Do you find it so difficult to find videos about the process for choosing fonts for your custom money card holders?
By the end of this video, you’ll be armed with the simple framework you need to pick a font for your money card holder design in minutes so you can focus on the crafting portion.
3 Step Font Selection Guide
Step 1: Pick Your Topic/Theme
The first crucial step in font selection is to determine the topic or theme of your money card holder project. This theme acts as the foundation upon which you’ll build your design.
Picking a clear theme provides a sense of direction and purpose to your project. It narrows down your font choices and helps you establish a coherent and visually appealing design. When you have a theme, it becomes easier for the recipient to connect to the money card holders, as they can instantly recognize and relate to the theme.
Crafters that create money card holders with clear themes tend to gain popularity with their money card holder designs and they tend to be appreciated by recipients for their clarity and theme-related aesthetics.
Here are some ways you can come up with a topic/theme for your money card holder:
- Pick a holiday such as Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas
- Use a special occasion or event like weddings, baby showers, or graduations
- Get inspired by a hot quote or trending meme.
Step 2: Create a Search Term
Creating a search term is like using a magic wand to uncover fonts that precisely match your chosen theme. It involves crafting a specific keyword phrase that includes your topic or theme along with the word “font.” Ex: Thanksgiving font
This step drastically simplifies your font search process. Instead of sifting through countless fonts, you’ll immediately find options tailored to your project’s theme. This efficiency reduces decision fatigue and streamlines your creative workflow, leaving you feeling more in control.
When crafters use search terms to pick a font, they save time and effort that would have otherwise been wasted on unrelated fonts.

Step 3: Pick Your Font Style
Selecting the right font style is where the magic of conveying emotions happens. Depending on your project’s theme and the feelings you wish to evoke, you’ll choose a font style that aligns with your intentions. For instance, if you aim for playfulness, opt for handwritten fonts, while elegance is best expressed through script fonts.
Your font style communicates emotions and intentions to your recipient. Crafters who understand this leverage font styles to make their money card holders truly resonate with recipients. This step empowers you to create an emotional connection with those who receive your cards, leaving them feeling delighted and understood.
Crafters who choose the right font style elevate their money card holders to a new level of impact.
????Bonus Step: Use a font duo
Using a font duo is like having a secret weapon in your design arsenal. These duos are meticulously crafted by designers to complement each other perfectly. They eliminate the guesswork and time-consuming search for fonts that pair well together.
Font duos reduce the decision-making stress. When you use a font duo, you eliminate the uncertainty and time-consuming process of hunting for two fonts that harmonize. This streamlines your design workflow and boosts your confidence. Knowing that your fonts are designed to complement each other, you feel more in control of your project.
Crafters who use font duos discover the immense convenience they offer. They no longer struggle to find font combinations that work harmoniously. Instead, they enjoy the confidence of knowing that their font choices are expertly matched.
