Previously, I talked (read: rant) a lot about buying font packs with complete licenses. At the end of the day, you end up paying only a few cents for each font. But if even that looks out of your reach, I have these 26 beautiful fonts with commercial licenses and complete font families.
In no particular order:
1. One Day
One Day is a slim uppercase typeface designed by Nawras Moneer. It is fresh, modern, simple — it’s not too serious and has just the right amount of class.
This font deceives you with its simplicity. Once you start using it, you will begin to see all the details each letter comes with. Pelin Maravent and Gülsah Cansever are the designers behind this casual font.

This cute, cute font with a comic 3D look is designed by Iordanis Passas. Sky is the limit with this font, like literally.
Here is another 3D font with dark details. It comes with five different styles. Facunda is a tall, dark-edged, sans serif font designed by Bu.
If I had to use one font all my life, I would go with Alcubierre by Matt Ellis. It’s thin, straight, geometric but not harsh, sleek but not too sharp, its minimalist look can go a long way depending on how you use it.
This font, designed by Edu Oliveira, has a story behind it. The designer was inspired by the lettering on a wall in the streets of Limoeiro, his hometown. This no-nonsense font can be used in a number of ways!
This classic serif font is amazingly easy to pair. Athene comes with accents, numbers, and absolutely adorable lowercase style. The clean, geometric look goes perfect with minimalist, even corporate, designs.
It is an all-caps serif font with a handwritten feel. The detailing is absolutely spot on. You can see the ink getting thicker and thinner with the pressure of the hand in different letters. Love the inconsistency!
Petar Acanski designed this bold and bubbly brush typeface inspired by the hip hop culture and graffiti art. To maintain legibility and clarity, Acanski added a few variations to the font. You can download it from the link above.
11. Cute Punk
Cute Punk comes with three different weights. Accents are also available for the font. Depending on how you use it, you can take this and give it a retro spin or a K-Pop, bubblegum vibe.
See those easy curves? That is the mark of a quality font. It’s geometric yet it is soft, it is simple yet makes a statement. It is perfect!
Taking you to Tuscany’s vineyard (not even sure if they have those), the way this font curls up at the edges, it just makes you want to hit the download button.
Laura Worthington came up with Milkshake. It comes with a lot of bonuses, and eight alternatives to each character. It is like stealing!
IanMikraz Studio is behind Rainwood, a handmade brush font that comes with 232 glyph, 52 alternate characters, two stylistic alternates, standard ligatures, and more!
17. Verona Lotte
This hand-lettered brush font is the reason why hand-lettered fonts look so beautiful.
Zoom and see the inconsistency in letters, it does not look like a fake, made-up-to-look-like-handmade font. The roughness in the letters makes it ten times more elegant.
With varying thickness, subtle handmade detailing, and the slight curve in each letter, Salvador will be a constant favorite.
Made with a brush pen, Shellahera is a beautiful script font with a varying baseline. Lostvoltype also has a full-version of the font available.
This adorable, little script font comes in uppercase, lowercase, and ligatures. The flourishes and the defined kerning makes it a must-have font.
Joli is not everybody’s cup of tea. The sky-scraper-like structure of the font makes it a unique choice. It is extremely current and stylish. One can do wonders with it.
The unique thing about Kano is the geometric edges. Rather than looking serious and straightforward, Kano has a quirky feel to it. Full marks for innovation!
This sans serif font family comes with four weights. It is straight and geometric with round, softer edges. Works perfectly no matter what the scale is.
Another brush script typeface. It comes with rough edges that make the lettering look super authentic. It’s a bit on the bold side, still it manages to maintain an elegant and delicate look.
Reckless is a brush sans-serif typeface. This straight, slightly italic font is heavily textured. Thanks to Nadi Spasibenko, who is the designer behind this font.
Synthesia (or Flogreen as it shows up in the library) is a narrow looking sans serif font with rounded edges. It has a touch-of-vintage vibe and can be used in a number of ways.
