Which cartridge offers the best font? I have Plantin ABC Schoolbook and use it the most but I would like to purchase a font cartridge that is a little more fancy. Sometimes cutting small fonts are so thin they tear when retrieving them from the mat. I would like to know the font cartridge which is most popular. Thanks

A hidden gem is the font on the Robotz cartridge. I like it because it is chunky which makes it easier to glue down. But it's not fancy, more of a fun kid's type font.

If you like fonts with shadows, I would look at the type candy font cartridge. I think it has 3 different fonts with shadows. If you don't care about shadows, I would take a look at the Lyrical Letters cartridge.

My absolute favorite font is Hello Kitty. I have to force myself to use something else! It's hard to get though. I also use the cake carts, Winter Woodland and Base Camp a lot.

I love the font on Kate's ABC! I have recently gotten the Letter Envy Font & it is growing on me! The fonts in the CCR that are free are also good! Another of my favoites is the Lite Cartridge Feelin Groovy. Go to the Cricut website & pull up the font carts to see the different styles.

Another vote for Lyrical Letters. That is my go-to cartridge for fonts. THere are many options on that cartridge.

The font on Quarter Note is beautiful. Your question is a tough one, because there are so many great fonts, and it depends on what you are using it for. Good luck! GG

I have several font cartridges, I love Songbird for a fancy font (I used it for the banner I made for my son's US wedding, it also went to Japan to be used for the Japenese wedding), I usually find myself going back to using Street Signs for most projects due to the fact that it has puncuntion marks like a period, comma, quotes, colon and semi colon, most fonts don't have any puncuntion marks.
