What is the Plakat font?

Plakat is based on lettering by 1920s advertising calligrapher Samuel Welo.
It is a complete upper and lower case set with a number of alternate characters, all with a rough, decorative look accented by curls and hooks. If you like the look of our popular Scurlock font, Plakat has a similar aesthetic, though it is even bolder.

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

The short answer is no. Plakat 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 Plakat, 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 Plakat 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 Plakat is that you get the license to use it leagally. If you're using an illegal version of Plakat and you get caught, you or your client could get into some trouble legally with the publisher of Plakat. Also it is highly unlikely that you'll be able to find Plakat for free. Doing various searches on Google such as "Free Plakat 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 Plakat remember that it's illegal to use a font if you didn't pay for it!
