15 Free Halloween Fonts
Well now, the Fall holidays will be here before you know it! Which means that Halloween is not too far off. Today we have put together some of the creepiest Halloween fonts around, we think they are frightfully good! These free fonts, and vintage typography, would work really well on handmade retro apothecary labels, Halloween party invitations to ghoulish parties, greeting cards, flyers, book covers, t-shirts, caps, badges, product designs, social media posts… as well as menus for frightening feasts, or any other graphic design project that you can think of! Some of these spooky Halloween fonts remind me of the kind that you would see on movie posters for a retro horror movie. Quite frightening! Be sure to also check out the Best Halloween Graphics HERE on The Graphics Fairy to find the perfect choice image for your project.

Enjoy browsing three these creepy letters, hopefully you will find something to suit the taste of your project, great to add to your Photoshop Brush Font collection!
Free Halloween Fonts List
1. A Charming Font by Gem Fonts This one is a thin handwritten style font that looks like very old handwriting. I can’t help but think of Sleepy Hollow when I look at this one.
2. Old Press by Galdino Otten Old Press has block type, stenciled looking letters that are heavily distressed.
3. Valium by Divide by Zero I don’t know why they call this one Valium because this one gives me anxiety just looking at it! Haha. It’s quite an interesting looking one.
4. Whitechapel BB by Nate Piekos This next one is another old world looking script font.
5. Parseltongue by Carpe Saponem I don’t know which is scarier, the name of this one, or the actual type!
6. Lemonade by Rachel Lauren Adams Another distressed block letter style, although it’s a bit more delicate than the other one.
7. Fiddums Family by Jeff Bell This one looks to have been inspired by the Adams Family Show. So fun!
8. Deutsche Zierschrift by Dieter Steffmann This is an Old world German style letter set. It reminds me a bit of Dark Shadows!
9. Monsters Attack by The Empire of the Claw Monsters Attack definitely has a classic horror movies vibe to it.
10. Yataghan by Fontor Probably not your worst nightmare… Yataghan is slightly creepy though and would work well in your Halloween designs.
11. Zombie Holocaust by Chad Savage This is certainly horrific looking, it’s rather artistic too.
12. Rapscallion by Ryan Splint This is an old English style option that has raggedy looking edges to it. Great for Pirate projects too.
13. Buffied by Gem Fonts (click on the icon with the arrow that says ttf) An interesting compact option that looks a bit like it’s dripping.
14. Quixotte by Apostrophic Lab A stylized looking thin lettering option, that’s slightly creepy.
15. A Dripping Marker by wickhop Yikes! This one is quite a ghoulish looking font.

*A note about downloading, installing & using these halloween-themed 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 opentype fonts have restrictions on the commercial use of a font for mass production quantities and on the sharing / redistribution of the font file itself.
Sorry, I got ahead of myself. Didn’t read your directions.
Glad you were able to get it Kaaren!
Not sure how to download the font on Font Pro. There is no download button. Help!
Love these fonts, cant wait to digitize them and stitch them out on my embroidery machine.
Wow, that sounds like so much fun! I’d love to see what you’re making!

Great squirrel, pretty roses and awesome font choices. Thanks for today’s offerings.
I like DaFont.com for my fonts. I feel like it’s a little “safer” than some of the other free font sites.
Thanks for the feedback! I agree. I like DaFont.com and Fontspace.com the best too & haven’t had any bad downloads with either. Those two also seem to cover most of the fonts I’m looking for. I like FontSquirrel,com too, though the choices in some categories are limited. Trying to give a few download options in the post, but I agree that DaFont is the most straightforward with the fewest ads or spam made to look like a legit download link.
