Favorite Font Combos: Handwritten Fonts

It’s a well established fact that I’m a font hoarder. Not a day goes by that I’m not searching for a fun font to play around with. People always ask me how I choose fonts to pair together, so I thought I would start sharing some great font combinations with you. With Pinterest being the number one way for traffic to make it’s way to our blogs these days, it’s more and more important to have 1) excellent photos, and 2) beautiful graphics. The best way to create eye-catching text on your photos is to choose the right fonts.
To start, I picked a bunch of my favorite handwritten fonts. I also asked some of my friend’s what their favorite fonts were, and I put together a list of ten awesome handwritten font combos.

The best way to match fonts, is to pick your favorites and just play with them. Always remember the rule of opposites attract. If you look through my list, you’ll see that none of the fonts look like their partners. Bold and delicate, thick and fine, cursive and straight, all caps, and lower case.

Remember though, just because the fonts look good together in the list here, it’s not a guarantee that they will go with your text or your photo/graphic. You have to test them out and see if you like your text in that font. Dafont.com is great because you can enter your text and then search fonts to see which have the best lettering for those words.

Since I’m always looking to try out new fonts, tell me yours!

    Thanks so much for this wonderful post Kristin! I love that you used DaFont mostly, which is so easy to download from. I also admire that you find time for an awesome blog while being a single mom! Blessings!

    I just saw this on Pinterest…I am so excited! I have been looking for fonts while trying to figure out my “style.” This is a huge help, especially for someone like me who is unsure of what direction to go. Thank you, thank you! Of course I pinned it!

    Silly question, maybe: If I download and use some of these wonderful fonts in an email, does the receiver of the email have any trouble? Does it come across to them as the same? And the same question for Word..although I usually send Word docs as a PDF. THANKS for these!

    Hi Kristin! I missed this post the first time around and am glad to have found it on your 2013 top ten posts. I’m font-challenged and never know what typography looks good together. I so admire this graphic design skill that I don’t possess! Now I can just refer to your examples (which I’m pinning for safe-keeping.) Thanks so much! Happy New Year!

    Kristin,

    Quick question! On the little button that says “TOP 5 FONT COMBOS” and “on FRIDAY”. Is that the “Pea Diana” font from kevinandamanda.com? That’s my handwriting font that I submitted to her! I saw it and immediately knew it was my font, I’m pretty sure! If so that is so so awesome that my font/handwriting made it on your website I love it!! :)
