Best Google Fonts for Websites… Or Love Letters

Posted on in Blog

Note: Our designers originally wrote this blog with Valentine’s Day in mind, suggesting good fonts for love letters or digital marketing materials for the holiday. However, we like these romantic fonts any time of the year!

For many people Valentine’s Day is one of the most important days of the year. A day for gratuitous romantic gestures, chocolate gorging and self-care.

Oneupweb designers like to gush over a personal love: web fonts. These romantic Google fonts are sure to impress.

Romantic Google Fonts

Ubuntu

Tall letters with a slight curve make for a friendly font. This font is so strictly sans-serif it doesn’t even bother with extra lines, instead choosing to bend the letter instead of beginning a new stroke.

Open Sans

The internet seems to love Open Sans, and it’s a love that’s well earned. This font has all the seriousness of a good sans-serif, with the gentle slopes of a serif (check out the t and the f). It’s definitely one of the best Google fonts.

Cabin

If you love Ubuntu for its curves, then maybe you’ll love Cabin for its solidity. Round o’s and vertical j’s make this font appealing. It’s not the most flowery of romantic fonts, but we like it.

Josefin Slab

A dozen varieties and beautiful slabs aren’t the only thing that make this a great font for Valentine’s Day or any day of the year. There’s also that tilted e and 90-degree t to love. This font also comes with a sans variation, but how can you deny something as elegant as a slab serif?

Arvo

Well known and loved across the internet, this romantic font hasn’t worn out its welcome yet. Relatively large and curvy, this font is another personal favorite of Oneupweb designers.

Droid Serif

The Droid family consists of some beautiful fonts, but Droid Serif takes the cake. Tall and just-square-enough, this font has the benefit of making a great header or great body copy. As a font for a love letter, it says, “I’m serious about this.”

Lora

Lora is a beautiful font and great for body copy. It’s wide, slightly wavy and friendly. The wavy feeling gives it the perfect amount of whimsy. If it looks familiar, that’s because you see it on our website. You know it’s one of the best Google fonts for websites when a website design and development company is using it!

Merriweather

Merriweather is another that’s commonly mentioned in Google web font discussions, and for good reason. This is a beautiful, thin serif that needs little explanation.
