Thank you so much, Kay! I never knew you could do all that. The things you have taught me.
Thanks Kay for this informative video! I use your character map in Studio to create my paper font book. I find it so much easier to sort through my fonts in this format, but now I am going to fully explore Dafont’s tools. Thanks again!

I watched the video and it was great. Thanks so much. I was just wondering how to filter for commercial QK fonts. Thanks for the help.

Kay, I love your videos and blog. This video was so informative. I watched your video “Quick Stamp Mats In Silhouette Studio”. Did you ever make another video with audio or a tutorial? I would like to do this with my stamps. What did you cut the mats out of?
Yes I did make another video here. http://cleversomeday.wordpress.com/2012/06/18/stampmatsss/ I just cut the mats from card stock to stamp on.

who knew! great tips and thank you! i’ll get more use out of dafont now!
Kay….in my book you are the font expert!!! What do you think about the La Veronique Script??? I found a price of $20 for it…is that good?
TIA, Pam Conner
Hi Pam, No question that La Veronique is beautiful, on trend and well made. I am in favor of compensating type designers for their beautiful works, but a couple of things to consider with respect to its value to you. Do you have Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop in order to access all of the glyphs, because it is not coded to work with Character Map, etc. and what rights will you get for that $20 price? I purchased the font as part of a bundle with extended rights, but most of the single font purchases carry more restrictive rights, so something to consider.
