Cool Fonts for Sketchbook Pro

Sketchbook Pro was designed for creating art, but sometimes you need to add some text—and if, like me, you’re better at drawing than handwriting, a nice handwritten font is a lifesaver. You can also create a unique signature with a font! So here’s my hand-picked collection of fonts I recommend for Sketchbook Pro users.

Harmonie Script (OTF, TTF, EOT, SVG, WOFF)

This is the font I used in this tutorial. It looks very natural, very much handwritten, so it will perfectly accompany artistic architecture sketches.

Original Burger Font (OTF)

If you need some bold handwritten letters, something that could be drawn with chalk or a thick marker, this font will help you achieve this effect. The pack also includes graphic elements that you can use in your artwork!

Rainy Days (OTF, TTF, WOFF)

If you like drawing with digital ink, this font style will help you add some text that perfectly fits the style of the rest of the artwork. Ink drops included!

Eiffell Brush Script Font (OTF, TTF, WOFF)

Do you like watercolors? Then this font will fit your art style perfectly! It’s beautifully decorative, and it comes with a set of high-resolution watercolor textures.

Simplicity Typeface (OTF, WOFF)

In art, sometimes simpler is better! That’s the philosophy behind this font. It’s so neat and simple that it will look great on every type of artwork, but especially in the company of loose sketches.

Halosense Script (OTF, TTF)

This font will look very elegant on a white background—it looks like a work of art on its own! It will be perfect as a signature, but you can also incorporate it into your drawing.

Billow Font (OTF, TTF, WOFF)

Simulate a brush-painted text with this beautiful font! The pack includes a set of ink splatters that you can add for a more convincing effect.

Bird House Script (OTF, TTF)

Do you need something that looks quick and energetic, but also clean and stylish? This font will be perfect for you! Unlike many decorative fonts, it’s easily readable, without losing its handwritten character.

Clark & Lou (OTF, TTF)

Are you looking for something truly unique? This font will allow you to write in a style that immediately catches the attention of the viewer. It’s hard to believe that it’s a font, and not real handwriting!

Enigma Typewriter Sans Font (TTF)

Finally, if you’re into more technical stuff, you can add some character to your artwork by simulating the effect of genuine typewriting. It may not be clean, but it’s not a bug—it’s a feature!
