MyCutSearch Anniversary ~ Searching for Fonts with Shadows


Grab a cup of coffee . . . I am going to share some tips on features and searches you might not even know that you can do with MyCutSearch.

If you have ever been working on a project where you KNEW you wanted to use two colors on your lettering to give it that layered effect, like this.


To do this, you would need to use a font that includes a shadow cut feature.  Well, if you are like me, before MyCutSearch came along you would flip through all of your font handbooks to find the PERFECT font for your project, only to be disappointed when you saw that there was no shadow cut feature for that font.  Well not anymore!  What if you could JUST preview the fonts that HAVE a shadow cut?  Let me show you how you can do this.

Let’s use the image in the layout above for an example of how to search for images with shadow cuts.

First, go to MyCutSearch, and on the left hand side you will see Advanced MyCutSearch.  It is the third item down on the list.  Click on that.


That will take you to a screen that looks like this.



Make sure the keywords box is un-checked

Check the font box and check the character-number-symbol box

In the search bar, type in 

s shadow

The image below shows the boxes you should have checked, and along with the search parameter information.

SampleSearch FontShadow

Click on search

Now you will see only the pages with a letter S that also has a shadow cut

Remember, you can always click on any of these images to get a larger preview.

And if that is still not big enough for you, you can click on the single preview image to enlarge that one more time.

I hope that this helped you to learn something new about MyCutSearch, and how you can use it for your papercrafting needs.
