 You are curious to find out how designers, developers, and marketers (and probably many others) identify fonts with ease, without spending a cent?

Of course, you are, that is why you clicked on this article.

And I will show you right away.

But before telling you the name of the tool they use, why they use that particular tool and no other, and how you can also use it for free, I want to discuss with you why it is important to know how to identify fonts and how this can help you big time.

A brief history of font identification

 Years ago, font identification was a nightmare.

If you saw a font and you liked it, it was extremely hard to efficiently find out its name, its price and where to get it from.

 You would go on forums, share with others the picture of the font you like, and then ask for help. 

That took days, weeks, and even months.

 And all of that without the certitude that you will find out the correct answer.

On forums, you would have got many different answers.

 The same happened if you discussed with several different graphic designers or font guys.

 So how would you know which is really the font you are looking for?

 You could not be 100% sure.

 So, because of the difficult nature of font identification, people started to abandon this idea.

 And when they needed a new font, they would just search the internet and pick one. They wouldn't tried anymore to identify fonts they saw on websites, T-shirts, buildings, TV ads, and so on.

 This happened up until to a point when font identifiers started to become much more efficient than they were.

 Right that point, people started again to identify fonts, but now with the help of font identification software.

 But these tools weren't working as today and it took a while to become better.
