Part 1 in our new series on ARTISTIC DIGITIZER: Fabulous Fonts


Text on computers is usually referred to as being ‘fonts’.  The fonts can be letters, numbers, or images stored in our font folder on our computer.  Artisitc Digitizer can read any font in your computer font folder.  Artistitc Digtizer also comes pre-loaded with a variety of font options available to us to use.  We will be offering a series of working with fonts in various ways using our Artistic Digitizer software. This is part 1 in the series.

Let’s start exploring the fonts options by creating a monogram with the Artistitc Digitizer software.  There are 25 different monogram layouts built right into the program.  All we need to do is type in the fonts to use and determine if we want to add a border to the design.

  1. Open the program to create a new design.  Begin by clicking on the text tool on the left side of the screen.text tool
  2. A pop out menu will appear.  Select the monogram option by clicking on it.  A new selection box will appear on the screen.  This is where we will select the size of the font, the type of the font, the template to use, and add a frame if we want that.  I like to use the template number 6 for multiple letters.  This will take my text and intertwine the elements for a very elegant style of font.  Once you select all your options from the drop down menu, just click on the OK at the bottom of the box.

The text elements are intertwined and the border I chose also mimics that intertwine element.  This is automatically generated by the program for us once we click OK.

This design can now be edited further by clicking on the selection tool first slection tooland  then by clicking on each element to select it. Using the stitch and color tools you can change the elements to form a design that appeals to you.

Practice playing with the monogram tools to see how creative you can be with the designs.

    thank you. Still on the fence about purchasing this software. Does this software give the option for a knockdown stitch?

      Hi Ceil,

      Yes, we do have knockdown in Artistic Digitizer. We can choose from a number of underlay options with a variety of densities.
