This website was developed by Troy Young, also known as TroyTube, as a way to allow crafters to create monograms and other images. Using my knowledge as an IT professional, programmer and crafter I have created this site to ease the pain and burden of creating easy to use images for items such as monograms, shadow layer text, curved text, and eventually more. The images created are easily saved as transparent PNG files and uploaded to die-cutting software such as Cricut Design Space for cutting using materials such as vinyl and heat transfer vinyl. I have purposely created the design tools to be a good quality image resolution for importing into Cricut Design Space, Silhouette Studio, Sure Cuts A Lot, or other die-cutting software.
I have made these tools available for free to the crafting community or anyone else that wants to use them. The website, time to build the site maintain/improve the tools require resources–time and money. To support my efforts I ask that you visit my website at troyyoung.com.com and use my affiliate links to shop or make simple donations via PayPal.
I have received several emails from people complaining that I use pop-ups on the website. The pop-ups only appear once each unless you refresh or reload the page. Personally, I believe a couple pop-ups on a website that has entirely free tools to use is a small price to pay. The alternative is to make the website a paid membership and I would rather not do that.
Thanks for your support!
P.S. Please read the instructions and watch the videos on how to use the site. My schedule is far too busy to hold anyone’s hand on how to use the tools when they simply refuse to read or take a few minutes to watch a video that clearly shows how the site works.
