Default ???? about Adding words or names on bows

Hello. I was wanting to try to personalise some of my cheer bows that are 3&1/2" to 4" wide by adding names on the loops or tails. I was wondering what is best to use to do this? What size & style font would you recommend? I was thinking I might try to make my own stencils and use them to make iron on letters from different materials but I am not sure. All your insight is appriciated. Thanks and hope you have a blessed day!

Idealy you would want to invest in a vinly cutter/plotter. For starting out I would recommend the circuit or shilloutte. Good Luck!

Thank you Cheerstones for your reply. Is there one particular cricut machine that you would recommend? I noticed the machines and all the accessories needed are a bit pricy. Since right now I just make cheer bows for my daughter & nieces I am not sure if it would be worth spending so much for a cutting machine. I did find a used one for sale in my area. It is a Cricut Expression with 3 cartridges. Are you familiar with this machine? I assume it is an older style since I saw a Cricut Expression 2 machine on the cricut.com. I wonder what the main difference is in the Expression and the Expression 2.

Unfortunately, I am not familar with the machine. My mother did have one quite a few years back when they first came out and she was able to cut out names with it so I may work, if that's all you need to do. Also, it should not be an issue to order a few names from someone on the board....I work with someone that makes mickey ears; I cut out everything that she needs for her order(s) for her. Good Luck!
