Heart fonts have been on the font scene for a little while now! They’re typically pretty popular with crafters – it’s so easy to create things, and the feature is built right into the font. They’re popular in a variety of design-related applications – shirts, mugs, and stickers…but they’re also popular on a professional front, too! Logo design is the most common usage that I see for fonts like this, because it gives the business owner a very simple way to communicate that they love what they do, or that the service or good they’re providing comes from their heart.
My Favorite Font with Hearts
Y’all are probably no stranger to Autumn Love. This font duo has been featured on my website multiple times, because I simply can’t get enough of it. I’m not sure if it’s normal for a designer to love one of their fonts so much, but I truly do love this one! I’m sure there’s some really bad joke in there, something about love letters or whatever, haha.
Autumn Love is a handwriting-style calligraphy font. It’s bouncy, super cute, and the letters are super legible. This is extremely important when introducing another design element, like the hearts, into the mix with a cursive font! It’s my most popular font with a connecting heart, no doubt!
Don’t you think this would be perfect for a Save the Date announcement or wedding invitations?! Check out the example below!
Tip: Fonts With Multiple Files Included Are More Versatile
Autumn Love is also pretty special because it’s a font duo – it comes with a handlettered sans font that so that you can automatically pair it with a second font right off the bat! This is the sort of thing that crafters and designers love – it makes it totally foolproof! These two fonts work perfectly hand-in-hand.
It also includes a variety of swash options – there’s a more simple left & right swash option, as well as left & right swash options that include a heart. I even have alternates for the lowercase i and j where the dot is a … you guessed it … heart. Plus, I have extra characters programmed where you can add your own little heart or grouping of hearts very easily to whatever design you’re working on!
You might be wondering how easy it is to use and connect words with the cute little heart feature – I usually get this question often. These alternate features are a piece of cake, and even if you don’t have super fancy-schmancy design software, like Adobe CC programs, you can still make use of these features! I have a blog post that goes over OpenType features here, but the long & short of it is that a simple copy/paste will do the trick from one program to another if you don’t have Adobe CC.
Autumn Love comes with a personal and commercial use license, so you can create to your heart’s content! (See what I did there?)
If you’re interested in adding some Autumn Love to your font collection, you can purchase from the link below! Once your payment is confirmed, you can download and begin using right away!
What Can You Use Heart Fonts For?
You can use these specialized fonts for nearly anything – a few of the features in files like these require accessing OpenType features using specific settings in other programs but if you wanted to use something fun like the hearts version of Bless Your Heart on a site page, you’ll be able to see the hearts in it with no special tools! This one comes with three different files for each one in the trio, too, so it’s pretty versatile.
Crafters, These Files Are Great For You!
Regardless of whether you’re using these on a web site or not, you can’t deny that this particular style of fonts is perfect for things like coffee cups, greeting cards, or other crafty items. I’ve actually got a blog series coming for just that, where I’ll be posting up a few specific use examples on a Cricut to feed even more fuel to the creative fire for y’all to use!
