Here is an interesting post from last year about mixing fonts from the Webdesigner Depot blog. The focus of the article is making two fonts work with logos but the same principles apply to any design project, including product labels. What I like about this article is that the author gives many examples of logos with multiple fonts and explains why some work and others don't. The one point to keep in mind when designing product labels is that you will likely have a font that is part of your logo so you want to make sure the fonts you use in the rest of the label design work with the font in your logo. If you are struggling with fonts then the best idea is to hire a professional designer. As I have said on this blog many times, a well designed product label can go a long way towards helping ensure the success of your product. Unless you have a special talent in this area it is better to hire a professional. Hat tip to J.D. Iles from the Signs Never Sleep blog for sharing this information.
