Moodboard: December

December. Sometimes I forget how charming and reassuring you are, the season of Advent. I love the smell of clementine peels, the chill in the air, and the way everything seems to come alive in anticipation of Christmas. December reminds me of hope, inner change, and a chance to start afresh.

Free Modern Script Fonts With Stylish Glyphs For Commercial Use – Part 2

I know I say this in every modern calligraphy post, but there's no such thing as too many elegant script fonts in one's font library. Those exquisite handwritten typefaces steal your heart with the first ornate flourish at the end of a letter's stroke. What's more? All these script fonts come with some hidden treasures, aka glyphs. Here, I've compiled my latest favorites with the extended collections of special characters, swashes, alternates, and letters with those stylish "tails." Enjoy exploring these modern script fonts. They are great to have in your creative arsenal.

 

GLYPHS

These fonts come with dozens of beautiful alternates – glyphs. All the swirly alternatives of standard letters and characters will help you customize and elevate your design with minimal effort. The best way to access the glyphs is to use software that supports OpenType features, such as Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, CorelDraw or Affinity Designer.

Glyphs can be used in countless ways, from breaking the monotony of the headline to effectively leading the eye throughout the entire design piece. And, of course, they are just so much fun to explore and use.

Glyph Usage Example

 

However, if you prefer not to choose any alternatives to standard letters and symbols, you can still use any of these fonts in their original version for a variety of projects, from wedding invitations to social media quote posts. 


If you need to brush up on how to access and use glyphs, check this out: Font Tips: How to Easily Access and Use Glyphs. There are multiple ways to harness the power of hidden characters, even using your standard applications, such as Microsoft Word or Pages on a Mac.

For more typography inspiration, you can read my first article, Free Modern Script Fonts With Stylish Glyphs For Commercial Use, which started this font collection series.

 

OTF vs TTF 

When installing these fonts, make sure you choose the OpenType (.otf) font file. OTF files are the ones to contain custom ornate alternates unlike their TTF counterparts. Swashy variations of standard letters, custom ligatures, special characters, and other lovely extras are all hidden treasures in OpenType fonts.


FONT LICENSING

Creating a free account with Creative Fabrica allows you to download and use these fonts for commercial projects at no cost. You can create unlimited new digital and physical designs (quotes, sayings, names, and etc.) to sell. However, there are some usage restrictions under a commercial license you will need to get familiar with, such as converting individual font letters and numbers into different formats and selling those files. Please take a careful look at an overview of how to use fonts covered by a commercial license here.

However, in most cases, if you an Etsy seller or Cricut enthusiast, these fonts will cover many of your design needs.
