Wonder if anybody here has any direct experience with this, specifically with making fonts for use on the Millennium Embroidery machine. We do embroidery where I work and a lot of times I will make the design first in Coreldraw for print or screenprint, then it will get sent over to embroidery to be digitized again if the clients want it sewn.
The guy who runs embroidery always complains he has to draw out all the letters except when I use when of maybe five fonts, like Arial, Lubalin, and a couple others. It would be great if I could make some fonts for the machine. I've looked around on the web and there seems to be very little information on this. Moreover, I gather there are 2 types of embroidery fonts, one, called a keyboard font which works they way one would expect fonts to work, and another which I don't understand at all but seems to not be usable to type out text with ( I know, that's not a really a font then is it? Maybe it's like individual monograms?)
Could anybody shed some light? Is there by any chance a way to make embroidery fonts with Fontlab?
