15 Fabulous Free Fonts


The other day I had a reader ask me where I get all my fonts (I admit, I do have a lot). I've bought a few, but actually most of my favorites are ones I downloaded for free, or came with my computer. If you're anything like me, you love free stuff, so I thought I'd share their names so you too can expand your font collection without spending a dime. Here they are--fifteen fabulous free fonts!

15 fabulous free fonts | At Home in Love

1. Dawning of a New Day // 2. Bebas: With clean, modern fonts like this one or Futura medium, I often increase the tracking (the space between the letters) // 3. Janda Stylish Script // 4. Frontage Outline: The rest of this font is not free, but you can get the outline version by "paying" with a tweet or a facebook post. // 5. Sail // 6. Futura Medium: This came with my computer. If you have it on yours, you should definitely use it--it's my go-to! Simple without being boring, it looks good with just about anything. // 7. Fontleroy Brown // 8. Brannboll // 9. Pea Matt & Kari: There are tons of fun handwriting fonts at this site--you can even submit your own handwriting! I have several of their fonts; this is one of my favorites, probably because it's pretty similar to my handwriting. // 10. Agent C // 11. Prophecy Script // 12. Quicksand: I recently started using this font a lot and I love it! The "Q" on it is especially cute. It's the font I used for this post. // 13. Didot: This also came with my computer, so if yours doesn't have it I'm sorry! It's pretty in regular, bold, or italic. // 14. Impact Label: This is fun novelty font, that looks like old Dymo labels. I haven't used it in any posts, but I think it would be cute for scrapbooking or card-making. // 15. Arsenale White

Do you have any favorite fonts, free or otherwise? Leave their name(s) in the comments so we can all check them out!

P.S. I've written some new font posts since this one--check them out here and here.

    Thanks for sharing these! I especially love the Bebas and Quicksand. I'll totally be using those two in a post next week. I love when bloggers share their favorite font selections!

      You're welcome! Quicksand is my current fave--I've been using it all the time!

    Did you have any trouble downloading the frontage font? I shared on my facebook page but I didn't see a download link. Thanks!
    • Posted by Aileen on Wednesday, August 14th, 2013

      No, I don't think I had any trouble...but I got it about a year ago. Try this link: I think once you post, you'll need to click the "access now" bar.

    I am a huge lover of fonts and this is a huge collection, I must say – most of them eye-catching and great for professional designs.

  14. Posted by Kayla on Sunday, September 8th, 2013

    This post is amazing, thank you so much! Some of the font websites can be so overwhelming-- so to have them displayed like this is so helpful!

    Great compilation! I used Janda Stylish and Sail for my daughter's birthday party invites and dessert treats labels. I'll download the others now. :)

      I’m glad you like them!

    Beautiful blog, btw! :D
  18. Posted by Erik on Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

    Some of these aren't free, Futura Medium, for example, is $24.95! Yikes!
    • Posted by Aileen on Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

      Hi Erik! It came "free" on my computer (same with Didot), which is why I included it--so you could discover some gems within the fonts you may already have. Sorry for the confusion if your computer doesn't already have Futura! It's one of my favorite fonts though, so I think $25 is totally worth it. I use it a LOT!

    Thank you so much! I can't wait to try a couple of these, haven't downloaded any fonts before onto my Mac. When I clicked and chose install, that FontForge (I think?) popped up and sounded like it was going to take over my safari/internet? Is that right? Or am I just totally not understanding which wouldn't surprise me. :)
  20. Posted by S on Saturday, January 4th, 2014

    I love these fonts! I'd seen a few of these before but I really liked Quicksand. I'm going to start using it ASAP!

    Thanks for sharing!
