    Fonts and Logos

    I came across a few links browsing the vectric forum the other day, that thought were worth sharing. The first, a logo site, which has a bunch of major brand logos, for personal use.

    http://www.brandsoftheworld.com

    The second, I hadn't really thought about, but a font site. The poster suggested searching on the dingbat fonts for different patterns to use for vcarving, take a look and you'll get the idea...

    Some fonts are a bit grainy when blown up, but a lot look pretty good. I'd suggest scanning any you use for viruses when downloading, not that I've found any yet, just a good practice.

    Thanks for posting that, Darren.

    I've been collecting a list of sites that have vector drawings that might be helpful.

    For bitmaps, one search term I use is "coloring page" along with the type of graphic. For instance, when I was trying to find a Native American graphic, one of the search returns was a coloring book site which is where I found what I needed.

    Cool beans thanks for those links Darren and Bill. Darren i checked those font installs and this is so cool i managed to find them in Sure cuts after install. In event you missed it there is a whole set of snoopy and charlie brown fonts and same with star wars and many other movies under the movie theme.

    I can expand them on their own in sure cuts and that means i can cut vinyl for them. Way to go Thank goodness i dont have a cnc because that would be end of working with rest of my tools. LOL

    Imagine now making grandson a toy chest and cutting a lid with say Snoopy or Charlie brown image on it or even engraving it with one of those. The ideas and options are only limited by imagination.

    Thanks for the links guys, its amazing what is out there. I would never get anything done if i dared to go looking.

    Hey how about a set of coasters with something like the peanuts gang on it for xmas. Oh boy i see a cnc machine in my future.
    cheers
