Default Font for sign making?

What fonts do you'll use for routing signs free hand. I want to make a stencil on my puter.

Hi Bob - One that I use a lot is called Seegoe Script - it has a nice freehand feel to it.

Bob, I use whatever font I need or want that I can do on my router. I've done calligraphy, red sable, hillbilly, whatever font that fits the type of sign I'm doing, that I know I can cut. (I've also done some fonts where I used my router to cut, but my rotary tool to do some finishing touches. If you look in the Show n' Tell section, you'll see some of my work.

Engravers MT I use MS Word to get the letters the size I need and then apply them to .022 Lexan and cut them out using a scroll saw this way I I can use them over and over. I also do my patterns that way as well.

If you think you can do a thing or think you can't do a thing, you're right.

I like to use Worcester, but I look for any font that has round edges. Check out dafont.com and look at the rounded categories
