    Marvin, if I understand your requirement correctly, you wish that your users enter their desired customized text for every item that they are purchasing from you.

    I believe that we can achieve this by creating a Text Box field for each of the products where you want your users to provide their customized text, and then use Conditional Logic to show these fields when their products are selected.

    We can also add a field for selection of each font style for each of the custom text, by adding a separate field and using conditions to show multiple fields - to display both the font selection as well as the custom text field when a product is selected:

    You can also make these fields required, so that once the field for custom text is shown, a custom text must be entered by your customers.

    You can see a demo form with such show/hide conditions applied, here:

    I hope this answers your query, but if I have misunderstood your requirement, please do let us know about it in a little more detail, and we will be happy to look for possible way for achieving it. Thank you.
