    Hi Jenni,

    Great set of fonts to add to any collection.

    The link for the first Alex Brush is incorrect, you need to remove the .png from the link.

    Thanks for this blog post.

    Thanks Phil, great spot. I’ve fixed it 🙂

  • K2 Designers


    Love the freebies! Thanks 🙂

  • Chris Hester


    The link to Alex Brush appears to *not* have been changed – I cannot access the font via the link – it still has .png at the end, which Phil says needs to be removed for it to work.

    Hi Chris, you might need to hit refresh.

  • Chris Hester


    It was the first time I had visited the page. I just tried refresh and it made no difference. Perhaps you are seeing a local version of the page others cannot?

    Hi Chris, I’d changed the image link but not the text one underneath. Should be fine now, thanks!

  • Chris Hester


    Thanks! I didn’t realise the image was also a link!

    Thanks Jenni! I really wanted new fonts for my webpage, this place happens to be the ideal I got varietyof font styles! Looking forward to more fonts!

    Thanks for the handwriting fonts – they are my favourite.

    Especially Alex Brush, but also Great Vibes, Qwigly, Ruthie and Contribute Free.

    But I also like Ostrich Sans Bold – its double lines are unusual and striking.
