DAFONT is a free digital resource that helps you discover fonts.
- Sign up to upload your own fonts, comment on fonts, post on the forum, or to compare fonts
- Fonts are categorized into different styles such as Fancy, Curly, Retro, Medieval, Sans serif, and Nature
- Provides a visual of what your text will look like by allowing you to enter sample text and customize its font size
- Not every font is available for commercial use so be sure to review the Copyright Info on how to determine a font is free for commercial use
Yes. This resource may require you to give attribution/credit.
DAFONT fonts are user submitted and therefore have rules conditional to the creator. Not every font has been approved for commercial use.
- How to ensure you are using fonts that are free for commercial use:
- Select a category/theme
- Select “More options”
- Select your preferred filter
- Public domain
- GPL (General Public License)
- OFL (Open Font License)
- 100% Free
I would recommend that even after filtering fonts in a chosen category/theme, you choose still review the font details and the font documentation to ensure the font is still free for commercial use.
Because mistakes can happen, and policies can change, I recommend you stay up to date with the resources you use, and if their usage rules are available, keep a copy of them for your own records. Keep informed.
If free resources ever become too limiting, you can explore new strategies, discover professional resources, or browse popular gear that help take your creative journey to the next level.
