Free Fonts With Holiday Glyphs

Holidays tend to sneak up on me before I know it. So the thing with a design for various holidays is that I'm almost always rushing to get it done and print on time. Getting it done often means cutting corners on creative thinking, idea generation, and image search.  This is where the graphic designer's best-kept secret – glyphs – comes in handy. Whether you design for a client or tackling your child's school project, using glyphs could do wonders.

Free Script Fonts With Multiple Glyph Styles


Have you ever chosen the font on a free font website based off the demo preview in which elaborate loops and curves adorned the letters to only find out after downloading that those embellishments are not available under the personal use license? And to have access to all hidden alternates in the font, you have to purchase a commercial license.

More often than not, this is the case with many free script fonts on the web – the stylish alternates are missing in a free font version. The rule of thumb when looking for free fonts with the glyphs collections is to make sure that the font is the OpenType format. If you download a TrueType (TTF) font file, chances are regardless of what you see on a demo banner you will end up downloading a bare-bone version of the font.

To make your font choices easier, I’ve sifted through numerous free script fonts to find the ones that actually include the glyphs under the personal use license. I hope it helps to speed up your typography process when working on the next design project.

To get the most out of a glyphs panel, I use Illustrator and/or Photoshop as they widely support OpenType features. But as a way around to access the glyphs, you can also use a built-in font program, such as Font Book and basic apps on a Mac:
