How to create a text/font preview

Highlighted

My site offers customisable clothing, and features 100s of fonts. Because there are so many fonts, I'd like a way to display all these in a preview. I had thought about a basic tumblr preview that just has some example text of each font as an image that a user can just scroll through, however, I'd really like an option where a customer can type their own text and get a preview, kind of like on 1001fonts.com

 

Has anyone any suggestions on how to achieve this?

 

Thank you

Hi Corrupt_Grail,

 

It's a great question. FontPeek is a tool that can do just that. It gives you a small code snippet that you put in your website which provides your users a textbox to safely preview your fonts without risking allowing them to download the font without paying for it.

 

You can learn more here.

Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions at hello@wyatt.engineer

 

Best,

Wyatt

I'd love to learn more about this. I went to the website and Shopify is not offered, currently.

I am looking for the Shopify app for FontPeek and I can't seem to find it. Can you tell me what it is under?

Hey @RWLO, there is no Shopify app. With FontPeek there are a few ways to get it to work with Shopify. Here's a video explaining how. Hope this helps.

Hi there,

Is this a tool that anyone can use to let their customers preview their font selection? I am in need of a font text preview tool like yours to add to my Etsy shop. I have not yet created my Shopify website. I would like to add a link to my shop where a customer can preview their text in the different fonts I offer. How can I achieve this? 

 

Thanks!

You need to create a one page font preview website and link to your product website.

 

If you want this type of website please email me.

Thanks for reaching out. I recommend using the Showroom feature, where you have a page of font previews and then you add the link to your Etsy listings. Alternatively, you can also create a "Direct Link" to each font as needed by hitting the "Direct Link" button.

For more information on the Showroom, you can watch this video: https://youtu.be/WLg8PgZ7tIU?t=100


Please let me know if you have any questions.

I saw your website but it's not perfect for all font family.

It's very complicated
