Remember when you were a kid in computer class and the only font that you wanted to use on your school project was Comic Sans? It was sooooo cool. Remember seeing all those weird fonts at the bottom of the font listing called "Webdings" on Microsoft Word? I always thought those Webding things were kinda weird. I always thought that I would never use them.
Let's fast forward about 15 years.
Comic Sans is the most horrible font in the world. I don't like it. It's overused and looks like something your teacher used on handouts when you were in elementary school. You know the handouts I'm talking about. The ones that were given to you for homework that taught you your multiplication tables and spelling words. Your teacher would hand it back with a "GOOD JOB" sticker (I was always hoping for the scratch and sniff stickers. Those were awesome.) and her perfect cursive handwriting in red ink.
Word to the wise - JUST SAY NO TO COMIC SANS. There are a TON of beautiful fonts out there for you to use for your DIY wedding invites and office memos. I have a whole board of fonts called "WHAT THE FONT??!!" on my Pinterest page. See below or click the link.
Little did I know in my computer class that Webdings are generically called Dingbats. These little images are a blessing when using your Silhouette cameo. You don't have to find one single image, trace it, modify it, blah blah blah. You just type a letter and Mickey Mouse will show up or a gun or Hello Kitty or smiley faces or scripty, flourishy things. The list is endless as long as you can find the font for the image that you are looking for. There are fonts for just dinosaur images, helicopter images, flower images. They are awesome when cutting vinyl decals. These Dingbats are my new found love.
These state decals that I made are from a Dingbat font called Stateface. It's pretty nifty and all the states are available.
The little gun is also a Dingbat font called 2nd Amendment.
These decals can be purchased in my online store.
I hope you enjoy using Dingbats. They are really fun and really easy to use!
Enjoy your Easter weekend!
