My 20 Most Favorite Halloween Fonts!




I am a font addict on any normal day... but when a holiday comes around, I turn into a crazed FONT FREAK.  It's unnatural, I know... but I can't contain myself.  Some people collect stamps or coins, I collect fonts.  If you are planning to create any type of Halloween craft, invite or handout... the following 21 fonts are MUST HAVES for your font collection.  Each is free & below I've listed links so you can download them too!  HAVE FUN!

{PS... I'm working on a SPOOKY Subway Art & October Menu Planner with these fonts & I can't wait to show you!}


NEED HELP INSTALLING NEW FONTS?
Everyone's computer is different... but here's how I do it on mine, I'm a PC:
  1. "Click" on the font you want and a download box will pop up. Click "Save" (I usually choose to save it directly to my desktop. That way, it doesn't get lost in the abyss of my C: drive). 
  2. Then, to "install" it, open and extract the zip file (point your cursor on the file, right click and choose "Extract File")
  3. A new file folder (without a zipper) will appear on your desktop. Open that folder, then copy or "drag and drop" the actual “TrueType” font file into your Windows Font Folder. You should be able to find your font folder at: C:/Windows/Font
  4. Once a font file is saved into your Windows Font folder... it is essentially, "installed" and should be available to use in any program on your computer! YIPPEEE!

Way fun Colette! You are so cute about your font addiction. I too love a nice font. I love that Wizards Magic one you showed above. Can you tell me where I can find it?
