Shiny new font blog

64 comments By //

Ok, so it's really more green than shiny, but it is new! This will be our place to talk about website changes, and the wonderful world of free fonts.

We hit 13,000 free fonts this month. Wow — a big thanks to all the designers out there who have shared their fonts for free. Also, thanks to fontologist who has been busy adding many rare fonts from the late 90's.

We've got a lot of updates coming to FontSpace soon. The "add to favorites" will get a face-lift. The popular fonts page will feature newer fonts as well, not just the ones with tons of downloads. Stay tuned and visit often to see the improvements.

Here are some of the subtle updates we've made over the last few months.

Commercial-Use filters

For all the pros out there it's 100x easier to find fonts with generous 100% free commercial-use licenses. Just click "Filter Options" and check the commercial-use box like the following picture.

Font Images (AKA "font plays")

If you've used one of the fonts here in an image, share your design on the font detail page. This is great for designers who have lots of examples of their fonts in action. Check out Giro by Marcelo for an example.

Previews with Colors

If you don't want to load up Photoshop for a quick splash of color, just click the color swatches on the customize bar.

Perma-links
Click the chain-link icon to get a permanent link to your customized settings. This includes the Text, Font Size, and Colors.

Private Messages
You can now contact any user by sending a private message. Just go to a user's profile and click the "Send Message" button. Your email address is not disclosed, no worries!

    Cool blog!!
  • New to the site. Where can I find the new 'green' fonts? (Ones that prints on the paper with holes?)
  • fontologist
    That's Ecofont, a free font by the Dutch design firm SPRANQ based on Bitstream's public domain font, Vera Sans. You can download it at this site, which sells software that will put holes in any font . . .

    Cool site. Was looking for the eco font also, but see someone has given the link for that. Cheers.

    Some great fonts here though that I'm keen to try out. If I use them on a website, will they be viewed 'as is' by the viewer, or only if that font is in browser?

    Thanks.
