WOAH THERE, MAKE SURE YOU READ THIS FIRST
Before we get to the fun part, here’s some things you need to know. Although the majority of these cool free fonts are actually free for you to use for personal or commercial use, it’s vitally important that you check the licence agreement for any font you choose before downloading it.
It’s also a good time to give you a reminder about the term “royalty free”. When you see this term it’s important to understand that it means you can freely use the image without paying any extra royalties. It doesn’t mean there is no cost for a licence. You need to check that first – it may be that there is no cost or there could be a cost involved. Regardless, it’s always good (as we mentioned) to keep a copy of the licencing terms around the royalty free status.
All set? Great! Let’s dive into our list of Cool Free Fonts for 2019.
This article includes commercially licenced fonts in the first part and some personal use fonts at the end

We’re talking dozens of letters, characters, variations, upper case, lower case, italics, bold … and so much more. So we take our hats off to the designers who took the time to create these beautiful fonts for us to use and share with you.
A FINAL REMINDER
All the font licence information you need is listed on the website for each font. We’ve included them all in this post. And please, only upload fonts into Easil that you have full permission to use for the project you intend to use it for. Again, “free” doesn’t necessarily mean “royalty free” with regards to where you can use the font. It just means that you don’t have to pay for the font.
Now… go and enjoy our list of cool free fonts. The hardest decision you’ll make today is choosing which one to start with!
