Fontspring: Fontspring Five Newsletter | February 2016


The Fontspring Five is a new newsletter we'll be bringing you at the end of every month. Each issue will showcase a particular theme represented by 5 typefaces.

This month we're highlighting font families that give away one or more weights for FREE. You can use them in print or web work, for free, forever. If you find them useful, consider coming back and rewarding the font designers with a purchase. All of them are reasonably priced and incredibly useful. We hope you like them!


Sánchez is a fantastic slab serif font. Use it for text or some banners with the free regular and italic weights, or purchase the thicker weights and expand it to even more bold titling.

The free weight of Look Script has a wood grain effect that we find very useful, not limiting or gimmicky. It works great for vintage effects, especially since it’s on the subtler side. Use it in a variety of designs, or opt for the full family and get a bunch more weights and effects.

Museo Sans, along with the other Museo fonts, are workhorse fonts that find their home anywhere. You can design a whole site in the 500 weights that are free, or create awesome looking banners. We love it for text especially. If you need a font family that’s not expensive, opt for this one, it’s a perfect first family for a new designer.

Sure you could use Times or Garamond in all your designs and look like everyone else, or you could grab Ethos and Ethos italic for free, and make original designs with a more contemporary serif font. If you fall in love with Ethos (and you will) the whole family is half off right now!

Novecento Sans actually got most of its popularity from its free weights, the Novecento Wide fonts. They make fantastic titling fonts, especially for modern designs. Plus there’s 6 weights to work with that are all free, giving you a really solid variety to make your designs.
