Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us, and in honor of it, I decided to showcase Valentine Day-esque fonts because that is what you do.

Love & Trust is two things you need from the people you love and adore.

With this font, you get two different types: one with the hearts and one without. The one with the hearts work well when it’s huge. You want to be able to see the hearts. :) I love the little hearts on each of the letters. It almost looks like little butterflies. Plus, I love the way certain letters (like ‘L’ and ‘T’) extend under or above the other letters.

I love fonts. You can say I’m obsessed with collecting them all. It’s no secret to those who know me. You’re Just My Type is a new feature where I showcase the fonts I absolutely adore and use. And hopefully, you will love the fonts I pick. 

Today, I’m showcasing a few free alternatives to this lovely paid font:

Designed by Emily Conners of Emily Lime Design

I absolutely adore Carolyna Pro because calligraphy! It looks so epic. I first saw it on the blog header of Oh Chrys and I instantly fell in love. (It’s those capital letters and the ‘r’ and ‘y.’ Total hearts in my eyes.)

These free ones below aren’t totally like Carolyna Pro exactly because Carolyna Pro is one of a kind, but I tried my best to find free alternatives (with a little help from the internet).

Designed by Måns Grebäck.

When you get Sverige Script, there are actually two types: decorated and clean. Sverige Decorated Script is far loopier. To me, it just screams TA DA (in a similar fashion to Carolyna Pro). I love that it looks like it has a hook (because of those loops and embellishments.) And Sverige Clean Script is basically as it says. It’s a calmer version of the decorated script. Just think yin and yang but with fonts. ;D

(In the picture, the font name is in Sverige Decorated Script and the quote is in Sverige Clean Script.)

Designed by Font Cafe.

I sigh at the beauty of Voluptate. I love the thickness of the letters. There’s nothing flimsy or weak about it. If you do use this font, just know that it’s a demo. You can only use the lowercase and the capital V. (I believe you have to pay to have the capital letters and probably other glyphs.)

Do people write like this? I just want to write my q’s and k’s like that. Quicker is softer and is closer in thinness to Carolyna Pro. I have the urge to sigh and pet it. Don’t be surprised if you come across me staring at it with a dreamy gaze.

Okay, Janda Celebration Script isn’t really like Carolyna Pro, but those loops, people. : DDD

AND EXTRA BONUS:

Even if you can’t afford Carolyna Pro, Emily Lime Design put out a free Carolyna Word that has set phrases like “Lol,” “Southern Belle,” “whatevvver,” “Hot Mess,” and many more. ;D

I do have to give credit to the Wedding Bee board for some of these choices because I wouldn’t have seen the similarity until somebody tells me.

The majority of these fonts are demos of paid ones. It doesn’t have the full benefits of the font, but hey, it still works. Also, none have the epicness of the ‘r’ in Carolyna Pro, but that’s to be expected since it’s one of a kind. ;D

Which font do you think is similar? Any one you absolutely love more than the others? Do you want to see more posts like this? (If you want, you can leave links of paid fonts over here so I can attempt to find free alternatives for you. :) )

I love fonts. You can say I’m obsessed with collecting them all. It’s no secret to those who know me. You’re Just My Type is a new feature where I showcase the fonts I absolutely adore and use. And hopefully, you will love the fonts I pick. 

Designed by One by Four Studio.

Need a match? Forget those handy lighters. It’s all about striking a match against a coarse surface to get that fire going! I give you a Matchbook!

What it makes me think of: matches (obviously) and futuristic-ness (whatever that means). I can make a long list of what I associate with it, but I think that’s mainly because of the name. I like the narrowness of the letters. It’s very modern. Everything about it remind me of matches. Ha!

Designed by Lee Batchelor.

Two things Mathilde remind me of: A Very Long Engagement film and how much I wish I remembered the French I learned in high school. Ooh la la!

There is something awfully familiar about this particular font. I swear I’ve seen it actually written out on paper. It sort of looks like my handwriting when I was in fifth/sixth grade or maybe even middle school, but then again, it doesn’t? Maybe?

Designed by David Rakowski.

Chalk is an excellent writing medium. Eraser makes me incredibly nostalgic about chalkboards.

When I was little, I begged my mom for one because I loved writing on it. I loved hearing the clacking of the chalk against the board, feeling the chalk cover your fingers and trying not to get it all over my overalls, and feeling like you’re the teacher in a bedroom full of stuffed animals.

