Fonts for packaging can help attract customers to the product. We present some tips on which font to use.

Designs of most custom packaging usually have the product logo as the focal part in the center of the box. There should also be a catchy tagline that would be readable.  The fonts used must be able to catch the customer’s eye and the branding message and tone needs to convert potential customers into buying ones.

The font type will make a huge difference in the look and feel of the packaging.  How does the font make the customer feel? Is it fun to see or a serious one? Fun packaging involves bright colors and the design should be fun as well. The packaging must be clear and cheerful.

Font Types

The following font types would be ideal forp packaging:

  1. Serif Fonts

The serif fonts is one of the oldest known font. It has a serious and classic look. The Times New Roman is one serif font.  Best used for newspapers and books. Nowadays, there are many options derived from this font.


2. Sans Serif Font

4, Decorative Fonts

Font Size

The size of packaging fonts should be prominent and readable.  It should not be so big that it overpowers the other fonts.  The most important message or elements must be bigger.
