How many fonts do you have installed on your computer? If you are anything like me, it’s probably a lot! I’ll be honest, when I am working on a project I hate sitting and scrolling through all my installed fonts. Then, I stumbled across a a software program that will print all of your fonts in minutes!

Visit this linkΒ and download the software by Stefan Trost Media. Once you install the software, open the program. On the right hand side, you’ll see a checkbox with the text: “Text written in the font”. In this box, you will want to type whatever text you want to use in your catalog. Then, choose your format. I printed mine, but you can also save as an image or text document. Isn’t that neat?

Note: I searched the website and couldn’t find if it works on Mac or not. I use Windows 10 and it worked perfectly for me. Updated – A Cutting for Business reader says that it doesn’t work for Mac – but click this link to do the same on your Mac. Updated again: This program now works with Mac. Thanks Nancy for keeping me up to date.

      1. i downloaded it and click the export to print, and it prints 1.5 pages and stops. i have 783 fonts, how can i get it to print all of them?

        1. Hi there, I thought I had the same issue so I thought I’d share in case this helps anyone else…
          PrintMyFonts (PMF) showed me that I had over 270 fonts on +/- 19-20 pages. I printed to PDF and then it only previewed the first 2-3 pages (when using my Mac; side note: Windows version had no issue). I knew it showed the full font list earlier in the PMF window so I simply right clicked the saved PDF and opened in Google Chrome where it showed me all 20 pages. Possible just an issue between PMF and Mac’s Preview program.

    1. Purchased versus free are hard to sort out once they are on your computer. Unfortunately, I don’t have a suggestion other than searching each font to see if it’s paid or free.

  1. Thank you so much for this resource. I have like 800 something fonts. My goodness, that was a lot. Thank God for double sided printing.

  2. I was so excited about this, but it prints a page and a half and quits. πŸ™ I have over 1000 fonts. Anyone else had this problem? I’ve tried it from two different computers.

  3. hi- i cannot get this work for the life of me. once downloaded it never gives me the option ” text written in font” do you have any suggestions?
    -thank you

  4. Did you know there is a website that will do this too? Well I’m not sure if you can print but you can got threw and select and filter to help you narrow down your options, I use it all the time, it’s great. Here’s the link
    http://wordmark.it

    1. Hello! Yes, you could use Workmark.it, but it doesn’t print all your fonts. Also, if you have a lot of fonts – they don’t always all load. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Unfortunately for me, it downloaded as a .zip file, and I don’t have the software to un-zip the file to run it. Is there a way to get free software to un-zip something?

    1. DANG Marilyn McAleer, that was a pretty rude comment to make, after all Christine does for us, no matter what the issue, she will try to find an answer, if you had an issue, you should have spoke to her in pm or just quietly walked away….youre loss !!!!

      1. It is what it is, Shirley. There are plenty of people online that wish my blog would disappear. I take it with a grain of salt and remember how many people I’ve helped along the way. Thanks for having my back! πŸ™‚

  6. Do you know about wordmark.it? You can type in your text and it shows you how it will look in all the fonts on your computer. It’s AWESOME! Much better than changing the font to find the right one for a project.

  7. I LOVE that I can have it print a list of fonts I have stored on my computer, not just those installed. Programs work and load so much faster when you limit your installed fonts.

    THIS IS GREAT!

  8. To add to my comment above, you can also change the field for “text written in default font” to include the path where the font file is on your computer. This is VERY helpful if you have your fonts in different folders, for whatever reason. You simply change it to include %filepath%. Hopefully I didn’t confuse anyone.

  9. It printed the text in the font but did not label the font name. That is useless, if I have to scroll through the fonts to determine which font it is. Did I do something wrong?

      1. Normally I can do that but for some reason I can’t with this program. Also, can’t see how many pages it would take to print them all.

  10. Thank you so much for this info. I downloaded, installed, and my printer is humming as I type! πŸ™‚ It is going to be so nice to be able to look at the font already in print, rather than the tiny image on my screen.

  11. YOU ROCK!!!! I can’t even tell you how much TIME this has saved me!!!! And the fact that I can type whatever I want to see a preview is phenomenal! Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!! If I could hug you I would!

  12. I did not try the page you have listed above, trying to keep from adding to my downloads until I get a new laptop… However, I did go to Wordmark.it site and typed in a sentence to show in the different fonts, all of the fonts along with font name came up, then I used the menu button in Google to print/save. I don’t know how many fonts I have but I do know that it is 75 pages worth. I am on a PC. I do not know if this will work with a mac.

  13. Christine, thank you so much for your blog. I have used wordmark.it and that’s great but it would be awesome to have a print out of my fonts. I am going to try this tomorrow I hope! Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the helpful things you post. I have learned a lot from you, (I am new to the silhouette world), and I look forward to learning more from reading your blog.????

  14. Thank you so much!! I went on over to that download from your link and it was so easy to use and worked perfectly for me. I even sent them a small donation and let them know I found out about their app from you.

  15. I used the instructions to print a list of my fonts, however it did not print the fonts in my Cricut design space??? That is really the list I need. Is there a way to do that?

  16. Hi Christine

    Just a quick note to say ‘Thanks’!!! Good ol’ Pinterest sent me your way. This is a very handy little utility.

    cheers
    Sharon

  17. Thank you so much for this tip. I have been trying to do this for myself in word and it is a mammoth task! You have saved my sanity! My only complaint is that I have now found even more fonts that I have downloaded LOL! One can never have too many, Right????

  18. OR….just go to wordmark.it Type in any text and it will show you what it looks like from any installed font on your computer. Plus, you can select your favorites to weed down the choices at that point. No need to re-print your catalog. Easy peasy! πŸ™‚

  19. Thank you for this easy tutorial. I downloaded the app from you link and extracted it. When I tried to open the app a message came up saying Windows Defender stopped the app from opening and it might be a potential threat. I thought I would ask you first before going directly to the programmers. If it is a threat, I wonder if I would get an honest answer. Has anyone had a problem with this file to your knowledge?

  20. Thank you for this link. Its a god send.. A quick question? Is there anyway to print via date installed? I have printed out my list and if I add more fonts to my computer I would only like to print out the new ones and I would hate to waste paper and print out the ones I already have.
    Thank you

  21. Thank you so much! I’ve been wanting something like this for a long time. Worked perfectly on my windows 7. Very glad I was able to print multiple columns per page. THANK YOU!
