Script fonts are beautiful typefaces that resemble handwritten and calligraphic lettering styles. They can either be formal where they’ll appear elegant or informal where they’ll appear more playful.

Script fonts can also be connected, semi-connected or unconnected. This refers to the flow that exists between each letter. Connected fonts are designed with a careful approach to ensure each letter flows into the next in a smooth, continuous manner.

These types of fonts are mainly used on invitations, headings for announcements or advertising. They’re rarely used on the web as a body text and work best when used for their intended purposes.

Here are 35 free script fonts.
