5 Great Fonts for Holiday Photo Slideshows

If you’re like me, then you’re getting your holiday slideshows ready to share with friends and family in the next few weeks. I like to use this opportunity to showcase my favorite family and personal highlights of the year. Typically, this involves recapping the major events like graduations, weddings, reunions, and trips, but I like to also throw in some slices of everyday life here and there to balance it all out.

We’ve talked before about the value of well-appointed text and title treatments in your slideshows, but it’s especially important when you’re debuting your show for the entire family! Below, I’ve shared several of my favorite holiday fonts for this application — perfect for creating an intro or caption slide in your
ProShow slideshows.

Vladimir Script
A nice script font is versatile and classy. Use Vladimir Script or a similar script font for a classic-looking title slide for your holiday slideshow.


St. Nicholas
Use this font to tell your story. It looks like it was pulled right from the pages of a Christmas book! Great for end of year recap slideshows!


This font is great for captioning photos with kids. It uses both capital and lowercase letters throughout words for a fun look. Use this for short descriptions or for adding names to a portrait photo.


Budmo Jiggler
Don’t let the silly name throw you off, this font is modern and contemporary. The dots are reminiscent of Christmas lights and it makes a great statement for a title slide.


Santa’s Sleigh
A great whimsical font for holiday and Christmas slideshows. Use it to tag photos, create title slides and more.


Hope you enjoyed some of my favorite font choices. What are some of your favorite fonts for holiday slideshows?
