What is a Crazy Font Generator?
For the purposes of this guide, crazy fonts are unusual fonts. Therefore, this crazy font generator guide shows you how to make unusual fonts.
Why You Need a Crazy Font Generator
Strange Font Benefits
There are advantages to using strange font styles:
- Teachers engage students.
- Bloggers engage visitors.
- Writers engage readers.
- Social media marketers engage followers.
Fonts Improve Readability
Teachers: Use fonts to engage your students.
I am a teacher as well as a blogger. As a teacher, I know the importance of engaging students.
According to a Gallup poll, students are not just engaged (47%) or disengaged (29%). A third group is actively disengaged (24%).
There are many ways you can use a crazy text generator to engage students. For instance, if you are a Yearbook teacher, you could cover the eyes of the students in the Yearbook and ask readers to guess the student. Type the identity upside down to make the guesswork more challenging and fun.
Next, you want to make sure your writing is clear. Google emphasizes the User Experience. If your writing isn’t clear, you won’t rank well in Google’s Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs) if you are a blogger. If you are a teacher, you won’t improve student achievement with illegible text.

Not all crazy text generators make illegible texts.
Bryan G uses Double Struck to write his name. Even against the white background, you see in the screenshot, his name is legible.
Fonts Add Personality
According to a study published by ResearchGate.net,
“Previous research suggests that different typefaces can be perceived as having distinct personality characteristics (such as strength, elegance, friendliness, romance, and humor) and that these ‘print personalities’ elicit information in the reader that is in addition to the meaning conveyed linguistically by words.”
Fonts Can Attract Your Target Audience
SpyreStudios.com published a connection between the font and the audience you are trying to generate. The article actually called fonts “seductive.”
According to the blog, “You CAN attract the right audience with seductive typography.”
This table shows the connections between the font style and the characteristics of the audience you want to attract.
|Font Style||Characteristics of Target Audience|
|Serif||The target demographic is traditional with a touch of adventure.|
|San Serif||The target audience is interested in marketing, tech, sports, and news among other topics.|
|Script||Due to the variety of script fonts, the target demographic can range from formal to childish and playful.|
The wrong choice of fonts can also convince your target audience not to follow you.
Fonts Boost Branding
According to the CreativeBlog.com,
“It’s the subtle reasoning behind a font choice that plays a big part. A typeface can create emotion (happy or sad?), enhance a theme (past or present?), spark interest (shout or whisper?), add personality (silly or serious?) and even convey trust – all of which is crucial to the launch of a successful project.”
Fonts Boost Engagement
This opinion is controversial. People disagree on the effectiveness of using a crazy font generator to build social media engagement.
A Redditor in a Twitter subreddit strongly disagrees about whether using fonts is effective.
Look at what he wrote:
I disagree with the commenter.
It’s true: Social media sites are crowded. Instagram, for example, has one billion people.
Will using a crazy text generator help you stand out on social media?
I asked social media users from Instagram and Reddit. To my surprise, most respondents answered, “No!”
Here are the results of a poll I conducted in the Instagram subreddit.
One of the Redditors explained why he felt interesting fonts do not result in increased Instagram engagement:
“Why would they?
Fonts? Really? People aren’t little kids amazed by a change in font I’m sure.”
I beg to differ. I maintain using a crazy font generator can boost interest.
Instagram’s RJ Kaur uses unusual fonts in her YouTube videos. I scrolled through her Instagram posts looking for unusual fonts. This caught my eye.
Why? The post has an unusual font.
Should you still use these crazy text generator methods on social media sites?
Yes! Fonts convey personality. Use these methods and tools on social media sites to boost your brand whether or not using a crazy text generator to boost engagement is subject to opinion. Of the 27 people polled (including me), 8 responded “yes,” while 19 responded “no.”

When you go into Instagram Fonts, you are given information about the site.
What I found a turn-off was the multitude of ads that appeared all over the site.
Often, when you use free tools, the price you pay is being subjected to ads.
To access Instagram Fonts, go to https://igfonts.io/.
Go to spellbackwards.com.
You could use your backward text anywhere, even on Twitter in a tweet.
Leonardo da Vinci wrote backwards in a notebook so no one could steal his ideas. This is known as “mirror text” since you need to hold the text up to the mirror to read what the writing says.
Many people want to make a backward 3. Making a backward 3 is easy with this tool.
You could put upside down text in your Facebook status.
For instance, you can show Facebook upside down text.

At Instagram, if you want to make your text animated, click the “A” that looks like it’s in motion, to the left of the word “Done.”
The result: Your text will jump up and down.
BONUS TIP: Jamfoo
As you see, the Jamfoo Crazy Text Generator generates Chat Emoticon Lists, Facebook Chat Codes, and Fancy Text Symbols.
Chat Emoticon Lists show you Facebook Emoticons, Aim Emoticons, Skype Emoticons, and MSN Emoticons.
When I clicked Fancy Text Symbols, I received a pleasant surprise: Smilies.
As someone who can’t recall how to type smilies. This is helpful for me.
Can you remember when to type colons and parentheses? I forget about the colon and the forward slash altogether. Can you see yourself using the smilies this crazy text generator provides? I can.
