Available fonts

Here are a selection of fonts.
Generally the size of text is 12mm on handkerchiefs.
We embroider across one corner of each hankie.
We have two settings for the initials which are straight or are diagonal/stepped. Please see FAQ for examples.
Please be sure to choose the correct setting for the font type you are choosing.
On font types with a flourish certain characters do appear larger,
especially font 22 which the letters are best set up diagonal/stepped- where one initial is lower than the other.
