3IP Modern Handwritten Fonts Collection font


Random Discounted Bundle…

Our Modern Handwritten Fonts Collection™ brings together six real-looking script typefaces (fifteen fonts among them) that closely simulate a mix of contemporary handwriting styles.

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


Botanical Scribe font


Random Historical Pen…

Botanical Scribe™ was inspired by the fine, hand-inscribed legends on the early-19th-century floral etchings of Belgian painter Pierre-Joseph Redouté. Because of its slight organic imperfections, it has a warm, accessible feel while remaining elegant enough for formal invitations and the like. Try it out here »


Sarabande font


Random Book Text…

Sarabande is Lars Bergquist’s painstaking reproduction of Jean Jannon’s famous “Garamond” of 1621—also known as Caractères de l’université. This truly lovely serif has Roman and Italic styles and a full range of Latin diacritics, but it lacks unhistorical glyphs such as those for higher math and logic. Sarabande is a favorite member of our discounted Book Texts bundle. Try it out here »


Geographica Hand font


Random Old Map Font…

Geographica Hand is a replication of the hand-lettered titles on British map engravings of the 18th century. The font is as legible and versatile as Geographica Roman but more genuinely evocative of the source materials. Its 900 glyphs are feature-rich and include several sketchy cartographic illustrations—trees, churches, windmills, and the like. Geographica Hand is a member 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 »


Professor font


Random Modern Handwritten Font…

Professor replicates the cursive script of an actual college professor (the designer’s late-father), who had the kind of plain modern hand schoolkids used to see on a blackboard. Replete with contextual ligatures, this font was designed to fool casual readers into thinking they’re scanning real handwriting. Has nearly 600 glyphs and full Latin support. A member of our Modern Handwritten Fonts CollectionTry it out here »


Broadsheet font


Random Antique Text Font…

Broadsheet™ is a two-style family that simulates the type on printed matter from the Colonial American period. Modeled after the text on actual 18th-century broadsides, this font gives you more double-s ligatures than you can dream of. Comes with true small caps, contextual and discretionary alternates, genuine period printer’s flourishes, and full Latin support. 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 »
