I know what you’re thinking, you’re thinking you’re in desperate need of a pinnable blog post on script fonts that have a bit of a retro feel. Or as my keyword plugin is reminding to say in my opening paragraph retro script fonts. These fonts are for a more modern take on vintage. They can evoke the 50’s and 60’s. Think of Americana, Cadillac’s, drive-ins and the like. If you want to see what I mean easily just google retro food packaging https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=retro+food+packaging&espv=210&es_sm=93&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=F40-U7ieFqjx0gXg0IHwAg&ved=0CAgQ_AUoAQ&biw=1680&bih=963
Virtual Food for Thought
Some of you may get in the right head space if I mention Fancy Lad Snack Cakes or Nuka Cola. Lobster in particular I think is good for a classic Las Vegas look.
I think this post is fairly self-explanatory. Some of the fonts are stronger on the retro feel than others, but I would happily use all of them in that context. Just some bring that feeling very obviously and others are more complimentary but maybe not exclusively retro.
Why Retro Script Fonts?
Why have a I blogged about these fonts, well I think fonts are marvellous. I design and then make bespoke wedding invitations and bespoke wedding stationery for that matter to! You can see my website Artemis Stationery here. They bring such individual style they can change the feel of art work from elegant to Art Deco, modern to retro. So I put the chance to select practically font as a key part to my wedding stationery. After all with so much choice out there why not create something unique! Script fonts are particularly good for weddings as they’re naturally elegant. While the retro scripts fonts tend to often be fairly easy to read making them good for body text as well as titles.
