Formal script fonts are sophisticated and connective, while the elegance of the text makes it perfect for greeting cards and invitations. The text looks best in large point font, and can be a bit overwhelming in smaller sizes. This design style is preferable to use in headlines or short blips of text, as it can get a bit tiring to read after a while. Using formal script-styled characters for lengthy text can be overwhelming for the reader, and can end up being rather illegible. In general, formal script typefaces are some of the most tidy and free flowing typefaces available that still manage to maintain an element of sophistication.
