Fonts That Look Like Lace
Lace is characterised by its delicacy and inticacy, both of which can be captured in a font. ( Images)

You choose a font type based on the desired effect; blocky, pointy lettering for a circus-feeling, bubble, uneven letters for a younger, teenage feeling and elegant, curvaceous letters for a fancy occasion. Lace is a fine, intricate and expensive textile and is the epitome of femininity and elegance and appears extensively in evening wear, weddings and special occasions. For one of these occasions you will need lace-looking texts on invitations, programs and name tags and several fonts resemble lace.


Zapfino is a strong, curvaceous font that resembles lace. The script letters are long and bold, and when a word is typed the letters intertwine to create a calligraphy feeling. The line itself is uneven and is thin in some places and thick at others. Certain letters extend well beyond the others and intersect with the line underneath, much like lace. This font resembles an expensive bold scalloped lace and would be perfect for a wedding invitation or black tie event.


Handwriting-dakota is a loose, uneven font. It looks like someone's shorthand and the letter shapes are uneven and imperfect. The letters are curved and delicate and as the zapfino, the lines are uneven. The letters are rounded, not pointy. Handwriting-dakota resembles an antique, chunky Cluny lace because it, like lace, is imperfect. The lines are as delicate as lace, and the size is small, yet uneven and old-looking.

Apple Chancery

Apple Chancery is a narrow, neat font with elegant curves. This font is very refined and orderly with all letters in a straight line and all letters the same size proportionately. The curved lines and neatness of the font is reminiscent of a lace galloon. The shape of the letters, the fact that any letter capitalised has a fancy curved appendage and the even letters look like the scallop of an Alencon lace. The even bottom edge of the font is like a seam. This font would be perfect for any affair, casual or elegant, that requires a less ornate and more legible font.

Edwardian Script

Edwardian script is the classic angelic script font. The first or capitalised letter is big and ornate, the rest are small, tight and rounded. The lines are even, creating a very delicate feeling. The curves of the font look like a Battenburg lace, the broad curves of the first letter the basis of the lace, and the smaller letters, the netting. This font would be prefect for any elegant event but is versatile enough for a sophisticated birthday party.
