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 don´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

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.
