Gurmukhi/ Punjabi Unicode/ASCII Fonts for free download (over 13.7 million font downloads to date)

Used extensively in Pollywood films and on the covers of literally hundreds of books as well as in magazines and papers, my fonts are available for you to download from here and use for free.All of the 302 fonts in 48 families that you can download from this site are created by me (Paul Alan Grosse) and this is the only place that I put them. You can find older versions of them to download from other people's websites but occasionally, I update some of them or make modifications that the font files on these other sites will not have. This site is the only place that you can guarantee has the most up-to-date files. Further to this, if there are special instructions on how to get the most out of a font, such as special character sequences, the pages where you will find that information are on this site - each font family has its own page.

Also, when I make a new font, it can be months if not years before they appear on other sites. For example, GHP Full is one of the most popular of my fonts in film publicity, including the films themselves and yet there are plenty of Punjabi font download sites that do not have it at all, let alone the most recent version of it. Here, you can see which fonts are new from the list just above the main families table below.

What Is In A Font. . .

Each font has both ASCII and Gurmukhi Unicode glyphs.All of these fonts have characters in both Gurmukhi Unicode and ASCII as shown in the diagram on the right. The 'Extra' portion holds characters that are not directly accesible using a single keystroke such as the paer characters and special, shortened variants of aunkard and dulaunkard that occur with the paer characters.

The font is basically a file with the letter shapes in it. When you press a key on your keyboard, the computer looks at the code that is sent to it from the keyboard and looks up the shape in the font file, then it displays it on the screen or prints it out, depending upon what you have told it to do.

Keyboards are normally configured to produce the codes for ASCII characters and leaving it like this will make your computer look up the character shapes from the ASCII part of the font. For Gurmukhi characters in the ASCII range, see the Computer/ASCII Keyboard page for the layout used in the fonts. However, with Punjabi, you also have the option of configuring it to produce the Unicode codes for characters and when this happens, the Unicode part of the font is used. The standard layout is for the 'InScript' layout which is very much like the Dvorak layout and is very easy to use although there are others. For the Gurmukhi Characters in the Inscript layout, see the Computer/Unicode Keyboard page for the layout used in the fonts. I use both layouts as well as typing ASCII English on my computer and whilst I am fluent in the latter (I started working as a writer in the 1990's so being fluent was really part of my job description), I also find that both the Inscript and the Phonetic layouts are as easy as each other and I can switch between them without any particular difficulty.

The font families on this site are all Gurmukhi Unicode fonts and each one falls into one of three categories:

ASCII
Numbers
ASCII
Letters
Unicode
characters
Meaning...
Gurmukhi glyphs in this area Gurmukhi glyphs in this area Gurmukhi glyphs in this area Unicode Gurmukhi with ASCII Gurmukhi letters and ASCII Gurmukhi numbers.
Gurmukhi glyphs in this area Gurmukhi glyphs in this area Gurmukhi glyphs in this area Unicode Gurmukhi with ASCII Gurmukhi letters and ASCII Latin numbers you can easily convert to Gurmukhi.
Gurmukhi glyphs in this area Gurmukhi glyphs in this area Gurmukhi glyphs in this area Unicode Gurmukhi with ASCII Latin letters and ASCII Latin numbers.

In other words, if it has Gurmukhi letters and Latin numbers in the ASCII code range, you can turn the numbers into Gurmukhi numbers just by typing '##' after any digit you want to convert.

In the table below, you can see which numbers and letters are in which ranges.

What These Fonts Have Been Used For. . .

Representing literally thousands of hours of font design work with the resulting fonts used in over two hundred Punjabi films and on the covers of over two hundred books as well as in magazines, newspapers, jewellery and even as tattoos, my fonts are available for you to download from these pages and use for free for non-profit / personal use. Even if you are making a profit, you only need to pay for a use if you are producing: a book (whether it is in the book itself or only on the cover - a single payment of £100 for the book regardless of how it is used); or an internationally distributed film that lasts half an hour or more (it doesn't really matter how it is distributed or whether it appears in the film itself or in the publicity material such as posters or similar material) for which the fee is £1,000.

My fonts have been used in many films and/or their publicity material - see the 'Fonts In Use'/'Fonts In Films' page - these films including seven of the 20 highest grossing Punjabi films:
Manje Bistre 2017  ; Qismat 2018  ; Muklawa 2019  ; Ambarsariya 2016  ; Bambukat 2016  ; Punjab 1984 2014  ; and, Vadhayiyaan Ji Vadhayiyaan 2018  , and ten in the next 20: Jatt James Bond 2014  ; Manje Bistre 2 2019  ; Nikka Zaildar 2 2017  ; Lahoriye 2017  ; Kala Shah Kala 2019  ; Golak Bugne Bank Te Batua 2019  ; Ashke 2018  ; Nikka Zaildar 3 2019  ; Guddiyan Patole 2019  ; Nikka Zaildar 2016  .
making a total of 17 in the top 40 - film positions from Wikipaedia: List of highest-grossing Punjabi films page retrieved on 31/01/2021.

