How to thicken fonts in silhouette V4.1
Posted on 1st November 2017
1- Open Silhouette studio.
2- Type your text.
3- With the text highlighted, click on the text style icon and select the text you would like to thicken.
I have used the font Marthas vintage from fontbundles.net.
4- Select the offset tool.
5- Click the offset icon. You will see a boarder/offset appear around your text.
6- You can adjust the size of the offset via the distance slider. Once you are happy with the offset click Apply.
7- As you can see the offset creates the text to appear wider.
8- You can also use the offset tool to make really this swirly fonts thicker. This is a fantastic help when you want to cut them from vinyl and they are too thin to cut.
Select the font. I am using Lovely Melissa from fontbundles.net.
9- Select the offset icon and click on it.
10- As you can see, by using the offset on the thinner fonts, it makes it that little bit thicker to cut.
