  • Fonts?

    Wondering what fonts work best for scrolling. I'm assuming that by using computer fonts they can be scaled to fit the project, but are there any that are "naturals" for scrolling?

    . . . because each piece will be someone's heirloom someday.

    I use a link called I look for fonts with open bowls, where the round part connects to the vertical posts.
    You can also search for stencil fonts. Most stencil fonts require two holes drilled per letter with a hole in the middle, like "o" and "a"
    I also like a font that I have on a brass template from Plaid products (scrapbooking)
    They call the font JAZZ, but it isnt the same as the JAZZ fonts I have found online. The beauty of it is the fact you only have to drill one hole per letter.

    I also like to look for symbol fonts and windings. you can get some great project ideas from these fonts.

      Greetings from central Indiana. Most of the good stuff I know about scrolling, I learned here. The rest was from fixing mistakes or doing stuff again because I didn't pay attention to what I read here.
      So, ask your questions and post your photos.
