My Top Ten Free Fonts with the best Ampersands


An ampersand is the figure that is used to represent the word ‘and’, it is widely recognised by this mark; &. The symbol originates from the blending of the letter E and T, from the Latin word ‘et’. As a Graphic Designer I am constantly using the ampersand in my designs. The aesthetic curves and swirls of the ampersand character is just really beautiful to me and it is extensively growing in popularity in the home decor market as well.

Here’s a list of my top ten FREE to download fonts that have the best ampersands. Put them on; prints, cushions, posters, or anything else you can think of. The links to download the fonts are at the bottom of this post.

    Hi! And thank you for sharing these fonts. But my question is: what’s the font you used to write fonts names?
    Thanks!

    This is a PERFECT find! Have been looking around for an affordable wooden ampersand to use in our upcoming wedding pictures and haven’t found anything I really like…then it dawned on me to print out a huge ampersand instead and glue it to some foam board or something similar. Thanks!!
