me opening credits), on like 8 different businesses, and so on. It's nuts!
