Selecting the right font for a project is often the hardest part. Here are 25 fonts separated in two parts, paid with commercial use, and FREE with commercial use.
Please double check the license when you download these fonts, they are accurate at time of writing this list but pricing and licenses can change from time to time.
This list also includes some “color fonts” which CAN be used in Silhouette Studio Version 4.2 and above. They are really neat and worth a try.
Paid, with Commercial Use:

You may not be able to completely change the colors in Silhouette Studio like you could in Photoshop, but there are four styles to choose from when using it in Silhouette Studio. In the Wire 2 version for example, you can change the color of the “face” of the letters and the line color for a really neat effect $5

These are adorable fonts to use for kid’s or Valentines Day designs but some of them can be spendy. Paying for fonts is worth it, but I always save money on fonts by grabbing them when they are offered for free, as part of a bundle, or during a flash sale. If you want to build your font and design library, join my email list. I send out emails with free and cheap font and design resources.
I also mostly use money I get from using ibotta, the cash back app. Learn more about that here.
As I mentioned above, I really like fonts that include extras like glyphs, fluorishes, and ornaments. Fonts can be hiding extras under characters on your keyboard. Learn how to see all the characters in a basic font quickly and easily .
