I’ve downloaded a bunch of fonts and naturally I have a some favorites, some free and some I have paid for.

3 Websites to Download Fonts

For years I was stuck using only fonts that came with my computer. I didn’t have a ton of options so my designs were… boring. It took a long time for me to realize that I could download fonts off the internet to use! What?! I could have my own fun fonts instead of using Arial or Georgia? Life changing, right?

When I first started downloading fonts I wasn’t sure what websites I could trust. Downloading from websites you don’t trust is frowned upon. I certainly didn’t want to get a virus because I was careless. Over the years I found three websites that I love and trust and wanted to share with you!

DaFont

This was one of the first places I found for free fonts. Most of them are free for personal use but if you want to use them on projects you plan to sell, you’ll have to find ones that are 100% Free. See the picture below to see where you can find that information as you look through fonts.

Font Squirrel

‘100% Free for Commercial Use’ is their slogan! So mostly all their fonts they have a license, allowing you use them on projects you plan to sell. Sometimes they have fonts where they believe they are free but they can’t be 100% sure. I’ve decided not to use these fonts for selling but you can decide on your own what is best for you.

Font Bundles

These are fonts you have to pay for but you can buy a bundle of fonts for a reasonable price. I’ve bought a couple bundles for specific fonts and I’ve never been disappointed! They all have commercial licenses so you can use them on projects you want to sell and you don’t have to worry about any issues! They do have some free fonts available.
