Windows PC Issues- Solving IT Problems Made Easy

Human beings have been endowed with great labor skills and brainpower which is how they have been able to sustain for a long period of time on this planet and have been behind some of the greatest inventions known to mankind that have made the world a much better place to live in.

One such great invention is the computer, which came into existence around the mid 20th century so as to make problem solving much easier and considerably reduce the burden of physical labor on men who were tiring it out for hours together in office.

The credit for discovering this machine goes to Charles Babbage, known universally as the ‘Father of Computer’, who has done a huge favor to modern mankind by solving many problems at the same time and the internet revolution in the 1980s made things even better.

Font Guide for Typefaces You Need: Slab Serifs

What It Means

A slab serif typeface is a desktop publishing must-have in the same way that real butter is a cooking must-have: You certainly could get along with it, but things just wouldn’t be as tasty

In contrast to the serif fonts (such as Times New Roman) and the sans serif fonts (such as Arial), the slab serif offers a bold and fascinating hybrid. Its stems have feet (smaller counter-strokes at the ends of a letterform’s major strokes), but the feet are relatively thick and blunt as opposed to the infinite variety of curved, arched, rounded, or pointed feet of traditional serif fonts. These typefaces offer contrast and variety; they draw attention; they bring an incredible air of unseen quality; and, when well selected and placed, they can distinguish the projects of persons with good design intuition.

Slabs run the gamut from Western-style playbill lettering to pre-electric calligraphy fonts. All the variations make for a great chance for individuals to distinguish themselves from the crowd by using a truly unique typeface.

What It’s For

Being known as bold and blunt, the slab serif faces are rarely used for long blocks of running text. Usually, these fonts find themselves adding panache to posters and flair to flyers; they make very noticeable and unique headings. However, there is the occasional lighter-weight slab that finds its way into running text such as in newspaper articles or correspondence.

But who cares about the esoteric worlds of design and publishing? How are you going to get any use out of a slab serif typeface? Well, these fonts look great on invitations, on posters, and in school or work presentations, when used in tasteful moderation. If you have a blog or website for yourself, your business, or your family, these are the kinds of typefaces you can use to add a je ne sais quoi that will set your pages apart. Best of all, these sturdy faces hold up well in professional stationary and on resumes and become truly distinguishing features in an increasingly monotonous sea of business ephemera.

Best Free Fonts

When browsing around for free fonts, DaFont.com offers a convenient, one-stop clearinghouse. All the free fonts I mention can be found there; browsing their selection of Western fonts also yields an interesting selection of heavier slab serif fonts.

One slender face that does well in blocks of running text, Niland is simple and pleasant. Just Old Fashion is playful and would look amazing on informal invitations, for example. Fette Egyptienne brings the thick, bold slabs and weighty strokes that are most often associated with these faces, but nothing beats the sheer magnitude and width of Acknowledgement. Both are undoubtedly eye-catching and lend themselves to imaginative uses.

Best Non-Free Fonts

Chaparral, Rockwell, and Clarendon are some of the most commonly used slab serifs and are a great place to start, especially since Chaparral is often already installed on your PC or Mac.

A quick note on how to download and install fonts

Downloadable free fonts usually come packaged in a ZIP file. Save this to a folder you will remember. Open the file, and drag the TrueType or Open Type files out. If you’re using a Mac, double click the files and click “Install Font.” If you’re using a PC, open the Control Panel, open Fonts, click File gt; Install New Font, then browse the directory. Find the folder with your typefaces, select the fonts you want to install and click “Install”. Remember to check the readme or .txt files with the face to ensure that your use will comply with the creator’s wishes.
