34+ Best Script Fonts for 2017 (with Free Download)

Script List by: Rade   ·  Updated:

What are Script Fonts?

Script is a form of stylized, interconnected writing that tends to fall out of practice in modern day. The writing style presents a more elegant means of writing, and allows a more personalized demonstration of expressing information. Script typefaces tend to match a more personal, handwriting style that often interweaves sophisticated and artistic. Just as with any other category of font, there are many options that follow under this category that meet different needs and standards of designers and artists.

Script Fonts vs Calligraphy vs Handwriting

They are similar to that of handwriting and calligraphy fonts and are commonly used for greeting cards, invitations, personal notes, and other emotionally expressive text. There are a variety of different script fonts that range from more formal to a rather casual style.

Formal script fonts are sophisticated and connective, while the elegance of the text makes it perfect for greeting cards and invitations. The text looks best in large point font, and can be a bit overwhelming in smaller sizes. This design style is preferable to use in headlines or short blips of text, as it can get a bit tiring to read after a while. Using formal script-styled characters for lengthy text can be overwhelming for the reader, and can end up being rather illegible. In general, formal script typefaces are some of the most tidy and free flowing typefaces available that still manage to maintain an element of sophistication.

When looking at casual script fonts, there is a less formalized element. Some of the letters are interconnecting, while in other typefaces they are not. Each style has its own personal flair, similar to how script is when handwritten. Informal script characters can be more personal and playful than formal options. These tend to match a more handwritten style than the formal script fonts as well.

When not to use script styled letters?

They are not meant to be written in all capitals. The letters can be almost, if not completely, impossible to read when written this way. Script fonts are also not meant for all occasions. Scripts are only to be used when there is an intended desire to personalize the information being presented. For instance, if sending a thank you card after a wedding, script font can be a perfect option. When sending an email to a boss, script font may not be the best way to establish professionalism.

Script Font Definition

They are highly stylized and focus on the movement of the text. This makes them a great choice for formal invitations, weddings and similar ideas you might want to style-up for 2017. Script characters add a little extra twist and style to any project. If looking to work with a particular style from a different time frame, such as the 70s or 50s, take a look at some of the script options used for different advertising in that era in order to make connections through the expressed form of writing.
