In this post, you’ll find ten retro font ideas for your next graphic design project.
I have always thought I was born two generations too late, and I would have loved to have been around to see the 1920s-1960s. Since the mid-20th-century is one of my favorite time periods, a lot of my projects tend to have a bit of a vintagey-retro flair to it. Today I am sharing my favorite retro fonts that you have probably seen me use many times before, whether it be in my blog artwork, free printables, in my Etsy store or one of my professional design projects.
If you are a regular reader, you know that I post about fonts quite frequently and especially love to share places where you can find free fonts for your personal projects. While this list includes paid fonts that I have purchased for my work, there are a handful of freebies hiding in there too!
Retro Font Ideas
