How to Personalize the Font for Your Instagram Name

Today I discovered personalize the font used in my Instagram bio so I thought I’d share it with you! I updated mine in a Bold Cursive style font, and hope it’s still rather legible, and still looks professional.
What do you think?

This kind of reminds me of Myspace when users were able to customize their backgrounds, and then things quickly got out of hand. Let’s hope this doesn’t happen again with changing fonts on Instagram.

So here are the step by step instructions:
1). Go to  while on your phone (makes it easier to copy/paste right into Instagram)
2). Type in the text you want to personalize, i.e. Your name …

3). Once you’ve selected the font you like best, copy your text.
4). Open your Instagram app. Click on the edit profile box in the top right.
5). Paste your new text into the ‘Name’ field, or into the ‘Bio’ section. Viola!

Tip: Use this custom font sparingly! If you create your entire bio in one of these fonts above, it could become difficult to read. Choose what word/s you want to highlight, whether it be your name, a word or a quote.

I’d love to hear from you if you thought this was helpful!
