This font tracker template will help you, well, organize your fonts so you can see them at a glance. If you have a lot of fonts, updating this tracker will take a couple of hours but it will be so worth it. If you've just started collecting fonts, now's a good time to grab this free Notion template and organize your fonts!

When I was younger, I enjoyed using decorative fonts like Impact Label and Earwig Factory in the late 90s-early 2000s for my school paper cover pages. Back then, there wasn't the (what feels like) hundreds of thousands options for free fonts available. 

Making my the cover of my papers resemble 70s horror movie ransom letters was cool to my pre-teen brain.

Technology has improved by leaps and bounds in the last few decades. Now, everyone knows what a font is and most people have favorite fonts!

As a digital sticker creator, my style definitely includes type. So you can probably imagine: I have a LOT of fonts. Obviously, I have to organize them! 

If you're stumped or overwhelmed with your own font collection, here's a tutorial on how I organize my fonts along with inmidnights FREE Font Tracker Notion Template. Hopefully it'll help you too! 

How To Organize Fonts 

  • Add Visuals. Use image previews of the font. This makes it easier for you to see what you have and to visualize what will match with your digital planner spread. 
  • Add category filters. Sorting by category will make it so much easier for you. The two essential categories are:
    • Type. Font types are Serif, Sans Serif, Script, Decorative, etc. In this Free Notion Font Template, I've added Handwritten as well since digital planners love handwritten fonts. You can add more font types like Slab Serif, etc depending on your needs.

    • Usage Rights. Not all fonts are for commercial use! I personally only purchase commercial use fonts so I don't have this category on my personal font organizer file, but the Free Font Organizer Notion Template I've created includes a Usage Rights category for you. I've also added a very quick explanation at the bottom dropdown about usage rights.

  • Add additional categories as you see fit. As a creator, I like to keep track of font inclusions. Does it include special characters? Does it have Ligatures? Does it have Alternates? 
  • Creator. Adding the font creator helps when someone asks you where the font came from, so you can easily refer them to the creator. It is so important to support our art community and being able to give the name of the original creator/artist is super a simple way to do it. Not only that, it also makes it much easier for you to look them up later if you feel like getting more fonts!
  • Download Link. Same reason as adding the creator! 
  • Add a favorite checkbox. An optional column, but this comes in handy if you have a lot of fonts and can't remember the font name of your favorite/s. I've added this in the font tracker template. 
Using the tips I've shared above, I made a free Notion template that you can use to organize your own fonts!
