While browsing in Whole Foods tonight, I was super surprised to find this line of @YumEarth snacks that use GelPen on their packaging. A big shout out to Yum Earth for their fun designs. I think they did a great job with their package design. The color schemes are playful and fun, and I especially like the little happy faces drawn on the fruits too!!

Good morning and happy Sunday! How about another free font download? It’s a handwritten Japanese (katakana and hiragana) and Latin typeface called KaoriGel. Named after and inspired by my dear friend from Chiba, Japan, this typeface is part of my GelPen series and was one of my first fonts. The Japanese characters are hiragana and katakana only. Sorry about the lack of kanji, but my Japanese is rather limited at this time. If you only use or need Latin characters this simple typeface would also be useful for captions and body text. You can download KaoriGel for free right here!
Hello there! This time I’d like to post my first font, created in 2012. It’s a handwriting font called GelPen. Since I really like writing on black paper with fluorescent and pastel gel pens it wasn’t too difficult to come up with this name. It’s probably not going into the font hall of fame but I think it has worked well in various applications I’ve seen it used in over the years, such as keyboard apps for phones, videos, whiteboard apps, comics, and business apps. I have really enjoyed seeing what people have done with this!
GelPen comes in three weights and is free to download. If you use any of my fonts for your projects, please feel free to let me know so I can give you a shout out on my Pinterest board!
Presenting a new dingbats font, Mandalesque! A collection of mandala-type illustrations for decorative projects. The complete character map can be viewed here on my Fontspace page. I’m really enjoying creating these types of fonts lately and I have a few more that are in progress. Hopefully I can get back to doing more once the craziness of the holidays are over. Until then, I hope you enjoy this. And please, if you ever have any problems with any of my fonts please feel free to contact me anytime! Happy holidays!!
This is GelDotica again but with lowercase letters. I added lowercase after I had already released the GelDotica caps fonts to other sites online (which means good luck rescinding them all). I realize it’s pretty redundant having fonts that are only caps. Eventually they will be reorganized, but until then, here are some lowercase options! Next time I’ll post GelDotica plain-same font but without the dots in the Os. It was quite the controversy in my household. Those dots were added last and I thought they were the icing on the font cake. Showed it to DH and he said he liked it without the dots better. Showed DS and (without knowing there was a previous conversation) he said, “I like the dots in the Os!” So now there’s both. Thanks for visiting!
Just released! Olives.
Just finished up the latest font I was working on. It’s called Olives which is kind of funny considering I’ve never liked those things. Anyway it works best for larger display text. I’m thinking about creating a version without the dots that would be more appropriate as body text. You can download Olives right here.
Another Pajama Pants font
Hi there! I’m posting another Pajama Pants font. This one is a lighter weight font. It would be a good choice for smaller text. Like the original Pajama Pants it’s a little on the cartoony side but that would work well for certain applications. The link also contains Pajama Pants Bold.
Good morning! Well, it’s ridiculously early in the morning because I wanted to check out the Perseids meteor shower. A beautiful cloudless sky but I only saw three meteors in the half hour I was out there. Anyway I figured since I’m up in my pajamas I might as well post one of my latest fonts, called Pajama Pants. It’s a cartoon/comic/pen and ink type of font. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do, and I also hope that if you went out to check out the celestial show that you had either a better view or better timing than I did! Happy Friday!
Bendy Straw Font of the Day
Good morning!! I have a new font for you today called Bendy Straw, named that for hopefully obvious reasons. I hope you like it! Bendy Straw can be downloaded here as well as on fontspace.com. Thanks and enjoy the day before Monday!
Font of the Day-Flatstock
Happy Friday!! I thought it would never get here! Today’s font is called Flatstock. It has kind of a bendy sheet metal look. I hope you like it! Flatstock can be downloaded here as well as on fontspace.com. Have a great weekend!
Font of the Day-Midnight Constellations
Good morning! Here we have a whimsical star studded font. Sure-it’s not appropriate for everyday documents and text but it would work well in the right kind of project. This one is only a few days old and as of this writing hasn’t been posted to the main page of Sharasfonts.com, but you can download Midnight Constellations right here. Have a great day and thank you for stopping by!
Staff Meeting Font of the Day
Staff Meeting has all the circles in the text filled in like you might if you were bored at a staff meeting and doodling on a handout. There are three different fonts in this family, Staff Meeting, Quick Staff Meeting, and Really Quick Staff meeting, with the filled in circles getting messier and messier. It’s ready to download!
Cat Cafe ネコカフェフォント
Hi there! Another free font download for you! This one is one of my favorites. It’s a Japanese (katakana and hiragana) and Latin character font called Cat Café. There are even a couple of kitties with this one. The Japanese characters are hiragana and katakana only. It was inspired by a cat cafe a dear friend took me to in Tokyo. I think any font with cats in it should be fun and playful! Download Cat Café right here!
GelDotica Jumpy Caps
Hi there! This is another GelDotica font family called Jumpy. Also a fun font for scrapbooking or any type of display. You can download GelDotica Jumpy here. And please, if there are any questions or issues, please let me know!
New font blog
Hi there! I am starting this new font blog and hoping one day someone might read it. Anyway, I am a little obsessed with making fonts right now and I would like to share them with you!
This first group is from my family of fonts called GelDotica. About the name–I named my first font GelPen because I liked the playful look of bright gel pens on a black background and thought my handwriting font worked well with that. Continuing with the gel theme, GelDotica is a family of quirky fonts made of lines and dots and is also a nod to Helvetica.
You can download GelDotica here. This is a set of four all caps fonts for that fun scrapbooking look. Thanks, and come back for more free downloads!
