Block letters are common in the world of customized font styles and are recognized by their standalone letters. Their opposite would be the cursive font style, where letters are joined to each other within a word by loops and swirls. Cursive writing is faster when writing longhand, but in the digital space it is the block letters that have the advantage. They are often easier on the eye and are designed to be functional and utilitarian above all else. This does not mean they have to be unimaginative.
Here is a collection of block letter font styles you can download as TTF and OTF files. Once imported into your computer, you can begin typing in them right away, for any graphic project you have going.
Writing in block letters in everyday penmanship sometimes goes under the term “printing” rather than writing. This is stylistically appropriate, since block letter styles have actually developed from the mechanics of the earliest printing press models, where each letter in the alphabet would be individually carved onto a wooden block, covered in ink, and then stamped onto a piece of paper. If you’ve ever used a typewriter, you will understand how this works better than most people.
Naturally, this is a very efficient way to produce a lot of print traditionally. These restraints are eliminated digitally, but block fonts persist for their aesthetic qualities. Sometimes no other font will do.
