    I love free fonts!

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      i used to feel that way but there are sooooo many terrible ones it makes me very wary of downloading any. this one’s good though.

  • http://www.shotsringout.com Brian

    I guess I should have clarified. I love quality free fonts. There are definitely a shit ton of free fonts and most of them suck :) Thanks for wading through the muck and finding us a winner!

    This font reminds me of the writing exercises little kids (including myself, last time – I still remember!) do in school, where they have to trace the dotted lines of each alphabet so they can learn to write the letter correctly. 😀
    I like it dashed!

    Often is quite nice, but do take note of the license before using it.

    THIS is the BEST free font of 2008?!? All the others must have REALLY sucked. Seriously, not sure what the big deal is with this font. I would never use this, and no-one in my design studio would either. OFTEN font was better than this one…

    haha so angry, thanks for your input

    I wonder if DB stands for Deuche Bag.

  • DB

    Brian, it stands for DOUCHE Bag (not “DEUCHE”). And in regards to the font, I suppose it’s not TOO bad and perhaps could be used for… No, it really is just awful.

    DB, what design studio do you work for out of curiosity?
