We chose our 10 favorite free Old English style fonts to share this month. This font style has a great formal calligraphy look that is perfect for the upcoming fall and winter holidays. I use these fonts a lot during the holidays on place cards and when I’m addressing envelopes. Since they have a lovely formal look, they’d be perfect for wedding projects too!
I’ve tried to only choose commercial free fonts that are in the public domain, so it’s great to know that you can use these in projects that you make and sell without worrying!
Just match up the text from the graphic above with the font name below and follow a link to download these fonts.
1. Snowman is written in Anglican Text.
2. Snow Flurries is written in Fancy Card.
3. NOEL is written in Royal Initialen.
4. Merry is written in Dearest.
5. Greetings is written in Teutonic No4 Demibold.
6. Christmas is written in ManuskriptGotisch.
7. Santa Claus is written in Deutsche Zierschrift.

*A note about downloading, installing & using fonts: There are a lot of sites out there that offer free fonts. Some are set up mostly to display ads, and others take you to suspicious files & links. Even some legitimate sites run confusing ads that feature images that say “download”, when it’s for another product. While we don’t recommend one free font website over another, we have tried to link to the more straightforward sites to make finding the font easier for you. If you click on anything that looks like an application or .exe file, stop, it’s not what you want, and is probably malware. Don’t forget to follow the site’s specific directions to download and install the font. If you are a crafter and will be selling your work, please be sure to read any files or information that comes with the font. Some fonts have restrictions on the commercial use of a font for mass production quantities and on the sharing / redistribution of the font file itself.
