5 fonts you really shouldn’t use in print design

From the many thousands of fonts  there are available most graphic designers are generally agreed on which fonts not to use.

They are:

Curlz – (or any font remotely like it) unless you are 7 years old or under.

Arial – use Helvetica instead. Microsoft tampered with Helvetica and came up with Arial.

Papyrus – are you really pretending to be an ancient Egyptian?

Comic Sans – it’s not such a bad font but there are better ones!

Brush Script – this is more a personal hate. There are so many others that you can use!

I was going to upload an image with these fonts…but I can’t find a copy of all of them on my computer – anywhere. Perhaps that says it all.
