Finding fonts is already a very difficult task but it would be much more difficult if these sites weren’t here to the rescue. We’ve here listed some of the best sites from where you can find your ideal font for free.
1. Font Squirrel
Font Squirrel doesn’t just provide a huge collection of fonts but it also provides links to other free fonts that are available elsewhere. In my personal opinion Font Squirrel is the best place to consider if you are looking for fonts that are free for commercial use. It offers high-quality fonts that you can find using the recent tab or search bar or you can even find a font by uploading an image to its built-in Font Identifier feature.
2. 1001 Fonts
Arranged with complete perfection across 64 categories 1001 Fonts provide more than 10k fonts. And to find the ideal font from the river of fonts that it offers it has created a category system at the top that also lets you search for fonts using the designer's name. It also lets you type your own text to preview your text in different font faces in real-time.
3. Google Fonts
Google Fonts catalog places typography front and center, inviting users to explore, sort, and test fonts for use in more than 135 languages. All the fonts in their catalog are free and open-source, making beautiful types accessible to anyone for any project. Google Fonts takes care of all the licensing and hosting, ensuring that the latest and greatest version of any font is available to everyone.
DaFont has a huge collection of more than 40k fonts on its website. And to find the ideal font from the river of fonts that it offers it has created a category and sub-category system at the top. It also lets you type your own text just like the other major font sites to preview your text in different font faces in real-time.
5. Urban Fonts
Urban Fonts also offers a huge collection of fonts like DaFont but the user experience of this website is more modern and smooth. The categorization section for finding the fonts and the text preview section is quite the same in the functionality as DaFont but this website also offers the ability to reverse the preview background, so that you can also test your font with a black background.
Fontspace also has a huge collection of more than 45k fonts but by default, Fontspace shows all the available fonts of the website, you’ll have to click the Gear icon and select the “Only show commercial-use fonts” option to see the unrestricted fonts. Alongside the fonts, Fontspace also shows a little marketing image of the font provided by the designer, which tends to be useful if you are considering to use in your graphic design project.
