Hi Earl,

I don't think that's gonna work unless those are TrueType fonts. You could open them with the software they were digitized with (EOS?), then save in .dst for instance and insert into an .emb file... if it makes any sense to you

HI Earl,
As another member mentioned previously the file types you have been given are native to another software package and Wilcom is unable to open them. It was also suggeted the could be opened with the native software and converted to a .dst file. a dst file is common to most software packages. These will only be embroidery files and not the .esa file that Wilcom uses to create keyboard lettering.

I have a short article on our site at www.logopunch.com
I woud be happy to help with any other questions you might have about wilcom.
Regards

John
