How to use the Offset Tool

Posted on 27th October 2017



Sometimes a font you want to use for a project is too thin to cut, this is a great tool to thicken it.

1-Open Silhouette Studio



2-Type out a word using the text tool.



3- Add some spacing between each character so there is room for the offset lines



4- Click on the offset tool, then hit offset, input the distance, hit apply.



5- Delete the original word.  You'll want to group it back together since they are now separate shapes to the software.



Now you have a word thick enough for your next project!

*I used the font Promise from the Christmas Craft Bundle
