The 50 Best Free Pretty Fonts for Your Creative Projects

pretty fonts

Have you been looking for the perfect pretty font to use on a new set of tote bags to give away to clients?

Or a pretty script font to use on your natural product labels?

In the hopes of saving you from endless scrolling next time you go font hunting, we've put together a fun list of the best 50 FREE pretty fonts for your creative projects.

Pretty fonts are commonly associated with feminine or childish designs, but if you broaden your horizons just a little, there are some which work just fine for tech startups or service-based companies. It all depends on the message that your brand wants to portray and the clients you want to attract.

A unique and pretty font can send a very special message through its soft lines and rounded shapes.

 

How to Use This Pretty Font Guide

In this guide, we've separated fonts into three groups: Script, Sans and Serif.

Most pretty fonts fit into the Script category due to their playful nature and hand-drawn style. From signature-style fonts to thicker brush types, there is a pretty script font for everyone.

In the Sans category, most are rounded and bubbly, although some are thin and delicate. Sans fonts are the ones that don’t have small lines attached to the ends of letters.

The last category, Serif, is not very common for pretty fonts, but you might be surprised! By playing with the size and shape of the serif, what would usually be an elegant or formal font can become energetic and fun.

We want to add a little note about free fonts. While all the ones we have included in this list are free to download, not all are free for commercial use. That means that you can use them for personal projects but not for ones you are going to sell or use in your business. Other fonts, especially families of fonts, give a free download demo but don't allow you to access the entire font collection. Please make sure to read the licensing information before using each font so you don’t get into trouble.
