23 November 2021

Drawing with your Cricut Machine can help create beautiful tags, envelopes and stickers. Many makers want their font to be single-lined rather than the outline of the font but are not sure how to change the writing style to achieve this look. If you want to create single-lined font to draw with, we’ve come up with a step-by-step guide to using writing in Cricut Design Space to help!

How To Change Your Font For Writing

Step 1

Start a new project in Cricut Design Space and select the text option. Type using the keyboard to insert your text.

Step 2

Select the text. In the top edit bar change the ‘Style’ drop-down to ‘Writing’. This changes the text to single-lined font!

To do this, head to the fonts in the top edit bar. Select ‘Filter’ then tick ‘Writing.’ This will then show all fonts with the writing style capability. This is great for writing tags, envelopes, labels and more!
