Fancy numbers can be used to add a sophisticated touch to invitations, letterheads or any other typographic material. These numbers can also be used as a part of website images or as a personal font preference in many word processing programs. Fancy numbers are often included as part of ornate decorative font packs, many of which can be downloaded free. To create these fancy numbers, you must have these fonts installed on your computer.
