Unhappy Embroidering Fonts - HELP!

Excuse my ignorance, but I am new to embroidery.

I just bought a Viking Topaz 25 for my social business, The Little Haitian Factory, located in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. My Topaz 25 came with one font, Claredon, and 12 pt is the smallest size. Unfortunately, the font is still too big to put full names on our pockets.

I have tried using 6D QuickFonts to digitize new fonts but they are super irregular and ugly. I have bought a font for $10 online and then found that I need embroidery software to utilize it, which I don't have.

What are my options? Thank you in advance!

The Wilcom TrueSizer is very useful free software. The TrueSizer Pro would be even more useful - but costs $99.00.
You have possibly bought an alphabet consisting of individual letters which you would have to import individually to make a word - as opposed to a font, where you could type in a word and the letters would appear.

Dakotacollectibles.com has a product called Alphasizer. You would be able to make your names from there at the size you need.
