As a bona fide font addict, with a personal collection that runs in the several thousands, I often struggle to find the perfect font for a project. Add to that the limitations of the specific project, and it can be really hard to find typefaces to use. I own and use both a Silhouette Cameo cutter and a Glowforge laser cutter, but both of these machines have similar limitations when it comes to cutting out words in beautiful script typefaces.
Whether you're cutting vinyl with a blade or wood with a laser, these fonts that I have collected are tried and true for cutting. They tend to be bolder, and the connections between letters are stronger, helping keep the letters together. No matter your project though, don't forget to weld your letters!
I ran all test cuts on my Glowforge, since that tends to be harder with the really thin stuff than the Silhouette… these tests were all cut from 1/8″ Baltic Birch plywood (which I buy in bulk here)
I've broken this collection up into two main sections, based on the smallest I was able to cut the letters out. There are total of four sections in this post, two sets for each size. You'll find download links for each font under the images.
Small script fonts
I've test cut these ones all the way down to about one inch tall! Many of them are still incredibly fragile, but I was able to pick the pieces up and move them around.
Allessa Script | Wonderland | Backhill | Valentine | Millenial Solstice | Isabella Script | Sweet Home Savannah | Belinda Script | October Moon | Pathout | Wandertucker
Amastery | Olive | Berttina | Aleysia | Mellanie | Andalusia | Bunch of Blossoms | Naishila Dancing | Charming Strangulation | Sunset Hill | Dulcelin | King Basil
Large script fonts
These are all fonts that failed at the one inch test, but worked beautifully when I enlarged them to about two inches.
Carolina | Sweetness | Montagne | Brightside | Jestho Fischer | Beachwood | Honey Butter | Just Write | Moonlight on the Beach
Barbarella | Hurringtown | Raustila | Wallaby | Supercup | Strawberry Blossom | Better Phoenix | Notera | Carolina Mountains | Featherly Hand

Can you please let me know what you mean with “don’t forget to weld your letters” I’m new to laser cutting and do not know what is that and how it’s done
Welding your letters is when they are all connected together and the font flows as one word.
Can you give a detailed answer on how you do that?
How do you upload these fonts to be used on the glow forge?
Yes, I would like to know this as well! I spend way too much time trying to find a decent font in the Glowforge cloud.

Thank you for the links to all of these great fonts!
Very interesting page how do i get the fonts
I worship you for posting these. The amount of money and time I’ve spent on searching for fonts that end up not cutting correctly 9.5/10 was about to be the death of me. Lol I appreciate your kind work!!
