Simply the best "Buffied" font. A free horror font that resembles the lettering used for the 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' TV series.

"This font is freeware for non commercial use."

That looks great, the artist did a good job.

This is spiffy, the font looks great, but you might want to edit to mention that it's for PCs only. I realize we Mac-users are a minority, but if you prick us, do we not bleed?
It's just a ttf file (TrueType font) so it should work fine on any TrueType supporting system.
It should work for Mac ... if it doesn't, you can get the same font from, that's where I got mine. Gotta love Shylock/Mac quotes though, right?
Hey, thanks KernelIM, and an Anonymous Source (a non-member) emailed me as well that it should work on just fine on my Mac. (I have the idea of my PostScript needs stuck in my head from earlier days of ripping type to output it at a service bureau or at the printers. Now with PDFs, it just doesn't matter.)

So I shall give it a whirl, and I thank you both...

(ETA: thanks also, buffy_kitten *grin*)

(whoops, unclosed bold tag, I think... closing now)
Just a bit more info, according to, put the ttf in /Library/Fonts in OS X.

Also, I hear Mac users do bleed, but they bleed aqua colored blood... ;)
I do like the final line of the download disclaimer:

8. You may definitely not eat, chew, sleep with, cook, slice, dice, barter, shop, snort, inject, lick or wear this font. Any mental, health or legal problems that will arise from attempted use in mentioned fashion are your problems. I don't want to know, or hear, about your fetishes.

That's awesome, I might use it for something creative one day! :-)
I've tried to use a specialized font before but I must be unaware of which folder on my PC to download it into. Can anyone help? I might try to use it on my own forum but it never seems to work. Thx.
Very good font. Shame that it's non-commercial; I would have loved to have been able to use it for lettering.
Heh, check out item #8 in the "Conditions of Use" section of the text file that accompanies the font.

ETA: Ugh, sorry. I should read other people's posts first!
