Best Free Script Fonts for Silhouette Cameo Cutter

I recently received a Silhouette Cameo and am so excited about it.  The one complaint I had about my Cricut Mini is that it doesn't allow you to use custom images or fonts.  Images I was ok with, but fonts, c'mon now, fonts should be a given.  To limit people to cartridges to me just seems like a bad strategy in the long haul.  I'm secretly waiting for Provocraft (makers of the Cricut) to go under.

I started searching the web for free cursive fonts that would weld well.  Below I compiled a list of my favorites.  Number two Pacifico is actually my all time favorite.  It looks great on everything I've cut and the lines aren't too thin so its not hard to remove from my vinyl cuts.  Keep in mind that some of these fonts you want to bold before using it to cut, or else it will be too thin.

1. Black Jack  2. Pacifico  3. Brannboll  4. Marketing Script
5. Honey Script   6. Saginaw   7. Brody  8. Lavanderia  
9. Channel  10. Harlow  11. Mistral  12. The Only Exception

Here is a little card I made using contact paper and Pacifico font.  You can use contact paper from the dollar store instead of the expensive Silhouette vinyl.  I just set the thickness to 6 instead of 9 in the cutting menu.
