Spooky Fonts for Halloween
Where there is no imagination, there is no horror. — Arthur Conan Doyle
At this time of the year, we see an increased use in specialized fonts – starting with Halloween fonts. These types of fonts are popular because people like to link their event/promotion/idea with a specific holiday. Think about the emails that you have been receiving this month (or even the mailers that come to your physical mailbox) – many of them have probably been promoting Halloween sales and events. And they have possibly used a Halloween-themed font. You might have even received something using one of the fonts highlighted below!
You will see these fonts used mainly in email copy, images for emails and social media campaigns, or on printed materials, but you won’t see them used as a font on the main pages of a website – unless it is for a holiday-themed website such as Creepy Company.
