Hello, I know some of you get your fonts for toppers from your computers. Please share your tips on what you use and if there is anything you do to the gum/fon to make the cut so smooth like if you used a cutter. What are you cutting with and how thick are you rolling your fon/gum?

I use a really sharp exacto knife to cut my monograms out. I've also found that 1/4" to 3/8" is a good thickness to use. I've done it where I've cut two letters (one backwards) and then put them together with wire in between the layers. Or I've simply pushed the wire up into the letters (carefully) if I only plan to do one thick layer. I think the key is to let them dry very thoroughly and don't use a font that has really thin lines. If you do, you'll need to widen them a bit.
