Recently, I was asked to join the United Way committee for my employer.
Of course, I took on the flyers. Which were due at month end (accountants know whats up with it) the day before we left for our two-week vacation. It’s fine, I work best under pressure.
Wanna know what I realized whilest working on said flyers?
I like fonts.
And I like them….a lot. Here are some of my favorites.
The best part is you can search every single one of those fonts at DaFont.com and get them for yourself.
Amendment: When I posted this I thought I downloaded them all from Dafont.com…it appears some aren’t there anymore. Click the links below for the missing fonts. Lainie Day, Sail, Rosewood, Modern No. 20, American Typewriter, and Simply Glamorous. Please let me know if anymore go missing….love you, mean it! No seriously, I mean it.
So you wanna see what I did with these spicy fonts? I took our normal clip art posters and made these….
I am by no means a graphic designer. But I will say I think these flyers are an upgrade and I am excited about it!
If you didn’t notice, most of the flyers are very text heavy. Choosing the right fonts made the poster more artistic than informational, and hopefully more people will take a look and get involved. Fingers crossed.
What about you all, got a favorite font I should know about?
I absolutely love this post! And I am soooo impressed by your posters! The Rooftop BBQ one is my favorite! If people don’t look at these and want to be involved, then they are cah-razy!
Awwwwwww thanks boo! I was really excited about them and I think they turned out really well considering my lack of photoshop skills 🙂 we are super excited to see you guys by the way!!!!!!

Hey this is awesome- what program did you create the flyers in?
Thanks 🙂 I used Photoshop….totally worth the money!!!
I really love the font you call “Sail” but I can’t find it on DaFont. Could it have a different name?
Hey Corissa! Sorry about that, I googled it and found this guy.
Awesome! Thanks Christina 🙂
No problem! Glad you liked it 🙂
Are the fonts free?
I was looking for ROSEWOOD and its $69.00
Hey Roxy, I know they are all free because I am too cheap to pay for them haha! Try this link here….
Let me know if that works!
I really love the one that looks like Laine Day, but not sure of the L. I tried it on DaFont, but no luck. Tried other letters too, J, F, I…no luck. Help??
It is Laine Day, try the link below….
Let me know if that doesn’t work 🙂
How do you download it and transfer it into microsoft word on a mac?
Hi Susan, you know I am actually not sure. I have a Mac but I only use it for personal uses and I use a PC to design in. I did find the video below that seemed pretty helpful….let me know if I can help with anything else!!!
Love these..wondering what font you used in your title “of homemade ocean”? Thanks
Never mind…..I realized it was Pacifico 🙂
Hahaha….you are correctomundo….Pacifico it was 🙂
Thanks for stopping by Heather!
Thank you for the post, but there are a ton of the fonts that are not on Dafont.com (Laine Day, Sail, Rosewood, Modern No.20, American Typewriter and Simply Gorgeous.
Oops! Thanks Tatiana….when I posted this I was sure I got them all from dafont.com but you are right some of them are nowhere to be found. I have an amendment coming atcha in a few minutes….thanks for the heads up!
For someone who is not a graphic artist you’ve got some mad designer skills!
Really – all a designer is is someone who borrows other people’s art and recreates it into something new. Keep it up – you’ve got talent!
Awwwwww thank you so much!!! That just seriously made my day 🙂
And thanks for stopping by!
So I downloaded one, but it doesn’t show up in Microsoft Word. How do I actually use this new font? I don’t have Photoshop.
Once you have downloaded the file. Click to open the zip file then click the truetype font file that is located inside the folder. It will have a print and install button at the top. Just click the install button and it will be ready for use.
I cannot find Wisdom Script on dafont.com and when I googled it, it came up on losttype.com, but it’s not free. Can you share where you found it?
Sorry! I found this on another blog when I googled it – “On Lost Type, you have the option to give a donation. You can simply fill in “0″ there (or some money if you are feeling generous) and you will be able to download it for free.”
Ohhh the great and powerful google 🙂
Glad you found it, let me know if I can help with anything else!!!
The font “Simply Gorgeous” is actually called “Simply Glamorous” and can be found on dafont, just to let you know. Thanks for sharing these!
Thanks Chrissy! I actually noticed that when I went searching for them and I don’t even know how I messed that up! I was just hoping no one would notice hahaha
Sail is missing now :0(
Thanks So much for doing this!!!

the only place I can find wisdom script requires you to pay for it. Do you have a link for it?
I am pretty sure I used this link http://www.losttype.com/font/?name=wisdom%20script but where it said name your price you can put 0.00. Let me know if that works. Thanks!
cool!!! how can i use it?
The fonts? You just download the font to your computer and then I always extract the files and install. Then it should be ready to go in all of your applications.
I found the link below pretty helpful…let me know if you have any questions.

I attempted to download halo hand letter and got a terrible virus instead…???
Oh no, sorry to hear that! We have had good luck with dafont.com in the past, I thought they were a safe site. Our apologies.
Your flyers turned out great and thanks for sharing this wonderful font list.
