Font FAQ

Are the fonts really free?


Yes! The fonts are free for personal use. Feel free to credit @kevinandamanda. If you would like to help support this site so I can create new fonts for you, please feel free to donate here!


Do you have a commercial use license?


Please see the Terms of Use here.


How do I use the fonts?


First, be sure you have downloaded and installed them correctly by carefully following these directions. Then they will show up in the font drop down box of your favorite program– like Word or Photoshop.

You can also use the fonts on your Blogger/Blogspot blog!! Here’s how. :)


I followed the directions but it’s still not working.


I’m so sorry about that! The fonts are just standard truetype fonts — nothing special — and I can assure you that when correctly installed, the fonts do work in all programs on Mac OSX and Windows. But if it’s not working for you, it’s likely a problem with your computer or operating system. Unfortunately without seeing your computer in person, there’s really no way to know what the problem could be. If you are receiving a specific error message,  try typing the exact message you get into Google. You can also post your question in a tech support forum where the computer geniuses hang out! :)


When I try to use a font, the top and bottom are being cut off.


It’s possible you have an old version of the font. Please delete that font and download the newest version from here: Fonts for Peas or here: Free Scrapbook Fonts.


What program do you use to make fonts?


Font Creator Pro

How did the “Fonts for Peas” get their name?


I have always loved handwriting. The first computer disc I ever bought was a disc with 300 handwriting fonts. It was $20, and I saved my babysitting money for weeks to buy it! Once I learned there was a program where you could *make your own* handwriting fonts, I knew I had to do it. I had always wanted my handwriting as a font. I started asking everyone I knew to write their alphabet for me so I could turn it into a font. But that wasn’t enough- I wanted more! :) I posted on the message board “Two Peas in a Bucket” asking people to send me their handwriting and I would send them a font back for free. I got so many wonderful samples, I knew I had to share the fonts I’d made with others who loved fonts just as much as I did. I created the site “Fonts for Peas” as a way to share those fonts back. I still love making and sharing these fonts freely today!

Hi Amanda! I love your fonts and i wanted to ask you a question.How long does it take for you to make a font? Thank You!


Kathy December 21, 2011 at 3:06 pm

I work at a school and we are looking for a font to use that looks like the way Handwriting without tears makes their letters. We would like to use it to make labels and such for classroom shelves. Do you have anything that makes an “a” look like a circle with a line by the side? Please let me know, otherwise, thank you anyway, these others are helpful too.

I love the fonts…Thanks!
But I can’t figure out how to do the cute signs that seem to be included with certain fonts. Is there somewhere that tells you the alt #? thanks!!


Leslie January 11, 2012 at 8:21 am

Hi Amanda!!!

What font did you use to write the title “Pea Snoflake-Doodles”??

I love it and can’t find it anywhere!!



Sydney January 16, 2012 at 4:22 pm

I’m not sure if this has happened to anyone else (I’m in a rush right now and don’t have time to read the comments- sorry!) but on many of the fonts that I have downloaded, I can’t see the numbers! So I usually have to write out the number, which is aggravating… How can I fix it?!? Or, has this happened to anyone else?!?


Lindsay April 3, 2013 at 11:24 pm

It’s the opposite for me! I can ONLY see the numbers

Amanda April 3, 2013 at 11:30 pm

On a Mac, you can see the full font preview in Font Book if you use Repertoire or Custom mode. For some reason Mac changed something in the latest update and now some fonts are having trouble displaying properly on the Sample setting. Hoping they fix it soon. :) Hope this helps!

andrea January 27, 2012 at 1:10 am

Marilyn January 29, 2012 at 1:08 pm

I have used one of your fonts (hosted on for a long time on my blog (Google blogger) . Just this week the font no longer shows up. . .do you know why this might happen?

Thanks so much!


Amy February 1, 2012 at 7:29 pm

I added your button to my new blog and am looking forward to using your fonts on some Valentines for my shop* and of course for my preschooler’s Valentine exchange :) LOVE your idea of collecting handwriting and turning it into fonts, they are super cute! XO


Carrie February 9, 2012 at 1:14 pm

Luv, luv, luv your website. Thanks for the wonderful fonts. How do I use the doodles? I am using a Mac. I get the letter instead of the doodle.


Sandra February 16, 2012 at 9:41 pm

how do I use the doodles? how do they work?


Marie Christine March 11, 2012 at 8:10 pm

Hello amanda.

I’m french. Sorry for my language.
If I understand well, it’s possible to have letters with accents.
“You may write any extra characters on their own line, after everything else. :)”
I have to put the letters with accents in a last line, at the bottom of the page.
Is there an order ? Which ?
Super, I will be able to right my ask for job handwriting.
Thank you.

