Articles explaining the basics of LD and the products.


OTF (Open Type Font) are cross-platform (Mac and PC) fonts. They typically have a smaller file size which allows for a quicker download. They support expanded characters which allows for alternate characters and ligatures.

TTF (True Type Font) are similar to OTF fonts but they require separate files for each instance of the font. For example, a separate .ttf file is needed for bold, italics, or bold italics.

For most intent and purposes, it will make little difference to use one or the other file type when downloading fonts from LD.

Cut sets are very versatile. Here is an easy bullet point list of the uses and benefits:

  • Cut sets come with a variety of file types to cover the file needs for many different types of machines. We include .ai, .dxf, .eps, .gsd, .pdf, and .svg.
  • Our early "Cut sets" were called .svg files. These files are being replaced on LD. They only include .svg format

The online alphabet tool has replaced the "Try Me Now" tool from the old LetteringDelights site.  It allows you to easily type with full-colored alphabets and save the image as one word or phrase to insert into a document or project. To access the online alphabet tool do the following:

  1. Sign into your LD account.
  2. Go to Downloads
  3. If you have a lot of product, you will probably want to filter your downloads by file type.
  4. Choose the alphabet you would like to type with
  5. Click on the "Use Alphabet" button
  6. Type in the Text Input Field.  Most of our alphabets have two cases but often rather than having a true "lower case" the second case will be a different version of an uppercase.  This allows you to have variance in color and style in words where there are repetitive letters like "banana".
  7. Choose the resolution you want.  The bigger the resoultion, the bigger the file is.  If you are using the product online the smaller sizes will suffice.
  8. Click "Download" when you are done and navigate to where you want to save the file.
