I want to do some monogram windows for christmas presents, are there certain fonts that work better for that? Thanks Michael

How are you making the monogram on the glass?

Oh, I thought you were applying monograms to glass in some way, painting or etching perhaps. I understand now. There are several books with patterns for alphabets. I don't think any font is better suited than another. It all depends on how you break up the letters and the background. It also helps if you use thinner lead lines or foil lines between letters than in the rest of your design.
