Create and Re-Shape Lettering
Lettering doesn’t need to be basic! Do it your way with Hatch Monogrammer. Using a built-in “Embroidery Library”, Monogrammer makes it simple to add custom lettering to your designs. Select from the 60 included fonts or convert your own TrueType or OpenType fonts. Adjust your lettering width to make it bolder, or slant them to give an italicized look. Spread your letters apart with the spacing tool.
Edit your lettering using the “Select and Re-Shape Object” tool. Manipulate your lettering in multiple ways right on screen including: adjusting spacing, scaling lettering, and reshaping your letters to create your own personalized design.
Choose your own Layouts with multiple Baselines
Go one step further and choose your layouts with multiple baselines. Lettering shapes and layouts are what give your lettering unique shapes and structures. Choose from a variety of placements – Free or fixed, circle or arched, upright and even free form are just the start of baselines you’ll find yourself using.
Customize your lettering further by adding ‘lettering art’ styles which will distort your lettering by making it arch, compress, stretch or bulge- giving you the ability to manipulate your designs to your liking.
Lettering doesn’t stop at one line. When dealing with multi-line lettering, Hatch Monogrammer provides up to four alignment and layout options. You can even customize each line accordingly to achieve the personalized alignments and baselines you envision!
