Today’s font-tabulous post topic is brought to you courtesy of my awesome creative team, as they requested I write up a post sharing some of my favorite fonts. Since looking for new fonts is my idea of a good time, this seemed like an easy one! So without further ado, here’s a look at some of the fonts that are rocking my world right now and best of all, they’re (almost) all FREE!
Museo, Museo Sans and Museo Slab are currently my go-to font family. Museo Slab is the font I used for the NettioDesigns logo and the majority of the NettioDesigns website as well. I just love those little slab-tastic feet on each letter! I don’t use Museo and Museo Sans quite as often but when I need a subtle change of pace, one of them will usually fit the bill.
I can’t take credit for this font find as I found it through the lovely Elise Blaha but oh how I love it. It’s an all-caps font so use it sparingly unless you want to be shouting at everyone, but when you need to squeeze in a bunch of letters in a tight space, this font is your man.
This font is one of the few non-free fonts in my arsenal but I love it just as much today as the day I bought it. It’s a lesser known font so it doesn’t suffer from font overexposure like some fonts do, but with it’s clean lines and sans-style, it’s perfect for titles, journaling and even the tagline up there on my blog header.
This font is new-to-me but I used it recently in the promo graphics for my 1st Anniversary Celebration and I fell in love with it’s swishy vintage look. I’m already looking for more opportunities where I can squeeze this puppy into my designs.
This final font on my list should come as no surprise: my custom handwriting font courtesy of Darcy Baldwin at Sweet Shoppe Designs. If you have not had your handwriting turned into a custom font by Darcy yet, you should RUNLIKETHEWIND over to the Sweet Shoppe and get yourself one. Seriously. I will wait until you get back.
Because this little font is hands-down my most used font when it comes to scrapbooking. The personal touch it adds to my digital pages thrills me to know end. If my handwriting were to put on a tuxedo and don a top-hat, this is what it would look like – a more perfectly perfect version of my writing. Seriously. Go get yourself one.
And there you have it, my top 5 most currently used fonts! If you’re wondering where I find a lot of my fonts, MyFonts and Font Squirrel are two of my go-to places. MyFonts has a mix of free and paid fonts but Font Squirrel fonts are all 100% free for commercial use.
And for all you extra-credit font lovers, here’s a peek at a few more fonts that have caught my eye but I haven’t had a chance to use yet:
