There's really something to be said for a casual hand lettered sans-serif. Handmade irregularities lend sans-serif typefaces a relaxed air that offsets any geometric proportions they may embrace.
Of course, hand lettered fonts are not the best option for some brands (you're never going to catch a hospital using one of the specimens below). But for artisan-style creatives or rustic restaurants a hand lettered vibe can really hit the spot.
Without further ado, here are some of our favorite casual hand lettered sans-serifs that call out for you to let your hair down and stay awhile.
3. Boho Sans
Boho Sans comes from another of Latinotype's handmade families. Like Showcase, the Boho family includes fun slab serifs as well as scripts. This font's tall, thin proportions offer a fun alternative to some of the heavier geometric sans serifs on our go-to list!
4. Harman Retro
You might be seeing a pattern here. Many of these great casual hand lettered sans-serifs come from font families that offer paired scripts, serifs, or slab serifs – well, Harman is no exception! Harman Retro has the proportional balance of Showcase with playful and endearing touches that shows it doesn't take itself too seriously.
The great swashes on Vigneta's caps set it apart from other sans-serifs on this list. I've been hunting for a project to use this on for some time now!

6. Lulo One
Though it might not look too handmade at first glance, Lulo One actually has very fine textured edges that soften up its strong geometric proportions. This font hails from the super-stackable Lulo 3D family, but it's also available in a super clean version as well.
