Hi Everyone,
I am using SCAL 2 with my cricut and am looking for a rounded heirloom-like monogram to cut out of vinyl. If you sew & monogram, you might recognize Mastercircle from Monogram Wizard.... something like that. I have searched everywhere I can think of for true type fonts that might work for this. I see these everywhere so I know there's something out there. I just can't find it. PLEASE, if you have any ideas, let me know.... I wish I had thought to ask here first....

if you can post a pic of what you are looking for someone might have it or know where to find it.

Maybe try google searching 'antique font'. There are pages and pages of fonts which I think you can find something.

Closest thing I know of is Vine Monograms. Not exactly a circle like the one you mention but very pretty and popular

This is the monogram kk font...
the left one is normal and the right is manipulated in Inkscape. Would probably need to add a little weight to have a successful vinyl cut.

That looks pretty close to me! Thanks so much. Where do I get it? I should be able to use it with my Cricut 2 as long as it is a true type font, right?

Should work...I've only used it for design purposes...no cutting.

I have cut the Monogram KK font several times and been successful. Add a little weight, not too much! Be careful when weeding as well, it is very easy to rip the entire monogram. HTH :)
