There are literally thousands of formal script typefaces available, both free and commercial. They’re used a lot for invitations, scrolls and situations where elegant typography is called for.

One of the most important rules to remember when using formal script fonts is to never, ever set them in all caps. Ever. They become nearly impossible to read when all the letters are in capitals. The other thing to remember is to use them sparingly.


Casual scripts
Casual scripts look like more regular handwriting and are less formal. They can still have strokes that vary in width but are not as sophisticated looking as the formal scripts. Some examples are

BlackJack

Zephyr Script

The same rules apply for the casual script fonts. Use them sparingly and mainly for headings or very short pieces of text. What other script fonts do you use in your design work?
