I don’t have to tell you twice that selecting a typeface for your headlines and headers is important. Choosing the right typeface can really make your text stand out. A good display typeface can change the entire look and feel of a document or a website. With the implementation of Google fonts and @fontface, websites can now have rich, exciting typographic experiences as well, all with free bold fonts.

Whether it is on a printed document or a website, most readers scan large bodies of text so that they can get the general information that they need quickly and easily. The headers of each section are the what lets the reader know that a new section of content is starting. These fonts are mainly for display purposes, and should not be used as long body copy.
