Download Free Cursive Handwriting Fonts From Dafont.com
Dafont is one of my favorite websites to go to whenever I am looking for a new font to use. It has more options to choose from as compared to Google fonts but you do have to make sure that you are not infringing anyone’s copyright while using their fonts.
There are beautiful cursive fonts you can download and use from Dafont. You can enter the word that you will be using the cursive font for to quickly preview how the text will look like and download them on basis of that.
Go to Dafont.com and choose the category of font you are looking for. You probably won’t find a specific section for cursive fonts but you can search for cursive in the search bar if you prefer.
I usually choose the Calligraphy section which has lots of cool cursive fonts.
Once a type is selected, enter a word to get a feel of how the font will look like once installed and used in your project in the “Preview” holder and click “Submit”.
Go through the list and look for the font that you would like to download.
Please make sure you look at the license of usage on these fonts before downloading and using them.
