25 Free Handwriting Fonts for your Designer Toolbox

Read the full post

People always ask what font I use to create my annotated code examples in my web design tutorials here on Line25, so I figured a roundup of the best hand-drawn fonts would prove quite handy. This post rounds up a range of free handwriting fonts based on various handwriting styles. If you’re in need of a font to add a human touch to your design in the form of a note or a personal message, you can be sure you’ll find the perfect font in this collection.

Since we were granted the ability to make font choices beyond Helvetica and Georgia thanks to the @font-face rule and the various web fonts services we’ve seen an explosion of custom web fonts in website designs. Nowadays we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to web typography and the handwritten fonts have started to gain more and more popularity.

The world of web typography is advancing with leaps and bounds. Already we have the options of SiFR, Cufon, Typekit, @font-face and even Google has introduced their own custom font service under the Google Font API. We hope that these free handwritten fonts will inspire you to add a more personal touch to your website designs. If you’re looking for inspiration on how to use handwritten fonts and elements in a web design, check out these websites with hand drawn typography.

    Has anyone ever used the iFontMaker for iPad? I think it's about seven bucks, and totally worth it. I exported my handwriting as an .otf and thought it was just the greatest thing until one of my coworkers put it side-by-side with Comic Sans…it was frighteningly similar. I'll be training myself to write more like Helvetica in the future.
