Default Roman Letter Templates

Hello all
I'm not much at drawing not even letters or numbers. In the DVD by Wayen Barton he showed how to draw Romen Letters. I've tried drawing some but they dont look very good. Are there templates you can buy or download or maybe add to MS office 2010 or 2007 so I could print out the lettters I want and trace them to the project I want them on. Thanks

In MS Word,
1. select the font/type face that you want.
2. type in the point size that you want, over top of the variety that you see in the little pt box
for example, type in 200 and see if you like that size

And, if that still isn't large enough (maybe you're doing a sign), print it out, take it down to the local copy center (Kinkos) and have them copy it to whatever size you need.

Ditto the above. I use the "print outline" function to save ink and it is easier to follow lines rather than a wide black field. IMHO

Good morning and Happy Easter everyone. Thanks for the tips. I've use the one about places like Kinks in the past for some of my scroll saw patterns. Thanks to Marty (My Chip Carving) I think he really has a great site. I how have a program that is just what I was looking for it called Open Office www.openoffice.org it's a free program and with the help of a video for platinum members on www.mychipcarving.com I was able to make a pattern I can use to put lettering and numbers along the rim of a plate very cool. This program just maybe helpful to some others. Thanks Marty
