Each of these handwriting fonts has their own designer. Below, you'll find the name of each the fonts. Simply click on the font and you'll be taken to its download page (I use daFont for most of my faves and that is likely where you'll end up). Please be sure to check each font designer's terms of usage that is available on the fonts' download pages. Some of these are okay for commercial use, some are only okay for personal use (you'll have to click through to see each individual terms). 

The fun handwritten quality of these fonts is wonderful to work with on a variety of projects. The fact that handwriting was created into a font creates a super consistent look to your lettering in any manner you decide to make use of these. Enjoy all of these fun freebies. Again, just click on the name of the fonts you like to download.

How to Install these 12 Free Handwriting Fonts

When available, look for font files that end with '.otf' (Open Type Fonts) over the ones that end with '.ttf' (True Type Fonts). These otf files are newer font files that contain both the screen and printer font data in a single component...making them a bit more user friendly. They work well on both PC and Mac systems. Before installing any of these handwriting fonts, you'll probably need to unzip the file they are in first.

On most PCs, right click on the unzipped font file you'd like to install, and select Install.

On most Macs, after downloading the font file, locate it on your computer. Double click it and the installation process should begin on its own. If it doesn't, look in the bottom right corner of the dialogue box that pops up when you've double clicked the font. There should be an Install button.
