Sometimes with free fonts you get what you pay for, tacky, clunky and unrefined. Sifting through “free font” websites has always deterred me from browsing through the masses of “free fonts” that I’ll end up just buying a font to save time.  These days there are more and more gorgeous free fonts available, from beautiful, easy to navigate websites, making shopping for free fonts the best kind of free shopping around.

Here is are seven fonts that I thought would make great fonts for your blog logo,  for collages and banners. They’re called “Display Fonts” not meant for reading anything more than a few consecutive words. For the bulk of your posts it’s always best to stick to the classics, Georgia, Verdana, Arial, but snazzing up your blog will call in for more flamboyant fonts. Finding a unique one will help build your blog’s visual voice.

1. Ostrich Sans

Ostrich Sans is a great sans-serif display font that is beautifully simple, lean and yet has enough detail to stand out.

 

2. Cobbled

If you like the look of hand-drawn type, but have terrible handwriting. (ahem, me.) Cobbled will add that bit of hand made to your digital blog.

3. Znikomit

As a fan of American Typewriter, Zinkomint has a fantastic light version of this font, with added flourishes and ligatures to bring a bit of details to your logo or badges.

4. Lavanderia

I’m not usually a fan of script fonts, but Lavanderia, inspired by Laundromats in San Francisco’s Mission District, hits the spot. Elegant, retro, but clean and legible, it’s a great font to add that feminine touch to your style blog.

 

5. Silverfake

In college, I was a huge fan of slab-serif fonts. They’re bold, they’re quirky and they have this pioneering spirit, both figuratively and literally. There is something charming about slab-serif fonts, and I particularly love Silverfake with it’s mid-century meets Old West vibe.

6. Nelma

This ornate typeface both delicate and bulky has a very distinctive look to it. Nelma would make a great logo, and should be used sparingly as it’s such a distinctive font.

7. Infinity

The most clean and subtle font in this post, Infinity can be used both as a logo or with a bit more text, though I wouldn’t use for more than a short quote. It’s both modern and delicate and can be quite versatile for your different blogging needs.

      Hi there, I don’t know what kind of computer/operating system you have… but it’s a good idea to read the directions on the font’s website, as they will tell you how to install them.

    Love this post so much! I’m definitely one of those typography crazy people and I downloaded just all of those fonts! Some other fonts I love and can be used for Logos would be Fabrics, Wood, Jane Austen. Anoymous Clippings and Mossy are cool too! Handwriting fonts: Arsenale White, Dawning of a new day, CK Ali’s hand, Prophecy Script etc.
