15 Excellent Free Font Resources

Posted in Fonts, Freebies • Posted on 17 Comments

title-typo I wanted to share web pages where to find great free fonts, so I looked after the most popular web pages where to find some. If You don’t know how to install one, it’s easy:

a) Windows XP – put font into C:/windows/fonts directory;
b) Windows Vista – right-click on the font files, then click “Install”;
c) Mac OS X – double-click the font file, then click  “Install font” button.

1. Dafont.com

Dafont has the biggest collection of free fonts and has been updated constantly. This is my personal favorite one – 8,276 fonts for now.

dafont

I like this one, because of categories split in detail and type your text preview feature – allowing You to use it like font viewer browsing over pages, while choosing the best solution.

dafont-preview

2.Typenow.net

Last update has been made at 29th April of 2007, but there are 6,846 different fonts. I think worth looking.

4. Creamundo.com

5. Showfont.net
