Curated list of Free for Commercial Use Fonts

Recommended Posts

Hi there!

I just wanted to share a list of Free for Commercial Use Fonts. This is a curated[*] list of some of the best freely available Fonts out there. The criteria I had in order to come up with this list:

  • They have to be either Free or Open Source Fonts.
  • They can be used in commercial projects (some restrictions may vary from Font to Font, so be sure to read first). I made my best to ensure this point, but I could be wrong and I'd be more that happy if you let me know if I made a mistake.
  • No attribution required.
  • In some cases (Serif and Sans Serif), they have to have more than two weights (at least one italic included).
  • Support for Spanish characters like Á, Ü, ¿¡!?, Ññ (since I speak Spanish, this was mandatory, but there are many more good Fonts that don't cover this criteria).

[*] I have basic knowledge about typography, but I have read reviews from well educated people in order to ensure quality.

 

Well, here it is the list. As you can see, they are grouped by classification, and a general one in that regard. Some of the Serif and Sans Serif fonts were included in "Headlines" because they had one weight or they had no italics/oblique.

 

[UPDATE] Added notes on some cases, like what the Font can be an alternative of.

[UPDATE] Added the number of Fonts.

Oh my....thanks for the work of assembling these!

Glad you liked the post! I have done research and comparisons for over a year, and I came up with this list.

I updated it so that it is a richer Topic. Also, I might as well add more Fonts to the list.

Best regards!

Thank you. It's not always clear on the license, some say 100% free then you dig and find they're not really.  So a useful list.

I've tried to ensure the information provided was legit so that fonts could be used commercially (I deleted Marcelle, since there was a detail I overlooked in the License; also, with Universal Serif, I couln't find something that doesn't allow its use, that's why is still there). I'd be more that happy if you could point out if a Font can't be used a freely as I thought in the first place. Also, consider the finer details provided in each case; some allow to embed the Font, some don't.

By the way, I added two more: Caslon Antique (first list) and Neon One (second list).

Best regards!

It was just a general observation about font licenses sometimes being being misleading at first glance. I've not noticed any in these lists having that problem.

I know, but I checked again some cases and found that Marcelle was free for personal use only, that's why I deleted it. The purpose of my post was to provide Fonts for Commercial use.

Best regards!
