Lorem Ipsum Generators: 10 Ways To Make Your Dummy Text More Fun

“Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit … “

If that’s all Greek to you, then don’t worry, it’s supposed to be. Taken from Cicero’s De Finibus Bonorum et Malorum, then altered to make zero sense, “Lorem Ipsum” is the most commonly used dummy text in the design field.

However, if you’re fed up seeing the faux Latin nonsense, we’ve found more than 30 placeholder text generators that offer something a little different — from cult movie references to classic novels to bacon. Mmmmm, bacon.

Take a look through the gallery below to discover some fun options next time you’re greeking. Let us know in the comments about any we’ve missed that you like to use.

1. Fillerati

This good-looking literary service offers passages of text from great authors like Lewis Carroll, Jules Verne and H.G. Wells.

2. Cameron Creative

Although different, Cameron Creative’s online tools offer a few useful options. Cut and paste a block of binary code that appears like a realistic “terms and conditions” text, should you need to fill up such a section on a website.

3. Bacon Ipsum

Pig out with graphs composed of “all meat” or “meat and filler” text.

4. Malevole Text Generator

A bizarre and random mix of TV show theme lyrics make up the filler text generated by this Malevole option.

5. Greeking Machine

The Greeking Machine offers a range of dummy text. In addition to classical Latin, languages include hillbilly, marketing, The Matrix, Metropolitan, pseudo German and our fave — techno babble.

6. Gangsta Lorem Ipsum

A block of “gangsta” text for when your design needs some extra shizzle, innit.

7. The Postmodernism Generator

If you need an essay-type format, then the Postmodernism generator has you covered with several essays of plausible-looking post-modernist nonsense.

8. Vegan Ipsum

If Bacon Ipsum is just too meaty for you, the same team offers a vegan version. Generate one to five graphs of veggie text. And, if you’re really gung-ho for going green, there’s also Veggie Ipsum to check out too.

9. Blind Text Generator

Alongside more traditional placeholder texts, the Blind Text Generator will spice things up for you with “Kafka,” “Werther,” “Pangram” and more.

10. Fillerama

Perfect for impressing your contemporary clients, Fillerama will cover your blank space with phrases from Futurama, The Simpsons, Star Wars, Dexter, Doctor Who and Monty Python.

BONUS: Adhesion Text

We’ve bonus-ified this offering as it’s a little unusual, but could be just the ticket for certain projects. Adhesion Text creates words based on the letters you enter.
