20 Free Script Fonts Perfect For Designers
There are literally thousands of free script fonts available throughout the web, making finding the perfect one a daunting task. We’re lucky that a few talented typeface designers release a free script font on occasion and, if we know where to look, we can add it to our type collection. Here I have listed 20 of my favorite free script fonts.
Cylburn is a slightly elegant script font, one which I use quite often. Offered by the Lost Type Co-op, you choose the price from $0 on up.
Handletter has a bit of an urban feel to it and is provided by The Hungry JPEG. You’ll have to create a free account to access the freebies, it’s worth it.
Allura has a very elegant style with a slightly wide stature. It can be picked up over at Font Squirrel and is shipped in one weight.
Mission Script is slightly condensed and is a great option for signage. The download is offered by Lost Type Co-op, where you choose the price.
Nickainley is a well-crafted monoline script that has a great flow to it. You can download it at The Hungry JPEG with your free account.
Pacifico is a fun script font that was inspired by the 1950s American surf culture. Use it as a webfont or download it at Google Fonts.
Great Vibes is a nice calligraphic script with some decorative uppercase letters. You can download it from Font Squirrel in its regular weight.
Gardenia is a fun handwritten script that ships with a bonus of 90 different hand-drawn floral ornaments. You can get it for free from Pixel Buddha.
Variane, with its medium weight and almost monoline appearance, is one of my favorites. You’ll need to create a free account at The Hungry JPEG to acquire it.
Honey Script reminds me of a classic 50’s font. Also one of my favorites, it can be downloaded at 1001 Fonts in two weights.
Cookie is your standard script font, just the right amount of character and very legible. Google Fonts offers it as a download or as a webfont.
Apart from its style, the countless opentype features make Lavanderia a must-have. Pick your price from $0 on up at Lost Type Co-op.
Arizonia marches to the beat of its own drum with its unique styling. It can be used as a webfont or you can download it to your computer at Google Fonts.
Bobbie is a great handwritten typeface with just enough character to set it apart from pack. With your free account, you can grab it from The Hungry JPEG.
Reklame came out in 2010 and was influenced by the handlettering of advertisements from the 40s and 50s. Try out the demo for free and purchase, if you like, from MyFonts.
Wisdom Script is a sturdy, yet unique script font with a nice medium weight. Another winner from Lost Type Co-op, you pick the price you pay for the download.

If I had to pick three favorites it would be Eastside, Variane and Honey Script. Did any of these stand out for you?
