  • calendar Last Updated

Fonts are a great way to change up your bio, posts, or comments on your Instagram account. They often draw attention to your readers who may be just scrolling by. There are several fun and interesting Instagram fonts that can fit almost any occasion. Find one that fits well with whatever you are trying to accomplish. For example, if you’re doing a sports account, find a sporty design.

With Instagram font options are limited on the app itself, you can find a huge range of different fonts on online generators. You can easily conduct a simple font change. All you have to do is copy and paste the custom font into your Instagram caption.

In this article, we discuss how to change your Instagram bio font on both your desktop and your mobile device. Either way, you will need a third-party app or website that acts as an Instagram font generator. 


Best Instagram Font Generator

You will need to use an Instagram font generator in order to find custom Instagram fonts for your stories. Some of the sites you can use are as follows:

  1. LingoJam

    With LingoJam, all you need to do is type in the text for your post or your Instagram profile. Once you have typed what you want to post, all you have to do is scroll through the available Insta fonts and choose the one wish to use.

    Not only are there several interesting fonts on LingoJam, but some also have cool symbols and Unicode characters which you can use as part of that font or copy and paste separately. Punctuation marks are also included as you type them out.

    The platform also allows you to upload custom fonts that you can use to create your Instagram captions or bio. Whether you take your time to make exactly what you want or you quickly customize special characters, you can use new fonts to maximize your overall Instagram strategy.

How to Change Your Instagram Bio Font on Desktop

Regardless of the Instagram font generator you choose, they all work basically the same. There will be a pane where you put in your desired text, and then there is a pane where you can scroll amongst all the different fonts until you find one you like. For example, we will look at the steps to using InstaFonts:

  1. Step 1

    Visit the InstaFonts website. 

  2. Step 2

    Find where it says “Type or paste some text here…” and click it.

  3. Step 3

    Type in or paste in your text. 

  4. Step 4

    Scroll down below until you find the font you prefer.

  5. Step 5

    Highlight your favorite font and copy either by right-clicking your highlighted text and then clicking “copy” or by highlighting your desired font, tapping “ctrl” and “c” on your keyboard. 

  6. Step 6

    Log into your account on the Instagram app.

  7. Step 7

    Go to your profile picture which should be located at the top right of your screen, click it, then click “profile.”

  8. Step 8

    Click the “edit profile” button.

  9. Step 9

  10. Step 10

    Paste your copied text into the box by either right-clicking and then clicking “paste” or by pressing “ctrl” and “v” on your keyboard into the box.

  11. Step 11

    Make sure you hit “submit” at the bottom of your Instagram page and it will save your work. 

    However, you will want to keep in mind that though a lot of fonts are accepted on Instagram, not all fonts will work with either Instagram stories or your Instagram bio. If the font you’ve chosen just isn’t working, keep trying new fonts until you find one that does.
