25 Free Vintage and Retro Fonts

Last week we posted a showcase of vintage advertisements, and so we thought it would be helpful to provide a list of some resources that can be used in your own vintage or retro-inspired design.

These fonts are ideal for creating that vintage feel in your work. If you find some fonts that you like, click through the links and you’ll be able to see more about the font and download. The license and terms vary from one font to the next, so be sure to check those details before using.
