Here we go again. You know I love fonts, alllmosttt as much as I love free stuff. If you caught my last post on the top 10 free script fonts, you’ll definitely need some fab and free serif fonts to coordinate with them. Also, be sure to keep an eye out for my font pairing guide, coming out soon! Because pairing fonts like a pro ain’t for the faint of heart. (Thinking of that as a tagline–keep or toss? I’m totally kidding.) Anyway, here you go–my favorite serifs, all in one place.
Design Tip: A serif font is one with the little lines on the ends of each character. They’re mainly there for helping to move the eye across the page when you’re reading printed material, but in this digital age, the lines are mostly for decoration. Serif fonts are great for more formal designs like wedding invitations and open houses. They look best paired with a sans serif (no lines on the end of the characters) rather than another serif font. In fact, please don’t pair two serif fonts unless you’re Pablo Picasso or someone legit like that who can pull it off.
