5 Ways to Use Dingbat Fonts

Combine Dingbat Fonts

Combine two dingbat fonts into a single image.

Combine one simple image with another, related dingbat character to reinforce the message. Mix one or more dingbat fonts to create all new graphic images for illustrations and logos.


  • As seen in the example graphic, one icon can become a backdrop for another. This works best if there is adequate contrast in color or value between the two dingbats.
  • You can also use the combine and weld commands (may go by other names in different software) to create new, complex shapes out of two or more individual dingbats. Note that by combining the dingbats in this way you are creating a new object.
