SVG Fonts

This page is part of The Ultimate Font Guide, an introductory font manual that explains the basics of fonts and how to install fonts, use them in different applications and more.

What are SVG Fonts

We get the question “my SVG font doesn’t work in Cricut Design Space” quite a lot. Although this is also covered in other sections of this font guide we thought this deserves some extra attention as this can be very confusing.

As a crafter you are always told that the best files to use are SVG files. With INSTALLABLE fonts however, this is not the case. Don’t worry, you cannot do anything wrong or break anything, they simply won’t work. You cannot open an SVG font in Cricut Design Space or Silhouette Studio, or any graphic application for that matter.

The reason for this is that installable fonts that are converted to SVG’s are not meant for graphic applications but for the browser. So when you purchase an installable font and it contains a file called Font-name.svg, just ignore it.

Now we understand that some people are even more confused. Because on Etsy you downloaded a font and they were all SVG files that I could use in Cricut Design Space and Silhouette Studio. The confusion comes from the fact that those are not installable fonts.

There the designer created for every letter a drawing and saved it as an SVG file. It’s not a font that you can install and type on your keyboard and the letters will appear. Instead it is a series of SVG files just like other SVG files. So there is no difference between a flower SVG or a letter SVG in this case.
