New Free Script Fonts With Multiple Glyph Styles – Part 2

Elegant, versatile, and overly popular as script fonts are, there weren’t enough occasions for me to use them in my design work. Most of my projects required a clean-cut look and simplicity of sans-serif fonts. So as my personal side project, I came up with a script fonts’ reference file and made it a habit to keep it constantly updated. Just simply sifting through it gets me into a creative mood.

Free Modern Script Fonts With Stylish Glyphs For Commercial Use


The most important thing I’ve learned from my experience as a graphic designer is that typography alone can make or break a design. Discovering the power of fonts and learning all about tails, stems, and ears that letters are made of was the best takeaway from my years in the graphic design program.

I know my way around typography and the best classic typefaces that would suffice for any design, but new fonts keep inspiring me at every turn.

The number of fonts available to designers and crafters is infinite, so is the amount of time you spend looking for that perfect fit. But in many cases, free fonts that you find online come with a personal use license and can only be downloaded as a demo version with no glyphs or additional characters support. So you are not only limited by the number of projects you can use these fonts for but also left with a barebone version of otherwise a feature-rich font with tons of lovely extras.

I looked and sifted through font sites to find the fonts that can be used both for personal and commercial projects. Hands down, one of the great sites that allows you to use fonts for commercial use at no charge is Font Bundles.

I hope this will make searching for the right font for those t-shirts, farmhouse signs, or mugs intended to sell easier. Using any of these fonts can up your typography game and make any project a hundred times more enjoyable to work on. These fonts just call for a beautiful design.

GLYPHS

What’s more? Most of these fonts come with dozens of beautiful alternates – glyphs. All the swirly alternatives of standard letters and characters will help you customize and elevate your designs with minimal effort. The best way to access the glyphs is to use software that supports OpenType features, such as Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop.

OTF vs TTF 

When installing these fonts, make sure you choose the OpenType (.otf) font file.  OTF files are the ones to contain custom ornate alternates than their TTF counterparts. Swashy variations of standard letters, custom ligatures, special characters, and other lovely extras are all hidden treasures in OpenType fonts.


FONT LICENSING

While these fonts can be used for various commercial projects from product design to branding, there are still some restrictions under the commercial license you have to be familiar with – re-selling or giving away the font file for one. If using the font on the web, make sure you are aware of the pageviews limitation per month on a website you are adding the font to. So it’s very important you take a careful look at the license file on the download page or in the zip font folder before installing and using the font.

However, in most cases, if you an Etsy seller or Cricut enthusiast, you should be in good shape to use any of these fonts for your creative projects to sell.
