WHERE TO FIND THE FONTS?

Before we go any further, you need to have a font ready to install. 

Now, you may already have a font to install or you maybe thinking where to find a font? Well, there are many free or paid sites which provides fonts that you can download or buy. 

Some popular sites where you can find fonts are dafont.com or creativemarket.com. You can also find free fonts at our store on store.ceirt.comAs a side note: don’t download from unknown sites, as they may contain viruses.

If you are planning on using the font commercially, check whether the font is royalty free and is allowed for commercial use. We have published an article on 40 Free Fonts For Commercial Use that will help you find a font that is allowed for commercial use and is FREE as well.
