Instagram Fonts: How To Customize Instagram Fonts To Fancy Looking Fonts

October 31, 2020 | 0 min read

You might have stumbled on an influencer, business, or even your friend’s Instagram account that had the bio written in a very fancy font, only to leave you wondering “how do they do it?” You might have tried copy-pasting text from one site and posted it into your bio or for your post captions – only to fail eventually. However, the good news here is, it is very easy to change fonts on Instagram. In fact, with most font generators, it is just a two-step process!

However, before we get to the dissection of how to do it, let us first understand why you need to pay enough attention to your Instagram fonts.

Instagram is one of the most-visited and loved Social Media platforms available today. The engagement and captivity on all other Social Media platforms, including Facebook, seem to go down time and again. However, Instagram remains the only platform that only sees more and more influx of users, if not the most. Instagram is most liked not only by bloggers but is also the most preferred account of designers and artists. A fancy Instagram bio or caption font, in such a huge pool of people, is sure to get one noticed and stand out.

However, while you are at the thought of using a fancy account, you also potentially run the risk of having your account look rather kiddush and amateur. Hence, you need to ensure that you pick a fancy font- but not a funny or a going-too-overboard font.

You could also visit some famous Instagram accounts or visit blogs to include in your research on what could be the most subtle, relevant yet fancy fonts to pick from. You would also have noticed a lot of Instagram accounts with absolutely random emojis at the end of captions for Instagram bios. Do not misread them! They have been put there on purpose, to add some personality, and to break up the monotony of letters/words alone.

Choosing a font that is all-screen and screen reader-friendly

While attempting to use fancy fonts for your Instagram bio and captions, one also needs to remember that the Instagram bio supports only Unicode characters. Without getting into too much detail on Unicode characters, the point to convey here is that some fonts run the cancer of not being Unicode characters. That essentially means that such fonts might not be readable across screens and most definitely not be accessible for the people who use screen readers.

Hence, you should either run a test to ensure your font is accessible by screen readers; or for the best, it is recommended to use fonts only on perhaps, your name or for a short description instead of the entire bio for an Instagram caption.

A win-win recipe for the best Instagram bio

A good-looking font is not the only thing one needs for the best Instagram bio. The best Instagram bio would perhaps be the one that is well-articulated in an edgy (nut not too much) font. Try and keep your bio compelling, mysterious, short, peppy, and sweet. Use well-thought attractive words instead of making it too long. Ideally, an Instagram bio should not be more than two lines. Hey, hey no one wants to read your life history on your Instagram bio!
