25 Free Chalkboard Fonts for Photoshop

Chalkboard design started to become trendy years ago, especially in the food and beverage industry. 

It’s true that chalkboard fonts give a handwritten feeling that makes the design more alive. Many restaurants and bars use chalkboard lettering for menu design because it feels “warmer” than standard printed fonts. 

Remember when I was studying creative illustration in Barcelona, my art director told me that restaurants would pay a good price for illustrators to make a chalkboard style outdoor menu and wall design. 

Well, not everyone is an illustrator or has the time. In Photoshop, you can quickly create a chalkboard effect and all you have to do is choose the right font. 

In this article, I’ll share with you 25 free chalkboard fonts that you can download and use in Photoshop to make chalkboard-style designs. 

Note: Although they are all free, it’s always a good idea to read the font licenses on their websites before you download and use them.
