Usage of tput command

I need to do some formatting on the output generated by my script.
For example
echo "Output of df -k" #this should be displayed in bold and the output of df -k should be displayes as normal.

I know that I should use tput bold but this command is also making the output of df -k to be bold.

Any advice on this ....

tput smso will give a reverse video effect.
tput bold must work.
