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?
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.

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 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.
