Silence might be golden, but if you'd rather speak up, or put words in someone else's mouth, use one of Comicraft's Word Balloon Fonts! All of our BL fonts include Western European accents, and an ever-increasing number feature our incomparable Crossbar I Technology™ to put that pesky character in exactly the right spots.
The traditional style of comic book lettering is in all-uppercase. Comicraft fonts feature alternate versions of each uppercase letter, which automatically substitute for a natural, pen-drawn appearance. Characters on the upper case keys tend to be narrower for longer words like PROFESSOR and ADAMANTIUM when you need to squeeze them into tight corners.
With 21st century improvements in print quality and the move towards screen readers, upper and lowercase fonts have become a practical option for lettering comic books. Lowercase letters provide a softer, friendlier, more approachable look that many find easier to read.
Not every dialogue font suits every purpose. If you’re concerned about fitting copious amounts of copy into tight spaces in a comic strip, here are a selection designed for that very purpose!
Unique and distinctive dialogue fonts — often designed for, and named after, a specific artist or creator — many of our not-yet-mainstream comics customers pick one of these quirky fonts to give their project an indy comics edge!
