The ability to use text with your Cricut is so important. After all, most of us will have a project that we want to apply the text to at some point! While Cricut does have some free fonts and paid, of course, there are times you may want to add your own. Adding your own fonts is super easy, but the question is, where do I find the best free fonts for Cricut?

Fonts are the magic glue that holds most designs together. Fonts have the power to invoke the overall feeling of a design, from jagged, sharp corners for a bold effect to soft curves or bubble typography for a sense of fun; choosing the right font pair or trio is sometimes overwhelming.

So here’s the thing: learning the art of mixing fonts takes some patience and rules of practice. Let’s cover the keys to success for the best font marriages.

In this post, I will give you 30+ of the best free Cricut fonts perfect for cutting machine crafts as well as 30 of the best-paid fonts!

I’ve used 90% of the fonts on this page, so I can attest to the fact that they are AMAZING!

How to Pair Fonts for SVG Designs

Before I list all of my favorite fonts, let’s chat about how to match and pair fonts so the design works well together. We’ve all done it: purchase or download a ton of gorgeous font designs but then we get stumped on what fonts pair well together. There are a few rules of picking a match made in font heaven for a synergistic design.

When Pairing Fonts Go Easy on the Variety

Simple is always superior to busyness. If you go too crazy with mixing more than 2 or 3 complimenting fonts, the chaos of the design will confuse the feeling you are trying to invoke in the viewer.

Pair Fonts with Opposite Styles

Opposites attract – this is true for fonts, too! Mix your font counterparts for a complementary duo. Statement novelty headline fonts like this Sorinka playful print, pair best with thinner scripted fonts like this Apple Butter skinny font.

Highlight a Word with Your Font Choice

Pick a focus word/point. Choosing a piece of the phrase or a single word that you want the viewer’s eye drawn to – this will help you determine which font is best. Generally, thick script fonts or fun bold prints are best for focus words.
