The internet has plenty of free fonts to offer. These fonts are distributed for free, for a variety of reasons, such as: beginner designers who designed the fonts as part of a learning process, a commercial company or organization funded the creation of a free font, or designers who decided to distribute a typeface or weight for free as a method to market their other paid fonts.
Every font, and that includes free fonts, has an End User License Agreement (EULA), and it is very important to learn what type of things may or may not be done with a font. Although usage of the font is free, its copyright and distribution rights will often belong to the designer of the font. As a rule of thumb, if it doesn’t explicitly say you may use the font in the way you intend on using the font – don’t do it. Or simply contact that designer and ask them.
While most of our fonts are paid, we do have an entire section of free Hebrew fonts – experimental fonts, selected weights of existing fonts and fonts that may be downloaded for free for a limited time, so you should definitely bookmark this page and drop by every once in awhile.
Anyway, back to business: we’ve decided to organize all of the free fonts that are available out there, and selected the best ones in our opinion.
