I’m always on the lookout for great display fonts for use on my posters, postcards, brochures, and outdoor design work. Boldin fits the bill. Boldin is a free font, and comes in three typefaces: Bold, Black and Outline.
There are fonts you use every day, then there are those priceless ones you only bust out for a special occasion. Outlaw is one of those fonts you may only use once, but you’ll be happy you have it when you do. Outlaw features a fantastic grunge appearance on a western-style font. The author of the font, Billy Argel, is particularly good at creating grunge fonts – so be sure to check out his other fonts available on DaFont.
UrbanFonts has a huge collection of free fonts in dozens of categories. One of those categories is Famous Fonts, where you can find Batman Forever (pictured above). Granted, this isn’t the type of font one uses every day, it will most likely find a use once or twice – thus making it worthy of download. Be sure to check out the rest of the Famous Fonts.
Among the 600-plus fonts that FontSquirrel offers, free for commercial use, Ballpark is one of those fonts that you don’t use often, but you’re glad you have it when you need it.
FontSquirrel is one of my favorite font resource sites, and I highly recommend bookmarking it for future font searches.
When you’re on the hunt for unique and readable fonts, one of the most difficult to find is calligraphic/script fonts. They’re usually too scripty, not scripty enough, or flat-out ugly. Jane Austen might be the answer to your prayers.
The League of Movable Type has released Junction, a beautiful sans serif typeface with an old-style serif look to it. Junction is an OpenType font with upper and lower case letters, punctuation and numbers; and is free to use for personal and commercial projects.
