What is the Crusti font?

In 1993, Chank designed Crusti, Crustier, Crustiest and Crusti Wacky to use in CAKE, a fanzine that celebrated grunge music. With a D.I.Y. ethic, inspiration from the likes of Nirvana, and a copier at Kinko’s, Chank created his own fonts. Chank made the four different weights of the Crustis by enlarging and reducing repeated copies to get just the right amounts of grit and grime on his grunge alphabets.

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

The short answer is no. Crusti 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 Crusti, 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 Crusti 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 Crusti is that you get the license to use it leagally. If you're using an illegal version of Crusti and you get caught, you or your client could get into some trouble legally with the publisher of Crusti.

In the rare occasion that you do find a free download for Crusti remember that it's illegal to use a font if you didn't pay for it!
