    I make Greek letter shirts for college kids and I would love to be able to have consistant size/shaped letters…no more cutting by hand :)

    • Paula says

      Have you been able to make letters for shirts with this font? I just bought it with the intention of making shirts and have found that the letters are too thin. I haven’t figured out how to fatten them up. Any advice?

      • says

        It is probably all up to the fonts that you have and use. Some fonts are skinnier and others are chunkier. You could also find some tutorials that could help you make your skinny ones a little bigger. I don’t have this machine so I can’t tell you for sure. Sorry.

  60. Debbie Matthews says
