Excited to create your first project on your vinyl cutter? Fonts are a big part of most vinyl cutting projects, so it’s important to choose the right one.
When choosing fonts for your vinyl cutting projects, your choice won’t just depend on aesthetics. You’ll need to make sure your font can easily be cut by your vinyl cutter and won’t be difficult to weed.
Some fonts may be too thin for the machine to cut properly, while others may be too textured and can lead to tearing during the weeding process. Thin connectors and strokes are also difficult to cut and weed. So in short, your ideal font will be on the thicker side, with smooth lines and connectors and free from texture.
Taking into consideration the above factors, you should also choose fonts that are not only pretty but also readable. And if you’re designing fonts in pairs, make sure they complement each other, or else you’ll end up with a project that looks outlandish or just plain unfashionable.
If you’re struggling to find the perfect font for your vinyl cutting project, don’t worry – there are plenty of resources out there to help you out. One great place to start is the free font library on Creative Fabrica’s website. With thousands of free fonts to choose from, you’re sure to find something that fits your project perfectly.
