All of the Grace Sets are from the same parent font. All of the uppercase letters are different for Grace 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6. They have different swirls and swashes. All of the swirly alternate lowercase letters are different. We have also included plain lowercase letters in every set, so each set can be used on its own. Those plain lowercase letters may differ slightly or be the same as another Grace set.
Will the Grace sets work together?
Yes! The sets are sized so that the 2 inch uppercase letter from one set can be used with the 2 inch lowercase or alternate lowercase from any of the other sets. All of the sets can be used on their own or interchanged.
How do I access the alternate lowercase letters in the BX format for Embrilliance?
We can only map 2 letters to each key on the keyboard (uppercase & lowercase), so we mapped the alternate lowercase to the number row. A “Bx Key” file is included with your files that shows you where to find each alternate lowercase letter. It is a TXT file.
Why do some letters have one type of swirl and others have another type in the same Grace set?
The parent font options vary greatly from letter to letter, so some letters have more options than others. We tried to pick our favorite letters in the set and give you lots of options while keeping the original font design intact.
Is there one set you would recommend for smaller hoops?
If you are limited to a smaller hoop, we recommend the Grace 5 set. Grace 3 has the smallest swirls and swashes after Grace 5.
Do you plan to offer more Grace sets?
We are finished with the letters after 6 sets in small and large sizes. We also offer 32 Grace Accents and 4 Grace Frames. Each of these elements was designed specifically to pair specifically with the Grace letters by the font designer.
