If you make a lot of presentations, videos, or any other multimedia items, you probably need more fonts than just what comes on your computer. Be sure to check the license on the font if you are using it on something commercial or widely-distributed. Here are some of the best sites to look at:
- 1001freefonts.com– has many categories of fonts for free Windows/Mac download, also can download 10,000 fonts licensed for commercial use for $19.95
- freemacfonts.com– has a reasonable collection of Mac-only fonts, but poorly organized, search box takes you to a paid fonts site- you have to click through the alphabet to see all the fonts
- fontspace.com– A unique font site that has 13, 524 and counting free Mac/Windows fonts that are user-submitted
If you are bored or adventurous, you could try your hand at making fonts with FontForge. It is a clunky X11 app, so don’t expect that you’ll have time to design all your own fonts.
