Bringing you the must-have fonts for crafters!
As an SVG designer, I get messages from crafters asking me about the fonts I use in my designs. Most of my customers use vinyl cutting machines like Cricut and Silhouette. They are looking for cut friendly fonts to use in DIY projects to implement new ideas or personalize an existing design.
I am always excited to share details about the fonts I use because super talented font designers make our designing and crafting dreams come true. Font designers put in a LOT of hard work making these fonts for us, and the more people know, the better!
Whether you plan to design SVGs for personal DIY projects or selling, I highly recommend checking out the fonts in this post. Crafters need fonts that are smooth and don’t take forever to cut, and these fonts meet those requirements, hands down.
Not only are all these fonts cute, but I selected these fonts based on the designs crafters love in my Etsy shop. Each font in this list has its own unique personality and can be used for a wide range of ideas and projects. I included a few examples that I hope will give you a better idea.
I have MANY fonts that are my absolute favorites! But I am starting with a list of 10 fonts for crafters and plan to make more posts like these.
