Hey guys, Im recreating a sign for a skatepark this week and was wondering if i could get some good suggestions on fonts to use.

Im not going for grungy.
Just clean and readable.


Thanks guys!

Hey :)

Do you have a budget for this sign? Are you looking for paid commercial fonts or free fonts?

Frutiger is a popular font used for signage — it's clean and readable

No real budget, but I usually stick with free resources. However, I will have to look into frutiger when I get home. Is it a paid font?

Yeah, Frutiger is a paid font, but not very expensive if you only need 1 weight: $29 for 1 license.

Some free choices from Google fonts that you can look through: Gudea, Canatarell, and Signika.

I'm so sorry....I meant to say this was helpful, but I'm on my phone and missed the arrow.
You have been extremely helpful! I apologize.

I don't ever use google fonts...I should look into that.
Thanks again!
