If you're ever looking for commercial and personal use cut files and free SVGs and fonts...I'm of course going to recommend So Fontsy.

As many of you know along with Silhouette School, Silhouette U, and the Ultimate Silhouette Guide ebook shop - I am also one of the owners of So Fontsy.  We could not be more excited to have just re-launched So Fontsy capping off a nearly two year completely custom rebuild - bringing new features and a better overall experience for you and our awesome designers.

If you’re not familiar with So Fontsy we are a marketplace style SVG and font ecommerce website  offering cut files and fonts specifically for die cut crafters - all 100% commercial and personal use. Along with SVGs and fonts we also have craft mockups, sublimation prints, applique and machine embroidery designs, clipart and templates.
 
Today I thought I'd share 10 tricks, new features, and secrets about So Fontsy....which we put in place based on feedback from you!  And more features are coming soon!

1. Print Off Your Order 

All So Fontsy users are now able to log into their accounts and print out a copy of their order.  Go to the Orders section, select an order number, then click "Print Order".

This will let you save the order as a PDF which you can print off. This makes it easy to see exactly which design do you have and which you’ve already purchased.

2. Don't Re-Buy the Same Fonts and SVGs

Don’t worry about buying designs you already have...or buying more than one at a time. We won't let you add more than one of the same product to your cart.

And if you already have it, we won't let you buy it again.  When you’re hovering over a product and it does not say 'Add to cart' but instead says 'Download' that means you've already purchased it. This works for individual products and bundles.  The hover trick won't work for designs that you got with the purchase of a bundle.

But I have a trick for that too....

3. So Fontsy Bundles Logs 

It's now easier than ever to organize your SVG and Font Bundles from So Fontsy! All of our font and design bundles include a free printable PDF bundle product sheet. This makes it super easy and convenient to reference and remember which commercial use svg designs and commercial use fonts you own! The downloadable and printable PDF will download with the bundle.

4. Lifetime Access and Unlimited Downloads 

Also So Fontsy purchases are stored in your Account so you have lifetime access. This means you don't need to worry about downloading everything immediately.  You can also save storage space on your computer hard drive by letting us store your purchases for you!  Don't worry you get unlimited downloads so if you do download a product then want to delete it off your computer, you can always come back and download it again.

5. Download EXACTLY What You Want When You Want it 

There are several ways to download your purchases now giving you lots of flexibility depending on your immediate crafting needs and storage preferences.  
 
From the Orders area you can click an Order and either Download All (Red) to download everything in that specific order. Or you can select individual products to download (Black). Or you can download single products by clicking the Download button next to the product (Blue).

If you purchased a bundle because it was a deal you just couldn't pass up, but don't need everything right now?  From either the Orders or Downloads area, you can opt to either download the entire bundle or you can select individual products from the bundle to download.

From the Downloads area of your Account find the bundle and click Download Bundle to download the entire bundle.

6. Easily Identify Your Commercial Use SVG Designs and Fonts 

All So Fontsy products - including SVG designs, fonts, mocks ups, and machine embroidery designs include the free commercial use license. This means you can use our digital products and designs to make finished goods to sell, gift or keep for yourself.

But how do you know which of the SVGs and fonts that you own are commercial use? At So Fontsy we now add "So Fontsy" to the beginning of every zip file download from your So Fontsy account making it easy to identify where you got the file and instantly identifiable as commercial use!

**The only bummer is this change could not be retroactively applied to zip files/products that were originally uploaded by our vendors to the site prior to June 1, 2020. 

7. New Categories and New Products...and Newly Organized

So Fontsy has added a bunch of new categories including laser cut files for Glowforge and Epilog, free Unisub sublimation templates, and machine embroidery and appliqué design.

You'll also find popular and trending themes under the new Trending menu and current and upcoming themes will always rotate based on what's trending.

We'll also keep the sub menus under the Seasonal Menu updated!

8. Better Search | Easier to Find The Best SVGs and Fonts

So Fontsy search bar has also been greatly improved. The new search will now be able to not only pull up results based on your keywords, but you can then filter those results too.

Use the sub menus to filter by vendor, price, and product type and narrow your results.  This is helpful if you have a favorite designer or two!

A search has also been added to the Downloads and Order area of the Account section so you can search for products you already own.

You can then sort your purchases so find those you have yet to download, etc.

9. Search Within a Designer Shop 

You can also go directly to your favorite designer shop and search within the shop.  This way, if you know that you like a certain designer, you can go directly to the shop and search for things by keyword such as Farmhouse and only those Christmas designs from that shop will appear in your search results.

Some designers have also set up categories in their shops. This gives you quick access to all of that designers' products that fall into that category. For example clicking "Monograms" on this shop's menu bar brings up five results.

10. Search the So Fontsy Card Redemption Section

If you have a Card Redemption code you can use it to redeem free designs from the Card Redemption section. But with more than 1400 products it can be challenging and time consuming to find what you're looking for.

The trick here is to add a keyword to the main search bar on the So Fontsy website ...

...then filter the results by Collection selecting Card Redemption as the section
