20 Bold Free Script Fonts That You Don’t Have to Be a Girl to Use

by on 17th September 2010 with 77 Comments


Today we bring you an awesome collection of free fonts that you can download and start using immediately. These fonts are scripts but tend towards the masculine side rather than being all swirly girly.

Give them a shot and let us know what you think!

Why Bold?

I was recently sorting through my fonts trying to find a good script for a project I was working on. I quickly became frustrated with all the feminine wedding fonts that I had to choose from. These are great for some projects, but definitely not appropriate for anything retro, masculine, or just plain fun.


To solve my problem I went in search of nice nice free thick scripts that I could use to round out my collection. Below are the twenty that I found and installed on my machine.



Black Rose






Marketing Script


VTC Bad Tattoo


Deftone Stylus






Hawaii Lover


Hawaii Killer


Angel Tears






Katy Berry




Machine Script






Walrus Gumbo


What Are Your Favorites?

Leave a comment below and let us know which of the fonts above you think are the best. Also be sure to leave a link to any free bold scripts that we missed!

By the way, I’m just kidding about all that girl stuff. Males and females have equal share in whatever fonts they choose to use so don’t go leaving any complaints in the comments! I mean c’mon, that Hawaii font has flowers in it!

  24. Laura Meider says:

    Thanks for sharing the above fonts, I particularly like Wrexham and Angel Tears.

    Although, I do really like the other fonts but I think these would need to be used in more of a specific design style, where as the ones I have chosen seem to be more general.

    I will defiantly bookmark this page for reference.

  44. matthew says:

    I think Ballpark is the best on this list. Maybe thats why I like bold script fonts. They’re masculine

  45. J Atkinson says:

    I find the title of this article offensive.

  46. JD says:

    ‘Creampuff’ is a rip off of Lobster
