This font is named after the Scottish novelist Alexander Trocchi and is a design that is derived from a number of old faces from the English type cutter Vincent Figgins. It’s designed for use as text and also display type.
Volkhov is designed by Ivan Petrov as a four-wright family that is well suited for the complex text being prominent and also contemporary. If you will use it in Bold you will observe a slight increase compared to the normal weight.
This font is designed by Olga Karpushina and Alexei Vanyashin and is a Didone display typeface for short blocks of text and headlines. We recommend to use from 16x and above because of its high contrast.
This font will give your banner design a timeless classic look with a unique modern flair. It’s a great fit if you want to use a brush script that is getting your design to the next level.
5. Playfair Display
This font is a great choice for titles and headlines. Even if it’s a transitional design, stylistically Playfair can accompany fonts like Minion Pro, Garamond or Georgia, where these fonts are used for body text.
Oswald was re-drawn to better fit the pixel grid of standard digital screen. That means it is a great choice to be used for banner ads, social media visuals or anything else related to the internet.
7. Old Standard
Did you know that the “Old Standard” name was selected as an opposed to the “Obyknovennaya Novaya” (“New Standard”) typeface? Even if it’s not an original name but as Google Fonts said “it’s a good choice for a revival of the most common letter type of the early 20th century”
This is one of my favorite fonts. Julieta Ulanovsky was inspired by the traditional neighborhood of Buenos Aires called Montserrat to design a typeface that rescues the beauty of the urban typography from the first half of the twentieth century.
9. Lobster Two
As you can see, Lobster Two is the new updated and improved family version of The Lobster Font.
10. Libre Baskerville
Libre Baskerville is a font that is optimized for body text (we recommend to use 16px). With a taller x-height, wider counter and a less contrast it is placed on the American Type Founders Baskerville from 1941.
This font is a great choice if you want to use a modern slab serif for your Christmas banners. You can add it in your headlines or titles and even in paragraphs of text.
12. Amatic SC
This font was created by the same designer who made Oswald, Vernon Adams. Amatic SC can be easy to use for headlines in banner ads but also in small description text of the visual.
13. Bree Serif
The “Bree” font was originally launched in 2008 and was one of the great fonts because of its authentic style and glamorous appearance. It was designed by Veronika Burian & José Scaglione.
14. Bad Script
If you are looking for a handwriting font that can make your banner ads and social media post more humanely than Bad Script is your…best choice. It is created to resemble the designer’s own handwriting while making it more precise and sleek.
So here you go, the best banner fonts you could use in your Christmas cards, banner ads or even holiday social media posts.
