Goodies Font Brush is classy script a beautiful with hand drawn to give a great contrast between thick and thin curves. Goodies font is perfect for: Logos, branding, apparel, scrapbooking, wedding invitations, quotes, labels & more.
Another must for crafters to have in their font collection is a clean brush font. This also needs to welded once you have the final words set so the machines don't cut each letter individually out.
This font would make beautiful labels for your pantry canisters! If you're a seller you could offer the vinyl labels all ready to be attached at craft fairs or on Etsy. They also make great wedding gifts! Buy the set of canisters they registered for and have them pre-labeled for the new couple.

This will cut beautifully with it's clean lines no matter what material you're using.
Origami is a unique font that still has smooth lines that are easy to cut out.
This would be perfect for layering materials with too! Simply cut one word out of two colors and weed the letter edges from one and the fills from the other.

Ranch Salad is a western inspired font. What makes this perfect to use with your Cricut or Silhouette machines is the nice thick letters with clean edges for cutting.
You won't have to worry about accidentally tearing these letters while weeding and transferring them.
7. Shoelace Scrawl
Shoelace Scrawl is a casual handwriting font. It has lots of fun extras, smooth lines, and a set of playful doodles.
I love when fonts like this come with the alternative extras to really make it look like a real handwritten project. This is another font that needs to be welded once you have the final project.
8. Laundry Night
LD Laundry Night is a brilliant font that is also PUA Encoded meaning that it is fully accessible to everyone and all glyphs are available in Character Map on Windows and Fontbook on Mac.
PUA encoded fonts are the best to use with your Cricut and Silhouette machines too, that way you don't miss out on an awesome feature because you don't have graphic design software.
