Fonts I Love

So, I'm a bit of a font snob. Nothing compared to my friends Mel or Julie, but I definitely know what I like and what I hate. A couple weeks ago my hubby and I were watching "Shark Tank" and a group of guys were trying to get the sharks to invest in their product and I said "How are they supposed to be taken seriously when they're using 'comic sans' for all of their branding?" Tony's response: "What's a comic sans?"




Needless to say I'm not a fan of comic sans. Here are a few fonts I am a fan of, though. All but one are free.





You can find them all here:

Clipper * Matilde * Baronese * Carolyna Curvy * Ostrich * Antrokas * Neo Retro Draw * La Portenia de la Boca * Mesh Stitch * Roskrift Clean * Simon Script * Treehouse * Ferrica * Jenna Sue

All of my favorite (non-free) fonts come from this shop: Emily Lime Design. Gorgeous, right? What are some of your favorite fonts?

Oh I love this post! I also cannot stand the use of comic sans...maybe bc all school newsletters come home in that font?

Thanks for the link to the pretty ones! With the loss of picnic I need some new usables!
