New Site For Free Commercial Fonts

Monday, May 25, 2015

You may have heard of The Hungry JPEG through their great Fontastic Font Bundle of 45 commercial-use fonts for only $29. But they also have daily posts of free commercial-use fonts, and a weekly email that showcases a whole list of free commercial-use fonts!

One of this week's fonts available is Sophia, a beautiful watercolor font.  They also have fonts that are thinner and less decorative, such as Big John, Slim Jim.




To subscribe to their Email List, all you have to do is enter your email address on their home page and click the Subscribe button.  While you are there, you can check out the other fonts, graphics, Photoshop mockups, and more.  The key is that the free fonts are only available for download for a short period of time, so check there often! 

Why are these fonts so great? Besides the obvious use for them in Photoshop or Illustrator, they are excellent fonts for the Silhouette!  Since they are Commercial-use fonts, you are given permission to sell your items using these fonts as soon as you download them!  I personally use the script fonts (which are so hard to find for the Silhouette for free) with a slight External Offset of around 0.015 - 0.020 so that it is easier to cut out the thinner areas.

These fonts would look great on Scrapbook or Smashbook pages, in customized Silhouette vinyl applications, or even to fabric paint on a T-shirt! The possibilities are endless with these free fonts. So go grab some and have fun! I'd love to see a picture of what you make with them (I will be posting a project soon with these fonts!)

About Me

My name is Michelle Herren. I have been married for 22 wonderful years and have 2 teenagers I'm proud of. I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder in 2004.

I'm a serious crafter, a published polymer clay artist and a jewelry designer. I even appeared on two segments of the HGTV craft show "That's Clever!"

My site will be a bit eclectic. I will post things on crafting, on homemade bath items, holiday gifts, paper crafting with a die cut machine, stamping, marbled paper, book binding, recipes, home decoration and more!
