While the handwritten words work pretty darn well because Silhouette cuts so beautifully, occasionally you may want to cut them smaller or on something more paper-like where it will require them to be thicker.

Did you know you can thicken ’em up yourself?

It’s sooooo easy.

Take a look.

Please note: If you are working with the DXF file like I am here, turn your image into a compound path first by selecting all parts of the word, right clicking and selecting Make Compound Path.
