Can anyone guide me a little in finding/purchasing a nice calligraphy font? We are using our printer to address our invitations and wanted to explore our options in this regard.

Thank you in advance!!

Thanks Robbie....I just went over to look at what they have to offer and they look incredible :) I didn''t think it would be that easy lol. I''ve heard a good font can cost lots o cash. I''ll go try to download one now and see how it prints :) Thank you!

So_happy asked a question that I myself had been searching for but here''s my question, and I apologize for being computer-semi-illiterate but how do you get your program to recognize the new font? I have Office and Publisher, and can''t get any of my new fonts into my word programs == Help?!?

Sarie, after you save the font to your computer:

Find where you saved the new font and select the zipped folder
In the File menu, select "extract all"
The extraction wizard will pop up, click next
Select where you want to save the file and click next
open up the control panel
open the fonts folder
From the File menu, select "install new font"
Find where you saved your font on the file list on the left and highlight the folder
The font will appear in the font list at the top and you need to highlight it
Hit "ok" and you''re done!