Designed by Dan Gneiding.

Ribbon makes me want to find some and wrap everything in sight. That desk light, ribboned. That book, ribboned. Need a hair-tied? Ribboned.

Much like the Metropolis font I showcased last week, this is perfect for titles (not sentences). I love the details— from the forked-tongue ends to the white line in the letters. For some reason, I’m expecting a surprise when I look at it. If I stare at it, a present wrapped up in ribbons will appear, right? ;D

Which font do you like? What about the commentary? Is four a good number of fonts to showcase? Or should I go back to five?

I love fonts. You can say I’m obsessed with collecting them all. It’s no secret to those who know me. You’re Just My Type is a new feature where I showcase the fonts I absolutely adore and use. And hopefully, you will love the fonts I pick. 

Designed by Vernon Adams of New Typography.

Amatic is my obsession. I have a tight leash around it because I love it and I don’t want my love to go away!

I don’t if you have noticed, but I use it on every banner and card I’ve made since I found the font back in November. (Friends can vouch for this.) Something about this font does it for me. I can’t pinpoint the reason why and I can’t even describe it. All I am able to say is I love it just because. That’s it. Do I need any more reason than that? Nope. I love what I love.

Designed by Claude.

I want a crown made of flowers because of Fleurs de Liane! I shall wear it and declare myself Queen of the Flower Fonts! Flower petals will fall from the heavens and I will laugh in delight!

Isn’t it gorgeous? I didn’t discover this font until this post, but what a find! Look at it! It’s so pretty! I love the way the flowers wrap around to shape the words. When I look at this font, I wish I had flower petals so I can toss them around. (I secretly wish I was a flower girl.) It makes me happy because floweeerrrsss.

Designed by Jenna Sue.

Jenna Sue is everything I wish my handwriting to be. It’s pretty and cute. I am quite envious of it because my handwriting is sloppy compared to this. Sometimes, when I’m writing, I have the urge to scold my handwriting, “why can’t you look like that?” while I gesture to Jenna Sue. C’mon, look at those flawless loops.

This font is absolutely perfect for any personal projects you have or to trick your friends thinking this is your handwriting when you actually have a non-readable one. (If you do the latter, my mouth is zipped. ;D)

Designed by Josip Kelava.

Metropolis comes from the industrial movement of the 1920′s where skyscrapers where born. “Using a double line technique, I wanted to create my own Art Deco style font that represented this era. The result is a bold, bumptious typeface with a stolidly calm disposition.”1

When you look at this font, tell me you thought of The Great Gatsby too. It’s that art deco influence, ya’ll! Every time I look at it, I can’t help but sing “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)” by Fergie. (Out of all the songs, that one is stuck in my head. *shakes head*) Can you just imagine the 1920s parties? Flapper dresses, the short bobs, the music, and the dancing. I have a soft spot for the 1920s because it was all so glamorous (and a bit depressing). And Metropolis exudes that 1920s feel.

This font isn’t the best for typing up sentences, but it’s perfect for titles. You can use it to get that 1920s vintage art deco feel on posters.

Designed by Tension Type.

Haven’t you ever dreamt of owning a typewriter? I know I did! (I had one, but I’m pretty sure it broke or it got too expensive to upkeep. :( ) My Underwood is so great. You can pretend you’re in the 1940s, hunched over your typewriter, trying to complete a newspaper article while your boss is yelling across the room for you to finish and your co-workers are smoking cigars and not answering the ringing telephones. I’d want to write an epic murder story with this font while I fast-talk like people did back then. (I dare you to not read this entire thing like those fast-talkers. ;D)

Unfortunately, you don’t get the clickety clack typewriter sound with this font, but never fear! I’m sure you can imagine it (and I’m pretty sure there’s a website for the sound).

What do you think of this new feature? Do you like the commentary?

I’m pretty content on how this post is structured. However, everything can change because it isn’t set in stone. I know I should have a theme, but I hate doing theme-type things. If I put similar looking fonts together, it all begins to all look the same, and I want to give you variety! I want to do posts where I showcase a paid font and the free alternatives, but I am totally not great at finding those. :P

If you have suggestions of how I should structure them or any constructive feedback, please tell me. I am open to all ideas! Please give me feedback over on this form. :)
