Choosing fonts for your wedding invitations can be the most overwhelming part of the ordering process, but it doesn’t have to be! Often, our customers will opt for the fonts shown on the example invitation, which is obviously pretty straightforward. But one of the benefits of ordering a wedding invitation from The Green Kangaroo is ultimate customizability (if that’s even a word!) Whether you’re trying to match your personality or the personality of your event or venue, this first article in our font series introduces you to the types of fonts in our collection and what makes them special!
TGK’s fonts can basically be broken down into four different categories: Block Fonts, Formal Scripts, Contemporary Scripts, and Stylized Fonts.
We offer a nice variety of block fonts in three different styles: serif, sans serif and all-caps.
Formal scripts are by far the most popular among our customers, as they embody the idea of a classic wedding invitation. Many of our formal scripts are equipped several variations — or “glyphs” — of each letter, which allows us to create a rich, calligraphic feel.
Most of our stylized fonts have “strong personalities” and are usually found on our more modern invitation designs that pack a lot of punch! In other words, they’re not necessarily well-suited for just any invitation! They can also be used as accent fonts, paired with a block/block or block/script combo on milder designs. If you’re not sure about using one of these on your order, we’re more than happy to lend our opinion!
Make sure to check back next week for the second article in our font series, which will cover font pairing! Plus, we’ll include a downloadable, printable chart of ALL our fonts so you can get to know them up-close-and-personally!
