The Best Fonts to Use with Vinyl and Printables
By now you all should know that I LOVE crafts that involve vinyl. Well since I make a lot of them, I am always looking for fun fonts that work really well with vinyl. It’s sometimes tricky to find some because a font might be super cute but it’s either too skinny to cut or it doesn’t flow well. Well I’m happy to say that I have found an awesome font bundle that is perfect for vinyl. There are a bunch of them and they are so much fun! There are script ones, bold ones, cutesy ones and fancy ones. Plus there are even ones that layer (those are great for using with printables!). I made four different things with this fun font bundle to show you how good they look with all different types of vinyl!
Here are a quick video to show you the process of making everything 🙂
This is how I made the fun glittery shirt for my daughter
I first started with a plain shirt and then I used a rainbow glitter heat transfer vinyl. I cut it out with my Silhouette (make sure you mirror the image and have the shiny side down when you cut it). The fonts that I used from the bundle are Gorgeous and Hershel Sans. The script is the Gorgeous font and the Hershal Sans in the print.
I weeded the heat transfer vinyl. To make that easier, I heated up a block of wood that has multi use paper wrapped around it and put the heat transfer vinyl on it before weeding it.
I then put the block of wood behind the shirt, it’s just gives you a nice solid surface to work on.
I then ironed on the design.
I let it cool a little before I peeled off the plastic. Once the plastic was off, I flipped over the shirt and ironed the back side of it. Then I flipped it back over and put a multi use paper onto the design and ironed it again. You can’t put the iron directly onto the heat transfer vinyl.
And that’s it! I love the design of this shirt and the fonts are great!! Seriously this is one of the best script fonts I have seen for vinyl, it just flows so well!
Now for the warning shirt. Before we get to the tutorial, I have to explain why I made this shirt. So I am in my mid 30s and my hormones are so out of whack. There are days that I am a MONSTER to my family and so I wanted a shirt that I could wear that would give them a warning. I will tell them that when I wear this shirt, I mean it, LOL. Hopefully I won’t have to wear it too much, but when I do I hope that my family understands that it’s just one of THOSE days :).
I did this shirt a little differently, I used paint instead of heat transfer vinyl. For the design, I used the Hershel Sans font. I really like this font, it’s bold but also fun! It’s a good one that works for both girl or boys.
The first thing I did was cut the design out with stencil vinyl and then I removed the words instead of the excess vinyl.
Using grid transfer tape, I put the design onto the shirt.
Using black fabric paint and a circle stencil brush, I painted onto the stencil vinyl. Make sure that you have something inside of the shirt because the paint will go through to the back. I put a piece of plywood inside the shirt.
Once the paint is completely dry, remove the vinyl.
The vinyl leaves nice crisp lines!
And that’s it for this shirt! I love how it turned out and how fun the font is.
Now for the sign. I just used regular indoor adhesive vinyl for the sign. For the font I used the Intellecta Typewriter font. This one is so fun and classic, I plan on making myself a couple shirts using this font!
I cut the design out of the vinyl and then weeded the vinyl. I used a green, gray and yellow for this. I put it onto a plain pine 1×8 board that I painted white with yellow edges.
Using the grid transfer tape, I put the vinyl onto the board.
Then I added the lemons.
And that’s it!! I love how it turned out and the simplicity of the Intellecta Typewriter font.
Lastly these fonts in the font bundle are perfect to make printables with. I made this one real quick using 3 of the fonts: Hondurhas, Blingtastic Solid and Hershal Sans. This printable is perfect to put onto wood or just put into a frame, either way it’s super easy!
