First... the alphabet is just plain perfect for my A2 sized cards, even though it was really meant for the new sized cards. It is so compact, lengthwise, that I can get my own sentiment in many times. Then, it has both upper and lower case, so I didn't have to buy both... or just get the one. I has the numbers separately so I did have to buy those later. As for the actual font, it is a useable one for many sentiments. I know I'll use it for my kids scrapbooking too.
