3. Classic Macintosh Chicago Font (ChiKareGo)
Another classic Macintosh Style font is the Chicago font, which is similar to the geneva font but it is more truer to the 68k Macintosh bit style. There are to versions of this font which you can use for your vaporwave text which was renamed " ChiKareGo" and " ChiKareGo2″. it was made by the same blog which you can find here. This is also a good vaporwave font to use in your artwork you can mix the Geneva font for a description of your artwork and use the ChiKareGo for the buttons and titles for your vaporwave design.
4. VCR OSD Mono
Now lets take a break from computer fonts and lets get hooked up into VCRs. This font is an aesthetic vaporwave text to use in your art work or and Outrun look. This is the vaporwave test that you want if you like the aesthetic VCR video look. Now you will need to be skilled in graphic design to have a CRT look on the image and have a outer glow effect on the font. But this is the type of font you want to make as a base.

5. Lazer 84
Lazer 84 is more attuned if you want a synthwave/outrun aesthetic for your design work. I get that this isnt necessarily a vaporwave text font but I think it should be included here in case you want to branch out in your artistic journey. You can download it for free here.
6. Alien Encounters
This is the same font used by the vaporwave label Dream Catalog in there poster style art piece above. Visually, their catalog is bathed in a Blue and Purple wash typically associated with 80's Sci-Fi. In this spirit their logo, which utilises the aptly named 'Alien Encounters' typeface, invokes the forward leaning, horizontally sliced fonts of Blade Runner and Tron. This is a perfect vaporwave text font to use if you want have an old movie poster look. Again you can download it for free here.
Streamster is a more luxury type of font if you want your vaporwave text to have an 80's Patrick Pateman skyrise apartment style for your vaporwave artwork. This is a minimalist font that is perfect for album covers and jazzy type or mallsoft aesthetics. You can download it here.
8. ITC Fenice Regular Oblique
Now if you are a fan of 90s sitcoms like Seinfeld you'll love this font titled "ITC Fenice Regular Oblique". This is a good vaporwave text to use if you want to go for a 90s kids style artwork. I feel this type of vaporwave text would also be goo in apparel or sticker designs and maybe cassettes. You can download this font for free here.
