With the approaching Christmas holiday season, there comes a time for new solutions and new fonts. Web designers try to recreate the holiday spirit in their graphical works, and that’s why there comes a great demand in properly selected and thematically correct Xmas fonts.
Xmas fonts are necessary when:
- Creating Website Digital Designs
Creating Christmas themed banners, icons, and other website elements is a usual practice for every commercial site, whether it’s an online shop or a personal blog. Typography plays a huge role in the marketing strategy of every project.
- Creating Xmas Postcards
What could be nicer than getting a handmade postcard? People ready to spend their precious time making a self-made postcard, deserve special respect. They have two options to go for: either using graphic design software and printing one afterward on thick cardboard or making the postcard using craft materials. In both cases, using a set of premade fonts will help your postcard look stylish and neat. Also, it will help you complete the task much faster.
- Creating Custom Clothes/Dishes With a Printed Message
Another creative way of saying thank you or congratulations is printing a Xmas-related phrase or message on a T-shirt or mug. All you need is to purchase a plain T-shirt/mug of any color, prepare a layout with the appropriate design and font, and give it to custom printing services. To me, it’s a wonderful idea for a personalized Christmas gift.
I guess you guys are already excited about the upcoming holidays and maybe your working potential has dropped down to a minimal point. Who can actually withstand thoughts about cozy holiday evenings eating home baked gingerbread cookies and watching “Home Alone”? I also know my Xmas fonts collection can save you time and energy that one might spend on their search. Finally, you wouldn’t need to create a themed font manually, which takes even more time and efforts.
All the following fonts are free and not meant for commercial use. They work with any graphic editors. Just download the font by following the link included below the image, unzip the downloaded files, and copy them to the “Fonts” folder located on the “C” drive of your PC.
Based on current web design trends, I selected these 20 best free Christmas fonts:
1. Kingthing’s Christmas
Kingthing’s Christmas is a beautiful Christmas font reflecting the holiday spirit in the best possible way. Just look at these elegant “frosty” letters surrounded by pretty snowflakes. By downloading this font, you’ll get a full set of uppercase and lowercase letters.
2. One Starry Night
For lovers of loops and swirls, here is an incredibly stylish and eye-catching One Starry Night font. Although the font is quite elaborated in its design, one is completely readable. Works perfectly for short titles and available in uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers, and a few symbols.
3. Christmas Tree
In the Christmas Tree font, each of the letters is placed inside a tiny evergreen tree. This font can be used not only for winter holidays but also for any kind of websites or topics that have to do with trees and nature.
4. Candy Cane
Candy Cane is indeed a true Christmas treat. No wonder, after looking at this font with black and white stripes (like those in a candy cane), it automatically reminds us of this well-known sweet with the minty taste. Candy Cane font includes uppercase, lowercase, and a few symbols.
5. Christmas Card
I am a fan of old vintage Christmas cards, so I was very happy to find a font that was used in postcards decades ago. Just look at it and you’ll see how tough it would be to recreate the font manually. With the premade one, you can create any text in such an old-fashioned style in a matter of a few clicks.
6. Bodie MF Holly
This is a free Christmas font featuring holly leaves and little shining stars on each letter. You can download this free Christmas font for Windows or Mac.
7. Christmas Lights
In the Christmas Lights font, each letter of the text is put inside a Christmas light bulb hanging from a cord. One features 2 options: outdoor and indoor. Comes with a full set of uppercase/lowercase letters, a few symbols, and special characters.
Remember the “Frosty the Snowman” animated cartoon? The title of the cartoon was written in a special font and now you can download and use it at no cost. Frosty features a fun text surrounded with beautiful small snowflakes.
9. Santa’s Sleigh
Santa’s Sleigh is another free Christmas font with a vintage vibe. By downloading it, you receive three different font versions – regular, bold, and deluxe.
10. Dear Santa
Dear Santa is one of the most popular font styles among all Christmas fonts that you will see almost everywhere during this season. It looks like the handwritten text of a child who wrote a Christmas letter to Santa. The association with childish handwriting can be used for some kind of marketing strategy to increase sales of such products as children toys, clothes, entertainment, etc.
