Where to find free fonts for Cricut?
CreativeFabrica is a great place to find free fonts for Cricut crafting. They also have an affordable membership, which makes it a great option for people who want to save money on fonts.
2. Font Bundles
Font Bundles is my all time favorite! They have great paid fonts that can be used commercially, but they also have a bunch of freebies. For designers on a budget, Font Bundle is a great resource. Every week, they offer a selection of free design goodies, including fonts, graphics, illustrations, and more.
Dafont is a real golden oldie. They have some really cool niche fonts but also have a great collection of neat, clean ones. You can sort through multiple types of licenses, like ‘100% free’ to be sure you can use the fonts commercially.
Font Squirrel is perfect for some basic fonts. Their fonts are licensed for commercial work.
Creative Market offers a selection of free design goodies each week. With new freebies added every week, you’re sure to find something that catches your eye. Whether you’re looking for fonts, graphics, templates, or other design resources, Creative Market has you covered.
How to install your free fonts on Cricut Design Space
Prior to installing your fonts, you must unzip the files if they are compressed (‘zipped’). You can do this by double-clicking (Mac) or selecting “extract” (PC/Windows).
After the files are unzipped, you have to right-click the font and select “Install” to install it. After the font is installed, it will be available in Cricut Design Space.
Double-click on the .ttf or .otf file to install the font on your Mac’s Font Book. After the font is installed, it will be available in Cricut Design Space.
What’s the difference between .TTF and .OTF for installing your Cricut fonts?
.TTF (TrueType Fonts) and .OTF (OpenType Fonts) are both file formats that can be used to install fonts. Both types of fonts can be installed on your computer, but they have some key differences. For example, OTF files can support more complex character sets and glyphs than .TTF files.
Should I use .TTF or .OTF for my Cricut?
In general, OpenType Fonts (OTF) are generally considered to be superior to TrueType Fonts (TTF), and so if you have the choice between the two, OTF is the better option. That said, if you cannot access OTF fonts for some reason, then using TTF fonts are not going to cause any significant problems.
