What is the Weiss® font?
Rudolf Weiss designed this typeface in 1926 for the Bauer foundry of Frankfurt. Weiss is based on typefaces from the Italian Renaissance, and is one of the earliest contemporary serif types to have italics based on the chancery style of writing.
The vertical strokes that are heavier at the top than at the bottom are unusual, and give Weiss a distinct beauty. Weiss is a legible text type and an elegant display face for headlines or titles.

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