Along the lines of the tappits...but individual cutters? Or can the tappits be used for thick cookies?

Sorry if this is a repeat - the search function doesn't seem to work very well for me and either brings up nothing or hundreds of untrelated things - argh!!

How large do you need? Are you looking for individual letters to cut out as an entire cookie (maybe 2"?) Wilton has good ones in their large set of cutters. Or, I often see alphabet cookie cutters at places like TJMaxx for very reasonable prices. Tappits are fine if you are placing letters on a cookie surface, but they would not be good for anything very thick.

tappits are for very thin detail not for cookies.

So glad you asked this question. I'm looking for a small letter cutter for cookies also. Approximately 1/2 in size or smaller. How small are the tappits?

Oops - meant to be more clear that I want cool fonts! I have some alphabet cutters that are just really boring and straightforward - was hoping to find some with interesting calligraphy or fun chunky letters...

i think i can help with the funky chunky letter cutter for making cookies.
jello has some neat letter cutters for their "jello jigglers" that are perfect for cookies (also for larger fondant letters).
i bought mine off jello's website, but i just checked and they are not listed, but i did find them on ebay:

for letters ON TOP of cookies, tappits work very well. in addition to the basic block, they have funky and script letters. the funky are the largest and work well on a 3" cookie (see the heart cookie i have posted). the script is quite small and by itself would look a little lost on a 3" cookie.

You can also blow up a font in word and use it as a stencil. Then lay over the top of the cookie dough and cut out your cookie. I did something similar in my pix (the gold monogram) except that was colorflowed on top of the stencil.

The main page also has instructions for how to make cookie cutters. That's something that I've been wanting to do. But it might be hard to do the alphabet.

But tappits are so small, they wouldn't work for what you are wanting.
