Here is installment two in my Font Favorites series. Right now I’m working on our annual family newsletter to send with our Christmas cards. This year, I want to use a vintage-inspired design scheme (think 1950’s) and, of course, 1950’s-style fonts. As I searched the internet and my font collection for the perfect typeface for my newsletter greetings, I found seven wonderful vintage-style script fonts to share with you. They make perfect retro titles and headlines. Click on the previews or font names to go to their download pages.

|Advert I love the just-painted, brush-stroke feel of this typeface.|
|Pacifico Use this rounded retro font with great capital letters for eye-catching titles.|
|Marketing Script Marketing Script reminds me of the old hand-painted painted signs found in grocery stores when I was younger.|
|Quigley Wiggly The creator of this font found it on a toothpick wrapper and developed it further. I enjoy its thick and thin lines.|
|Ballpark Weiner Ballpark Weiner brings to mind old-style athletic jackets and t-shirt lettering.|
|Blessed Day Look at those delicious capitals! I love the eye-catching curves of this font.|
