Free banner font

May 17, 2011 at 6:55 am 19 comments

I’ve been playing around at Fontstruct some more and made a font for cutting alphabet banner flags in one piece. Seems that banners are quite trendy so I hope you will enjoy using this font with your diecutter. It is made to work at small sizes for your card and layout projects. The banner shown above was cut at 1 inch height. Click here to download.

Use uppercase to access the banner characters (red in the sample photograph), lowercase for plain. The backslash character (\)is a blank triangle while the vertical line character (|) is a shadow version of the blank triangle (blue in the sample photograph).

    Thanks for the font.
    A silly question but where is the vertical line?

    • 5. Kay  |  May 17, 2011 at 11:09 am

      Not a silly question at all, Norah. It is the shift character to the blackslash. That key is on the far right hand side of the keyboard between the delete and return keys on a Mac or the backspace and enter keys on a PC.

    Thank you so much. This is really great to have! I recently had a terrible time trying to put the tiny centers of letters into place. This is so much nicer!

    Hi there!

    I’ve just discovered your blog after searching for inkscape tutorials for the purpose of making my own cut files… I have a silhouette Cameo – I want to up the ante and start to challenge myself rather than just cut out shapes that others have made (purchased from Silhouette Store, or free downloads)…

    I think I may just have stumbled on something that is going to be very useful – already I have a feeling I’m going to learn a lot from browsing your blog – so in advance, I want to thank you for the time you have put into generously sharing your knowledge and skills in using the software to enhance our (my) experience of using our electronic die cutting machines.

    Also, thank you very much for the banner font – right on trend and so useful.

    Love the card by the way – clean and simple look, which is what I love.
