10 Handwritten fonts you can't miss

Are you looking for new interesting fonts? This is a list of my preferred Handwritten fonts I often use in my design projects. I included a link to download each font apart and some suggest about how you can use them.
This collection includes: Analgesics, Sketch Rockwell, Joe Hand, Two Turtles Dove, Estrya's Handwritten, Gregs Other Hand, Later On, Bubbly Frog, Rai Elegant and imitation.


1. Analgesics (Download)



Analgesics is a "bold" font particular useful to design heder elements.
Download Analgesics



2. Sketch Rockwell (Download)




This is absolutely my preferred handwritten font, very good to be used, with a big size, for titles and headers.
Download Sketch Rockwell



3. Joe Hand (Download)



Joe Hand is a "fast" handwritten font, nice using small size.
Download Joe Hand



4. Two Turtle Doves (Download)



Two Turtle Doves is e big size font good to design big titles or headers.
Download Two Turtle Doves



5. Estrya's Handwriting (Download)



This is a beautiful font design by Jellyka Nerevan free to use for a personal use. You can use this font to design, for example, notes like this:



Download Estrya's Handwritting



6. Gregs Other Hand (Download)



Gregs Other Hand is an uppercase font you can use for note header like this:





...or with Estrya's (font 5 in this list) to obtain a crayon + pencil effect:




Download Gregs Other Hand



7. Later On (Download)




Later On is a slimmish font which I suggest you to use for big size titles (use a size greater then 42 point for a better effect)
Download Later On



8. Bubbly Frog (Download)



Bubbly Frog is another font useful to design titles or header elements.
Download Bubbly Frog



9. Rai Elegant (Download)



Rai is an elegant handwritten font I prefer to use for small text:



Download Rai



10. Imitation (Download)



Imitaion is another "big" font useful to design titles and headers elements.
Download Imitation

thanks a lot, nice job!

I would also recommend Bradley Hand which I think can be found at dafont.com. It's easy to read and I use this often when adding notes and explanations to screenshots.

As others agree, the Rockwell font is great, especially for headings.

Another excellent post, Antonio :) Thank you for sharing this collection.

evan said...

this will come in very handy - much appreciated!

Michael said...

Thanks for this list of cool fonts. But I don't like Joe Hand and Rai elegant, they both look like blurred and contrasted really bad in Photoshop. All the fine details are lost, all edges are round.

DjZoNe said...

Thank you Antonio, they are awesome.

No Reimer Reason said...

Thank you for sharing these. I especially like the Sketch Rockwell. Fun!

nana777ing said...

Thank for sharing. :D

ze said...

Very thanks for sharing these.

Dallas said...

Interesting that Starbucks's current signage uses the Rockwell Sketch (and possibly Rai Elegant as well). Just that such a corporation would use free fonts in their designs.

Very excellent collection. It's nice to find such useful information all in one place.

Adam Kayce, Monk at Work said...

These are great... but the Imitation font (which says ImitationDemo, btw) is filled with lowercase 'm' in the place of most letters...

Any thoughts on what went wrong?

Andreas Johansson said...

Really awesome, thanks!!

Naseer Ahmad Mughal said...

simple say, excellent

This is a great list of fonts. But how do you make the arrows on circles?

gogonel said...

great. 10x a lot!!!

I love these fonts... and what a great thing for you to list so many good ones, in one location... however, it is just very frustrating as an artist not to know which ones allow for commercial use and which ones don't. Can they be used in web design, can they be altered (artistically) and resold in a kit (not in a font file) as a png. For me, I have to assume that none of them permit commercial use and it seams almost impossible to track every license down... leaving them almost usless... I wish more fontologists would boldy say "commercial use allowd" or "for personal use only".. but thanks for listing these great fonts!

Sketh font is fuckin awsome!!! Good work !

thanks antonio. although i love the way imitation looks, it seems to function incorrectly when installed. i noticed that it said it was a "trial" version, but i'm running into problems with keymapping (ie, "l" key turns into an "m").
