Fun with Free Fonts

Yesterday I made an invitation for a small Christmas cocktail party we’re having in a few weeks. While designing the invite I came across a number of really cool free fonts. If you love a good free font as much as I do, I thought you’d enjoy them too.

The first few I downloaded from Andy Nortnik and came in a pack titled Free Retro Fonts.

My favorite is Diner Sparkly, but I ended up using Brody and Expo for the invite.

Another great font I found was from Tack-o-rama called Air Conditioner

AW - I love Font Diner Sparkly! A couple of my favorite are ones I found while gathering fonts for our wedding stationary - Little Lord Fontleroy, akaFrivolity, Honey Script from DaFont.com; three dates, one night from kevinandamanda.com;

Love good free fonts! Diner Sparkly is in my blog header! :) I loved when I found Suzie's Hand which was hard to find free at first and it was used a lot for my wedding... also another one that I can't remember -- but it's something with Honey or Hunny I think!

I love finding new and free fonts! The ones you chose look great. I wonder what kind of event I could throw to use the rope one? LOL

Ooh, these are great! And that "mister" might be just what I'm looking for for a little project I'm working on!

Oh gosh. I thought the rope one said RAPE. I clearly am sleep deprived. Yet I LOVE fonts so BRAVO!! I always forget that you can get them free!
