All About Fonts

A Font is a collection of characters of a single size and style belonging to a particular Typeface family.

What is the Difference Between Fonts and Typefaces

At a technical level, the words ‘font’ and ‘typeface’ do have distinct meanings and – depending on the context.

A typeface is the collective name of a family of related fonts (such as Times New Roman), while fonts refer to the weights, widths, and styles that constitute a typeface (such as Times New Roman Regular, Italic, Bold, etc.). … In most instances when people refer to fonts, they really mean typefaces.

Fonts and Typefaces

What are TTF and OTF Fonts?

OTF and TTF are extensions that are used to indicate that the file is a font, which can be used in formatting the documents for printing. TTF stands for TrueType Font, a relatively older font, while OTF stands for OpenType Font, which was based in part on the TrueType standard.

TTF or True Type Fonts – TTF file is a font file format developed by Apple and Microsoft in the late 1980s as a competitor to Adobe’s Type 1 fonts used in PostScript. It used on both Windows and Macintosh platforms. It can be resized to any size without losing quality and looks the same when printed as it does on the screen. The TrueType font is the most common font format used by both Mac OS X and Windows platforms.

OTF or Open Type Fonts – OTF is more likely to be a “better” font, as it supports more advanced typesetting features.

Different Types of Fonts

Serif Fonts

The small features on the ends of strokes in some fonts are known as “Serifs.” Some common Serif typefaces are Times New Roman, Georgia, Palatino and Garamond.

Sans Serif Fonts

In typography and lettering, a sans-serif, sans serif, gothic, or simply sans letterform is one that does not have extending features called “serifs” at the end of strokes. Sans-serif fonts tend to have less stroke width variation than serif fonts.
