Have you ever uploaded a free or paid for cursive font and have it not work for you? Just the other day I uploaded a free front from Dafont called mf I Love Glitter. It is a really fun font but when I uploaded it into the Cricut Design Space there were spaces between each letter, it happens every once in a while that the cursive fonts don’t line up properly.
I have the way to fix this in Cricut Design Space. It is really easy once you know what to do.
First write out your saying in Design Space. Then pick the font you want to use, as I said before I’m using the font mf I Love Glitter from Dafont. I like to make my image as large as I can while I’m working on it.
This is how my font comes out without fixing it.
Now select all the words you have written and click on edit.
Now you are going to click on letter spacing and lower it. If you look closely you can see that I started with my letter spacing at 6.53 and I end in the next photo with the letter spacing at -2.47.
As you can see the letters are much closer together however they aren’t quite close enough. In some fonts this is enough to make them close enough however it isn’t for this font. If your font is close enough and you don’t need to work on it anymore skip to the end of the tutorial.
For this font and other you will need to continue to work on them. After lowering the letter spacing you will click on layers then ungrouping. *Make sure you have the entire image clicked.*
As you can see this breaks up the word into individual letters. You could do this in the beginning but I find it easier to line them up when they are closer together.
Now click on the individual letter or image and line them up the best you can. *It is a good idea to put your words on a line within design space so you can make sure the letters are straight. *
When I shortened the letter spacing it made my numbers too close together, which is easy to fix when you ungroup everything.
Now the last step, welding it all together. Make sure you don’t skip this step if your letters are not welded together your Cricut will cut them each individually and it will be a mess.
To weld them all together select all of it together and click on layers. Then click weld.
As you can see all the letters are now joined and will cut in one image instead of each letter individually.
After you have welded your image together you can now make your image any size you would like for your project. I hope this tutorial will help some of you use the different fonts you have downloaded.
