Introducing Dear Agatha, a single-line and hairline font duo! You get a fun cursive font with tons of alternates and extras, and an all-caps sans-serif for easy pairing.
Single-line and hairline fonts aren’t your ordinary fonts; they can’t be used for word processing, printing, or cutting. They’re meant for a sketch pen, foil quill, engraving tool, infusible ink pen, or any other stylus or nib that draws letters with a single line instead of an outline. Both fonts come in both a single-line version and a hairline version; different software programs will use different formats. Not sure which format you need? You can download and install both!
Dear Agatha is a connecting script font, with over 200 alternates, ligatures, and extras for variety! It also includes the full Basic Latin and Latin-1 character sets, so you have plenty of punctuation and a number of accented letters for language support. Dear Agatha Sans is a perfectly paired sans-serif, also with the full Basic Latin and Latin-1 sets!
Even though these are TTF files, all of the alternates are OpenType coded and PUA-encoded, for easy access in a ton of programs. You can even use these fonts in vector programs like Adobe Illustrator, CorelDRAW, Affinity Designer, Inkscape, and more! Just apply a stroke and not a fill, and you can make the font as heavy or light as you like, then expand the text to outlines!
I’ve included a couple of handy PDF documents as well. One has the alternates, ligatures, and extras right in it, so you can use it intsead of a secondary program like Font Book or Character Map to copy and paste. The other is a guide to single-line and hairline fonts (they’re two different things), which can help you use them in a variety of programs, and help you figure out which format will work best for you.
These fonts have been tested in Cricut Design Space, Silhouette Studio Designer Edition, Adobe Illustrator CC, Inkscape, CorelDRAW, Affinity Designer, and Rhinoceros 6.
Please ensure you’re familiar with single-line and hairline fonts before purchasing. And be sure to download the two PDF files; one is a guide to help with which font to select, and the other puts all of the 200+ alternates, ligatures, and extras at your fingertips!
Note: these fonts will look very strange in the font previewer. That’s totally OK! It’s meant to work with regular outline fonts, and doesn’t quite know what to make of the hairline and single-line formats in these files.