Bonjour Amanda,
Si je comprends bien,
il est possible d’écrire en français car les accents sont disponibles..
Il faut écrire les lettres avec les accents en fin de page. Mais y a-t’il un ordre ?
Génial, je vais pouvoir faire mes demandes d’emploi manuscrites.
Merci Amanda

Lori Torrence June 6, 2012 at 7:50 pm

I’m looking for a font that is similar to the Pop Rocks Candy logo! It kind of looks like your title for your blog site…Fonts for Peas. Where can I find that one or do you recommend another? thanks so much!!


Debby June 17, 2012 at 11:49 am

Hey guys!

Thanks so much!


Arlene July 7, 2012 at 12:01 am

Can your fonts be downloaded to a Mac?
Thanks —


Arlene July 7, 2012 at 2:53 pm

Figured out the Mac question!


luanne February 18, 2013 at 9:20 pm

did you have a problem with the mac only wanting to download some of the fonts… I’m having issues with downloading them all they download but can’t get them to work.

Erin July 25, 2012 at 8:42 am


I have just discovered you through Dutchess Roz who has been raving about you… what font is your Kevin {&} Amanda font at the top of your website?

Thanks so much!!



marianto July 26, 2012 at 5:10 pm

greeting from Guatemala, I just discovered this wonderful website, I just love it! …I have the same question Erin does, what font is the one you used for you Kevin and Amanda title at the top of your website…!


j July 28, 2012 at 12:12 pm

i LooVeeee these fonts. are they copyright free? have an awesome day!


Julie August 12, 2012 at 10:17 am

I love your fonts. When I try to download them I get a window telling me I have to subscribe for $29.95, to WinZip. Is that true? Can’t I download the fonts without that program? If I click cancel on that popup message I get nothing and have not been able to download any fonts.

Thank you!


Andrea August 28, 2012 at 10:33 pm

Hi Amanda, i love your fonts, they all are awesome.
I want to know, what font did you use on the title ‘free fonts’?. Thank You!.


Leticia Gonzalez September 8, 2012 at 10:49 pm

Hello! I love your fonts!! I teach at a dual immersion school and often create documents in Spanish. I was wondering if you have any that offer extended characters?

Thank you!


Natalie Hart September 16, 2012 at 11:59 pm

Thank-you so much for such an awesome site, and for making my scrapbooking life so much easier. If you were here in person, I’d give you a great big hug – you really are a tremendous help!!

Is there any way to print out the font samples all together so that I can reference the printed list to find the one I want? At this point, I am making a sample list in word, but if I could just print it off your webpage, that would be cool and save me time of opening each one and hoping its the font I wanted. Just wondering?

Thank-you again for what you do :)


greta s September 19, 2012 at 9:54 pm

Hello……thanks for the free fonts…

Is it possible to download just one, instead of them all? Or is it a pkg deal?

Thanks :)


susan ryals October 18, 2012 at 12:44 pm

What do u cut your fonts out with?


sahra November 23, 2012 at 6:17 am

Thanks for your beautiful free fonts! I’m going to use them in short film I’m making.

Thank you!


Laurie Cerefice March 24, 2013 at 8:40 pm


I am a teacher in California, and I wanted to know if it is ok to use your fonts in a unit which I post on Teachers Pay Teachers? I would of course give you credit, I just couldn’t find anything on your website. Thank you SO much!


Júlia March 26, 2013 at 12:53 pm

Hey! Your fonts are awesome! I love your work. =)
I wonder if there are any Doodles fonts with fat kitties drawn, eyes shut with huge lashes (a liiittle bit like this: and a cute photographic camera. It’d be great!


Monica April 11, 2013 at 1:49 pm

Can I not use these fonts with Open Office???


Liesl Burnes April 17, 2013 at 7:16 am

I was wondering if you can take a writing sample and change it into a font. We are trying to make a decal for our nursery and my husband would love to turn his late fathers handwriting into a font for the decal. We have lots of samples, but of course not in the format we have seen for uploading into font creators! Is this anything that sounds possible to you? We would love it!


Marla Mae September 7, 2013 at 7:00 pm

Hey Amanda! I was wondering if you have any fonts available that have Greek letters? I’d like to have some cute fonts for my sorority.



Tamara August 4, 2014 at 3:42 pm

I have seen a font on a shirt that looked similar to Vera Bradley’s signature. Do you have a font close to that?? It was very nice and my high schooler would love it!!


Sintija November 11, 2016 at 6:38 am

Hey there! I wanted to double check with you – are your fonts completely free to use both for personal and commercial use? Thank you! :)


Chelsea September 14, 2017 at 1:45 pm

I was wondering the same thing!
I found the answer here:

Ammie Bradley July 9, 2018 at 6:05 pm

HI! I am a teacher and I was wondering if you had any fonts that represent the letters to use for secret code work. Like a apple b bird c cat d dog?

I could really use that!
