Pre-filled fonts for gel pens

April 30, 2010 at 10:58 pm 3 comments

I had a prior post where I gave a rather contorted procedure for filling in the fonts that you draw with Cricut markers, gel pens, etc. Today I had a better idea. Find fonts that already have a “fill” that works with the Cricut. So I tested a bunch of fonts with my gel pens and when one seemed promising, I reduced the size until the fill looked solid. Some look really nice with the crosshatch showing, as well. All of these are freebies from either or

Keep in mind that these take a long time to draw, so plan ahead. If you want to use markers instead of gel pens, there are many more options, or you can use the fonts above at even at larger sizes. Also see this previous post about single line fonts.

    You can also use engraving fonts (or single line fonts) as well. I have a few that I have tried and they work great. Let me know if you want the names and I’ll get them to you.

    I saw you on ScappyDew tonight…great job! I come here often but never picked up on the font list and found some nice single line fonts for gel pens.
    I also keep returning to your video’s and most still work on my ecal/eclips.

    Thanks again, and again!
