The letters of this font are quite voluminous. The style looks unique because of the look of dripping blood. It can be interpreted in different ways because the color of the letters is black. However, it looks quite interesting and creative.
2. Deutsche Zeitschrift
It’s no secret that the Germans are the biggest fans of this holiday and they know how to celebrate it so that all the neighbors have fun. They offered designers the following font with sharp corners and sweeping zigzags. It is not completely black, but it has some kind of shading, which, of course, gives it charm.
3. CF My Bloody Valentine
It is a more intense version of the first font since there is an emphasis on blood drops. They are even larger than the letters themselves, so they create not just an inscription, but a complete graphic element. This option will look spectacular on posters and flyers and work as a cover for a social network.
4. Blood Of Dracula
‘Blood of Dracula’ is also another style where special attention is paid to the graphics of blood drops that seem to flow down the letters. It is no wonder that this style direction was chosen because Halloween is a day that is associated with blood, witches, horror, and darkness. This is a rather impressive visual concept since the letters resemble ancient scriptures or hieroglyphs with a huge number of drawings and geometric patterns.
5. Deep Woods
This option seems quite lush due to its design. There is a vine around each letter. It symbolizes the forest – the place of the coven of witches on All Saints’ Day. The hidden meaning can be understood quite accurately, which is an attractive thing about this style.
6. Zombie Holocaust
Well, what is Halloween without zombies? Think about this when you decide to use this style option. Asymmetry, crooked patterns, lines of different thicknesses make this font look like if it is scratched on a wall. It will look quite stylish on any Halloween banner.
7. Bosque Encantado
This style option is more sophisticated; the lines are thin but noticeable and interesting. The stylization technique resembles a tree or bushes.
8. Barbed Ink
A black cat is a constant symbol of the Halloween celebration and any evil spirits. Therefore, we could not pass it by as it would be complete ignorance of traditions. Barbed Ink stands out from other fonts significantly as its letters resemble the cat’s eyes or a whole cat’s silhouette. At first glance, they may seem to be sloppy, but in fact, all angles and shapes are neatly designed.
9. Tango Macabre
Skeleton letters is an interesting solution. This font is perfect for art posters because it is creative and unusual. However, it is important to mention that if you use it next to drawings, it may get lost and be unreadable. Therefore, it is best to place it on a plain area. The letters look funny and attractive; they catch your eye and attention.
It is a usual graffiti design; the letters are made in the brush strokes style.
11. Riky Vampdator Normal
This font option is perfect for posters with pictures because it is clear and catchy. There are no unique patterns here, but it looks unusual and thematic.
A skull in every letter is a fun and extraordinary solution. Firstly, it looks impressive. Secondly, it is noticeable and catchy. If you use ‘Calaveras’ for posters or outdoor advertising, your upcoming party won’t be unnoticed. However, it is important not to overdo it. Too much text with this font can have a high visual load.
13. Dirty Liar
Sсuffed lettering style is one of the things that will never go out of style. It looks creative and unusual on any art object; this is why it is widely used.
14. DeathRattle BB
These are not just printed letters – it is a stroke font. This gives some negligence to the look, but it is still pretty even and readable.
15. Día de los muertos
This pack is a set of unusual characters that you can easily use in your headlines, on posters, flyers, and advertising posts on social networks. Here you will find the most creepy but interesting emoticons – skulls, skeletons, candles, witches, tombstones, and much more.
16. Jack O
Without a doubt, pumpkin is an absolute symbol of Halloween, so the font with this vegetable will not surprise anyone. However, it does not look corny and boring – it is unusual and creative. Also, remember not to overdo it with this font and not to overload the reader. Make the inscription short and noticeable.
17. Broken Ghost
In this set, you will see web and patterns around letter elements, which makes an attractive compositional solution.
18. Pumpkinhead font
A set of emoticons with different emotions of pumpkin is the trend of this year.
19. Anonymous Clippings
The name of the font fully demonstrates its design. Do you know this famous movie scene when a criminal writes a letter to his victim cutting letters from newspapers or magazines? No matter which movie you like, such scenes are quite common in different genres. Criminals do it in order to remain incognito and not to expose themselves in handwriting. The set of these letters is created according to the same principle – all characters are different in style, size, and even color. This creates a unique style.
