Hello there! Welcome to Float
, a font site run by Lexi (togepwi
). The purpose of Float is to provide you with fonts of your liking. Float offers quality premade fonts and custom made fonts. If you would like to request a font, please head over to the request section.

4:18pm nst - Hiatus! Float is on hiatus. I guess it was kinda obvious with the lack updates, but here it is officially. I am truly sorry for those who did hope for a huge comeback and are disappointed now. At this time, I am not sure when I will be back, or if I can even find the time to come back.
If you have any questions/concerns, please refer to the Questions section
. If you need help with anything and it is not in the Questions
, feel free to mail me
with any concerns you have.
Welcome to the Extras
, where you could find some miscellaneous stuff about Float
. For these extras, there will be a back button
in case you want to go back to the this page. There is also a back button on this page to take you back to the home page of Float. Of course, you could always use the navigation
on this front page if you prefer. Simply click on the headers
to view the page.
My portfolio is an external link
, meaning it will take you to a different page. Anyways, my portfolio is where I will keep track of all my fonts. Some will be premades, some will be requests.
Are you kinda new to fonts? Are you unsure about certain things? I wrote this tiny guide up just in case.
Just a few do's and don'ts when it comes to fonts. Nothing too special.
A Tiny Introduction to Fonts
New to fonts? Not quite sure how to use premade fonts? Well this is the spot to help you.
What are they?
So what exactly is a font?
Yes, fonts are those things to change how your text looks, but on neopets, some might be referring to your neosignature
. This leads to a new question: what is a neosignature?
In simple terms, it's the thing when you post on the neoboards
. When browsing the boards, you may see people posting with colorful text or pictures after their post. Those are the neosignatures.
How Do I Get One?
It seems a lot of people have them, but where do I get one? Where did they get one?
Many people make
their own font, others request
a custom font, and some use premade
ones from sites like this one. If you're lucky enough, you might find a board where someone is willing to make custom fonts
or maybe requests are open on a site. You could also use premade fonts
by going through sites like Float. There are plenty of sites out there.
Some people make
their own fonts. Making a font is sort of like HTML coding. It's not too hard once you memorize a few things. If you are completely new, I suggest starting with a guide to guide to you through it. Of course, sometimes people decide that they are not happy with the font they make, so they turn to premade sites.
Premade fonts are typically displayed on font sites
, like this one. These fonts are displayed for public use. To use, you find a font you like, go to your preferences
, copy/paste the code, and there you go! Remember, if you visit a font site and decide to use their font(s), read their rules, follow them, and respect them
Eventually, some people decide that they can't find a premade font to their liking, so they might request a custom font. There isn't really much to say about custom fonts, so I'll just be leaving it as that. This is it, a little intro to fonts. This doesn't really go in depth, but I hope you enjoyed it. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask
Do's and Don'ts
Here are just some do's and don'ts regarding fonts. You are free to do whatever you want, but these are just a guideline. I will add to this from time to time.
When making a font, do be happy it.
Do have a legible font face. If it's too hard to read, some people might skip over it.
Do read and respect the rules when you visit a font site. They are there for a reason.
Don't have a super bright font. Blinding everyone isn't very nice.
Don't steal other people's fonts. It might put your account at risk.
Don't have offensive things in your font. It is also against the rules, so you will endanger your account.
These are some questions you might have. If you still need help, feel free to mail me
.Can I get your fonts rated?
Yes, just add in somewhere it was a premade or something along the lines as that.
Can I edit your fonts?
Yes, you can. Edit it to however you want, but you may not claim you created the entire font.
When will requests be open?
Requests will be open for the first 10 days of every month.
I messed up my form for my request! I really do want a font though. What should I do?
If you made a mistake in your form, just send me a new request form. Send the new one with the same title, form, etc. but when you get to the part where it says 'Anything else I should know:' just say you made a mistake in your previous form. However,
if you made a mistake in your neomail because you missed something in the rules, then I will reject your request. I will also inform you that I will not take your request(s) until 7 days.
What is a NB pen and what does it stand for?
A NB pen, short for Neoboard Pen/Green Neoboard pen. It is an item in the NC mall that can be bought for 300nc. Many font makers value this item because it gives more space to make fonts. Even without NB pens, you can still make lots of creative fonts, so don't feel like it is required when making fonts.
Can you please teach me to make fonts?
I won't really be able to teach
you, but if you have some questions about how to make a font, I might be able to answer them.
What is alt+255?
Alt+255 makes a space. Just a space. I use it in most picture fonts to align everything. It is very useful to me and probably many other font makers. However, they aren't pasteable so if you use a picture font, sometimes it won't work well if you don't use alt+255 for a space.
NOTE: you will need a number pad for alt+255.
Alt+255 demonstration:What if I don't have a number pad?
There is an alternative to alt+255 that serves the same function and does not require a number pad. My laptop already has a number pad, but I know that many other laptops do not. If I remember correctly, all you need to do is press the number lock button on your computer, which is usually on the top. Then, you hold on to alt and press letter k, then i, and then another i and then let go of the alt key. The k is the number 2 during number lock, and letter i is number 5. So, it is alt+kii (with number lock). Remember to press the number lock button again after using alt+kii so there aren't any problems when typing afterwards. For macs, I think option+space works.FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THESE SPACES, CHECK OUT ISAAC'S GUIDE.
All the premade ones are too bleh for you? You can request a custom font here! Be sure to read how it works and the rules before requesting.
How It Works
For every month, requests will be open
for the first 10 days.
After that, requests will be closed
for the rest of the month
unless I state otherwise. While requests are open, there is no limit as to how many requests I take. Just be sure to read the rules and notes!
Rules and Notes
Please read the Rules and Notes
thoroughly and recheck your form before sending your request.
The rules for the premades still apply. So no taking credit, redistributing, etc.
Please be specific when requesting. I will not take requests that just has things like "i want a blue name font" because I'll still have no idea what you want exactly. Be picky! I don't mind at all.
If you would like to request more than one font, please send multiple neomails.
Use the form.
If you made it this far, make the subject/title of your neomail 'Floating in the Air'. If you made a mistake with this rule, I'm sorry, but please do not request for another 7 days.
I make fonts for anything. You want a picture font? You want a font that includes your favorite song? You want a font to advertise your site? Yes, yes, and yes.
After you send in your form, you will get a response regarding whether or not I accept your request. You will also get another neomail when your font is ready to pick up.
If you are not satisfied with your font, please tell me and I will try my best to fix it.
I go by a first come first serve basis.
Note: If you request a picture font, you will need alt+255. More information on that on Isaac's guide
Click here to mail me!
After you request, you will be on the waiting list! I will neomail you after I have finished your font.
If you have questions regarding this, do not be afraid to ask!
