of Unicode standard, the full encoding range for dingbats (U + 2700 – U + 27BF) is now covered by a complete, contemporary quality font.

Contemporary & Improved ShapesWhile FF Dingbats 2.0 features more than 800 glyphs and is mainly a tool for professional designers, the free Erler Dingbats were created for everyday communication purposes. It includes a wide range of popular symbols and pictograms such as arrows, pens, phones, stars, crosses and checkmarks, plus 3 sets of cameo figures on round backgrounds.

Consistent DesignUnlike other dingbats fonts which often contain a ragtag bunch of symbols in mismatched styles, the Erler Dingbats harmonize elegantly because the drawings all adhere to a common visual language.
