Welcome to Lettering Delights. Lettering Delights started off many years ago, selling creative fonts at a time when there were little choices for fonts on the market. It has grown since then, adding many different types of artistic and creative digital product for crafters, artists, desktop publishers, teachers, and anyone who likes to embellish photos, projects, and documents.
An alphabet is a full-color set of letters and is made up of individual image files. These image files can be imported, viewed, arranged, printed, and changed in a graphics editing software such as PhotoShop or word processing programs such as Word. You can download the .zip files of the alphabets which when unzipped will give you a folder with all of the individual graphics (see what that looks like here) or you can download individual words or sentences you make on the site with our online tool. Learn how to use it here. We recommend using this feature as it is much easier to type words than to rearrange letters on a blank canvas.
Cut Sets are vector images that are meant to be used with cutting machines like a Zing, Silhouette, Pazzles or more. There are many machines on the market. Cut It files are files that look like graphics but they actually can be read as cutting paths by the cutting machines. With a cutting machine and cut it files you will eliminate your need to use scissors for crafting projects ever again! These files LOOK like graphics, but they are actually very different. They file is made up of multiple layers.
The difference between fonts and alphabets can be explained by describing the difference in the type of each file. Fonts (.ttf or .otf) are the same type of font file that already exists on your computer such as Times New Roman, Arial, etc. These fonts will be available for use within any system program that supports them, such as Microsoft Word, desktop publishing programs, and others.
An alphabet is in full-color and is made up of individual image files (.png). These image files can be imported, viewed, printed, and changed in a graphics editing software such as PhotoShop. You can download the .zip files of the alphabets which when unzipped will give you a folder with all of the individual graphics.
Once upon a time LetteringDelights use a program called "The Creative Companion" and the file format we used with it was sold as .exe files.;
Now we package our files in .zip files, as is the standard for most downloadable product on the web. A .zip file is a commonly used file format that compresses files to make them easier to download. There are many programs available online that allow you to unzip/extract these files, some are trial based or require a purchase and others are free. Most every device comes with a free way to access your files that are "zipped". In Windows, right mouse click over the .zip file and you should have options to "extract" the file. On a Mac, doubleclick over the .zip file.Take care where you are extracting the file. As you "unzip" a file, you will be given an option of where you want to store it. We suggest you keep all your LD product in one location on your computer. If you save your .zip files to that location, when you unzip the files, the products will organize themselves by product name.
