Charms dingbat font by Jess Latham
Charms is a simple dingbat font to add a little pizaz to your projects.
This font is OK to use for commercial, educational, charitable or personal uses. Please see the Freeware License included in README.TXT for license specifics. All forms of web embedding (except creation software) is allowed for Jess Latham's freeware fonts, so consider this a nice web font (#webfont), too. If you would like to say thanks for the free fonts, please consider purchasing any retail font from his collection at Font Spring or My Fonts. This is especially true if you use any freeware font for commercial use.
NOTE: A special license is needed for the following: creation software embedding. Contact Jess Latham for more info and specific questions (see DESIGNER section contact info, below).
This dingbat font is available in both TrueType or OpenType formats, which are both included in this archive, but you should only install one type of font format or the other, not both.
The OpenType fonts (with the '.otf' file extensions) have Postscript curves and instruction sets and may be more useful for graphic artists that use publishing software, save their ready to publish work in Portable Document File (PDF) format, or those with Postscript printers. The TrueType fonts (files with the '.ttf' extensions) are what most people would install if they are just using the fonts in a word processor program, in emails, online, or embedded in apps.
However, all that said, there shouldn't be a lot of OpenType features implemented in a dingbat font that I'm aware of, so there won't be a great deal of advantage with the OpenType version that I can see other than it offers a smaller file size.
This font is a simple hand drawn dingbat font featuring stars, arrows and charms to spruce up a document with graphics and give it a personal touch.
This font family lends itself well to art projects and posters, but could well be used professionally or in a graffiti style setting.
This archive was put together by Doug Peters for Font-Journal using the fonts, sample images and license (in the README.TXT) directly downloaded from Jess Latham's official website (linked below). It has been rearranged in that all the fonts have been moved to the root of the archive so that they are all viewable in the Font-Journal.com online font repository catalog which only displays the contents of the root (in order to reduce resources and processing power on the server). This text has been added to document what's known about the font, the designer, the license, and offer relevant links to these sources.

Commercial use is OK (even as a web font).
This font was originally released by Jess Latham as Charms BV from Blue Vinyl Fonts:
But that version was a 'Personal Use Only' font.

I also design fonts myself. I am setting up LastNational.com to feature some of the fonts I have created, but as of this writing & updating this archive, I'm still working on getting that website updated. Still, you can find most of them on my Font-Journal.com font repository, if you look me up:
