How many times have you wanted to create a meme but struggling to figure out the appropriate font for it? All the time. Sounds about right.

Choosing the right font for a meme can be time-consuming because the font is an important part of the overall message and tone of the meme. The font can affect the readability and legibility of the text, as well as the overall aesthetic of the meme. Additionally, some memes may require custom or unique fonts that are not widely available, which can also add to the time it takes to find the perfect font.

Here are some options on the fonts you can use for your memes along with best practices of how to use them

Usage: Impact can be used on top of the image or above/below it. For best fit, use it against a black background with white text font and black borders. A mild shadow can also be added. Impact can be used in ALL CAPS or Title Case
