I am designing Montessori work sheets.

I wanted a Font for tracing for pupils. I googled it and found "KG Primary Dots by Kimberly Geswein", but when I use this font in my work sheet and printed it, the font was looking very thick for tracing.

KG Primary Dots font example

My question is that could you tell me any font that can fulfill my choice?

  • Adding an example image would be really useful, as that may explain what you mean by "very thick"; you should also be a bit more specific about what your requirements are. Dec 21, 2015 at 9:42

    couldn't you print it at 50% black? Also, if your students are still at the point where they're tracing, "thick" is a feature, not a bug. Dec 21, 2015 at 10:59

    ^ Very good idea (50% black or in gray). Aamir, what software are you using to create your worksheets?

I "third" the decision above to use that font in a gray color... but if you want other options, here are a couple!

  1. Trace Font for Kids (personal use only): http://www.fontspace.com/p-j-cassel/trace-font-for-kids enter image description here

  2. Raleway Dots: (free for commercial use)... http://www.1001fonts.com/raleway-dots-font.html This is another option, but may not have the "correct" penmanship that you're looking for. enter image description here enter image description here

  • The only issues I see with these fonts is: 1) The OP will need to add the lines, 2) They aren't much different from his own font for the tracing and 3) the shape of each letter and number is very important (eg. the "a", the "f", etc.)

  • Ahh, @go-junta, I assumed the lines were part of the document design and not as part of the font. And I do understand that the shape isn't perfect for penmanship!

  • There's a benefit in not having the lines though, they can be added in another color or darker than the text!
