An important thing about free fonts
Updated: Oct 14
I download most of my fonts from www.dafont.com. There I can find various fonts that fits my projects, and it is quick and easy to download and use the fonts. An imortant thing that I always make sure of, is that the font is 100% free to use for commercial use, so that I can use the font legal in a logo, poster, brochure etc. Or else, I will have to purchase a license to use the font for commercial use. Many people are not aware of this, and why it is so important.
Here is how to filter out the fonts that are 100% free for commercial use (please note: always read the note of the author, or the "read me"-file to assure that you are allowed to use the font for commercial use).
Here is an example of the fonts that shows up when you choose "basic serif".
If you take a closer look to the right, you can see that the font is free for personal use.
To find the fonts that are 100% free, click "more options".
Click "100% Free" and then click "Submit".
Now you can see that the "Vogue"-font and the "Sunflower"-font disappeared, because they were not free for commercial use. As you can see to the right, the fonts are 100% Free.
Please note: always read the note of the author, or the "read me"-file to assure that you are allowed to use the font for commercial use.
