I am having a terrible time finding a Cricut cart with a nice cursive font. Nothing overly fancy, and nothing that looks like calligraphy. I have those and for the most part, they can be hard to read.

I just want a nice, neat cursive. I love the bold MS script or whatever it is in Word - something like that or like they would have used in school. I want the capital letters to look cursive, not like fancy printed letters.

Any suggestions?

Cursive 101, Calligraphy Collection, Opposites Attract - I think Cursive 101 in particular is jus what it sounds like you're looking for.

I have been using my Opposites Attract a lot lately. it has a nice flow to it and you can shorten up the ends to make it fit any space.


I also like Lyrical Letters which gives you a few different kinds of fonts. One a more upright loopy cursive.

Thank you so much. Cursive 101 sounds really intriguing, as it sounds simple and simple is always easy to read.

I'm going to check all of them out. I have paper lace and didn't even think about it having a font. Would be nice if that would work!

Some of these I've never heard of but will be checking out all of them!

Thanks again for all the suggestions! I LOVE THIS SITE!

Ooh, I forgot Quarter Note has a font other than the letters-on-notes font, thanks for the reminder!

I actually love Paper Lace - its perfect and I already have it - just didn't know it had fonts.

That Quarter Note is really awesome - may have to iinvest in that one!

Husband loves Quarter Note - thinks that one is awesome and likes the musical notes with letters too but the script is perfect.

Going to have to order it.

Thanks again for the recommendations!

Just got Quarter Notes on ebay - checked prices - "buy it nows" started at $31.00.

There was an auction ending in 4 minutes - brand new, not linked at $10.00.

I put $18.00 in and hit the "bid" button at exactly 20 second and got it for $14.00.

I never bid until the last 20 seconds of an auction - why drive up the bid?

HJ, that's awesome! More than not it seems I go to quarter note for my cursive but paper lace is a good one too, and even better because you already own it!! And we know how easy it is to weld all those letters using CCR !!

My go-to cursive font is Cursive 101. The one thing I do, though, is, even though I weld my words on the font, I cut the shadow letters individually. The welded words always come out great, but if you don't get the shadow welded exactly like the main word, they don't always come out the same. By cutting the shadow letters as singles, you can glue them to the back of the welded words and it always looks good. You can't see the seams.

That is a great idea! I never would have thought of doing that!

Now I need to start investigating purchasing some of these other options - the styles are so different and I can definitely use them on different layouts! Just can't afford them all at once!
