i like school bell
I'm a Comic Sans person... *hides* I honestly don't make much handouts myself. I use it for more decorative purposes or letters home. Otherwise I stick with Arial or Calibri.
Nothing wrong with Comic Sans! It's used so much because it is easy for students to read, which is a great reason for using a font.
BTW: Chiller is a great one for Halloween, or any other creepy occasion.
My goodness. I never thought about fonts enough to feel such passion about them. I use comic sans for just about everything. Sorry.
I am surprised to see that everyone is saying Comic Sans is easy to read... any research I've heard about has actually claimed the exact opposite...
I have a Mac and have downloaded some from daFont. I have a theme I use this year on all my documents. Type Key and Type Key Black for all titles. American Typewriter for the body. Then there is a Callie Hand for Header 2.
I used to use Calibri for a lot of things.
Anyone seen this Comic Sans parody?
crud. that didn't work because it has a curse word. google McSweenys Comic Sans and it will come up.
edit: seeing if I link it, if it will work
At work I use Kuckoo.
I searched it and I almost died!
I use Comic sans for the state standards that have to be posted on the wall. I use Zombified for my motivational posters.

I like to use Comic Sans, Times New Roman, and Century Gothic.
Dk crayon crumble and KG Ten thousand Reasons can both be downloaded for free online, and they're pretty great. I used them a lot in more virtual environment settings (write with them in white on a chalkboard background, and it looks a lot like nice chalk handwriting), but they can be fun in just about any setting.
I've heard the same thing.
I find Comic Sans unbearable, to the point of rage-inducing. While there could be some benefit to elementary teachers (particular with the Comic Sans a), I just don't personally care for it. Since I'm not an elementary teacher, I can avoid it completely.
I hate Calibri - it just grates on me. I do love Arial. Nice clean lines and easy to read.
