Download Free Cool Fonts

Maybe you’re a beginner designer, or you are an author and just came out with an eBook you need a cool cover for. How can you get your design to stand out? I suggest, downloading free fonts – gothic fonts, script fonts, word fonts, handwriting fonts, tattoo fonts – all free for you to download depending on where you go.The 7 Deadliest Mistakes You’re Making on Social Media

I’ve actually researched a bit, where you can go to get free but SAFE fonts. I use www.UrbanFonts.com very often. You can search fonts by category and view the styles without having to go through a ton of hoops. I’ve download lots of fonts from their site without a problem and today I’m going to teach you how.

First, check out the image on the right. That’s a screenshot of a page inside of an eBook I wrote, “The 7 Deadliest Mistakes You’re Making on Social Media” that’s being downloaded every day from entrepreneurs across the world!

Notice there are 3 custom, cool fonts I’ve used in the content for the eBook. (I didn’t need a designer to do that for me!) I just downloaded the fonts, they were automatically available in Microsoft Word where I wrote my eBook and the rest is history.

How do you download the fonts so you can use them in your design?

Using UrbanFonts.com, once you find the font you want to download (see this example for a visual):

On the right side of the font box, you’ll see a WIN | MAC . When I click on WIN, since I have a PC, A .zip file opens as a pop-up. Inside that .zip folder is the font file. You want to “open” the .zip file and you may find more than one file. Sometimes you’ll find a README.txt file, sometimes you’ll find multiple versions of the font (ya know how Ariel has Ariel Narrow, Ariel Wide, etc.? Same thing).

Next, you’ll select everything in the .zip file (PC users: Ctrl+A to select all), copy the contents (PC users: Ctrl+C to copy), then paste the files onto your Desktop (PC users: Ctrl+V to paste).

Now that our font files are on our Desktop, the download portion is complete. Now all that’s left is to install the fonts onto our computer’s C drive. Here’s the easy part of installing a font on your PC (Sorry Mac users, I’m a PC gal, you’re on your own for this part)…

This is an example of what you font file should look like on your Desktop:

All you need to do is Right Click your mouse on top of the file. A drop-down of options will appear and you want to select Install. You’ll see a progress bar and vuala! Your font was successfully installed on your C drive and holds a permanent spot. Repeat font install steps if you have multiple files and move on to the next font if you want.

Enjoy downloading your cool fonts – feel free to share links to ones you find and love!
