This is a beginner friendly tutorial on how one can find a suitable font for their specific application and how to download and use it. There are many different websites which offer fonts for download, but finding a good font which fits what you have in mind is not necessarily trivial. Plus, not all the fonts are free depending on the type of use (personal or commercial). Actually, most of the fonts are not! But, there are many situations where you can use a font and not pay for it without violating the rights of the author.
Fonts can be classified into different font categories. Each category has its own specifications, but you do not need to know about them to be able to find your desired font. In all-fonts.com we have designed a page in which you can find and compare many fonts side by side. By scrolling down you can see tens of fonts at the same place without the need to go page after page. Moreover, all the fonts in our site are selected from a huge number of fonts and each and every one of them are excellent. This helps the users to find what they are looking for without doing a long search. If by looking at the fonts you find yourself more interested in one particular category, you can see all of the fonts in that specific category at one place. Just hover your mouse pointer over the “all fonts at a glance” menu at the top the page.
Once you have chosen the font, go ahead by clicking on the download link. What can be downloaded from most of font websites is a compressed file, containing a TTF (True Type Font) or OTF (Open Type Font) file and a text file containing the End User License Agreement (EULA). Once you have downloaded the file, extract it into a folder. Now, let’s see what you should do with each file.
