Fonts




Fonts on a website need to be clear and easy to read, consistent, and not distracting. Do not use specialized fonts.

When you are using fonts on a website you have more liberty of what you can use. However, don't overwhelm your reader with fonts that are not easy to read or have too many colors and serifs. Use fonts that are Script for highlights or accents. 

Make good use of your fonts. 

At the maximum, use three different fonts
  • Arial
  • Verdana
  • Times New Roman for your body of text

Here are some examples of fonts:

  • Ariel
  • Courier
  • Georgia
  • Helvetica
  • Times
  • Trebuchet
  • Verdana




“Successful websites are like books, they’re not born, they are created. It takes time to outline, flesh it out, critique, proof, and publish. Your website needs the same attention as your book. The Ghoster makes it easy for you.”
