Elegant Fonts for Great Ampersand Designs

Great ampersand fonts can be pretty tough to find, what’s a ampersand? Well it’s the “and” sign? ( & ), and it seems everyone loves using this little fellow in all sorts of cool ampersand designs, however I keep seeing the same ampersand font face, if you are a designer you’re probably familiar with the accused, but I digress, since it’s an great elegant font and works especially well for ampersand fonts – I’m guilty of adding it & similar fonts to the list.

Most ampersand fonts listed are licensed, meaning you may have to purchase them, some are free fonts, however, most of the great fonts are also packed with certain applications, so check if you have the font on your windows pc or mac before downloading.

Most of these elegant font’s are not web safe, you should either use an image, or a font replacement technique, like Cufon, Typekit, or see if it’s on Google’s Font Directory, Smashing Magazine also has a great list.

Most fonts are available in .otf and .ttf for use with the CSS3 @font-face property.

I think there’s something wrong with the Elephant link. Unless that “&” under ‘Elephant’ is not it.

Hi Amy, thanks for pointing that out, I got the font as part of a software package, I have updated the elephant font link to the correct URL, it’s a paid font, but available for ‘free’ in 13 software packages, most noticeably, Office 2007 ;)

@Dale, I would have to look at your signage and logo to see what works with it, but I’d imagine any of the font’s above would work nicely if your going for a more elegant / classy look.

I prefer a simplified ampersand. Something like this new font. I think it still looks elegant but modern at the same time.

Which typefaces have beautiful ampersands?…

Baskerville Italic, yes! (I’m actually thinking of getting it as a tattoo… typography nerd I know). If you can’t use Baskerville for some reason but really want that ampersand, Adobe Caslon’s is very similar. As for Sans Serifs, our logo uses Walk…

Thank you for this!
I don’t ever think about what a font’s ampersand looks like, and I was looking for a classy one for my brother’s wedding invite.
Lucky me, I have several of these fonts already. Now to decide!

Hi Dale,

I have been collecting wooden printing blocks of letters and symbols for some time and am now starting to research the fonts before mounting the blocks. I have a host of curious ampersands. While wandering through the Web, I spied your column and enjoyed it, while admiring lavishly the glorious ampersand examples you provided.

Do you think you could recommend a good reference book or source for me to start identifying these little printing blocks? Thanks.

of course like your web site but you have to take a look at the spelling on quite
a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling
problems and I find it very bothersome to inform the reality
nevertheless I’ll certainly come again again.

First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question that I’d like
to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how
you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
I’ve had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
I truly do take pleasure in writing however
it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
Appreciate it!
