Where to find Halloween fonts for Cricut

My favourite place to download Halloween fonts is Creative Fabrica.

Browse Halloween fonts

I have their monthly subscription which means that I can download as many of their fonts, SVGs or graphics as I want, without paying an extra.

I highly recommend the subscription, but if you don’t want to commit to that then you can purchase all these Halloween fonts separately for a small one-off fee.

Here are a list of all the fonts I used in my video in case you want to use the exact same ones.

I’ll put the word that I typed onto my subway sign first, and then link the name of the font to where you can download it.

Phew, that sure was a long list!

I hope that you enjoy this video on how to use text and fonts in Design Space.

It is a bit on the longer side, but it covers a lot 😀
