Website of the Day: better fonts

Are you bored with over-used default fonts like Times New Roman, Arial, Brush Script, Courier New and Comic Sans ? Thankfully there's a site called better fonts, which has more than 10,000 free fonts. Once you have a peek at the ginormous selection, I swear you'll be hooked!

To learn how to post your favorite sites to the Website of the Day group, just

I know that this long list looks scary, but trust me, once you get the hang of it, it'll be a snap the second time around.

  1. First of all, join the Website of the Day group
  2. Click "Create and Share!" on the left hand side
  3. Choose "Blog"
  4. Give your photo a Title
  5. Leave the category as "general"
  6. Change the channel to "technology and gadgets"
  7. Add keyword(s) (for example mine for this photo was "Website of the Day")
  8. Click on the "Add Image" link below the "body" box
  9. A popup window will happen - click on "Browse" to find your image on your computer
  10. Once you have the image chosen, click "Submit"
  11. The popup will show you your image, choose size: "normal" - if you want, you can give it a title (which will show up as a caption)
  12. Click "Insert" and the popup will go away
  13. Your "body" box will now have some text in it. Leave it as is. If you want to add some text before the picture telling me why you love the website, do it before the code that has appeared.
  14. Click Submit

So join the Website of the Day group and share information about all of your favorite sites! Yours just might end up on the geeksugar homepage!

Ok, ok, another free font site. I agree with rbex: dafont. However if you want to see some really great fonts that are free, these are definitely display faces, check out Lots of great free fonts and the retail fonts are very affordable and many include the entire family.

fonts are fun stuff.
rbex rbex 10 years is great too! Dali- I don't understand. Are you saying you use standard fonts for everything? What if you're designing a brochure or newsletter... or website? The standard fonts can get pretty boring (depending on your subject). It's all about the Typography! :)

The free sites do sometimes give you a little different style, but I only use them for something simple that can be outlined in Illustrator or rasterized in Photoshop because if you use them in a layout program as a font they sometimes come out bitmapped during final output.

oh my... where do I start. I will say this, if you are bored of your artistic, well thought out and planned music do you go out and collect demo tapes at the club just because it's free? Comic Sans makes me gag but the others are standard for a reason.
