Recommended Posts

DonCachopo

Hi. I´m trying to create a business card in chinese. Most of my fonts don´t support chinese characters.

Can anyone suggest me an elegant font that supports chinese?

Thanks!

I don't know about elegant fonts, perhaps look into Hoffman's threads.

You will be using different fonts for the Chinese and latin characters text?

Are able to type chinese characters? what I mean is have you enabled the Asian language support on your computer. Once you have done this you can find lots of TT chinese fonts for free on line and also pay for some which you can then use in Word or any other program that supports TT fonts.

 

You can then use the Microsoft input method for characters and type characters.

Personally I like a brush script xingkai 毛笔行楷 font.  行楷 is close enough to standard 楷书 that it is easily unstandable, yet artistically stands out from the standard 楷书 font.  A brush script font is much more elegant than a pen script font.
 
An example:  (These are *not* free for commercial use, and use on a business card is commercial use)

What sort of business are you in? This would determine the style you'd want.

 

Serif: 方正雅宋 series.

Sans-serif: 方正蘭亭黑 series.

Regular script: 華文楷體.
