Sure, we get a lot of emails about paint colors, hardware finishes and even questions about Disney World here and there. But we also get a decent number of questions about is the fonts we use here on the blog. Being a graphic designer by trade, I am a total font addict! With hundreds of fonts on my computer, there are a handful of them that I constantly find myself going back to. The best part? They’re FREE! Who doesn’t love free?! So, without further ado, here’s a collection of 20 of my favorite fonts:
1. St Marie 2. Champagne & Limousines 3. Lavanderia 4. Museo Slab 500
5. Mailart Rubberstamp 6. Code Light 7. Marcelle 8. Simply Glamorous
9. Scribblebox 10. Peach Sundress 11. Blanch 12. Villa Didot 13. American Typewriter
14. Bready 15. Walkway Semibold 16. Airplane 17. Print Clearly 18. Sail
19. Matilde 20. Petie Boy
So, how about you? What’s your go-to font? If you have a favorite, share the link in the comments section! I’m always looking for more to add to the collection. : )
** Some of the fonts listed ask for a donation of $5 or more. However, if you type in “0”, then click “download”, you can still download the font for FREE for personal use. If you plan on using them on your monetized blog or something like an Etsy store, make sure you read all of the guidelines before doing so.
**Installing Fonts: If you need help installing fonts, here’s a great (and easy!) tutorial on how to install fonts on a Mac: here. Just in case anyone needs a PC version, check out this tutorial: here. There’s a bunch of different ways to install fonts on a Mac, but here’s how I do it: Download the fonts to your desktop, open Font Book, click File, Add Fonts, then select the files you just downloaded to your desktop, and click Open. Then, your fonts should be downloaded! If they aren’t showing up in Word or other programs, try restarting the program(s).
