But First, a Disclaimer
Most of these fonts are free for you to use for personal or commercial use, but we must state that it is important you check each font’s website for the licence terms – terms may change, and it’s always best to check the source.
Also, a gentle reminder about the term “royalty free”. The word “free” in royalty–free refers to the fact that you can freely use the image without paying additional royalties, and doesn’t guarantee that there is no cost for a licence. It’s always best to check. We also recommend you keep a copy of the licencing terms or take a screenshot.

A Massive Thank You
We have to say a HUGE thank you to the creators of the fonts in this post. Creating a font is not an easy task. You can’t just throw up a few lines and curves to create 26 letters.
It involves dozens of characters, variations, capitals, lower case … then italics, bold and more. With a hefty dose of patience and attention to detail thrown in! So we are hugely grateful to the designers that provide these best free fonts for us to use.
Again, while we have aimed to only include the best free fonts that are free for personal and commercial use, you still need to check the font licences of each individual font for personal and commercial use.
All font licence information is listed on the font websites. Only upload fonts into Easil that you have full permission to use. “Free” doesn’t necessarily mean “Royalty Free” in terms of where you can use it. It just means that you don’t have to pay for the font.
