What the font looks like in black.

The Scratch Font is the font used in the Scratch Logo and other related branding. It can be downloaded here.

The font was included with versions of Scratch prior to Scratch 1.3. It is also available in Scratch 2.0. It was not included in the list of fonts in Scratch 3.0, likely because of the legal issues with the font between Scratch and the original makers of the font, but projects containing it are still displayed correctly.[1] It might be removed from Scratch completely in the future,[2] but it can still be used in 3.0 projects by backpacking a costume that already contains it, and typing in the same text box.[citation needed]

This font was not created by the Scratch Team;[3] it was created by a non-Scratch user, Jakob Fischer (known as pizzadude on the website the font was from)[4], called "Black boys on mopeds".

Use in Web Pages

This font can be used in a web page with the font ScratchFont, if ScratchFont is installed. Otherwise, it shows up in the default font.

Note Note: The Scratch font must be installed to see the above text properly. Otherwise, it will show up in one's browser's default font.
