    I am very disappointed in the quality of the content in this resource. Contractions such as ‘when’d’ and ‘it’d’ are not valid in the english language and should not be something that would be taught to students in Australian schools.

      Hi Emily,
      Thank you for your feedback and for bringing this to our attention.
      We have removed those contractions from the Australian font downloads and apologise for any inconvenience caused.
      Kind regards

    Can you make these without the zigzag line, it’s easier to cut out.
