Can You Download Fonts to Cricut?
Let me guess, you’re a font junkie like me. Or maybe you’re getting started and want to get some fonts stocked up.
At any rate, buying fonts can add up super quick. And crafting is an expensive enough hobby as is (don’t tell my hubby I just said that lol).
You have to pay for most Cricut fonts unless you’ve signed up for Cricut Access. (which is still a monthly fee)
You can download fonts to Cricut for your projects, so I want to show you my five favorite places to find free fonts you can use in Cricut Design Space.
Saving money on fonts means we can buy more vinyl and paper and make even more great things. Wooohoo!
If you need help with how to download fonts to Cricut see this post. You’ll get more text editing tips there too.
So let’s get to it.
The free fonts in the image are called 1) I love Glitter 2) Bain Flower 3) Magnolia Sky

A Warning About Free Fonts
Some fonts that are free are going to be for personal use only. That means you can use them for your own personal use.
You can’t make something with one of those personal use only fonts and legally sell it.
Other fonts that are free will include a commercial license. That means you can sell something you create with that font. But be sure to check the license terms.
You may only be able to sell one type of product. So say you use one of those free fonts to make and sell t-shirts. If you also use that font to make and sell towels, you may need to buy another license.
Bottom line, always check the license so you don’t get in trouble, and keep track of which fonts are personal use only.
Where Can I Download Fonts for Free?
There are several great sites that offer fonts for free that we can use with our Cricuts. My most favorite include a commercial license with the free font. And like I mentioned above, that means we can sell what we make with that font.
- One little-known secret is Creative Fabrica. They offer 300 days of freebies and they all come with a commercial license. Be sure to get notifications when you sign up so you don’t miss any of them.
By this time next year, you’ll have 300 commercial use fonts that you got free… SCORE! Click here to go to Creative Fabrica’s 300 days of freebies.
2. Another great place is Font Bundles. They have a great selection of free fonts you can use in Cricut Design Space. And they include a commercial license too.
Some of my all-time favorite fonts have come from Font Bundles. And they send a new free font every week. It’s my favorite email to get. Click the image below to check out their selection of free fonts and be sure to sign up to get their free font every week.
The Hungry Jpeg
3. The Hungry Jpeg is a great place to get a bunch of free fonts at once. They have free font bundles they offer and they include a commercial license as well. Plus once you sign up they’ll email you some more great freebies.
4. Creative Market offers 6 free fonts every week. There are usually some pretty good fonts. But sometimes the licenses are limited so be on the lookout for that.
5. Dafont.com is popular because they have so many free fonts. BUT a good chunk of them are free for personal use only.
Even if it lists the font as commercial use, be sure to check the license that comes in the font folder. I would hate to see anyone get in trouble.
Again if you need help downloading fonts and using them, see my post on Text Editing Tips in Cricut Design Space here.
