Authentic Designs With Free and Premium Vintage Fonts

Vintage fonts collection

Vintage looking fonts consist of script, serif, and tall bold san serif fonts (we’ll see examples of all three below – and there are also graphic design examples and case studies to get a better idea of how they work together).  The best way to combine these fonts is to use the bold tall san serif and script fonts for titles and headers while the serif fonts are used for the main text.
