How to use different fonts on Instagram

In ourInstagram Guides,” we'll look at Instagram, explain its new and old features, and show you how to get the most out of the platform for your marketing strategy. Today: How you can change fonts in your stories, posts, and bio.

Instagram is one of the user-friendliest platforms out there. And this is no surprise since Instagram is all about optics and aesthetics.

It is therefore quite astonishing that there is no direct option in the Instagram app to customize fonts in your captions, comments, or bio.

Sure, you can at least choose between a few different fonts in your Instagram stories. But that’s it.

If you want to use more than one font on Instagram, you need to rely on third-party tools.

How do you change fonts in your Instagram stories?

But first, we want to talk about your Instagram stories, where you can easily change fonts. There are nine different fonts you can choose from. Here is how to access them:

  1. Open Instagram.
  2. Swipe right or click on your profile picture in the upper left corner to start creating a new story.
  3. Choose what you want to post in your story–a picture, video, or boomerang, etc.
  4. Tap “Aa” in the upper right corner.
  5. Now you can write what you want.
  6. Select one of the nine fonts above your keyboard.
  7. Happy with your text? You can also adjust the size with the scale on the left side, or choose a color, background, or alignment via the upper menu.

Tools that help you change fonts in your posts, comments, and bio

But what about the captions for your Instagram posts, the bio on your profile, or even the comments under pictures and videos?

Unfortunately, you cannot change the fonts for these sections directly on Instagram. But you have a chance to personalize your written content with third-party tools.

Instagram Fonts Generator

There are a lot of tools to generate different fonts for Instagram. You can choose to either use an app or go to a website via the browser on your phone. This way, you can choose from a lot of different fonts. Just insert your text, choose a font, and then copy and paste your text to Instagram.


Another possibility is to use a special keyboard for your smartphone. You can search the Apple App Store or Google Play Store for a font app.

Just download the app and activate the new keyboard in the settings of your phone. Now you can switch between your standard keyboard and the one with your new fonts.

Tips for using different fonts on Instagram

Happy with the new possibilities for fonts on Instagram? Super, but always keep in mind not to overdo it.

Especially for business accounts, it is quite essential not to go overboard because using too much decorative text will make your account look informal and childish. So, be careful to use your new fonts with moderation.

For a consistent appearance on Instagram, it is also helpful to choose fonts that you can use regularly. This helps to increase your content’s recognition value.

Furthermore, you should always choose fonts that have good readability and are not too ornamental.
