So here you get a curated list of the best free professional fonts that you can get to work within your business software, print designs and more. Installing a font is easy and it will appear on your favorite applications like say Microsoft Word, Photoshop, illustrator etc. For installing any font onto a website, we put up a custom fontface styles that go into your CSS stylesheet. Find it by scrolling down below.

Since it is impossible for us to pick the right font for you, the decision is completely yours depending on the requirements. We have included professional fonts for business letters and even script fonts which can give you more advanced placements in email signatures, invitations etc.

The things that may matter the most will be font size, letter spacing and line height. These components can make or break your font structure. I did a little research myself to make font composition and structure successful. And also found pairing fonts is a crucial part of any design. The good thing is US government has put together a list of font pairing styles for their own websites which we can use for our website designs as well. The typography section of US web Standards will give you more depth for these fields.

Typesetting for headings in titles and the description are essential as it gives the viewers to take in legible information. So have a balance in line height, letter spacing, and right font size. You will be all set to make designs pop out of the box.

  • Font Types
  • Font Styles
  • Compatibility

There are 3 types in this font collection you might need to know.

  1. Opentype Font, OTF (Supports mac and windows) – This is new and it can hold large no of characters, letters, digits & glyph.
  2. Truetype Font, TTF (Supports mac and windows) – Old, but still used widely.
  3. WOFF  (Supported by all modern browsers) – Compressed Opentype or Truetype font for web use.
  1. Cursive, Script, Calligraphy (handwriting fonts) – Create artistic business invitations, email signatures etc.
  2. Stencil, Geometric, Lines – Time & Date looks great with these typefaces.
  3. Serif and Sans Serif – Preferred for pairing, when one of them serves the heading, the other serves legible paragraphs.

Are there compatibility issues by using just one font format for your business ? What I think about modern day browsers is that, every one of them supports OTF, TTF, WOFF now.

Support On Office and Design Software

OpenType and TrueType fonts are fully Supported on all major applications related to business and design.

Support for TTF/OTF Fonts on Major Browsers

There is nothing to be worried about compatibility issues on modern web browsers. The cross-browser compatibility of these font types makes them very popular among web designers.

ttf oft support for major browsers
Truetype and OpenType support on Major Browsers
How to Font Install for a Website ?

Since you have locally downloaded the fonts, this below style format will help you register and call your OTF, TTF fonts.

    font-family: 'Diaria Light Pro';
    src:        url('fonts/diariapro-light-webfont.woff') format("woff"),
		url('fonts/diariapro-light-webfont.ttf') format("truetype"),
		url('fonts/diariapro-light-webfont.otf') format("opentype");
    font-weight: 400;
    font-style: normal;
}

body {
