20 Free Famous Headline Fonts

‘Extra, extra, read all about it,’ paper boys used to shout in order to sell their only ware. This advertising technique is the grandfather of all we see going on today and has been in use since the beginning of mankind. Or an open market system, whichever came first. With the alphabetization of the masses the shouted ad lost some of its grandeur and the visual one came to the forefront and the game changed from yelling off the top of one’s lungs and being heard up to distances of 400 feet to finding the perfect combination of location do display the message and font in order to gain attention.

The importance of fonts online is even greater because of the exposure a project gets, possibly hundreds of millions of people could stop by or browse away because their attention was peaked or not. Finding the right one is a quest and struggle worthy of a XV century epic ballad. Or you can just go to urbanfonts.com and check out their library and save a lot of time and minstrel’s strings and voice. Go ahead and download free fonts that will help you hook your viewers and here are 20 examples of what you will be getting:
