Cricut Design Space – Picking a Font

I have been helping some people in the Facebook Groups I am in so that they can learn some of the tips and tricks for their Cricut.

I see lots of people looking for fonts that have shadow effect on it, so that you can layer two different colors on your projects.  To do this, you need a cutting font not a writing font.  You also need your cutting font to be one that has multiple layers available on it.

In this video I am going to show you how to look through your fonts and use the filters to see just the multi layer fonts.  This will help so that you don’t spend a lot of time picking a font for a project just to find out that it will not do what you want it to do because it is a writing font or a single layer font.

If you want to use fonts other than those that you can purchase from Cricut, there are several sites where you can download fonts to use in Design Space.  Most of these will probably be a single layer cutting font.  My favorite resource is  Once you download and install a font from this site, the next time you open up Design Space you will see it and you can use it in your projects.

If you see a project online and are wondering what font they used, try using What the Font to determine the font used.
