My Favorite {Free} Famous Fonts

It’s been a while since I’ve done a font round up. If you’ve been a reader for a while, you know that I have a little bit of a font obsession (see HERE and HERE). I seem to change favorite fonts constantly!! It’s ridiculous the level of passion I have for something so intangible! I’ve been in party planning mode this month. I had the Blue & Gold Banquet last week. This weekend, I’m helping with a baby shower. And, later this month, my middle child is turning seven! One of my favorite parts of party planning is finding fonts! I know it sounds crazy, but it can make all the difference in the world with decorations (see my Angry Birds Party).

So, today, I thought I would share some of the FAMOUS fonts that I’ve come across and love. Some are incredibly obvious, but others you could easily use for just about anything and no one would even know that you were using a famous font! (Links to the download page are at the bottom).

  9. Those are great! You don't happen to have a Fancy Nancy font? Do you create these or just find them? Any recommendations on how to find the Fancy Nancy font? You're right, the correct font makes ALL the difference :) Thanks in advance

  10. Forgive me, this is the first time I have attempted to download any free fonts. I followed the steps and the download was successful. But when I open a word documents for example... the font is not listed as an option. I must be doing something wrong.

    Thanks for your help!

    1. I was wondering the exact same thing.

      Delete
    2. Did you install the font after you downloaded it? I've been considering doing a blog post on how to install fonts. Would that be helpful?

      Delete
    3. @shatzi yes, please publish as post! It would be very helpful.

    4. Open the font file and push download, then you may have to close out your Word document and reopen before it shows in your fonts. If it's still not working just type the name of the font into the font box and if it says it says something about nto finding it but asking if you still want to use it say yes and it should work. I had to play around a bit, but I got mine to work.

      Love these fonts and dafont.com!

  12. Hi, So glad I found your site! Just wondering if you have any other Disney fonts by chance? I would love to find the font used at Pop Century and the Art of Animation resorts. Lady and the Tramp would be awesome also! Thank you so much for posting the fonts that you listed above!

  22. I downloaded several of these--I wish the Disney one had the right D--even though it looks like a G. I think it should look like the original.

    2. You have to go to where the font is downloaded; extract it; copy; open up your fonts and then paste:

  24. Here's how to install Windows fonts for Win XP, Vista, 7 and 8. Straight from the top cos it is from my favourite company
    http://www.microsoft.com/typography/truetypeinstall.mspx

    I wouldnt use fonts in a blog though because some are only free for personal use. Even the others are using the marks of big companies who tend to get upset at their image being used without lots of dollars being paid.

    dafonts is a good site though cos I found one from there when doing a Paddy's Day graphic

  39. Love your list!! I have most of these but always love to find new fonts!! Thanks for sharing.

    I'm surprised no one else told you that a link isn't working. The link to "Island of Misfit Toys" goes to an error message...it looks like the first part, www.blogger.com, shouldn't be there. Anyway, I thought you would want to know this.
