    Favorite Vintage-Inspired Fonts?

    I work for a vintage-inspired site and am always on the hunt for new, modern fonts with vintage-inspiration or a vintage-feel. Lovely script fonts, fonts with slight distressing, but they still have to be clear enough to read in emails and on small homepage images. What are your favorites?

    I still havent found my go to vintage-script, as far as the distressed look goes so i tend to do that manualy wth masks or textures. Perhaps Rought Love, check it out :)
    Also, Ondise seems popular now and also Thristy Rough for sth more modern...


    As for regular sans witha printed or distressed feel, which i prefere ove script, I would go for Brandon Printed, Eveleth or Nexa Rust. Hope I helped a bit!

    I'm really loving Selfie. It's a vintage inspired script.

    The Charcuterie set my be good for you? Lots of different styles but overall vintage and pretty. http://lauraworthingtontype.com/family/charcuterie/

    Most of Laura Worthington's fonts fit your request really, not looked for a while but Boucherie looks very flexible too (for vintage treatments).

    How "vintage"? Please be more precise.

    If we are talking stylish industrial vintage, I would say Brandon Printed works fine:

    This will give you a good overview of other distressed fonts:

    I mostly use Geared pro, EcuyerDax, Brandon, Gin... Font Brothers is also good, but a little bit too used.
    Regarding script fonts, I suggest you Dianna.

    I really like brandon Grotesque (printed) and some mentioned above such as Thirsty Rough. Hummingbird also looks good, but it's not distressed, just a cursive!

    Filosofia by Massimo Vignelli is a great redraw of Bodoni, and it does have a quirky Unicase. Highly legible.
