Fabric Font Download 110 Characters Letters Numbers Typing .otf Digital Files

Fabric Font Download 110 characters typeface letters numbers keyboard type for typing using an.otf, or open type face format, for displays, Cricut clipart, crafts, for writing cards, invitations, banners, party supplies, or add to art!

I designed, created, a typing font, what I call the "Fabric Font", that you can type with!!!! Once you buy it, download the zip file by right clicking on the file with the .otf ending, and it installs on all of your programs or apps that allow you to change or customize your font style!

The "Fabric Font" is great for quilters, sewists, seamstresses, fabric shops, quilting circles, crafters, using on graphics, business cards, greeting cards, tags, the:

sewing and craft industry

home ec / home economics classes / teachers / instructors

sewing classes

sewing / quilting / knitting

quilt shops

fabric stores

I'm excited! This is a graphic design, for use in special occasions, like birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, for using on cards, invites, party supplies, and all sorts of crafts! Just a different, detailed font that you can use! The folds and drapes are very close to fabric draping and folding, to form letters, numbers, and all sorts of characters, all 94 characters on the keyboard, plus some special glyphs, such as copyright, the English pound sterling, the upside down question and exclamation marks, the cent, Yen, Euro, Pi, Section, Pilcrow or Paragraph. Great for graphic designs, too!

And I bundled the download fabric font, that gets put in all of your typing tool font styles, from Microsoft Windows Word, Wordpad, Notepad, to Photoshop and Illustrator. For Photoshop, you can type the 94 keyboard characters, but you'd have to pull from the svg files for the other 16 characters not on the keyboard. For Illustrator, pull the 16 special characters from your Glyph tool.

I started this font when I designed my own logo for FabricatedFrames.com, and then added more letters & numbers for making calendars and card over the years, and recently, people bought printables from me for cards, papercraft crafts, more calendars were bought, so I need to make it easier on myself, in creating this font for my own work! And I figured that you'd want to type with it, too!

_____________

A little backstory on my fabric font:

I started my home based business, Fabricated Frames, back in early 2000. Not having much money, with being the creative person that I am, I decided to make my own business logo, and thought, "Since I make fabric photo frames (now washable), my logo should reflect what I make!" So, I set out to make line art, fabric shaped letters, as if lengths of fabric were draped and folded into forming letters.

Fast forward to the early to mid 2010s, and I wanted to make a calendar, with my fabric font, so I then created the rest of the alphabet, all the letters, upper and lower case, plus numbers, for the days, weekdays, months, and year. I sold many on printable calendar sheets and also on print on demand kitchen calendar tea towels. Then I started selling them on greeting card and other papercraft, like tag caption sheets to place on cards and paper card stock crafts. Well, I really ramped up selling downloads for cards and other papercraft, using the fabric font in 2021. I was getting 10s of purchases on any given day, on various digital download selling sites, such as TeachersPayTeachers.com & other digital printable sites.

That's when I decided that I should really turn this fabric font into an actual typing font ...but how? Ok, first I finished creating the rest of the characters on the keyboard, some currency characters, and other characters, about 110 characters. Then I had to get them ready for professional conversion. I made 110 jpgs, converted to .psd, converted to .png, and then opened each character in Illustrator, and made 110 .svg files - that's the file type that allows for the line weights in the character to smooth out, and vector, or enlarge or shrink evenly, for patterns and graphic art. Then, I had to find a font editor, to change / convert the characters from .svg to .otf and I found Font Lab. All in all, it took 3-4 months of off and on time creating and converting from jpg to svg to otf format, all the characters.

To be honest, this took almost half my life to create, because the fabric font started out as my business logo, then I painstakingly created the rest of the characters, using essences of the previous letters, to keep them looking like they belong in the same font family. Painstaking, in that in making the calendars, and even tag captions and card printables, I would have to pull each letter or number file and manually paste them in place, resizing manually, it would take 1/2 hour to an hour to make one word, 2-3 hours to make a card printable, if not longer!

When I finally got the font in .otf format, it was such a relief! It takes me a fraction of the time to create cards, word art, tags, you name it! All I have to do is type, and the words, the letters and number just flow! And to change the color or size is so easy, as opposed to how, in the past, I would have to change each character's size manually!

Fonts, for typing purposes, come in 2 file types:

1) .ttf (for simple fonts) BUT because mine was coming back as being "too complicated" lol, because of all the lines inside the characters made all these folds and drapes LOL, the font editor created them as .otf format file!

2) .otf (the "Fabric Font" is in .otf, due to its complexity in design lol)

If you want something different for typing to make your cards, invites, papercraft, crafts, decorative art, banners, party supplies, buy this font to download and use ...and type with!

1 zipped folder of the .otf font files - has .otf files in zipped folder - the font file, when unzipped, with 110 characters, to type with, which you can upload into your graphic art programs / apps as a typing tool for Photoshop & Illustrator, also for uploading into typing programs / apps including Microsoft Word, Excel, WordPad, Notepad

To use:

The files will download to your "downloads" folder, look in your download folder, for the file then "right click" on the file, then find "install" in the dropdown menu (my chrome browser shows a green shield next to it), and click on "install". This will download the .otf fonts into all of your device's typing tool programs, including:

  • Adobe Photoshop

  • and pretty much any program on your device that types letters, numbers, and characters from the keyboard
