Nice font for free today
« on: August 12, 2016, 12:56:31 PM »
MyFonts is offering the Hoftype Carrara Light typeface for free today.

Carrara is a highly readable serif font that has twelve very nicely integrated styles suitable for web or print. This family has become one of my favorites since it's a font designed to be read.

Right now you can save about $50 and get the Light style for free. License is for both personal and commercial use - something that's rather unusual in the font freebie world.

Grab a copy here.

You do need to set up an account to get this freebie. And you also need to check out through their shopping cart, which some people may find off-putting. But you don't need to enter a credit card or other financial information to set up an account. And they don't ask for a financial info if the order is for something that's free. The reason they do this is because the license is issued through their checkout system, so they need everything to go through there to handle the compliance paperwork.

FWIW, an account is handy to have since MyFonts regularly offers free fonts, many if which are well worth getting. They have a nice newsletter that will keep you up to date on what they're doing. And they don't spam you. Highly recommended people to get to know if you like fonts..

Very nice.  Don't forget to check the desktop and webfont versions if you want to use it for both.  By default, only the desktop font is added.
