    nice collection but…
    those are only free for personal use, so your headline “Free Fonts Best for Business Logos” is a bit misleading…

      Thanks for pointing frank. I just checked and some of those fonts are not for commercial use. We will try to put the license information with them in next articles.

      Frank’s right, everyone. Know your licenses! A free font (as in beer) may not be free as in use; in particular the dafont fonts say “Free for personal use” in the upper right hand corner of the pages. That means you can use it to your heart’s content as long as you don’t use it to make a living. Then you have to pay.

      Now, I’m not saying don’t download these fonts or try to use them. All I’m saying is, know what you have the right to do … and be careful, my brothers and sisters. It only takes one designer or four to notice and cause you embarrassment or litigation.

      Just be careful.

    I definitely appreciate your great collection…..I will download all of them but it would have been better if you had collected all of them in a zip file……downloading all of them one by one is a chore!

    awesome set of resources! thank you for sharing this and doing the research for us all to discover. i will definitely be referencing this time to time.

    i just want to add, another excellent resource / place for typography is http://www.pilo.me – it by far is the most complete and solid font forum i have visited. you can definitely find similar resources as you have mentioned here at pilo. anyhow, give it a look if you are a type lover. i think it is invite only or it usually is at least, so good luck getting in. if you do get in, be sure to participate as i know they remove deadbeat users time to time.

    thanks again for the excellent links!

    Excellent choices, I love most of these and I also found one or two new fonts I’ll give a try.

    I’m thrilled to see that you used my textures as backgrounds for the previews and put them to such good use.
