Pixel Fonts

Pixel fonts (aka "bitmap" fonts) are ideal for oTCGs because they are small, sharp, and easy to read, even at just 8pt! This is perfect for tiny virtual cards, which are already limited by space. In this post, I've compiled a selection of free pixel fonts that are popular picks for card makers, as well as a few that are lesser-known in the oTCG world.

PS. I've also made a few fonts available for embedding via Filler00's CDN! So if you'd like to use them as web fonts, you can just include the "Embed" code snippet(s) below (if provided) on your website, ideally above any other CSS includes.
