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.

New Free Script Fonts With Multiple Glyph Styles – Part 2


Elegant, versatile, and overly popular as script fonts are, there weren’t enough occasions for me to use them in my design work. Most of my projects required a clean-cut look and simplicity of sans-serif fonts. So as my personal side project, I came up with a script fonts’ reference file and made it a habit to keep it constantly updated. Just simply sifting through it gets me into a creative mood.

The only thing I love more than free script fonts is free script fonts with glyphs, which are alternate letters, special characters, swashes, ligatures, and ornaments in a font. 

As my first post Free Script Fonts With Multiple Glyph Styles got its fair share of re-pins, I’ve decided to follow up and have another set of free fonts with glyphs published. Apparently, I am not the only one who has a thing for free script fonts with beautiful extras. 

The bane of many creatives is to rely on the demo banner to have glyphs in a free font and find out only after the installation that those lovely extras are not available under the free license. 

To get the most out of a glyph panel, I use Adobe 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:

Have fun and stay creative using these fonts with glyphs as they make all the difference in adding a one-of-a-kind feel to the design.

    1. Thank you for visiting this page.

      If I got the question right, first you need to download the font you'd like to use on your computer by clicking the font links in this post. It will take you to the external font site (dafont.com or fontbundles.net) with the download button.

      You click the download button and save the zipped font folder on your computer. Locate the .zip file and extract the font by double-clicking on the folder.

      There will be multiple files inside the folder, you need to look for the .otf or .ttf files. Double-click or right-click on either format to install the font. The installation starts automatically. I prefer to install OTF files since they normally include glyphs or alternates for letters and characters.

      Each font comes with a license, please read it carefully as it outlines the proper font usage.

      Once the font is installed, you will be able to locate it in the Font Book on a Mac or Fonts in Control Panel on a PC.

      Open the application of your choice to use the font you've just installed.
