1. Dafont

Dafont has one of the most diverse font collections on the web. Its library includes more than 20,000 options to browse, and the easy-to-navigate layout lets you search by category, title or author.

To install a font on a Mac, double click the title and select "Install," which will add it directly to your font library. For Windows, you can right click the font file and choose "Install."

2. FontSpace

FontSpace has 20,858 fonts in their database to explore. It’s similar to Dafont in that you can download fonts directly into your computer’s library, but the layout isn’t quite as clean-looking. Popular fonts at the moment include Cookie Monster, Motion Picture and Confetti Stream.

3. FontStruct

With FontStruct, you can create your own font using a basic drawing tool (pictured at the top of the post), then save it and upload into your library. If you don’t feel like making your own, you can peruse the site’s many other free options.

4. 1001 Free Fonts

1001 Free Fonts is a bit of a misleading name. According to the website, there are more than 10,000 fonts to choose from, organized alphabetically by title. They’re free to download individually, but you have the additional option of downloading 10,000 — with a single click — for $19.95.

5. Font Squirrel

Aside from having the quirkiest title, Font Squirrel is pretty similar to the rest of the websites in this list. You can search the network by font themes and classifications, and see which ones have been uploaded recently or downloaded most often.

6. Urban Fonts

Urban Fonts has more than 8,000 free fonts to download. You can also purchase the site’s "premium" fonts, which are linked up through Fonts.com, and typically range from $20 to $50.

7. Acid Fonts

Acid Fonts has a bare-boned, yet gorgeous layout. You can search for fonts by categories — like horror, graffiti or retro — and even connect with the site’s featured typography designers through their personal website links.

8. Abstract Fonts

Like the others, Abstract Fonts has a scrolling layout that lets you search for fonts by title, category or designer. There are currently more than 13,000 fonts available, and the website says more are added each week.
