The popularity of wavy stacked text designs has given me an excuse to use the fattest, funkiest, grooviest fonts I can find to make delightful retro t-shirts, totes, and pillows. They’re a perfect match for puff vinyl, too!

This list of my favorite bold, chunky, far-out fonts is a companion to my wavy stacked text tutorial. They look cool on their own, but these fonts were chosen specifically because they look great warped! I’ve created a wavy stacked design for each font to show you their potential.

All of these fonts are free for personal use, and most are free for commercial use as well (check the documentation with each font file). Every font has a complete alphabet, but numbers and characters vary.

This set of fonts was created by the same designer behind Single Line Studio, which is featured in our collection of free writing fonts. This designer clearly knows what crafters want, and has pivoted from creating single line writing fonts to a whole collection of thick retro fonts perfect for warped designs.

Spicy Rice (by Brian Bonislawsky, Astigmatic One Eye Typographic Institute)

This font is included in Kerri’s article about cutting tiny letters with a Cricut – it’s thick enough to work at 0.25″ or less line height. But it also looks great as a big wavy Wonka-style typeface, and it’s free for commercial use.
