Sometimes men just need to be men. This can be quite the challenge when translating masculinity into a language recognized visually. Lucky for you, we’ve put together a list of type-faces that amplify manly attributes. These type-faces can be used for any project you may send to an online printing company, and many are even @font-face compatible for web design.
What is “masculine”, anyway? For the purposes of this roundup, we looked for fonts in three general categories: Slab serif, Western/Stencil, and Distressed fonts. These general categories emphasized what we think of as masculine features and translate well into designs.
Slab-serif fonts are great for added stability. The extra weight added to the serifs help declare the letters without allowing them to blend in. This genre of font is sure to add boldness to any design.
