5 Best Free Lorem Ipsum Generators for your Design Project

Every designer on the planet will be familiar with the words ‘Lorem Ipsum’. It’s the most popular dummy text to use when you want to populate your design with copy. It helps bring your mockup to life and demonstrates elements such as font, typography and layout before your work has been touched by a copywriter. Lorem Ipsum has been in use since the 1500s, when an early printer used scrambled text to type set a sample book. Remarkably, it has survived the leap from the printing press to the digital age and remains essentially unchanged to this day. Here is a look at the five best places to find free online generators for your work.

Lipsum.com

By far the most popular resource – and in many ways the most reliable – is Lipsum.com. Lots of generators out there offer variations on passages of Lorem Ipsum injecting humour, randomised words or embarrassing jokes that could break the professional appearance of your design.  Lipsum.com offers free of charge text that’s free from repetition, forced humour and made-up words taken from a dictionary of over 200 genuine Latin words and phrases.
