I just released the Classic Wreath Monograms dingbat font, and I’m really excited about it because 1) it’s my very first natively designed dingbat font, and 2) it’s a super versatile font that will help you easily add elegant monograms to everything from art prints to pillows to vinyl craft projects.
Dingbat fonts are awesome because they can be used just as you would use a regular font but, instead of alpabetic and numeric characters, they contain cool stuff like symbols, illlustrations and, in this case, wreath monograms.
In this font, the lowercase letters are mapped to the leaf outline versions of the wreaths, and the uppercase letters are mapped to the filled leaf versions of the wreaths. If you’re cutting these monograms from vinyl using a die cutting machine (I use a Silhouette Cameo), I recommend a minimum font size of 150pts for the leaf outline wreaths and a minimum font size of 72pts for the filled leaf wreaths. If you’re cutting from paper, be sure to go with larger minium sizes than this. And, if you’re printing the monograms rather than cutting them, you have more flexibility with the minimum point size.
In the video below, I’ll show you how well the Classic Wreath Monograms font performs when cut from two different brands of vinyl : Oracal 651, Metallic Gold and Cricut Holographic Opal vinyls. We’ll make a super quick and easy monogram notebook, too!
