Next we can start adding text to the Flyer.
For the Fall Fest Title, the Font used is Kingthings Annex by Kevin King, which was downloaded from FontFreak.
I picked this Font especially because of all the foliage that comes with it, going well with the theme of the Flyer - Fall. If you want to view more of Kevin King's Free Fonts check out his website at KingthingsFonts.
(Note 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.)
Ok, let's begin. To insert Text, go down to the Drawing Toolbar and select the Text Icon.
Then click the area on the Flyer where you would like to place the Text, in this case the top, and type the word "Fall".
Double click to Select the Text, then go up to the Text Formatting Toolbar and select the down arrow on the Font Name Box ( the first box ) and select Kingthings Annex. In the next box to the right, (the Font Size Box) set the Font Size to 110. Repeat these steps for the word "Fest". Both words have to go in separate Text Boxes, since it seems this is the only way to have different Font Colors in the Title.
Next we'll change the Color of the Text. First we need to create 2 New Custom Colors.
Go up to the Format Menu and select Area, which will reopen the Area Window. Go back to the Colors Tab and add the Color "Fall Green" with R at 68, G at 85, and B at 0.
Then add the Color "Fest Gold" with R at 212, G at 170, and B at 0.
Next, double click on the word "Fall" then go up to the Text Formatting Bar and click on the Down Arrow on the right side of the Font Color Icon
to reveal a Color Window.
Move the mouse over the last row of Colors to reveal each Color's Name.
Select the "Fall Green" Color.
The "Fall" text will look like this:
Repeat these steps to apply color to the "Fest" text. The Color when applied will look like this:
Again, for easier movement of the Title, it will now be best to Group both words. Select both words and repeat the steps for Grouping.
Now to add the remaining text. Originally, when I first did this Fall Fest Flyer (years ago), I downloaded a Font called Segoe Print from FontFreak.com and it was Freeware at the time.
Now it no longer is available there, seems you have to purchase it for both personal and commericial purposes. Unless you have Windows Vista or Windows 7 running on your machine or you use Microsoft Office 2007 or Microsoft Office 2010. Seems these fonts are now bundled with these programs.
So for those of you without any of these, you'll have to find a free Font that goes well with this Flyer. Again, check out FontFreak.com and verify that you can use a Font by checking its License.
OK, back to the Font. Set the "Saturday" text to "Segoe Print", Size 30, Centered and Bold.
To Center the text, select all, then click on the Centered Icon
on the Text Formatting Toolbar.
To make Bold, click on the Bold Icon.
Move your text into place.
The "Craft" text is "Segoe Print", Size 36, Aligned Left and Bold. Again move the text into the proper position on the Flyer.
The "Children" text is "Segoe Print", Size 24 and Centered.
The "Address" text is "Segoe Print", Size 18 and Aligned Left. Move into position above the Orange Colored Bar making the Bar the background for the Text.
