Chalk Fonts

About Chalk Fonts

Chalk fonts are fonts that simulate the writing on a chalkboard. If you want to create a chalk/crayon effect for chalkboard related graphics for schools, learning courses, educational websites and posters etc, then a chalk font is most suitable to use. Chalk fonts and designs take on a vintage look, so you can consider chalk fonts as well for projects where a vintage feel is needed like post cards, wedding invitations.

Depending on your projects, there are various styles of chalkboard fonts available such as serif, slab serif, hand-lettered, sketched etc. For example, Lipstick designed by Canadian type deisgner Patrick Griffin is a typical chalk style font that has a casual look. The designer got the idea from his wife’s note written in red lipstick and he first wanted to create a font simulating the lipstick writing but soon realized that the texture of lipstick writing has a lot in common with chalk writing and then created this font named “Lipstick” based on a 1970s film type called Sidewalk.
