Buffied: Take a stab at Halloween with this free font

  • Generic Company Place Holder Buffied

Even if you've never seen the show that inspired Graham Meade of GemFonts to create this font,  Buffied is delightfully shiver-inducing, without knocking you over the head with blood, guts, or obvious Halloween imagery.

It's possible the Buffied TrueType outlines font was originally penned by a vampire with a quill and ink, but it was certainly a refined vamp, one well-schooled in calligraphy and artistic flair.

The letters in Buffied are well-balanced, making them relatively easy to read for such a stylized font. Even so, any smaller than 36 points, and Buffied begins to become illegible. Buffied includes all upper and lowercase glyphs, plus numbers, common punctuation, a few international characters (for example, letters with grave, tilde, and circumflex accents). This version also includes alternates for six letters (lowercase A, F, S, O, U and E).

Buffied is free for personal use. Commercial use is not allowed without contacting Graham Meade.

Note: The "Try it for free" button on the Product Information page takes you to the vendor's site, where you can download the latest version of the software.
