    Great idea – a font is one of those things people forget about when designing invitations etc. until they need to pick one and once you start playing with different ones you realize that each has a ‘voice’ or ‘feel’ of its own… and then the options are endless!

    Thanks for posting this! I work in event planning, so any fresh takes on fonts/invite design are always welcome. Saissant (#40) is fantastic, as are Bodoni At Home (#9) and Bookeyed Susan (#10). Also, if you get into the nitty gritty of the font websites, many of them offer deals on fonts if downloaded during particular months or for if the font is only for ‘personal’ use. Happy hunting!

    This is fantastic! I work at a paper/invitation shop and I love all of the suggestions. Bookeyed Susan I’ve seen around, but never had the name for, so many thanks! For those looking at Carolyna Pro Black, there are thinner versions, and it’s a great font for addressing if you want the calligraphy look with out breaking the bank :)

    Wowwowowowowow, this is a gorgeous font roundup! I’m honored to have mine featured among them (#45).

    To the folks wondering about the cost of fonts, obviously DA Font is a great resource if you don’t have the budget for a font costing more than a couple bucks. However! When you pay for a font your dollars go towards ensuring glyphs that might not be included in a free font, as well as additional work on how the font types out. Plus you’re (normally) supporting the person who worked on designing it. So if you have the money you should considering buying a font!

    I promise I’m not knocking free fonts, though! They’re fantastically useful and I’m always appreciative of the folks who put up their hard work for free.
