Single-Line Fonts

If you are someone who prepares files for CNC production, with text to mechanically engrave, Single-Line Fonts are fonts that save time during the fabrication process. Unlike the standard double-line fonts, it takes about half of the time to engrave with CNC routers or laser-engravers. Single-Line Fonts allow you to speed up your production. Engraving smaller fonts with a laser-engraver will not burn or melt the material, thus resulting in a higher quality.
