We will dwell on this in more detail, but for now, here are a few resources where you can find great collections. From Maui Potente you can have the best options now.
Font Squirrel: This is probably the best site with free fonts licensed for commercial use (one and all). Here you will find an extensive collection of quality, hand-selected options. You can search by category or tag (regular, retro, grunge).
Google Fonts: This is a directory of free fonts for websites and other web projects and applications. The collection contains hundreds of publicly available fonts that you can edit, distribute, etc. All of them are optimized for web pages and are accompanied by instructions on how to add the appropriate Html code to your website or integrate it into your CSS. Moreover, you can download fonts to your computer and use them on print media.
DaFont: At the moment, this resource offers 25,000 free public demo fonts. But since any user can add their work to this database, then there are fonts of completely different quality. Many options are free for personal use only.
1001 Fonts: Now 7,000 free fonts of different quality are available in the database. Here you will find a special section with free fonts for commercial use. You can search by type/style/ mood, time periods, and even holidays.
Other resources: they offer rather modest collections, but there you can also find quite decent options.
Lost Type Co-Op: Trending, unique and vintage fonts available for personal use on a pay-as-you-go basis. You may not even pay anything, but why not support the designers?
Fontfabric: A small but diverse collection of free professional fonts. From time to time new options are added to the database.
FontShop: Almost everything is available on a paid basis here, but you will get some variations with richness and styles for free. To download, you need to register an account.
Pixel Buddha: This site has a modest section with original, hand-drawn fonts. Although they are free, you will need to register an account to download them.
When you buy a font or download it for free, this does not always mean that now you can do whatever you want with it. Before using it, be sure to check its license. They are usually licensed for personal, commercial, or educational use.
Some fonts have a limitation on the frequency of their use in print or online. It may also be indicated whether the distribution of a font is permitted, and if so, under what conditions. By carefully reading the license of your chosen option, you protect yourself and / or your client.
