How to Download all of those Fun Free Fonts!


One of the biggest topics I get comments and emails about is how to download fonts.

So I thought I would make things as easy as possible for all of you "visual learners" like me and do a quick tutorial to show you the whole process on how to install fonts.

So here we go!








Hope that helps clears up any questions you may have about the process!

Have fun with your new fonts!

    1. Did it show up in your word documents? Maybe try opening up the downloaded folder again if it didn't install.

      Let me know if that worked!

    3. What type of computer do you have? Mac is different than windows... so it may be that you have to download a different type of font file?

    4. Mine didn't show "install" either. I'm using a PC, once you save and open and the file, at the top there's a button that says "extract all files", click that and it will ask where you want to save it. It will open again, right click and choose "install". It should work and be available in Microsoft Word after that. Hope this helps : )

    1. No Problem! I know, I learned the hard way not to ever download a font that required some action. I make sure to always share completely free fonts. <3

  6. Found this through Pinterest and maybe I am crazy but your download link just keeps bringing me back to the page to show me how to download and install. I don't need tips on that I just need to know where the actual download button is. It is probably a "had it been a snake.." moment but I seriously don't see it.

    1. The "download" link you keep pressing is a link to a tutorial (this one actually) on how to download fonts. The actual download links are the text links beneath each picture. Hope that helps.

    1. It may be because your font size is too small, or you may have the color set as white? Or it could be an "uppercase only" font... Those are the only things I can think of. Hope it helps! XOXO

  9. I can't find some of the downloaded fonts in the picmonkey ("yours" button). Why is that?

    1. Sorry, I don't know why they aren't showing up. That's weird. Maybe check if Picmonkey has an FAQ about that?
