How to Pair Fonts in Cricut Design Space

When you are looking to pair up a couple of fonts, it’s important to keep some basic design “rules” in mind.

Pairing Fonts In Cricut Design Space Tips


You don’t want to use two fonts that are really similar in appearance. So, one simple suggestion is to choose one font that is really skinny and another that is chunky.

Try Pairing A Skinny Font With A Chunky One

For example, looking at fonts here on Makers Gonna Learn, you could try pairing up Luna Type (a skinny font) with Lollipop (a chunky font). You can see how cute those could be together!

Pair A Script Font With An All Caps One


Another great pairing is to use a script font with an all caps font. A great option for this here on our website would be Merci and Michael.

Use A Very Plain Font With A Fancy One


Use a very plain and simple font with a fancy one. Here, we’re looking at Plain Jane (plain font) and Polka Dots (fancy font).

Examples Of Font Pairings In Cricut Design Space

Remember that these guidelines aren’t perfect. You may pull a couple of fonts over into Design Space and decide that you just don’t love them together. That’s perfectly okay! But by applying these basic principles, you will narrow down your options significantly and it will make it so much easier to create your design.

Pro tip: Once you find some pairings that you really love, you might want to save them in a file or a Google doc so you can remember them for the future!
