The headline is the first thing that we see in every article. It’s seen on newspapers, magazines and even in marketing materials such as flyers and posters. The headline is very important because it needs to catch the attention of your audience and give them a preview of what to expect. Headlines aren’t necessarily titles, but they give out the necessary information to lure the audience to actually read on.

To be able to do this, we need to make sure that the font style is as catchy as the words in the headline. With a good headline and headline font, it will be hard to go wrong. We gathered 35 FREE Big, Bold, and Beautiful Headline Fonts that you can add to your growing collection. Most of these fonts are new to our senses but not exactly new in the type world. Most of these are old, underrated headline fonts that can still make a big impact in design today.
