What is the Belwe font?

Designed by George Belwe for Schelter & Giesecke in Dresden, Belwe is one of the first typefaces to show the elements of the style we have classified as Kuenstler. Deliberately unusual proportions and detailing break with traditional rhythm and hint at blackletter connections.

You're probably thinking - Is Belwe available to Download for free?

The short answer is no. Belwe is definitely not available as a free download font. This is a premium font which mean that you will have to pay to download and use it in your project. We showcase fonts on SharedFonts that are almost all premium fonts. Feel free to waste valuable hours of your time searching for a free download of Belwe, but take it from me, you will not be successful in your quest. Just think how much time and effort you will save if you just pay for Belwe and be done with it.

It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Belwe is that you get the license to use it leagally. If you're using an illegal version of Belwe and you get caught, you or your client could get into some trouble legally with the publisher of Belwe. Also it is highly unlikely that you'll be able to find Belwe for free. Doing various searches on Google such as "Free Belwe Download" you will see a lot of websites that will say "Free Download" but these are just attempts to get you to click on a link which will either take you to an ad landing page or you risk getting viruses on your computer. In the rare occasion that you do find a free download for Belwe remember that it's illegal to use a font if you didn't pay for it!