You can see the extent to which the Covid-19 pandemic has affected the film industry from the lack of films released during 2020 and those that have been delayed until 2021.

The Gurmukhi fonts - 302 fonts in 48 main families (literally over 13.7 million font downloads to date) can be used in commercial as well as non-commercial contexts.

Have you got the latest version of one of these fonts? If you have just downloaded it from this site, you have. Otherwise, you can check any font file by comparing the hash function results of the file on your computer with the values in the list by clicking here for text file and here for a web page - opens in a new tab. Select the font file on your system and look at the properties. Compare the hash result against the values in the table. These pages are kept up-to-date so whenever I update a font or create a new one, it will be on there.

You have the freedom to use these fonts for personal or commercial use although you are forbidden to: charge for them; or, modify and distribute the modified font. If you want something different or even completely new for a specific purpose, email me - see below.

I allow you to use my fonts for free because I believe that morally, everybody should have equal access, regardless of availability of resources - In this way, those who genuinely have not got the money to pay a license fee for a font use can continue to access this resource for free. If I insisted on charging for them for private/non-commercial use then you would be looking at anything from around £50 for a single user.

If you are using the fonts for business purposes, you are not facing bankruptcy and your business model includes paying those that have produced resources that you are using, then you might want to consider making a contribution towards the time, artistic and technological investment that I have made in these fonts as well as the ongoing costs of running and maintaining a production server 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

To give you an idea of what the commercial use charges are: the charge for a book is GBP100; and, for a single multinational film production, GBP1,000. Websites are free. If you are paying me for use, or just want to make a contribution, make sure that you send me any details you want to me to publish so that they can go on the contributors' page.

Thank you.

All of the fonts here have characters both in the Gurmukhi Unicode range and also in the ASCII range. This means that you can use them with programs that haven't got UniCode capabilities as well as with those that have although you might find that you can do more with the font using Unicode, or that there are extra features built in so that things are done automatically by the font, such as contextual substitutions - look for the 'CSub' logo.

If you have installed a complete family of fonts, such as 'Raaj', and you think you can't see them all, look at the end of this page.

Windows BugRegarding Unicode text: Note that whilst all of the fonts on this site work fine on UNIX/Linux there is a bug in some older versions of the rendering engine on Windows that means that in the Unicode range, some fonts will not display correctly in some programs on those systems. All of the fonts on this site work correctly in The Gimp - free image editing program - on Windows and UNIX/Linux but on some older versions of Windows, some programs don't process Indic fonts correctly.

Fonts work to differing degrees on those systems, depending upon how buggy the system is, you might find that some programs:

  • work completely well;
  • don't allow ligatures in Latin (like 'ffi' and so on) used by some fonts to give extra functionality;
  • have problems with conjunct formation
  • might steal elements from adjacent conjucts in complex words (usually English words in Gurmukhi written with explicit conjncts)
  • have problems with conjunct glyph element positioning
  • ...Windows Bug
  • don't even put a sihari before the consonant/conjunct.
For example, Adobe Photoshop CS3 on Windows Vista Ultimate with Microsoft's own Raavi font falls into ths latter category, even though it all works perfectly on The GIMP on the same system with the same font.


Where have the fonts gone?

On some programs on some operating systems, you might think that you cannot access all of the fonts that you have installed.

This can be a problem with fonts that have a lot of weights such as 'Raaj'.

Normally, you will get a list of fonts that you have installed like the one on the right which is from WordPad (Windows Vista).

You can see all of the fonts that you have installed and you know what is what - even thought it has put them in alphabetical order rather than weight order.

However, some programs will try to be a bit cleverer than that and you might end up with a font list like the one on the right (this is Photoshop CS3).

In fact, all that has happened here is that the program as tried to separate the fonts into families and to a certain extent, it has succeeded - although not completely.

This list is actually a font families listing (so, we can see that it was wrong not to place 'Raaj Thin' in with 'Raaj').

On Photoshop - and a number of other programs - there is another set of options and here, to the right of the font families dropdown list, is the font style list.

Now, you can see the different styles that it offers you and largely, it has got this right - although not completely.

When I first came across this problem in an email, I wondered if it might be a problems with the operating system and font installation (this doesn't happen on the OS I use - SuSE) but it appears that it is nothing more than the program itself.

As for the 'Raaj Script' font, it has just renamed it for you as 'Raaj Medium'.

Ho hum.
