What is a pangram?

Pangram Example
Example pangram from Wikipedia

A pangram, also known as a holoalphabetic sentence, is a sentence where every letter is used at least once.

The most famous is probably “the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog.” My guess is that if you took a touch typing class you’ve typed this sentence at least once. If you look, every letter from a to z is in that sentence, making it a good task for practicing typing.

You also see pangrams used as font examples since they cover every letter, and that’s why we’re talking about pangrams on this blog.

Pangram Examples

I think the quick brown fox pangram is popular because it makes sense. Below are as many examples of pangrams as I’ve been able to find online, and many of them are a little silly.

And I’m intentionally using all lower case, even when characters really should be capitalized.

  • quick fox jumps nightly above wizard
  • the five boxing wizards jump quickly
  • pack my box with five dozen liquor jugs
  • fickle jinx bog dwarves spy math quiz
  • five quacking zephyrs jolt my wax bed
  • the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog
  • two driven jocks help fax my big quiz
  • a quivering texas zombie fought republic linked jewelry
  • grumpy wizards make a toxic brew for the jovial queen
  • glib jocks quiz nymph to vex dwarf
  • woven silk pyjamas exchanged for blue quartz
  • foxy diva jennifer lopez wasn’t baking my quiche
  • how vexingly quick daft zebras jump
  • all questions asked by five watched experts amaze the judge
  • when zombies arrive, quickly fax judge pat
  • jim quickly realized that the beautiful gowns are expensive
  • back in june we delivered oxygen equipment of the same size
  • we promptly judged antique ivory buckles for the next prize
  • the wizard quickly jinxed the gnomes before they vaporized

Perfect Pangrams

A perfect pangram is one that uses every letter exactly once, and there are only a handful known. But they all either use abbreviations or words that are so obscure that it’s difficult for most readers to understand.

Halloween Font Samples

Are you working on invitations for your Halloween party and need the perfect font? Or maybe you’re a teacher decorating your classroom. Take a look at the fonts below and you might just find what you’re looking for.

Quick note, some of these link to other sites and may be affiliate links. That doesn’t change anything for you, but it means we might get a little bit of money if you decide to purchase from that site.

And if this isn’t enough to get you started, you can also see all of the fonts at DailyFont that are tagged with Halloween.

Freaky Halloween

Just had to start with a dingbat font.

Freaky Halloween is made up of all the symbols you might need when putting together your Halloween invitations.

Spooky Magic

This one isn’t really scary, but is in place on this list. It’s a heavy font that looks like it’s drawn with a thick marker.

One Two Trees

Imaging taking a pencil and drawing characters that look like trees and you’ve got the picture of One Two Trees by Cloutier Fontes. It doesn’t look like a font that was specifically designed for Halloween, but certainly has that feel.

Cute Ghost

Like the last one, Cute Ghost isn’t one that you would only use around Halloween, but with the name it does look like that’s why it was made.

Spooky Wookey

Spooky Wookey has more of a fun feel, plus a great name.

It looks like a handwritten or painted font and would look perfect on any Halloween invitation.

Scary Halloween

We couldn’t put together a collection of Halloween fonts without at least one that looks like it’s bleeding. Scary Halloween is that font. The letters look like they have blood dripping off of them.

Spooky Halloween

Spooky Halloween by Misti’s Fonts is a handwritten font with a scary vibe. It looks like it was scrawled in a hurry, maybe by someone writing their last message.

In addition to the normal characters, there are several Halloween glyphs like ghosts and bats to match.

Monster Party

Not sure if Monster in the title is referring to a Halloween monster or the Monster energy drink. Either way, it’s a good looking font that would be at home in late October.

Hallowen Inline

So perfect, it only needs on E.

Hallowen Inline is an open serif font that looks like it was hand drawn.

Mister Pumpkins

That’s Mister Pumpkins to you.

This one is perfect if you don’t want something scary, but are looking for a cheerful Halloween font instead.
