If you wanted to take your font beyond the digital mediums, you can actually use your crafting machine and font download to engrave various materials to make some awesome signage. If you’re using a Cricut Machine, you can upload your chosen font into Design Space, tweak the dimensions to suit your chosen piece of materials and switch the line type of your letters from ‘cut’ to ‘engrave’. Follow the on-screen guides for installing the engraving tip and you’re ready to go. The Cricut is a versatile machine and can be used with a number of different materials, including plastic, acrylics, soft metals, leather and wood. A distressed font would look really effective engraved into wood - after the Cricut is finished, you could even give your sign a coat of paint, wait for it to dry, then gently rub it down with sandpaper, so you’ll achieve a distressed distressed effect!
