Poster Fonts

The text above is set in Helvetica™ compressed.
Poster fonts are eye-catching, expressive fonts that are highly legible from a distance. When designing a poster, it is often important to put as much information into as small of a space as possible. In these cases, bold condensed fonts can work the best! Our selection of poster type runs the gamut from good, legible fonts to super experimental display fonts that only work in very large sizes. We also have several all-caps headline faces that are especially creative.

Note: this page contains just a few of our personal favorite poster fonts. Use our usage search for ’Poster’ to find many more poster fonts in the Linotype Library.
