28 Best Hand Lettering Fonts (Free & Premium)

Want a unique and characterful font to complete your designs? You need a hand lettering font. 

Hand lettering fonts or hand-drawn fonts are perfect for adding some style and creative flair to artistic designs. However, the internet is filled with thousands of hand-drawn fonts, and it can be difficult to choose the right one for your designs.

That’s why we’ve put together this list of the best hand lettering fonts available online. We’ve included 28 fonts to suit every style, as well as a mixture of free and premium options. 

Before we jump into the list, let’s take a look at what hand lettering fonts are and how they can be used.

What is a Hand Lettering Font? 

Hand lettering fonts are fonts that have been drawn by hand instead of using a digital program to create the characters. As a result of them being drawn by hand, each letter is unique and this can help to give your designs more flair and character. 

With fonts that have been designed digitally, things are a little more uniform, and you won’t see any rough edges or unique flair like you do with hand lettering fonts. 

Hand lettering fonts are popular with designers and are often used to create artistic designs such as logos, quotes, and posters.
