What Is the Most Timeless Font?
Serif fonts are traditional fonts. Readers associate this font with trustworthiness, so you’ll see it with fashion, beauty, and spa brands like Dior and Rolex. Serif fonts add a small line or mark at the end of letters to finish them off.
Serif fonts are easy to read while having a subtle elegance, making them a stunning letterpress font choice for wedding stationery.
What Is the Classiest Font?
If you are going for classy, you can’t go wrong with a script font.
However, letterpress script isn’t the same as the one you learned in school. Our wedding invitation designers took the timeless look of cursive and added a unique flare to come up with the script you see on your invitation.
What Is the Prettiest Font to Use?
Calligraphy fonts are always near the top of the prettiest font lists.
Calligraphy is an elegant and ornamental cursive font. Calligraphy takes on many forms, from subtle traditional calligraphy to unique letters with extra embellishments that take the font to the next level.
What Is the Simplest Font?
Sans-serif fonts are the simplest font. They will never go out of style. You’ll recognize Helvetica as one of the most famous sans-serif fonts. This family of clean fonts uses small strokes and no embellishments at the end of strokes.
While sans-serif fonts are rarely the center of attention on invitations and save-the-dates, they make appealing complementary fonts. Because they don’t have distracting embellishments, this font family won’t take away from the primary font on your invitation.
They are also easy to read, even when small, making them work well to give the time and address for your wedding.
