So, Halloween is here again, that creepy time of the year when everyone tries to get some, nay, lots and lots of fun. As a result, everyone is getting really excited and happy. Things are snowballing into a frenzy with the preparation and everything else. Banners, posters, and even websites are springing up here and there, all Halloween themed.
Therefore Halloween fonts come in handy at this time, especially for designers. It won’t be proper to design a Halloween themed banner or website without using one or two Halloween fonts.
This is because they’re really great if you want to create that horror effect which comes with Halloween.
So I went out there and searched, and got some really great Halloween fonts. Fonts have a way of giving meaning to words, irrespective of what you’re saying. These fonts really make everything look evil and full of terror.
You could write “I love you,” or “I care about you,” in these fonts, and present a really spooky feeling due to the way they words are written.
But before I show you these fonts, I’d like to drop some cool facts about Halloween.
- Dressing up on Halloween comes from the Celts, Jack o’ Lanterns too.
- The moniker “Halloween” actually comes from the Catholics.
- Halloween and the candy industry supposedly influenced Daylight Savings Time.
- A full moon on Halloween is extremely rare.
- Halloween is the second-most commercial American holiday of the year.
