Just a quick update to let you know that I’ve just had my first font posted to Dafont! Arrow Maker started out with diecutters in mind but I realized it might have broader application as well. Be sure to check out the tips doc and character key that comes in the folder. I’ve got to warn you, this font is just fun to play with.
Download it from Dafont.com here.
For those of you who use Inkscape, Silhouette Studio, SureCutsaLot, Make the Cut or even MSWord, I’ve included many characters made just for text to path so you can make your arrows bend, curve or circle any way you want. Silhouette users can upgrade their text on path skills with this video.
Update: My buddy Rob over at ScrappyDew shows how to use Arrow Crafter with SureCutsALot 4 in this video. Thanks, Rob!

Thanks! this is great
You’re so awesome! Thanks!
Hi, I found this font today and it looks like lots of fun thanks! I was just wondering what font you used to write ‘love’ in the middle of the arrow as that doesn’t seem to be part of this font and I really like how nicely it all flows together. Thanks!
That is Sacramento, a free Google font. Use it at about double the point size of Arrow Maker. I could have made my own to add to the font, but it would have been ugly. LOL

I LOVE this font!! (I love arrows).
Thank you for sharing your really versatile font
Congratulations, Kay!!! I’m going to Dafont.com to download it right now. You have designed amazing fonts and I’m sure this one is going to be a great one, too.
I just downloaded the Arrow Crafter font, key, and tips. Thank you so much!!!! Would you please share the name of the font you used to type Arrow Crafter Character Key on the key page? I love that, too Thank you!!!!!!
Yes, that is Nickainley, also free from Dafont.com
Genius! I can never find the perfect arrow for what i’m trying to do. This is really great. Thanks, Kay!

Thank you so much for sharing! I love this font. I am trying to make the circle arrow…watched the video, but still cannot figure it out. Tips?
I did use the basic steps in the video, but it is probably easier to just place and rotate the end pieces on your path manually. I have included arrow heads and tails without “stubs” in the font for this purpose.
Collette Robbins says
Great! How do I put the shaft on the circular path?
You don’t. You draw a circular path and that is your shaft, then you add a head and tail with no stub so any width or angle of shaft will work.
