A little while back I did a post on my favorite free cuttable script fonts. Today I’m bringing you my favorite cuttable premium fonts. Some are script and some are not but these are my favorites. I have scoured a lot of fonts looking for the perfect font cuttable font combos. Sometimes free ones just don’t get the job done correctly. So enjoy the list of my favorite premium cuttable fonts.
Steady – $20
I would describe steady as a thick script font with a retro feel. It has stylistic alternatives that you can use to create awesome decorations for your words. All of the letters connect together wonderfully and this font cuts well.
Kathya Script – $15
You cannot go wrong with this script font. It is so classic and elegant while still being thick enough for cutting with no super sharp points or jagged edges. This font has a MASSIVE ammount of stylistic alternatives so you can create something that is unique and decorative.
Siggy – $49
Not a script font but oh so pretty for Scrapbooking. You can place the letters close together to create a solid word or space them out. This font makes awesome titles and has several styles you can mix and match together to get a unique look.
Swiftel – $17
I like to call this one a bubble font. The letters are super thick, easy to read, easy to cut and you they look puffy like bubles or clouds.
Burton – $15
If you can’t tell yet I love super stylized fonts. You can add so much character with just a few letter, words and swashes. Burton is the perfect example of this. I often use the smooth version in my die cut cards. The style and curvyness reminds me of a Western font. It adds just the right amount of character.
Freestyle – $15
Freestyle is my go-to cuttable script font. For $15 you really can’t go wrong and it comes with an AWESOME bonus font. This font looks amazing when done in vinyl for shirts. I love, love, LOVE this font. It comes with some awesome alternatives as well that really give an awesome look to your words.
Caitiff – $25
Caitiff is a perfect font if you are looking for a handwritten look. It goes wonderfully when paired with a script font to create a very unique handwritten style.
Sweetness – $15
Sweetness is the perfect name for this sweet cuttable script font. Lots of curly alternatives and options for letters. Sweetness Script has it all and will always be on my list of favorite fonts.
Realist – $10
If you buy any font on this list, Realist is the way to go. It’s only $10 and is worth every penny. This font features pretty, thick, curvy letters that make amazing cuts. A must-have in my opinion.
Smoothie Shoppe – $10
Let me tell you what I love about this font. First of all, the price. You can’t go wrong. It’s modern and retro at the same time. The smooth letters make some awesome scrapbooking titles and you can make pretty vinyl letters with it as well. But one of the best parts about this font is the BONUS it comes with. you get a set of 80 ornaments many of which are cuttable. These swashes and signs are perfect for creating your own custom die cuts.
What I look for when buying cuttable fonts
The first thing I look for when searching for cuttable fonts is the thickness. In my experience, thin fonts just don’t cut as well especially if I’m trying to make a smaller cut. Thin fonts can be thickened for cutting but sometimes you loose some of the details of the other letters. This is a case by case basis and no two fonts are exactly the same. For the easiest fonts to cut without doing a lot of extra work, go for thicker rather than thinner.
I also keep an eye out for thin, sharp angles and points. Whenever there are super sharp, thin points the blade can sometimes lift the material creating a bad cut. If the font is full of these, I usually steer clear. Like thin connector lines or letters, these can be thickened but again, you may loose some detail of the other letters.
Are the edges rough or jagged? Rough and jagged edges are common in handwritten fonts. Sometimes these cut fine, especially at larger sizes but when cutting smaller pieces they can cause fonts to look like bad cuts even if they’re not. Thickening the letters usually doesn’t help in this case.
Finally, I check for style! It might sound silly but if I’m planning on buying a font for cutting I want it to be cute and stylish. I need to be able to see myself using it for multiple things. It needs to be unique and look different from every other font in my library.
