Stencil Version of SLF Architect

Our first stencil offering, this font is a derivative of SLF Architect  For more information, see this blog post: Anatomy of a Single Line Stencil Font Design

Ideal for use in lasering metal, when you need to create lettering that won't fall through.  KNK, architectural drafts, engineering models, etc are target uses for this font. 

Uses include engraving, foil quill, embossing, etching, cardmaking, wood routers, and so much more. Try our fonts with Glowforge machines.  

You will receive TTF (True Type Font) and OPF (Open Path Format) versions.  This download also has our new format for FontLab Pad!

TRUE TYPE 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 Cricut Design Space, Starcraft CREATE, 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!  Try it with new foil quill techniques to broaden your options using your own special style and custom text. 

FONTLAB PAD FORMAT:


FontLab Pad is a simple, free app in which you type out true single line text. Export as an SVG file. Import into your chosen software. 


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 Starcraft CREATE and Sure Cuts a Lot (versions 5 and up).  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.  

Special Cricut Design Space Instructions: If you have an issue with some of the font disappearing when you click "Make It", here are the steps to take:  right-click the text box and choose "ungroup" and then "attach" before sending it to the machine.
