An often asked question in online Silhouette or Cricut Crafts groups has to do with finding free fonts.
I ran across this question one day, in one of the groups I participate in, and nearly everyone said “DaFont.”
Now DaFont is great, but the fonts that are available there are freeware, shareware, demo versions, or public domain. They are free for personal use and if there is a commercial use license available clicking on the font to see the author’s notes will often take you to where you can buy the license.
So let’s say you came up with a cool design for a Father’s Day shirt, or your child’s birthday, or a cute baby Onesie for a shower. You press it up on your marvelous heat-press, everyone sees it, and suddenly you’re taking orders.
Perhaps you came up with a gorgeous printable that you would like to market.
But wait a minute! Did you have the commercial use license for the font you used?
This post is not intended to give any sort of legal advice, but to point you in the direction of places where you can get Free Fonts for Commercial Use. You may want to do your own research to make sure your products are legal if you plan to sell them.
The thing is, commercial-use fonts can be expensive! Creators deserve to be paid for the work they do.
Sometimes you can find bundled deals on fonts making them a little bit less. If you use lots of fonts, you can get a subscription to some of the websites that sell premium fonts and get credits to download their products.
Today I just want to share my top pick plus a couple more sites that I’ve found for Free Commercial Use Fonts to use with your Cricut, Silhouette, or another cutting machine.

Creative Fabrica has Freebies and Free Daily Gifts on their website including free commercial-use fonts.
Their Daily Gifts include a new free font, free graphic, and free craft each day of the week. They also have a subscription program that includes all the fonts, graphics, patterns, ebooks, and more that are on their site.
They have an amazing amount of offerings on Creative Fabrica that includes knitting and crochet patterns, teaching materials for kids, sewing and embroidery patterns and so much more.
Font Bundles and Design Bundles have Free Commercial Use Fonts and Graphics for your project needs. They also offer a wide range of discounted products, bundles, and daily deals.
They are very generous with their free offerings so be sure to check them out and share the resources with others.
So Fontsy has trendy fonts and amazing designs for crafters. I like the way their search menu breaks down their products into sublimation designs, paper crafts, mockups, foil quill, and more.
They also have tutorials for products and projects that you won’t want to miss. If you are a creator and want to do a mockup or if you want to learn how to use foil quill these are just a couple of offerings on their website.
Font Space has free fonts for personal use and for commercial use. I have not used this resource, but in looking it over there are some neat fonts there. I think what made this website worth mentioning is its search options. I like the way you can go to the “Styles” in the menu for some neat search options. I know I’ll be giving this resource a closer look! While you can create an account, it isn’t required for downloading the fonts.
