five fancy fonts to improve your designs
Hey! We've got a secret to share with you...
Have you ever gazed in awe at an incredible text design by a crafter, and wondered how they got all those fancy hearts to sit perfectly in the right place?



Did you know that sometimes, your fonts contain far more than meets the eye?
Chances are, you had no idea... And we're about to blow your mind.


Five Fancy Fonts (to enhance your designs)


The following 5 fonts are loaded with hundreds of amazing 'PUA Encoded' Glyphs designed to help you massively improve your design ability with very little effort (once you know how to).

1. Lovely Melissa

Lovely Melissa is an absolutely stunning font created by Font Droe that is a favourite with crafters and designers. It contains an astonishing 964 glyphs that are fully PUA encoded and accessible to anyone who installs it in software like Silhouette Studio (you can find our Tutorials here).

You can find Lovely Melissa available for purchase here at Fontbundles.net where it is currently reduced in price!


In the image above you can see that we have used special glyphs for the uppercase 'L' and the lowecase 'y' to make the design much more interesting in 10 seconds!


2. Smileheart

Smileheart is a beautiful PUA Encoded calligraphic script font by Byuly Ayika which contains extra glyphs allowing you to enhance your text designs simply (find our Tutorials here). We have used special glyphs for the lowercase 'i', lowercase 'h' and lowercase 't' to make it look like much more of a fancy signature.


Smileheart is part of The Majestic Fonts Bundle.

You can also purchase Smileheart separately here https://fontbundles.net/byuly-ayika/919-smileheart


PUA encoded font may sounds like fancy technical jargon, but it really just means that we've made sure that every glyph that a font contains can be accessed in programs like Silhouette Studio by anyone who wants to use them - fonts that are not PUA encoded may contain glyphs that only people using software such as Photoshop ($250+/year) can access.


3. Natasya

SweetBeat is a font created by Shirongampus that contains a number of PUA encoded glyphs to help you improve your designs. In our design we used encoded glyphs to replace the lowercase 's', lowercase 'e', 't' and 'b'. There were actually two different 't's used in the design - you can see different directions on the top of the fancy t's.

How to use Fancy Fonts

 

We have opened up the special secret of PUA encoded fonts to you, we can't leave you empty handed without any idea of how to access and use them...

 

Luckily (because we're awesome), we have a huge and awesome tutorial section where you can find out exactly to access and use the glyphs in a wide arrange of software such as Silhouette Studio on both Mac and PC...


On our site we clearly mark each font which has been made PUA accessible with a big blue tick, and whilst this does not neccessarily mean that they will all contain hundreds of fancy swirls and swashes, it does mean that the entirety of the fonts glyphs have been made accessible using our Tutorials, in all your favourite software!


Enjoy your fancy fonts!