20. La Flama y La Font Family
These fiery patterned bright letters are quite difficult to read. So we recommend that you use them extremely carefully. Do not write a lot of text using ‘La Flama y La Font Family’.
21. October Crow
The letters of this font look as if they have been scratched out by a sinister crow. The mind instantly conjures a huge black bird with evil eyes, razor-sharp break, and massive claws. Although real crows are harmless, this font looks spooky and eerily.
22. Nightmare 5
Although the letters in this font are placed very close to each other, they are still quite large and are very suitable for a headline on some spectacular advertising poster for All Saints’ Day.
23. Scary Halloween
Another creepy and fascinating font pack is presented below. It is “decorated” with smudges of blood. Despite the banality of such a technique, the concept has its visual uniqueness, so it has become widely used for promotional items for Halloween.
The composition of this font is quite impressive. Its author left an empty space and scuffed elements inside the letters and emphasized the black outline. This solution will be quite suitable for dark color posters, mainly in black.
25. Friday 13
Friday the 13th is the second most eerie day after Halloween. It is not surprising that it is often associated with black cats, black witchcraft, and other dark things. None of the above is presented here, but the font is quite interesting due to the stylization of the brush strokes.
26. Cold Night for Alligators
This font features relatively thin outlines of letters and a large number of patterns, serifs, additions to them. This is how we can briefly describe this font set. It looks impressive and would be suitable even for the cover of a horror movie.
27. Black Widow
The Web is not only an indicator of a poor housewife but also an attribute of All Saints’ Day. Just like a spider itself. It is not surprising because so many people are afraid of spiders, and Halloween is a day of darkness, fear, and supernatural forces. That is why the web is so widely used in various design schemes. Here you can see how cleverly the developer managed to create outlines of letters from the web patterns. Creative, right?
28. Bloody Stump
Similar font designs have already been provided in this article; however, this one is a bit different from others because of its bold letters.
29. BN Manson Nights
This font option will be a perfect match with the fire or fog on the poster. It will look good on any light background.
30. Riot Act
This bone and guts style is something new. It looks interesting, creative, and a little funny. This option can be used for comics or children’s posters.
31. DOKTOR Terror
The letters in this font are filled in with strokes. It is a typical horror style that is easily recognizable and catchy. By the way, the text is quite easy to perceive (if you do not make it very small), so you can even write a few lines on a poster.
Visually, the ‘Ambrosia’ font has nothing to do with Halloween and its symbols, but thanks to its unusual patterns, you can easily use this option on Halloween items.
33.CF Night Of The Damned
These are bold letters with pictures of witches, skulls, and zombies inside them. This font looks pretty creepy, but at the same time, it perfectly emphasizes the atmosphere of the upcoming day and a party. This option will look great on outdoor advertising or even in the photo zone.
34. Demon Sker
There are no special Halloween attributes to this font, but it is widely used in thematic logos. It will be appropriate for both light and dark backgrounds, for drawings and plain canvas.
How to choose a font?
Each designer chooses the font based on the poster style or application area. If you have a lot of images and use a wide color range, thin letters may get lost. So, we recommend that you give preference to bolder options without drawings and excessive design. If your poster is not too rich in attributes, you can use ‘Black Widow’, ‘Cold Night for Alligators’, ‘Zombified’, ‘October Crow’, ‘Broken Ghost’, or ‘Jack O’.
There are universal options for almost any design, such as BN Manson Nights Font, Bloody Stump Font, Scary Halloween, DeathRattle BB Font, and Riky Vampdator Normal Font, or Creepsville. Please be careful with the creative ones like ‘Riot Act’, ‘Anonymous Clippings’, ‘Dirty Liar’, ‘Calaveras’, ‘Tango Macabre’, or ‘Barbed Ink’. They can be unreadable in some cases and ruin the whole picture.
The best way to choose is random selection. Choose the options that you like the most and use them one by one. Immediately remove the options that look overdone.
Also, remember that the font can be easily read on a simple headline, and if you want to write an entire text to a client or guest using it, it may look funny and unprofessional because not all fonts are easy to read.
