Online font/monogram shop

Threaded View
I have been searching for a Celtic knot font to make
monograms in kilts.  No luck with that so far (anyone have
any links to share?), but I did find this online shop which
has some very nice alphabets and monograms:

I just order three, I'll report back after I stitch out some
samples.

NAYY,

Do you have software that can use computer fonts? If so, there are many
celtic knot fonts available, many of them free. This is the result of a
Google Images search - you can get to them with other searches, too.

G:\newfonts\Foundries\Village\Feijoa\Feijoa-Bold.otf

"Celtic Knot Fonts" generally means either a text font with letters that
include such patterns, or not-text "dingbat" fonts that have borders and
lines and ornaments created as celtic knots.

I bought Embird Font engine add-in, but I'm not thrilled
with it so far.

What I'm looking for is upper case initials with Celtic
knots in the background, or letters incorporating Celtic
knots.  I thought I had located one in a search, someone
posted pictured of a project using a "Martha Pullen(?)"
design, but now I cannot even locate that image, and nothing
on Pullen's site is similar..  :-(

I couldn't make that work.  I searched for
"Feijoa\Feijoa-Bold" and still didn't see what you were
sharing.  What I did see was a nice serif font, but nothing
Celtic about it.  ???

Yes, similar to :
http://www.fontspace.com/renn-crump/celtic-knots

 I will try the Embird Font engine on that one to see what
happens, but I'm not optimistic.  I could just create the
monogram text, scan it and save as a jpeg, then digitize it
myself.  I was hoping someone had already done all that for
an entire alphabet.

I may just give up and use some nice monograms I purchased,

Woo hoo!  Another search just yielded:
http://www.embroideryarts.com/monogramming/lattice02

Exactly what I had in mind.  I was going to buy the 5
individual letters I need for two kilts, but the whole set
was just a few $s more.  Yay!

OOPS! I pasted the wrong link. Won't do any good unless you have either
an embroidery program such as Artista or PEDesign that can use computer
fonts directly, or Viking/Pfaff's font-to-design generator (I forget
whether it's 3DFontDigitizing or 3DQuickFont. Viking has W-a-a-y too
many separate pieces.

My PSW2.0a software for the Singer Quanmtum XL6000 makes a
valeint 9but unsuccssful;) attempt to work on TT fonts.  The
Embird Font Engine is a little better, but not wonderful.

Nope, neither of those.  :-}

Nice site, thanks!  I love many of the Celtic knot designs
there.  I have digitized a few Celtic knots in the past,
they are hard to do because of all the "overs and unders".

However, I found a pre-digitized font package, I'll probably
use that. I also bought three different monogram sets, so I
think I'll make up several virtual images for my son-in-law
and grandson and let them decide which they want in their
kilts.  I'm closing in on finishing the one for my
son-in-law, and my grandson wants to wear his at his college
graduation in May.  I intend to put their monograms or
initials green-on-green in the lining.

Thanks again for your assistance, Herb.
