Free Fonts!

OK, if you are like me, you are obsessed with fonts!!!!  I love them.  I have more than 2,000 on my computer.  Man does it slow it down!!!!  But, I can never get enough.

Since I have been taking my blog design course, I am finding the best clipart and fonts that we can use as teachers for free!  Love that!

Here is a new font site with the BEST and Cutest fonts!

They are free for personal and teacher use, but if you are planning on selling using them, you must give credit (easy to do a little blurb)or pay a little sum to not give credit.

If you click on the shop section, there is also some very cute clipart that is very inexpensive.  If you are a TPT kind of teacher, you can buy the extended commercial license and use the clipart as much as you want and sell it on other sites.  This is something I just learned.  

Just Learned This: When you buy clipart on a site, you are only buying it for a limited number of times you can sell or use it, unless you buy the extended license.  This is something I learned yesterday and we could be opening ourselves up for issues if we don't spend that extra money.  YIKES!!!!!  Thank goodness I have to take a little intellectual property and cyber law class with this whole graphics and design thing.  :)  Just thought I would share, because I didn't know this!

  3. Hi Mrs. Walsky - I'm going to make myself crazy. Can you give some easy directions for getting the fonts into the right spot on my computer. I download them and then put them in the folder I think is for fonts, but they aren't showing up there. Thanks for any help you can give!

  4. Just stumbled across your site and thought I'd share a tip to a fellow font lover...Extensis Suitcase Fusion...it's a program that catalogs and organizes all of your fonts. You can disable the ones you don't regularly use, and it speeds your machine up A LOT!! There are a few other options out there, even a couple free/open source, but I have yet to find something I like as well as suitcase fusion.
