The best font identifiers can really help you out when you spot a font that you just know will come in handy for a project you're working on. They can save you from searching through screen after screen of your favourite font supplier’s site, or flicking through catalogue after catalogue.

Whether you’re creating labels for a new gin distillery, a website for a marketing agency, or creating your own merchandise, the right fonts will help give your designs the unique quality you and your clients are looking for. That’s why so many graphic designers are font hungry. We fill our bookshelves with print samples, and we’re constantly snapping signage on our smartphones.
