Quality Fonts

7 posts in this topic

It is my understanding from the boards that paid fonts are better than free fonts. Can someone please let me know a good site to get these quality fonts? If they are quality and free, great, if not, I dont mind buying them. There's no reason to make a great page and then put a messed up font on the page. Also, do you install fonts the same way at a style?

Not sure of the quality issue on fonts being free v. paid for. I've downloaded several free ones and have been very happy with them. I use the software The Font Thing to install my fonts. HTH!

Fonts.com has a lot of classic ones. I noticed they also sell a lot of fonts that look like they should be free.

I install them using The Font Thing (a free downloadable font manager program.) You point the program to your folder with the fonts and click install. I'm not sure where you put them if you don't use the Font Thing. Anyone?

Scrapgirls also sells some fonts right here in the boutique. I have gotten a couple.

 

I like a site called LETTERING DELIGHTS

for buying fonts and recently got a CD of 30 fonts for $5 (US). If you sign up for their newsletter you get 7 of their fonts free and right now they are advertising 30 fonts for under $30 at their site.

 

For free fonts I use dafont.com often.

I like the fontgarden for their handwriting fonts. They have a few for free to sample, and some to purchase.
