Next we can add the Title Text to the flyer. For the Computer Classes Flyer Title and Subtitles, the Font used is Black Rose by Bright Ideas.

The remaining Text on the Flyer uses the Desyrel Font by Apostrophic Labs. Both Fonts were downloaded from Fontsquirrel.

For a newly downloaded Font to be usable on your machine, you must first install it. Any Font installed while Inkscape is open, will not be visible in the Font List. To correct this, you must first restart the Inkscape Program after Font(s) Installation. For more information on Fonts and how to properly install them, visit the FlyerTutor Blog.



Step 09: Insert Text

To insert the Text, go to the Tool Box and select the Text Tool.
