Text styles that fall into the script classification are those that resemble hand lettering with a brush, calligraphy pen or pencil. They can be additionally separated into the exceptionally exquisite or formal style that looks like traditional calligraphy and the more rough and ready casual style.
There are two types of script font one is Formal scripts and the other is Casual scripts. Formal Scripts are based upon the letterforms of seventeenth and eighteenth century writing-masters like George Bickham, George Shelley and George Snell. On the other hand Casual scripts appear in the early twentieth century and with the advent of photocomposition in the early-1950s their number rapidly increased. They were popularly used in advertising in Europe and North America into the 1970s.
At present, the use of script fonts has increased in many parts. In my opinion, a bold script is very suitable for branding a company. You can use this also for invitation cards, headings, letterheads and logos. With larger, bolder script fonts, there are more options for flexible colour uses and designs, including outline text, and colour gradients.
