Download Free Fonts

Now if you are like me, then you don’t like using the same old fonts over and over.  Reason being is that it tends to get a little boring after a while.  Your projects become mundane and predictable and all your work starts to look the same because they all utilize the same fonts.  I like to keep my font collection fresh, but at the same time I don’t want to spend 1000’s of dollars on new fonts.  So where does one go when they need to download some new fonts for free? Here is a list of my “Top 10 Favorite” sites to download free fonts.  Note:  Please read the terms and conditions on any website you visit and/or download from as downloading fonts may be free for personal use, but not always for commercial use.

Security Tip When You Download Free Fonts

A new trend is popping up within “downloading websites” (so I’ve noticed lately) and that is files are being packed by an executable file (.exe) file.  You’ll notice this when you click on “download” free font (or what it is you are downloading) and the file name ends with .exe.  Never, ever download anything that ends with .exe unless you absolutely trust it! Reason being is because you have no idea what the file you are downloading has been packed with; it could be anything including a virus!

For example fonts don’t end in .exe.  They end in .ttf, ttc, pfb, .pfm, or .otf (all window font styles).  When a file is packed with an executable file (.exe) you don’t know what else could be in there, and when you click on it and allow it to install on your computer you are allowing whatever else is in there to run and install as well.  There is no reason that when you download a free font it needs to be packed with an .exe file.

I have just noticed this lately within a lot of downloading websites.  None of the sites mentioned in this article allows for files to be downloaded as .exe at the time of writing this article.  However other Font websites out there do and I just wanted to pass on the warning for safe keeping.

So remember that if any file you are downloading ends in .exe – DO NOT download it. If it ends in .zip, .rar, .tar.gz then that is okay, those are just compressed files.  See full list of compressed files by clicking here…

If you are ever unsure about downloading anything, simply type it in Google and see what other people are saying about it.  Avoid download .exe files directly as they will most likely harm your system or install unwanted software such as annoying ads or toolbars for your browsers.
