The closest answer to the question is Fonts. Why? It’s because it is worthy to note that there is still an ongoing debate as to what “Times New Roman”, “Comic Sans”, “Calibri”, etc. should be called. Should it be Typeface or Font? While it may be true that font and typeface are used interchangeably today, it is still just fitting to say that Times New Roman, Comic Sans, Calibri, Garamond, etc. are called TYPEFACE.

However, when me use the term Times New Roman Bold Size 12, then that is the only time we can call such thing as a font. When you go to Microsoft Word, you will be prompted to choose a font because, after all, you are going to use a specific weight and size of a typeface.
