Best of Script Fonts: 3 User Tips and 12 Fan Favorites

Fonts are fun, and today many spectacular fonts are just a few clicks away.

But, it can be tricky to use decorative fonts well, especially script (or cursive style lettering) fonts. Script fonts can be challenging to read, size, or space, so frequently designers shy away from using them at all.

Have no fear!

Script fonts are beautiful typefaces that can appear elegant, informal, or even downright playful. These decorative delights can be managed well with three basic tips:

1. Read Between the Lines

When using a script font, pay attention to the design elements between individual characters.

If a script font looks crowded (or too condensed), you can adjust the font kerning. This will give the eye more breathing room by adding spacing between each letter. But if you adjust the tracking, you may disrupt the flow or connection between letters. If you loosen your kerning, be sure to double-check that each letter is still correctly flowing to the next.

2. Be a Minimalist

Many script fonts have exaggerated ascenders or descenders (letters that go above or below the main text line) which may require greater space between lines.

Typically, script fonts are best when used for one line only (like a quote or a tagline). If you do need to create space between lines, adjust the leading of your font to make it more reader-friendly.

Since the priority of your text is readability, script fonts should be used sparingly. They are best used for headers or call-outs, and a good rule of thumb is to use them for script sections that are seven words or less.

3. Be Distinct

The purpose of script fonts is to add a personal, handmade feel to your message.

When you use an overly formal font, it can come across as snobbish or condescending. Instead, go for script fonts with a more personal feel (like your best friend’s handwriting).

While some cursive fonts can be unprofessional, some of the best fonts are those that aren’t too calligraphic or too casual. Look for something right in between that makes your reader feel right at home!

One of the most important things that we do with our clients is share our knowledge with them. Not only what products and services we offer, but also how we create them. We want our clients to understand the high quality of workmanship that goes into their finished products.

The Print It Plus commitment to high quality starts from the moment you contact us. It starts with your initial interaction with our sales team, continues as you work with our design team, and right through the work of our production team (and installation team, if it is a vehicle wrap, decal or signage you have purchased from us). Even after your product has been delivered, our customer service people are here to work with you and continue to build on our client/vendor relationship with you.

We apply these same high standards to any new products or services that we consider adding to our arsenal. For example, when we decided to add Vehicle Wraps, Truck Wraps, Car Wraps, Decals and to the Print It Plus product line a few years ago, we did not just buy the vinyl print machine, obtain the materials and say “here we go!” and start rolling out vehicles with wraps on them. Not by a long shot.

No Pressure Roof Cleaning

We do an extensive amount of research – not only to determine if it is a viable market for us to enter but also what is required to offer the finest finished product in the market. In the case of vehicle wraps and decals, we determined they were strong compliments to our current product lines. Furthermore, we determined that we already possessed the capability to do the work in house with printing machines we were already considering adding and some additional training. That is how we decided to add vehicle wraps, truck wraps, car wraps, boat wraps, decals and decorations to our product line a few years ago.

Then you add the most important element to the mix – how do we make sure to create and install a top-quality vehicle wrap or decal each and every time we do one. We strive to always deliver the highest quality of finished product. An integral part of our research into whether or not we would add these or any other product or service to our product line is whether we could deliver the best quality product available on the market.
