Creating business cards can be challenging, especially if you’re unsure of which font to use. There are tons of business card fonts available, but choosing the right one is so much more than just selecting a font that “looks good” and calling it a day.
While we’re on the topic of fonts for business cards, we’ll also give you some tips for choosing the right font and also answer some common questions.
But first, here’s a list of the best free fonts for business cards.
Montserrat is one of the most popular and widely used business card fonts. You’ll notice that many logos, banners, and promotional materials use this font because it’s easy to read – and that’s the beauty of it.
6. Playfair Display
13. Alegreya SC
The Alegreya SC font uses all capitals instead of having different glyphs. The only difference between capitals and non-capitals is the text height. This makes Alegreya SC unique, but it can be a problem as you would need to use capitals on your whole business card, and this can be undesirable. This font is best used on a simple business card with minimal details.

21. Marcellus SC
This is another extremely popular font that is used on logos for many football (or soccer?) clubs throughout Europe. The Marcellus SC font displays strength and authenticity.
