TrueType Font (TTF) Format
These do not have outlines but DO go over the lines two times. Here's how they work: In cutting software packages (such as Pazzles InVue, Cricut Design Space, Make The Cut, Inkscape, and Silhouette Studio) and engraving software (such as Adobe Premier Pro, Illustrator, Vision Pro, Corel Draw, and similar), your pen tool will draw a single line and then go over the line in the exact same place again. This second pass makes the text look more defined with beautiful, crisp results. Experiment with different types of pens for thinner or bolder lines - gel pens, ballpoints, white, gold or silver pens.... all are unique and gorgeous!
This font is for engraving and cutter programs. Because of its hairline nature, this font is not designed to be used in word processing programs and may not be visible in them. This font will not print successfully.
Open Path Format (OPF)
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" or "journaling fonts". These are in .opf (open path font) format. Here's how they work: these are only for the cutting software packages Pazzles InVue, Make The Cut, and Sure Cuts a Lot. Some engraving and CAD CAM programs will also accept OPF fonts. Your pen, foil quill, embossing, engraving, etching or similar tool will draw a single line only. No outlines, no going over the lines a 2nd time.
