Default A monogram font for signs and boxes

I recently discovered a font that has great potential for sign and box makers, especially for wedding couples and house-warming gifts. The $19 set of nine fonts is the MFC Elmstead Collection from Creative Market (https://creativemarket.com/MonogramF...ead-Collection). The monogram-style font has elegant capitals along with a split capital that lets you add text in a separate line running through the large letter. The font for the smaller text is included in the collection. I think it is a handy font to have in your design toolbox and plan on using it in future projects. Here are some samples.

Nice find, Oliver. I've done something like that in CorelDraw but this would be sooooooo much easier.

Those are nice. Really like the third one. It inspired me. No CNC, but did come up with something I'll use in the future. I love this forum.

Hmmmm, I don't think that's the ideal results. You need to play more! How will you ever get that shop insulated if you don't win?

Well, apparently then I won't ever be able to knock it.

I'm doing better than you, won $3 on a $10 ticket.
