Happily you don’t have to buy all your fonts. Some are free, and some come bundled with other products.

Fonts Bundled With Java

Starting with JDK (Java Development Kit) 1.3, all JDKs (Java Development Kits) and JREs (Java Runtime Environments) come bundled with three additional fonts (Lucida Bright, Lucida Sans and Lucida Typewriter) collectively called physical Fonts. You don’t even need to use Java to get the free fonts, just install the JRE ( Java run time ). However, to use the fonts outside Java you must manually install them in Windows from C:\Program Files\java\jre1.8.0_131\\lib\fonts. You are permitted to redistribute the fonts, but only if you include the entire JRE (Java Runtime Environment).

MS Office and MS Publisher come bundled with fonts such as:

Your PostScript printer comes with 35 fonts built-in, but you can’t get at them from Java under Windows.
