How To Use Famous Fonts
Only True Type fonts (.TTF) are offered on this site. True Type fonts do work with Mac OS X. If you want to use these fonts on an older Mac you need software to convert the TTF files to Mac. Sometimes the font manufacturer offers fonts in multiple versions - check their site to see if Mac versions are offered. Links are provided to font manufacturers where available.
All fonts are zipped; if you're not using Windows XP or Vista, you'll need WinZip or PKZip to access them. Windows users: Extract the fonts to your desktop, then open your Control Panel and go to "Fonts", the select File > Install New Font and in the next window navigate to the fonts on your desktop, select them, and select "Install". Mac OS X users: Open the font file and select "Install Font".
Some fonts are copyrighted and not permitted to be distributed freely. In this event, we have still displayed the font along with what it's famous for, but are not offering it for download. When possible, we provide a link to the manufacturer or somewhere else you can purchase the font in question. We do not offer fonts for download that do not contain specific information about the author, either in the font file itself or an accompanying "read me" file. Generic fonts with no author and/or copyright information will be identified only and will not be available for download.
These fonts have been gathered from the around the Internet and are presented as freeware or shareware. If you download a shareware font, please register. We encourage you to submit any fonts you don't see here (preferably with a sample telling what the font is used on, i.e. what tv show or product) by clicking here. We would also appreciate any fonts which are better or more exact versions than those posted.
Please do not email us asking for a specific font, to look for a specific font, or the name of a font. All fonts available are presented here and the ones we know of but can't find are listed at the bottom of each section.
Also, please do not send us copyrighted fonts that are not to be freely distributed, expecting them to be made available for download. If you send a such a font, please include the URL of the font's manufacturer. It is not fair to the font manufacturers to take their work that they are trying to sell and make it free for the public!
