Searching Font Spy

You can search through free and commercial fonts by using a standard search or you can use advanced search functions.

Search by tags by using a hashtag in front of the tag. For example #free will only show free fonts. #sans-serif will show sans serif fonts. You can combine tag searches and regular searches.

You can also exclude tags by using an exclamation point before the tag. For example !free will only show fonts that cost money. !sans-serif will not show any sans serif fonts.

You can set you preview text in your search, just include brackets around the text. For example [ABCDE] in your search will set the font sample text to be "ABCDE".

Find all free sans serif grunge fonts using "Rock n Roll" as the preview text with this search #free #sans-serif #grunge [ Rock n Roll ].
