Our Fonts

These letters do not have any outlines at all!. Like the name implies, they are are "single line fonts", also called "stick fonts", "single stroke fonts", "sketch pen fonts", "engraving fonts", or "journaling fonts". They are for use in machinery such as engravers, Glowforge, Shaper Origin, AxiDraw, Silhouette, Cricut, and similar machines. We offer ttf, otf, opf formats, Inkscape Hershey Text Extension SVG and Rhinoceros 3D fonts, as well as our new "Machinist" format, which cuts scoring time down drastically.


I used this font with a sketch pen to write the sentiment on the inside of a birthday card and it is lovely. So elegant. SLF has the best fonts for using with pens on my Silhouette Cameo!

Using to cut acrylic in glowforge. Easy to use.

This was the first time I ever bought a font to use with cricut. I was pleased with the entire process. I bought the "Black Tuxedo" font. It showed up in Cricut without any problem.

Easy to use and very crisp and clear to read. I used it with my laser cutter and I'm thrilled with the result. I'll be back for more!

A simple and elegant solution for laser cutting type :-)

I am exceptionally pleased with the Circle Monogram font. It exceeded my expectations, and I know I will get a lot of use out of it.

Love this font. I finally have a beautiful font that I can use on my cards. It was easy to download too.

Font behaves great in FontLab Pad. The drawing on the plotter came out great. You guys did a great job. I'll be back for more. Thank you very much.

I WILL BUY MORE! Built a jewelry box for my grand daughter Rachel and was looking for some embellishments to place on the cover. This will look nice along with other stuff yet to find.

Great single line font for my foil quill. So simple to install and use in my silhouette studio software. Perfect font for kids party items!

I am a graphic designer and own an offset print shop. I truly believe that you have “captured the feel" of the pen on paper.

Used this font for Christmas cards and it was perfect - elegant yet casual at the same time. Happy crafter here. :)

A Note From Our Founder's Desk

Thanks for stopping by! I'm Leslie, the resident font guru around here.

This site is a work of heart that has spanned decades. It was created in 2018, but it all truly began about 25 years prior, when my children were young and I did a lot of scrapbooking. Back then, I learned how to create fonts for use with Pazzles personal cutting machines, in a now-obsolete software program.  These fonts were mainly used for journaling and cardmaking. In total, I created 33 of those fonts.

Our small group was using single line fonts long before anyone else had even heard of them. I credit those ladies, including Christine, the original Pazzles founder, for sparking such a strong curiosity in me about font work.

For all these years, there were virtually no fonts available for use with other craft cutters, engravers, and similar plotter type machines. I was the first to make mass single-line true-type fonts (with no outlines) available.

Later, I developed the FontLab Pad format, which allowed millions of new users to work with single line fonts. The FontLab Pad version is wildly popular among Brother, Silhouette, Solo, Cricut, and Glowforge users. I also developed versions for Rhino3D software and Inkscape as well as for websites such as Whimsical Winds and Coach House Woodworks.

Woodworkers, metal engravers, architects, machinists, engineering students, jewelers, as well as artisans in the scrapbooking, cardmaking, and foil quilling worlds are just a few of the many makers who utilize my work. The next blip on my radar is machine embroidery. I never could have imagined the impact single line fonts would have on industries worldwide, and we are just scratching the surface! I can't even begin to describe the pride I feel when I see my work come to life in all these ways.

I am thrilled to be able to bring these to you now, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I love making them!  Drop me a note sometime and let me know how the single line font industry has influenced your work and life!
