I will admit it, I don’t do a TON of design work myself. I like to mess around in Silhouette Design Studio and create SVG files for our business, make flyers here and there, or even some simple files for our crafts. I’m not really into all the different concepts and methods to be honest. The one part of design work that I am absolutely obsessed with though – FONTS! I can play all day long with different fonts. I love to pair fonts together, create clip arts for our business and even make new apparel designs using just fonts. I often find myself just scouring the internet for new, unique fonts.
I’ve collected quite the stash of fonts and typefaces over the last few years but there’s a handful that have proved tried and true for so many of my projects. Today I wanted to share my current absolute favorites for crafting and creating (some are free and some are paid). I hope you love them as much as I do!
I love the simplicity of this font. It’s slim and slender and pairs well so many other fonts. I use it most often on printable items, like stationary, invites and flyers.
Hello Sunshine has been my go to font for SVG files and apparel, however for cutting files it does prove to need quite a bit of tweaking, but I think the end result is worth it! This font pair includes a script and brush font that pair perfectly together.
Perfect for team wear, Spills is a fun and playful font that includes automatic tails with lots of different options.
Joplin is a simple, yet bold fold that I like to use for headings and titles. I love the rustic feel of it and think it works great with many crafting projects.
This is one of Frankie’s favorite fonts. It has an almost vintage feel to it and really stands out among other fonts. It looks great on crafts and DIY projects!
Emerson is a perfect font for a softer feel. This is my go to font for anything girly for A & G’s bedrooms, invites or gifts for showers, and even some holiday decor DIY projects.
Of course I love this font purely because of it’s name – but it’s also just enough swirl femininity for so many things! Check out the amazing glyphs available with this font.
Brooklyn Coffee is the perfect handwritten font for home decor projects IMO. I love the bold, vintage look and have used it many times for stencils and vinyl projects around the house!
Magnolia Sky is my newest favorite font. I wasn’t too sure about the swirls and loops at first, but after using it a few times it’s now one of my absolute favorites for heat transfer vinyl designs!
Be sure to check on the licensing for each font – some have personal licences while others have commercial licenses. You will always want to be sure you are using the font under the correct license and restrictions.
