I am new and had a couple of questions.
1. Are we allowed to use Glyphs? If so, only from the font list or any like Zapf Dingbats or Wingdings 2, etc, is ok?
2. I don't have most of the fonts that are on font list. Where would be a good place to get them ? Are there any on the list that are free that I could get started with before having to buy them?
I am very excited to find this site and hoping to enter my first design challenge soon.
Thanks in advance,
Hi Arezo,Welcome to Minted! I look forward to seeing your designs. To be honest I'm not sure about your first question, so I'll focus on the second: there are many free fonts on the list! I've been meaning to put a list like this together for a while, so I'll try to get you started here. This list is not comprehensive (maybe others could add any I missed?) and I hope includes only fonts that are legally available for free download (I've tried to verify them all, but I could have made mistakes - if anyone thinks any of these downloads are illegal, please let me know and I'll remove it from the list).Here are some general free font resources. I've included the list of free minted fonts in the next comment because of character limits.

Welcome to Minted, Arezo!
WOW - thank you for sharing your font links, Madeline!
I think there may be some past discussions on fonts that may be helpful - if you search on the Forum (click "Search" top right between Categories and Account). I would try searching "font" "fonts" "free." But, I think Madeline's list may be more comprehensive than anything you will find!
I'm not sure about your glyph question - I would think that if you own the commercial rights to that font, then it would be okay.
Great List Madeline!! and welcome Arezo!
Thank you so much for the nice welcome! The feedback was very helpful.
Madeline, the list is fantastic. Thanks for taking the time. I did submit my first design yesterday and working on another one today. Let me know what you think:
I'm going to try to keep this list updated, so if anyone notices any dead or incorrect links or has anything to add to the list, feel free to let me know!
