3IP Modern Handwritten Fonts Collection font


Random Discounted Bundle…

Choose this bundle and save 40% off the price of licensing these seven faces separately. View Details »


Houston Pen font


Random Historical Pen…

Houston Pen™ reflects the flowery penmanship of arguably the most famous Texan of all time. Sam Houston was a citizen of the Cherokee Nation (and lifelong friend of Native Americans), a veteran of the War of 1812, a hero of the Battle of San Jacinto, twice President of the Republic of Texas, a U.S. Senator, and the only person elected governor of two U.S. states (Texas and Tennessee). Try it out here »


New Millennium font


Random Book Text…

New Millennium is a masterful modern typeface. Its look is both frank and stylish, and its feel is clean and clear. It’s also something of a novelty, in that its five styles include both serifs and sans-serifs: its Regular and Italic are flat-serifed fonts, yet their bold counterparts are sans (identical to those of New Millennium Sans). Add to these a heavy Headline serif, and you’ve got a true multi-purpose type tool. Try it out here »


Antiquarian Scribe font


Random Old Map Font…

Antiquarian Scribe™ is one of two fonts of ours inspired by an original page I have of Atlas Historique, ou Nouvelle Introduction a l’Histoire, a world atlas published by Henri Abraham Chatelain in the early 1700s. Its slanted hand-lettered characters work well with the bold, upright glyphs of Antiquarian, its sister font. Both full-featured serifs are members of our Old Map Fonts CollectionTry it out here »


Midnight font


Random Display Face…

Midnight is an ornamental typeface with a simple raison d’être: to simulate the look of the lettering on neon signs. Naturally, its two styles—Light and Bright—work best when knocked out of a dark background, but the font’s look is such that its usefulness is not limited to illustrations of a downtoan city street at night. An ideal addition to any designer’s display-font toolbox. Try it out here »


Oak Street font


Random Modern Handwritten Font…

Fat and sassy Oak Street simulates printing from a felt-tip marker. A heavyweight attention-grabber, this font is nevertheless neat and readable. Might work well for signs, headlines, display text, packaging—even menus. Oak Street’s nearly 800 characters include ligatures, small capitals, and full Latin support. One of six faces in our Modern Handwritten Fonts CollectionTry it out here »


Attic Antique font


Random Antique Text Font…

Akin to the Century faces, Attic Antique™ has the look of a weathered old serif from a century-old textbook. It’s surprisingly legible at any size, from 12-point text blocks to enormous billboard copy. Comes with roman and italic styles and plenty of OpenType-features, including true small caps, discretionary ligatures, and full Latin support—nearly 900 characters in all. A popular display face since 1993. Try it out here »


Treefrog font


Random Offbeat Font…

There’s nothing quite like Treefrog, which resembles writing made by someone who’s dipped a finger in spilled ink. This celebrated grunge font from the 1990s conjures a sense of whimsy, a flight of fancy. Fittingly, it comes with a series of droll ornaments (fish, chairs, garden tools). Oddly, it also has full Latin support—with more than 500 glyphs in all. A member of our Offbeat Grab Bag bundle. Try it out here »
