A Note From Our Founder's Desk

Welcome to Single Line Fonts!

Meet Leslie: Your Font Guru and Creative Guide

Hello and welcome! I'm Leslie, the resident font guru here at Single Line Fonts. This site is a labor of love, built over decades of passion for crafting and font design. Although the site was officially launched in 2018, the journey began about 25 years ago when my children were young and I immersed myself in scrapbooking.

Back in the early days, I started creating fonts for Pazzles personal cutting machines using a now-obsolete software program. These early fonts were primarily for journaling and cardmaking, and I ended up creating 33 unique fonts. Our small group was pioneering the use of single line fonts long before they became popular. I owe much of my inspiration to those wonderful ladies, including Christine, the original founder of Pazzles, who fueled my curiosity about font design.

For many years, there were virtually no single line fonts available for use with other craft cutters, engravers, and plotter-type machines. I was the first to make single line true-type fonts (with no outlines) widely available. Later, I developed the FontLab Pad format, which has opened up the world of single line fonts to millions of users. This version is especially popular among users of Brother, Silhouette, Solo, Cricut, and Glowforge machines.

Expanding the Horizons of Single Line Fonts

My journey didn't stop there. I went on to create versions for Rhino3D software and Inkscape, as well as for websites like Whimsical Winds and Coach House Woodworks. Today, my fonts are used by a diverse group of professionals and hobbyists alike, including woodworkers, metal engravers, architects, machinists, engineering students, jewelers, and artisans in the scrapbooking, cardmaking, and foil quilling communities.

The next exciting frontier for single line fonts is machine embroidery, and I am eager to explore the possibilities in this field. It's incredible to see the impact that single line fonts have had across various industries worldwide, and I am proud to be at the forefront of this innovation.

Join the Single Line Font Community

I am delighted to share my fonts with you and hope they bring as much joy to your projects as they have to mine. Your creativity and feedback fuel my passion, so please feel free to drop me a note and share how single line fonts have influenced your work and life.

Thank you for being a part of this journey. Let's create something amazing together!

Warm regards,

Leslie
