Why spend money purchasing new software to add different fonts when you can download them for free?

Here is an example of the Coffee Tin MF Font:

coffee-tin-mf

Here are some websites you can use to download fonts:

http://www.1001freefonts.com/

http://www.fontspace.com/

http://www.urbanfonts.com/

http://www.free-fonts.com/

Although I’ve listed only a few websites, there are probably hundreds of websites that offer free font. The following instructions apply to the first website http://www.1001freefonts.com

 Installing New Fonts

1.  Search through the website and select a font. I have chosen Michaelmas.

2.  Based on your operating system, click the Download button. Since I am using a Windows operating system, I selected the “Download Win Font”. There is an option for Mac operating system users.

3.  A popup box will appear displaying where the Michaelmas font is downloaded. Click the Extract all files link under Folder Tasks. A new popup box will open, do not close this new popup box.

5.  Once the Fonts window is open, make the new font window, from Step 3, visible. You may need to reduce or increase the size of the windows in order for both windows to appear. To resize the window, move the bottom right corner of the window.

6.  In the New Font window, click the new font and drag it then drop it in the Fonts Window. The new font in this example is MICHAEL.TTF. Fonts have the file extension TTF and this stands for True Type Font. The Install Font Progress Popup Box will appear and will show the progress of the installation. Once the installation is complete, it will disappear.

7.  Once you have installed the new font, you can view it by opening any word processing application and selecting the new font. If you use Microsoft Word, just click the Format Menu and select Font.
