44 Websites to Find Free Fonts

If you’re a graphic designer who can’t bear to see Helvetica used for one more postcard or Times New Roman on another newsletter, then it’s time to expand your font library. But what to do when you’re a freelancer on a budget? Find free fonts!

I racked the brains of designers as well as scoured the web in search of free fonts. I then compiled a list that includes popular go-to sites such as DaFont as well as lesser-known pages and even nondesign websites that just happen to provide free fonts. The fonts you’ll find on these sites include calligraphy, stencils, military, children’s themes, handwriting, graffiti and comic fonts. You’ll find inspiration for wedding invitations, business cards, scrapbooks, marketing postcards, kids’ parties and more.

A caveat: Not every font on each site listed here is free. On some sites, every font is free of charge, and on others, perhaps just one is.

I have a request for typography fans: Which free font sites am I missing?
