How to Make A Rhinestone Custom Name Tumbler

Specific Instructions for Silhouette users with TRW stone 1 Shadow font

1. Creating the Custom Name Design

Open Silhouette Studio and use TRW stone 1 Shadow Font to type a desired name.

TRW stone 1 shadow font

TRW stone 1 shadow font consists of 4 different fonts. Type the same name with each font (total 4 times) or copy and paste the name and change the font. For SS10 rhinestones, set your font size to 87. You may color each font differently to easily identify them. Click on the "Fill Color" panel and choose your colors. Go to Panel -> Fill Color

Notice the spacing of each letter doesn't line up with the other fonts, so ungroup all text. Highlight all the text, right click and click "ungroup" or go to Object -> Ungroup. (Ctrl + Shift + G)

4 Sophia text

Highlight the blue Sophia text and send the text to the back by right click "Send to back" then send the green Sophia text to the back and lastly the red one. Make sure it has to be done in that order so when the text are align on top of each other, we can see all the text layers. Next highlight all of the same letters and click align center. You can go to Object -> Align -> Align Center-Middle or click the icon. Do this for all the letters in the name.

Once all the letters are centered aligned, highlight all of the same letters and move them closer to each other by clicking the left or right key arrow on the key board or holding the "shift" key and move the letters with the mouse.

Make sure the blue text layers are touching each other, that's how close we want each letter to be spacing from each other.
