The example picture has the red solid line but when it’s downloaded in VIC cursive, the solid line is blue.

Hi Christine,
Thanks for your comment. The lines that have been used for each font have been taken from that state’s guidelines. We use the website, http://www.austranschoolfonts.com.au to gain our information and the Victorian handlines are all blue. If you have different information feel free to send it through to us at [email protected].
Thanks so much

Could you please make an alphabet strip that has the dirt, grass and sky letters on the correct lines? Just like this but with the letters all in a line so I can print and laminate them and pop them on student desks. Also with the Victorian Modern Cursive font option would be great please!

Hi there,
Would it be possible to have the handwriting line option of- dotted, dotted, solid, dotted. As to write on the solid.
The sample picture above is of this format, but it is not available to download without cursive font.

I would really appreciate this line format with ACT (NSW) font.
Thank you kindly,
Kylie 🙂

Yes agree with this comment, the letters should sit on the solid line.
