This item for sale is a digital file. You must have an embroidery machine and the capability to transfer designs from your computer to your machine to use the files. Designs are available for instant download; we do not ship designs on CD. All available sizes and machine formats for this item will be available for download in 9 different zips, sorted by machine format. ART format is NOT available for instant download.
Please note this is not applique nor is it a traditional satin or fill stitch font. The light and airy "sketch" fill pattern allows for a quick stitch out. The space between each line of stitching varies and the two colors combine to create the ombre effect. The letters have a bean stitch outline in a third color.
The ombre effect works best if the first and second colors are different, but side by side on the color wheel. The ombre effect will be stronger if the first color is lighter than the second; the ombre effect will be more subtle if the two colors are similar in tint or shade. Please refer to sample images in our listing for multiple examples.
We do NOT recommend resizing this font in software.
You will receive all Aa-Zz letters, numbers 0-9 and punctuation (79 files) in thirteen sizes. The font size is based on the capital B, and all letters/numbers are scaled accordingly; several of the capital letters extend below the baseline making their overall design height larger than the stated size (see image for details).
All files in the 1", 1.5", 2", 2.5" and 3" sizes fit in a 4x4 hoop except for the 3" lowercase t.
Several letters of the 3.5" size do not fit in a 4x4 hoop.
The capitals/numbers of the 4" size do not fit in a 4x4 hoop; a larger hoop is needed for 4" size and above.

You MUST have embroidery editing software to merge the letters together to create names/words/monograms. If you do not currently have software, Embrilliance
offers a free program that uses our BX files to convert our fonts to keyboard lettering. Find out more on our blog
