10 Best Decorative Embellishment Fonts (commercial use dingbats)
We’re super excited to share this group of 10 free decorative embellishment dingbats today! This beautiful collection of printer’s ornaments, swashes, engraved embellishments, and frames is totally free for download (see the links below) and all are commercial use okay (triple check the font files to be sure).
So what’s a dingbat? These font files are installed and work like the other fonts we’ve shared, except that each letter you type on the keyboard corresponds to an image. These fonts are especially fun because each file usually has 10-60 individual images in the one font file! The sample graphics on the image below are just a small sampling of the images each font contains.
1. Floralia by Manfred Klein Fonteria
2. WWFlakes by WindWalker64
3. Nymphette by Lauren Thompson
4. Faux Snow by AEnigma Fonts
5. IM Fell Flowers 1 by Igino Marini
6. Designs3 by Sassy Graphics
7. DLDesignsFour by Destiny’s Designs
8. Kalocsai Flowers by Levi Halmos
9. Lots of Frames by Darrian Lynx
10. Darrians Frames by Darrian Lynx
We were waiting all year for the right time to share this group. Now that the holiday season is in full swing and you may be working on cards, tags, and stationary, these delicate images work especially well. I’ve used these fonts in holiday cards, logos, ads, and even made unique graphics by combining the font images themselves! I will show you more of what you can do with these types of fonts later this month, but for now, have fun playing with these pretties!
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.
Welcome, I’m so glad you’re here! Browse around to find thousands of Stock Images that you can use in your projects or designs! Need more info about my site? Try my FAQ page.

I’m a huge fan of yours! 🙂 THANK YOU for making the note about commercial use. I think with the explosive growth of internet/social media use, many people think that if they find something online that it’s free for all to use however they wish.

Mary the link in the post is the one I used to download it (I have a PC though). You can also try these sites which have it too:
