How to pair it with another font?

The basic rule of font pairing is to choose the opposite look and feel of the first font. Chepalonia font feels much more casual, so we can pair it for more formal fonts. Here are the breakdown:

  1. Choose the different font family
    The best opposite family of this font is Sans or Serif. You can still apply script family but choose the different weight or choose more cursive and have more swirl.
  2. Choose different font weight
    You can pair it with much slimmer font or monoline font (monoline = one single width line)
  3. Choose different text irregularity
    Chepalonia font has more irregularity. So pairing it with regular font will work. Irregularity here means more difference in shape and position of each letter. Another trick is to make the second font uppercase. The uppercase font will make it more regular.
  4. Choose different font width
    Chepalonia font have normal font width. So you can choose narrower font to pair it with.
  5. Choose different letter spacing
    If the first font has normal letter spacing, try to separate each letter more on second text. Tips: On our quote maker app you can choose letter spacing slider to modify its letter spacing.

You can combine above font theory. For example on the header image above I use different font family, different font transform (I mage it uppercase on secondary text),  Use narrower font, and wider letter spacing.

I will write deeper about this font pairing theory. Stay tuned!
