This month we have 8 favorite free picture fonts for you! Last winter we shared some favorite decorative embellishment fonts. So many of you loved that list, that we wanted to share more dingbat fonts.
For those of you new to the term “dingbat” — and I know what it sounds like 🙂 —–let me explain….. These are fonts, just like other fonts you download and install on your computer. The difference is that the letters, numbers, and symbols on your keyboard correspond to pictures instead. You resize and change the color of the pictures like you would a normal font.
Thanks for stopping by today and we hope you can incorporate these in to your holiday & design projects!
*A note about downloading, installing & using fonts: There are a lot of sites out there that offer free fonts. Some are set up mostly to display ads, and others take you to suspicious files & links. Even some legitimate sites run confusing ads that feature images that say “download”, when it’s for another product. While we don’t recommend one free font website over another, we have tried to link to the more straightforward sites to make finding the font easier for you. If you click on anything that looks like an application or .exe file, stop, it’s not what you want, and is probably malware. Don’t forget to follow the site’s specific directions to download and install the font. If you are a crafter and will be selling your work, please be sure to read any files or information that comes with the font. Some fonts have restrictions on the commercial use of a font for mass production quantities and on the sharing / redistribution of the font file itself.
