So, I've been liking the style of things like classical music. I do notice how the font is inky and kind of smeary. Is there somthing like this on musescore that will let me use this font? A plugin or anything. Thank you anyways!

That looks like a photocopy of a photocopy of a photocopy of....

To get that look try this: Print out a nice crisp looking score from Musescore and then photocopy it. Then photocopy the photocopy. If you want it more smeary try wetting it before photocopying it again. Then, when you have made a really smeary copy, you can turn it over and write your shopping list on it.

After thinking about it for a while, I've come to suspect that silasurban means that he likes how old, printed works look "inky" and "smeary", rather than that MuseScore's printing looks that way.

silasurban, I assure you that if printers of the day COULD get their print jobs to be neat and NOT smeary, they would have MUCH preferred that. But there's not much way to avoid that with a old-fashioned Gutenberg-style movable-type printing press.

I would guess that MuseScore's font was chosen deliberately to get away from that look. If you can find a font that looks like what you've described, it would probably work in MuseScore. But I would be surprised if anyone here would help you deliberately make your printing low quality and hard-to-read.
