font-journal is a freeware and shareware TrueType (.ttf) font repository and catalog. All fonts should be free to use for personal use (contact us if you have any concerns). Please check for any further license information documentation included in any archive (presented for your convenience when possible in font preview mode). Some freeware and shareware font designers/studios only offer demos as freeware and may require that a user register or obtain a license in exchange for the full font. Many will require a commercial license if the font is not for personal use. Use of this site requires the user agrees to follow or obtain said font use license, if any such license is required.
The TTF fonts in these archives are Windows/Linux PC platform fonts, though some archives include the font in other formats (Mac TrueType, PC PostScript Type 1, Mac PostScript Type 1, PC OpenType, Mac OpenType, PC Multiple Masters or Mac Multiple Masters). Mac users will need to convert the PC TrueType fonts over to Mac TrueType for their platform if a Mac format version is not included with the archive. This can easily be done using TTConverter, a freeware utility for the Mac (Download TTConverter for the Mac). Or optionally, you can install Font Forge...
Ever wanted to design your own fonts? Check out Font Forge, a freeware outline font creation and conversion tool by George Williams which has been ported to run on multiple platforms including Unix/Linux, Max, MS/Windows and more, with the source available for other ports. Font Forge supports creating your own postscript, truetype, opentype, cid-keyed, multi-master, cff, svg and bitmap (bdf, FON, NFNT) fonts, or edit existing ones. Also lets you convert one format to another. FontForge includes support for many Macintosh font formats, as well.
