  1. Love these fonts! Thanks for posting this!

  2. Love it!!
    What’s the name of font of “Michelle” signature? Thanks!

  3. Hi! Great collection. I am also wondering what font you used for the heading on this (especially the font with the stroke in the middle. Thanks!

  4. Which font is your name in at the end of this page? Thanks!

  5. Thanks so much! Beautiful and original,

  6. merci pour le partage ! j’ai créé un lien ici :

  7. Thank you for posting this. But font Carolyna is not free :(

    • You’re welcome An! Unfortunately, Carolyna is not one of the free fonts, otherwise it would have been included in the artwork with the others. Even though it’s a paid font, it’s one of my favorites and I use it all the time. I have gotten many questions about the name of that font (since I use it in my signature in every post), which is why it’s included below the list of freebies. Stay tuned! Another list of beautiful free fonts will be released sometime soon. : )

  8. Is there a way to get carolyna pro and trend free??

    • Hi Lauren! I really wish there was! I use both of those fonts so often, I knew that it would be a worthwhile investment for me. The good news is, Trend has a bunch of different versions, and if you only need one or two of them, it can be more affordable. Hope you are able to enjoy the other free fonts!

  9. A friend referred me to your resource. Thank you for the information.

  10. Hi Michelle I am trying to use one of your free fonts for some of my invitations but have no idea how to do so. Can you walk me step by step please?

    • Hi Elena! Downloading new fonts is a pretty easy process. I’m not sure if you are using a Mac of PC (I’m a Mac girl), but after you download your font, it should end up in your “downloads” folder. If you aren’t sure, do a search on your computer for the name of the font you just downloaded. Once you have located it, double click on the file, and this should open your computer’s font application (I used Font Book). This should install it automatically. You may need to close and open the application you are using the font in (i.e. Microsoft Word, InDesign) before you get it to appear.

      I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions!

  11. Just to let you know Mensch is not free either (First Dance)…sad!

    • Hi Jenny! Just checked it out, and it looks like it is still free! :) There is a box for a donation for the font download if you choose to, but if not, just enter $0 for the amount, and it should download fine for you. Enjoy!

  12. I just want to say thank you for the fonts Michelle, thank you for taking the time and sharing them. :)

  13. can’t agree more… except for vag rounded. i’d replace that with helvetica rounded. more balanced and clean. personally i love gotham which works 7/10 times for me.

  14. Love the Carolyna Pro Black font. What font do you recommend to pair with it?
