If you love your digital bullet journal, fonts are a great way to spice up your designs and give you pages some extra flair. In this post, I’ll share my favorite free bujo fonts from four reputable online font shops, then later show you how to install the font on your iPad for free.

Designing your own layouts in a digital bullet journal is so satisfying. However, keeping your pencil from slipping around on the glass can get pretty frustrating. There are some solutions, in particular picking up a screen protector with a paper feel or practicing lettering directly on your iPad. But sometimes you just want a cool font for your headers, dates, or anything else you may be writing.

I have to admit, I’m a bit of a bullet journal fonts addict. Even though I’ve practiced my lettering for years, I still don’t love it. Besides, I usually find myself planning while laying in bed, sitting in the car, and just about any other weird place that I can carry my iPad. It’s very, very rare that I’m sitting up with an appropriate writing posture and at an actual table.

Because I spend most of my time lap-planning, my handwriting suffers. So I use handwriting based bujo fonts to cute-up my layouts, typing dates, headers, and days of the week.

Free Bullet Journal Fonts

20 fun & FREE digital bullet journal fonts plus simple instructions on how to install them onto your iPad.

Before you get started downloading every bujo font under the sun, I have two tips about downloading fonts.

Download from a reputable site

Firstly, it’s important to know that your fonts are safe. Downloading and installing fonts from random sites is never a good idea. These files can carry malicious software like malware, adware, spyware, and ransomware which can cause all kinds of problems. When searching for fonts, use reputable, well traveled, and well reviewed sites. If you land on a site that is giving away fonts for free and you wonder, “Is this one safe?” there are a few ways to find out.

  1. Before you even start browsing a site, if you get a warning from Chrome that the website is suspicious, stay away. Google is usually on top of safe browsing.
  2. Next up, check the URL. It should have https at the front. If anything else looks hinky, the website might be too. For example if you were trying to get to DaFont, clicked a link, and landed on a site called DaDaFont (this is not a real website, I made it up) which looked exactly like DaFont, but isn’t… well… that’s a red flag.
  3. If you notice that the website is just bizarre, don’t download from it. The wording is off, it reads like a robot wrote it, the ads are weird, it just seems strange. Furthermore, no matter how cute those bullet journal fonts are, be aware that it might not be safe.
  4. Last, if the website has zero or really bad reviews it’s best to let other people being the guinea pigs.

Some sites that I’ve used for years and never had any issue with are FontSpace, DaFont, FontSquirrel, Font Bundles, and Google Fonts, and there are certainly many more safe sites out there. But you don’t have to take my word for it.; you can certainly check the ones I recommend against the 4 conditions above.

Read the Terms of Use

Secondly, there are tons of amazing bullet journal fonts out there free for personal use. You can even find a lot of commercial use fonts for free – with and without credit required. I’d encourage anyone downloading free (or paid) fonts to read over the Terms of Use before downloading. Especially if you are planning on selling or giving away your templates.

Giving away printable or digital items you created is considered commercial use – even though you aren’t charging for it. So, please make sure you’re following the site or designer’s TOU. There are actual people working behind the scenes, creating these digital fonts, please respect their work.

Finally, it’s time to get to the good stuff. Below you’ll find twenty amazing, free bullet journal fonts. Each image includes a sample of the font with mixed letters, uppercase, then lowercase, plus name and description below the image. If you like the font, there is credit with a link from a reputable site under the graphic, so go ahead and grab it for your own digital bullet journal (just follow the download instructions on the site).

Disclaimer: At the time of this post, all of these fonts are available for free. However, from time to time publishers decide to change or remove their fonts. If the font you like is no longer available or no longer free, I’d encourage you to take a look at similar fonts from the same site, artist, or design company. Frequently, you’ll be able to find similar bullet journal fonts available.

Installing Your Bujo Font on iPad

For this tutorial, I am using iFont. This is a great app if you want to install a few bullet journaling fonts now and then for free. This is a demo of the free version, which shows a few inobtrusive ads and requires you to install 1 font at a time (so, if you are downloading multiple fonts, you’ll be repeating these steps multiple times).

If you’d like to install many new fonts – or if you’re upgrading your iPad and have to reinstall many fonts, I would recommend the $1.99 upgrade. I’ve been using iFont for about a year to install one or two at a time, but when my iPad kicked and had to be replaced, uploading fonts in bulk was key so I didn’t lose my mind repeating this 837 times!

*Note: During this process you will see multiple warnings about installing your new bullet journaling fonts. Font files can carry viruses, adware, and malware. See the above section about verifying reputable sites for more info.
