Welcome to the Router Forums!!
If you're getting into sign making on a serious basis (like doing it as a business), you might want to invest in something like the Milescraft 3DPantograph (Milescraft - Universal Power Tool Attachments & Accessories - Routers - 3D Pantograph). Using this one could create one's own letter templates and then use those templates to make signs.
Just an idea.
Thanks ,I forgot ALL about the FREE patterns (templates)

The only commercial sign templates I've seen have been simple block letters, due to the limitation of the template needing to be a single, continuous structure. For a script-style "font", I think you'll have to go free-hand, using printed letters glued to the surface as guides.
One of the problems with free-handing is having sufficient surface for the router base to rest upon. An over-sized base, or skis, can help in that regard.
