Script fonts resemble cursive handwriting and can be expressive, playful, or formal, depending on which one you choose! But what they all share is the ability to bring a unique identity to your design.

Script fonts can be hard to read, which is why they are best for an ornamental addition, used sparingly and at a large size.
