looking for the right font is been a headache for me. when I look one I kinda like then I have to read the copyright from the author. sometimes i find that confusing and I donĀ“t have a clear idea on whether I can use it or not. can we use the fonts available on our computers like; Arial, Arial black etc without any problem?

is there a list of fonts that we can use in items that we might think of make to sell here?

I’ll give you some links for the fonts that I use for my work.

http://www.google.com/fonts
http://www.fontsquirrel.com/
http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/free-fonts-for-commercial-personal-use/

Those should be enough fonts to get you by. Really, almost all of my fonts are just the ones I got from Font Squirrel. They have a pretty big variety. Hope this helps a bit!

Edit: Demorfoza always beating me to the punch! :D

Yes, fonts like Arial can be used in commercial projects. Here you have a nice collection of free fonts http://www.fontsquirrel.com/ and http://www.dafont.com/. Anyway make sure that the fonts are marked as free for comercial use. On dafont.com you will find a lot of Free for personal use fonts, well you cant use them in projects for envato marketplaces

Beware though, many of Hongkiat’s fonts isn’t free for commercial use, just personal. You need to check their licenses carefully.
Google looks better, but Fontsquirrel is unbeatable for me ;)

My advice…. not that this is a foolproof system.

But checkout the top authors, and look at what fonts they are using. Find some nice ones, and whoopydoo away you go.

Oh yeah, that’s a great idea. Didn’t even think of that. And yeah, only some of those fonts from Hongkiat’s blog post are commercial, but they’ll give the details in the description.
