Default Where do you buy your fonts?
I'm doing a job that requires a specific font. I found it on fonts.com but unfortunately $25 for the three letters that I need is a little steep. I'm just checking to see if there are other resources out there.

I use http://www.searchfreefonts.com/ - it doesn't always have what you need, but it's always worth a try!

What font do you need? Perhaps I have it in my arsenal or I could find it for you.

I'm heading to bed now, but I'll check searchfree in the morning.

Jules, Davida D is what I'm looking for.

Thanks for the replies.

I checked a couple of font sites and it doesn't appear that this would be a free font anywhere. The lowest price I found was $20.

The other option would be to go to What the Font? and upload an image of a word with this font and they will give you some other similar fonts as options which might lead you to a free one that is similar enough to use.

Thanks for the replies.
This one is pretty close (the 3rd one down):

http://www.searchfreefonts.com/font-list/d5.htm

I get a lot of fonts from this site (as mentioned by Sharyn, too).

Kimberley, thanks for "What the Font". That's going to come in SO handy.
Jules, that's perfect. Thanks so much for finding it for me.

You guys ROCK!
