8 FREE FONT RESOURCES | Add a Unique Text Look
DaFont has organized their fonts into easy-to-navigate categories like Script, Comic, Grunge, and Handwritten. One of the site highlights is being able to type in custom text and see it previewed in different fonts before downloading. HUGE selection of PC and Mac compatible fonts.
Font Squirrel is one of the newest online free font communities. They may not be the biggest collection online, but what they lack in selection they make up for ten fold in quality. Most all of these typefaces have full alphabet, numbers and symbols available. Also, ALL the fonts on Font Squirrel are 100% free for commercial use.
Font Diner has some of the best retro-specific fonts online. These fonts are great for emphasizing a vintage 1950’s or 60’s vibe. All of the fonts on Font Diner are available for Mac and PC. While you’re there check out some of their high quality pay for use fonts as well!
Like DaFont, Font Stock has their fonts broken up into individuals categories so it’s easier to find the one you’re looking for! Be sure to check out their huge selection of Christmas and Kids themed fonts.
Abstract Fonts stands out for their clean interface design, huge category selection and custom font preview option! Updated often, Abstract Fonts has about 14,000 fonts for use in your video projects.
1001 Free Fonts has a huge repository of high quality fonts. All fonts are PC and Mac compatible and give the option for a large custom preview.
Urban Fonts is another great collection, with a big selection and multiple categories. For me, the major highlight of Urban Fonts is their substantial variety of ethnic and cultural styles including Russian, Hebrew, Japanese, Greek, Chinese and Arabic looks. Give your projects a touch of culture with these distinctive typefaces.
MyFonts lives up to it’s slogan, “The world’s largest collection of fonts,” but many of the fonts (and font sets) on the site are pay for use.
Sort MyFonts to just show free font versions and you’ll find over 600 high quality free font downloads.
The site is easily navigable and offers great tools such as a dynamic text preview that allows you to change size, color and see how the font would appear in different web browsers.
