The Best Source for Free Teacher Fonts
My sister and I share a love of graphic design, photography, and typography. While I use that love to shape my design choices for resources, she’s turned hers into a business. I have great respect for her "eye" for detail, design choices, and professional opinion.
When I first started transforming my classroom materials into resources to sell, I spent a great deal of time looking for appropriate fonts for my student pages and covers. Most of what I used in the classroom was created using Century Gothic, and while I appreciated its clear type, I had tired of seeing it on every page I touched. Especially for my covers, I needed something eye-catching, but clear.
During a site wide sale on Teachers Pay Teachers, I stumbled upon KG Fonts. I was surprised to learn that I was familiar already with her fonts as they are commonly used in nationally recognized products and campaigns (such as Skittles, Silk Almond milk, Way Better Snacks, Ariana Grande's recent album cover, and more). Her store offered a wide variety of typefaces from kid-friendly letters to bold, stamped blocks.
Kimberly makes it incredibly easy and convenient for buyers to try out her fonts before purchasing. Every font is listed in her store free of charge for personal use. And her Commercial Use license is one of the least expensive I've found making her fonts incredibly affordable to use.
Kimberly Geswein is among my favorites for so many reasons. The kindness, generosity, and trust she exhibits in offering her resources completely free for personal use, the way she shares her faith by creating inspirational posters, her love of travel, and even her life mantra of "work less, travel more." I'm right there with her!
Perhaps you've seen Kimberly's fonts, but you may not know that she also has graphic elements perfect for use in your TPT products, such as paper packs, frames, and page borders. She has generously given me four prizes to pass along to you: Emily Frames, Jamie Frames, and two sets of Color Match Papers.
If you haven't already tried Kimberly's products, I hope that after entering to win, you will head to her store and give them a try. (Remember to leave lots of love in the form of feedback!)
