Font Sale and How to Use Them

I love cute fonts and alphabets and I'm so excited because they are having a HUGE sale!  Many of their alphabets are only 50 cents each (they are regulary $4).  If you've been thinking about getting some cute fonts or alphabets to start your year off now is the time.   Just click on the pink button to the left that says 9 free fonts to start shopping.  For those of you who are new to these fonts the colorful ones are called alphabets.  They work like clipart and there is a free program that you can download called Creative Delights.  It is a super easy program to use.  :)

Question: How do I get my alphabets into the program?

Once you download the program you will need to close the program. 
Then, go to lettering delights and log in to your account.
Click on Order History
Then click on View order     From here you will need to install all of your alphabets and cliparts into the creative delights program.  To do this click on the hotlink under install file and then click RUN
Then, follow the steps.  Once you have done this for all of your alphabets open up Creative Delights and you will see it populating your list of alphabets.  This makes it super easy to use them. 

Question:  What is the easiest way to use them?


The alphabets work a lot like clipart.  Once you type it in you can't seperate it.  For example, If I want to type the words Hello There and I want it to appear as one line then I would:
1. Type it in
2. Click on the copy icon at the top and then hit the okay button that pops up
3. Open my word document and hit the paste icon.
4.  From here it works like clipart so you can make it larger or smaller just like a clipart image.


If you want the words to be on seperate lines of text then you would type the word Hello and then follow steps 2-4  and then you would go back and type the word There and repeat the steps.   There is NO need to save images as a file or do any of that I just simply copy and paste.   It is a SUPER EASY program to use once you get the hang of it.   I hope this helps you!  :)

Remember:  If you are making things to sell on TPT you have to buy a commercial license for EACH alphabet that you want to use.  They charge $15.00 for each alphabet that you buy to use commercially. 

If you are planning to purchase alphabets now or in the future please consider using the button on my blog.  I get a small percentage from sales that are generated from my blog and the money is used for outings for my brother, J.R.  Thanks so much!  If you still have questions about how to use the alphabets leave a comment and I will do my best to answer them.  :)  

AFTER you have used my pink button to make your purchases you can CLICK HERE to download the free Creative Delights Companion program.

  1. Hi Deanna,

    I've bought lots of alphabets but can't find the free program you are talking about. I even emailed their customer service but have gotten no reply. Can you please tell me where I find the free program?

    Thank you!

  4. Deanna,
    I have bought a bunch of stuff from them because I LOVE your work...:) I can't seem to figure out how to import my purchased items onto the Creative Delights though. Thanks for the tip...I never used them because it was such a pain to make a title using each letter individually!

  8. I love Lettering Delights too! I have to say their customer service e-mail person is AWFUL. I had a $5 off coupon code that wouldn't work and it would take him days to e-mail me back and forth. I finally bought the stuff without the code because it is GREAT stuff. My question is....the program doesn't work for a mac? I DL it, but it won't open properly. Thanks!

  13. Okay, so I typed in my words and selected copy, but no "OK" box popped up as previously referenced. Is there a step that I'm missing because it's not copying and allowing me to paste in a document? Thanks in advance for your help & your great tips!

  14. Deanna - Thank you so much for this! I never knew about the program and always just copied and pasted each letter into the project I was creating. Thanks for the tips and keep them coming!!

  19. Deanna,

    Thanks so much in explaining this. I recently bought some things because I love your things and the things I see at some of the other blogs, but I couldn't figure it out. I just tried it and it worked! Yeah!

    For those people asking about a Mac, that was my question, too. It does work except I did things a little differently. I typed what I wanted. Then, I clicked "open new document" below what I typed. It appeared on the screen. Then I went to Edit and clicked "copy". Then, I opened clicked "paste" onto a new word document. It worked!

  20. Deanna, would you be willing to share a copy of your daily schedule and maybe one full week of your lesson plans. I would love to get an idea of a typical day and week in your classroom. It would really help me to transition back into k5!

  21. Hello! I absolutely LOVE your blog. I search it weekly, if not daily. I have MAC computer and cannot get the creative delights program to install/download. Do you have any suggestions as to what to do? Does the creative delights work on a mac? I have emailed the website, but have not heard back. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

  25. Hi,

    I would love to purchase some fonts. I am willing to go to the site you posted. What font did you use to make your labels? I can't seem to find it on the lettering site. Thanks. Marla
