    Free font?

    I’ve downloaded a font from dafont.com and want to use it for a catalogue. It doesn’t tell me how I can purchase it and I’m sure it wouldn’t be a free font (they usually state if a font is free/shareware etc). I posted on their forum asking and the same question, and according to someone there there’s no licence in the zip file which means it IS free.

    So what should I do, use it and hope for the best, or is there any way I can find out where to buy it from? I tried fonts.com and linotype.com, neither could find the font on their systems.

    The fonts on dafont usually ARE free. But it's good that you check to make sure. What i'd recommend:
    -Open the font file by double-clicking on it
    -Look in the font information, it will usually say the copyright
    -Google for the font name + the copyright name (ie. Monotype Mead Bold)
    you should be able to get information on whether the font is freeware, shareware or commercial
