Super Fun Lorem Ipsum Alternative Text Generators for Your Project Mockups

Lorem Ipsum text refers to the placeholder text that is often used in project mockups for design, whether that’s a brochure design, a website design, or even the layout for what will become a PDF report. Pasting in some Lorem Ipsum content to the design helps your clients to visualize what the final project might look like once it’s all filled in with their own content.

But just because you’re using dummy text doesn’t mean it has to be boring. It doesn’t even have to be the standard Latin Lorem Ipsum. It just needs to do two things; 1) act as a placeholder until the real text is ready and 2) help the client visualize the project so you can move forward on it.

You’re a fun and interesting person, so let’s look at some fun and interesting Lorem Ipsum text generators to help you out with those project mockups so you can dare to be different and make your project proposal stand out from the crowd a bit. All of these text generators can provide you with customized options for length and number of paragraphs. Get in there and have some fun experimenting with the different options.

Note: A few of these have some salty language and swear words in them.

I don’t like most people. He’s in the vast majority. You shouldn’t like things because people tell you you’re supposed to. You’re pretty cute, you know that? Bitchin.’ You are such a nerd.

Batman Ipsum

If you’re working on a dark and ominous project, this is the Ipsum for you.

Every man who has lotted here over the centuries, has looked up to the light and imagined climbing to freedom. So easy, so simple! And like shipwrecked men turning to seawater foregoing uncontrollable thirst, many have died trying. And then here there can be no true despair without hope. You can watch me torture an entire city. And then when you’ve truly understood the depth of your failure, we will fulfill Ra’s Al Ghul’s destiny. We will destroy Gotham. And then, when that is done, and Gotham is… ashes Then you have my permission to die.

The Doctor is quoted almost daily in my house, so I think this one is my personal favorite. It’s definitely the one I use the most. Pick your favorite Doctor or Multi-Doctor. Thirteen hasn’t been added yet, but I’m hoping she will be added to the mix eventually.

Come along, Pond. Look at me. No plans, no backup, no weapons worth a damn. Oh, and something else I don’t have: anything to lose. So, if you’re sitting up there with your silly little spaceships and your silly little guns and you’ve any plans on taking the Pandorica tonight; just remember who’s standing in your way. Overconfidence, this, and a small screwdriver. I’m absolutely sorted. No idea. Just do what I do: hold tight and pretend it’s a plan. Have a jelly baby.

Bob Ross Lipsum

Who doesn’t love Bob Ross? Your placeholder text will be happy and beautiful when you use this text generator. This is my second favorite ipsum, using it just brightens your day.

We don’t make mistakes we just have happy little accidents. Happy painting, God bless. Every single thing in the world has its own personality — and it is up to you to make friends with the little rascals. I’m gonna add just a tiny little amount of Prussian Blue. Almost everything is going to happen for you automatically — you don’t have to spend any time working or worrying.
Mountains are so simple, they’re hard. Isn’t that fantastic that you can make whole mountains in minutes? You have to make these big decisions. Don’t be afraid to make these big decisions.

Metaphor Ipsum

This one can actually be really fun to read.

To be more specific, a workshop is a wash’s chess. The zeitgeist contends that authors often misinterpret the grease as a tonguelike panther, when in actuality it feels more like a squashy makeup. A ptarmigan of the digger is assumed to be a ruthless ice. We can assume that any instance of a chimpanzee can be construed as a pally curtain.

Forcem Ipsum

Star Wars themed Lorem Ipsum generator. I’ve used this one, but I sort of felt it wasn’t quote-y enough to be fully Star Wars geek worthy. It’s mostly just paragraphs straight out of the scripts for the original trilogy, not quite as fun as I’d hoped. I prefer the Fillerama generator mentioned above for Star Wars themed ipsum text.

Greetings, Exalted One. Allow me to introduce myself. I am Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight and friend to Captain Solo. I know that you are powerful, mighty Jabba, and that your anger with Solo must be equally powerful. I seek an audience with Your Greatness to bargain for Solo’s life. With your wisdom, I’m sure that we can work out an arrangement which will be mutually beneficial and enable us to avoid any unpleasant confrontation. As a token of my goodwill, I present to you a gift: these two droids. What did he say? Both are hardworking and will serve you well.

The level of perceived sharpness is referred to as acidity by sommeliers, or “tartness” by drunks. A mommy needs more wine than adolescents. Intense hatred of wine is called oenophobia.

Lorem Fucking Ipsum

This one is all full of F-bombs, so might not be appropriate for client projects, depending on the client. In certain cases, it might just be perfect.

Sometimes it is appropriate to place various typographic elements on the outside of the fucking left margin of text to maintain a strong vertical axis. This practice is referred to as exdenting and is most often used with bullets and quotations. Dedicate yourself to lifelong fucking learning. You won’t get good at anything by doing it a lot fucking aimlessly. Respect your fucking craft. What’s important is the fucking drive to see a project through no matter what.
