March 7, 2011

One DIY project that’s ever-popular among brides-to-be is making your own wedding invitations. Not only does this save money, but it also makes the first taster of the wedding that your guests receive very personal to the  couple.

But what fonts to choose? Well fear not, because this new series will tackle this issue. We start off today with a sample of vintage and retro styles… Click on the arrow to the right to download…

Matchbook Sans

Matchbox is a real 1920s retro style font, can be scaled up beautifully. Best used as a header.



Olho de Boi

I love all the little scratches and lines on this font, it’s so rustic and romantic.



Just Old Fashion

Like a spacer but longer
I use this font a lot, I find it really easy to read and pleasing to the eye.

A perfect font for smaller print and all the little details!


Bazar, Medium

Like a spacer but longer
This font has a lovely, early cinema aesthetic, there’s something almost gothic about it, especially when used white on black.

    These are great. I’m a total font geek!
    Use them for your menus and place cards or just anything. You can get loads of free ones too.
