Machine Embroidery Monogram Fonts

Having an embroidery machine is “the bee’s knees” as my grandma would say.  And I would have to agree with her.

There are so many exciting things that can be done with an embroidery machine that can’t be done with any other machine.

One of those things is using machine embroidery fonts to monogram and personalize many items.

What is the best machine embroidery font to use?

There are so many machine embroidery monogram fonts to choose from, but the best font for beginners is Arial black.  It is considered ideal for embroidery digitizing projects like t-shirts, jackets, backpacks, sweatshirts, and so much more.

Some of the most widely used bundled Arial fonts, including Bold Italic, Arial Regular, Italic and Bold are very easy to work with.

What can I make with machine embroidery monograms?.

The possibilities are endless when monogramming items with an embroidery machine.

Some of the items included on this page are:
