A Brief Description of Each Type of Fonts
Serif Fonts-Serif literally refers to the “tails” or lines added to the strokes of the letters. These types of fonts often have a more traditional look and feel.
Sans Serif Fonts-As Serif refers to the “tails” on the letters, San Serif means “without tails”. Sans Serif fonts have a more contemporary feel. They are also easier to read at small sizes.
Script Fonts-These are classic wedding invitation fonts. They can either appear to be hand written or in a calligraphy style with various flourishes.These are often best combined with a serif or sans serif font.
