Copperplate was originally designed in 1901. It is a reflection of the Gothic style in that time era. It is an all caps font which makes it a good option for headlines. It feels sturdy yet elegant.

Since the font is so unique, it was difficult to find something similar.

So after digging throughout all the fonts on Google, I believe that I was able to find two decent looking alternatives.

Quick disclaimer, no free font will ever replace the original. So I only recommend these fonts if your project is on a tight budget.

The best Google Font alternatives for Copperplate are:

  • Balthazar
  • Alegreya SC

Both of these fonts are pretty similar to Copperplate and would work as a decent alternative.

So let's cover some of their differences and similarities.

The main feature they have in common is the wicked out tips of each letter. If this is a style that you are going for then Balthazar would be a good example.

There are minor differences within each one of the letters, but the main one is the width.
