Quality Grunge Fonts

If you caught my post from Friday, we talked about David Carson and his amazing graphic design work and accomplishments. His work is known the world over, and he found a lot of success from being the father of grunge typography. In celebration of his bio from Friday, I put together a list of 10 great grunge fonts you can download and use in your projects. If you want to replicate the grunge style, these fonts will help you along. Let’s take a look at 10 examples of great grunge fonts.

Armalite Rifle

Grunge fonts - armalite

This grunge font ha a military stencil style that would look great on anything related to the military, the army, or a soldier.

Capture It

Grunge fonts - capture-it

Capture it is a grunge font with a stencil style that is popular for the grunge style. Typically, when you spray a stencil, it doesn’t come out perfect, so the grunge look goes great with it.


Grunge fonts - destroy

Destroy lives up to its name, with its destroyed and decayed style.

Dirty Ego


Dirty ego is another stencil style grunge font. The difference it that the weathering is taken a little bit further than the ones shown previously.



Gesso is on the brink of being illegible. You can still make out the letters, but they are really tattered and decayed.



Harting is a grunge font that looks like a typewriter was used on linen. The dots are a different kind of grunge, but it looks great.



Shortcut is geometric, but it is balanced with the grunge style.



Tiza is fairly easy to read, but still has enough of the grunge style applied to it to have the destroyed look.



Umbrage looks like paint that has weather away in the rain. I could see this applied to an old subway wall, and it would fit right in.



1942 is a typewriter font with a grunge style. In places, it has a double print of the letters,  adding to the grunge effect.


Which one of these grunge fonts are your favorite? There are a lot of different styles to choose from. Each one will fit a different type of project. I’d love to hear what you think. Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
