Artistamp Medium

Rubber Stamp


I can't use these fonts in the Silhouette because it will cut out all of the idiosyncrasies and it would look really bad as well as fall apart.

So, I need something that looks as close to one of those as possible that is solid so that it will only cut out the outline.

Thank you so much for your help!

Ld typeset? It looks like it still has some irregular lines, but they are all external.

Thanks, bechla. Looking into it.

IPeaOften, I could try. The one I was looking to use is pretty disjointed. Not sure how easy it would be to fill in. I'll try the other one tomorrow.

I've used these kinda fonts on my silhouette... un group them, and or un compound path them, right mouse click. then select the outline shape of each letter and group delete the junk, that's how I've taken out all of the divots. i've done this before with candy shoppe .. its a little time consuming.

I do the same as outsidechic, though it is time consuming. No ideas, sorry, but have to say thanks - artistamp is a lovely font. I went straight to downloading it!

Ah! Thanks for the tips! I only need 2 letters and the ampersand sign. That one is the worst. I'll give it a try this evening. Thanks again!

I'm sure there is a way to just cut the outermost line of the letter in silhouette software. I know you could always print it in some software that saves as a jpg and then auto trace the outside marging.
