Cutting True Type Fonts with your Cricut and Make the Cut!

One of the great things about Make the Cut! is the ability to cut any True Type font you have on your computer. In addition to the fonts already on your computer, there are lots of websites where you can download free True Type fonts to use in your Cricut designs. Dingbat fonts, those fun little picture fonts, work the exact same way.

Here are a few links to free font sites to get you started:
Once you download a font, you can either install it on your computer by placing it in your Fonts folder, or you can create a separate folder just for your downloaded fonts.  Keep in mind that the more fonts you install on your computer, the more you will slow your computer down as it must load all those fonts into memory each time you use a program like Make the Cut! which accesses the fonts.  If you simply keep your downloaded fonts in a separate folder, you can still access them from Make the Cut!, but you don't have to worry about slowing your computer down.

After you've found a few fun fonts to play with, it's time to start up Make the Cut! and see what you can create!  I'll be posting a video tutorial in the next couple days showing you what you can do with True Type Fonts and Make the Cut! so stay tuned.
