There are so many monogram fonts out there that are perfect for every occasion. I’ve created a list of some of the most popular ones.
There are many types of monograms and different monogram font types. I’ve only included some of the most popular ones.
There is some light editing that you will need to do within Cricut Design Space. If you want a step by step tutorial with screenshots of how to make different types of monograms, check out my tutorial How to Make a Monogram in Cricut Design Space.
Monogram Font Types
Not all monogram fonts are well suited for all Cricut projects. Some have really thin strokes which are not for paper cutting. Stencil based projects might also require some additional editing of the font letters. (I’ve written a detailed tutorial on how to make stencils in Cricut Design Space here.)
Circle font types – great for cutouts, print and cut and stencils
Circle font types are letters that have been morphed into a circle. The most common circle font type has 3 letters with the last name letter in the middle.
Circle font types have many variations; some are more oval shaped, some how negative space, others have different letter shapes.
Here’s a few of my favorite free circle fonts:
Script font type – great for print and cut
Script type font has all the curly flourishes at the end of each stroke. They can be used along or in sets of 3 or 4 letters. They can also be interlocking, separate or kissing.
Here’s a few of my favorite free script fonts:
Shaped Monograms – Best for cutouts, stencils and print and cut
These are similar to the circle monograms but the letters are morphed into different shapes.
Here are a few of my favorite free shapes monograms:
Monogramus – This is a 4 letter monogram font
Block Monograms – Best for cutouts, stencils and print and cut
Block Monograms are exactly what they sound like, letters arranged into a rectangular or square shape.
Any Serif or San-serif font works for Block Monograms.
Here are a few of my favorite fonts for Block Monograms
Single Monograms – Best for print and cut
Single monograms are single letter monograms with more decorative graphics surrounding the letter. This is by far the largest category type for monograms.
While there are many single monogram graphics out there, there are limited ones that have been turned into fonts.
However, there are tons of graphic design site and home decor sites that have a monogram maker tool.
Here are a few resources online for free monograms:
A few of these do not produce vectorize images (or SVG files). You will have to vectorize these images to use in Cricut Design Space. Here is my tutorial on How to turn any image into a cut files.
DIY Monogram with Frames
In many ways, you can turn any font into a decorative font by adding your own graphics or illustrations around a base letter.
I’ve created a set of rustic floral wreaths that work great as monogram frames:
These are free and available in my resource library.
