Dafont

I ran across this Web site while looking for fantasy dingbats. I needed some unicorns for a story I’m working on for my niece and boy, did I hit the mother load here!

I will happily confess that I am a font junkie. I adore finding new, interesting and low cost cialis free fonts that I can download and use to my heart’s content. This site is pretty much a gold mine for me when it comes to free fonts!

This site is available in English and French as well. You’ll find the option to switch it beneath the Dafont logo in the top left hand corner of the page.

There are several ways to browse the fonts on this site: Theme, New Fonts, Font Authors, Top 100 and Alphabetically. There's also a search engine if you have an idea of what font you’re looking for. If so, you can just type it in and click on the Search button.

On the main page, you’ll find the three most recently added fonts. While I was there, they were Vintage, Oho de Boi and VTKS Rock Garage Band. You’ll also see some of the themes above that section. I’d recommend clicking on the Themes link instead so that you can see them all at once. It's also much easier to read the theme titles on the theme page.

What I love the most about this site is they give you excellent directions on how to install the fonts on Windows Vista, Windows XP and MAC OS X. WorldStart also has a tip on installing fonts here.

Well, I hope you find some amazing fonts to add to your font library. I surely did!
