Fonts?

Postby jadeTheshade » Fri Aug 06, 2010 2:32 pm

does anyone know of a safe website where i can download free fonts for a project i am working on? i've got one already, but any more that you guys can direct me to would be awesome...
i just want to avoid downloading all sorts of fun viruses to my home computer^^
thanks!
(i hope this is in the right area, i couldn't think of anywhere else to put it...>.>)

dafont.com! It's a really great website with a lot of free, decorative fonts. I'm assuming you are looking for decorative fonts--if you're looking to download bodycopy font styles, I don't think I can help you unless you want to pay about $30 per font. XD

I also use DAFont. :) It's fun to look at everything people have made...such creativity can be found there!

At first I misread this topic as "Pants?" and I was all ready to respond with "Nope!"

dafont has already been mentioned, that's the biggest one. There's also http://www.1001freefonts.com/

And for video game fonts, http://www.zone38.net/font/ They have the Link to the Past font, the Mr. Saturn font, Donkey Kong Country font...lots of good stuff.

All those fonts will work in photoshop once activated on your computer.

i knew about dafont, but i was not sure if it was completely secure. if i screw up my family's computer (which has absolutely no virus protection at all...) not only will i feel bad, but i won't be able to work on the project anymore, so please forgive me for being somewhat overcatious.
however, i think i can take you guy's word for it! thank you so much everyone!
thanks to nate particularly for the fine links! ;)

When a site seems suspicious you can use WOT and McAfee to check it out

Overall, they seem legitimate to me.
