35+ Funky Cartoon Fonts for Logos and Headers



There are a lot of free fonts available online. Sites like Dafont and 1001Fonts are invaluable repositories for designers, because they give us such a wide range of font options.

Cartoon fonts are one type of font that rarely get much praise. The problem with them is that by definition, they’re gimmicks. They are never the most legible fonts, I’d never recommend using one for content, and quite often, they just look foolish.

But when it comes to creating a memorable logo easily, a good cartoon font can be a great first step. They’re distinctive, look great in large sizes, and can be easily modified and re-colored in Photoshop to make it that little bit more unique.

Of course, that only works with certain styles of design. If your site is all bubbly and colorful, it’s worth considering. If you’re more minimalist or professional, stay well clear!

So with that in mind, here are 37 of the best free cartoon fonts we could find. Let us know if you put any of them to good use!
