help! Wall letters...

Postby booboo » Fri May 04, 2007 3:21 pm

So I am looking for an online site where I can buy wall letters. I want to get a cute font, but I am worried about choosing a font without seeing a preview of how the name would look first. I found this site:

ABC123Scrapbooking

Do you know of any other sites that let you preview the name?? I am hoping to get both names (Emma and Addison) in the same font, but Im having trouble finding a font that looks good with BOTH names :roll:

:help:

I'm not sure if there is one near you, but there are arts & crafts stores that specialize in woodwork projects. They let you choose from different font styles & sizes and then they carve the letters in the wood of your choice (pine, oak, cherry, mahogany, etc). These same shops also make one of a kind building blocks (instead of letter or numbers you can get phrases and things like 1) baby's full name on one block, 2) each of baby's names - first, middle & last on 3 separate blocks, 3) baby's birthdate & time of birth on a block, 4) weight & length of baby, 5) "My big sister/brother rocks", 7) I love my mommy/daddy, 8) Mommy/Daddy loves me 9) etc...just depends on what you want on the blocks.

As most of the fonts are "regular" type fonts, I would use word to print out the letters (enlarge the font)--say 1 letter per page or 2 per page if done on landscape. Then you can tape the letters to the wall, step back, and see if you like the font.
