Twelve Steampunk Fonts

I got a new computer and realized I needed to go download all my fonts again.  So while I was doing that I put together a collection of steampunk fonts.  These are all free fonts.

My criteria for choosing a font were: 1. I like it, 2. It feels steampunky to me, 3. It's not just a version of script (because there are a million of those), 4. It's not primarily goth instead of steampunk, 5. It's easy to read, 6. It's not a version of some well-known title text.

So this list is by no means complete, just some cool fonts that I've used in the past or that I found with some quick browsing.

Time to Get a Watch
This is the most obviously steampunk and the least practical font here.  But I couldn't NOT include it.

1942 Report
A nice distressed typewriter font.

I'm not totally sure about this one, but wanted some variety

Anarchistic Download

Exotica Download
I know I have several Circus style fonts on here, but they were too cool to pass up.

This is my favorite out of all of these, and the font I used on my business cards.

Bees Antique Handwriting
Yes, it's a script, but I think it would be really great for signatures on documents and the like.

  1. Wow!!! Thanks for these links! :-)

  2. great and varied set! thanks!

  3. Why in samples there is not "s" allowed? o.O

    1. WEIRD. How did I not notice that? And how did I manage to leave out the S in every single one? *is puzzled*

  4. I'm just beginning to play with steampunk things in scrapbooking and tags, and came across your blog when I searched for fonts. It's sooo much fun, and very different from what I ue to do.Thank you so much for the link to these!

  5. Thanks for a great list!

  6. Loved the first font. I am thinking of using it for my logo . Thanks a lot. Keep up the good work.

  7. This is going to help so much in my presentation on Steampunk!! Thanks!!

  8. I'm not sure if I just don't know how, but I have a mac and I downloaded the font but I have no idea where it is. Sorry. Such a newb.

    1. Sorry, I'm pretty much Mac illiterate. Is there a location things usually download to? On Windows there's a folder called Fonts that you need to put the files in to install them.

  9. Thanks for your work, hobby, passion, enjoyment of steam-punk and thank you for sharing.
