You are here, in the most suitable place for inspiration and artistic creation with free calligraphy fonts, for personal or commercial projects.
Calligraphic writing is an elegant cursive font perfect for graphic applications such as wedding invitations or any other festive event, posters with retro images, commercials, product presentation clips, movie generics, fashion presentation events, T-shirt prints and more. Even if we do not use this handwriting frequently, we still need to be prepared with such a list of calligraphy fonts, provided free of charge by their authors. An emergency for typography can happen at any time.
This article comes to the aid of graphic designers who urgently need such writing, sparing them a tiring search over the Internet. Although we have carefully selected these calligraphy letters from secure sources, each user should make their verification (to their author) to be sure of their use in commercial projects. There are many specialized sites in this field that display the free use of the creations of many artists for advertising purposes only. Therefore, when you want to download the letters, you receive a message that says that you have free only for personal use. For commercial use, you will see a polite invitation to buy the license. You can encounter such situations even on the sites of the authors, also used to attract as many visitors and potential customers.
Now, let’s be serious, for a project where you want to make sales, I think it’s good to have a license. The licensed version for commercial use is always more complete and more secure than the free version.
License fees are usually reasonable, depending on how you want to sell your work. It is true that for a small project, for example – commercial promotion, you can try the free version. In this case, I think it is nice to reward the artist with a small donation.
In my web searches, I have come across many artists who offer free fonts. One of them, especially noted by me, is Dieter Steffmann, a font designer with an imposing activity, both for correcting many fonts from the public domain and for composing other new free script fonts. It is commendable he can do this. This artist and many others, who do the same, deserve, of course, a greeting of respect from each user. For more details of his activity see the following link: https://www.1001fonts.com/users/steffmann/
