Letter Stencil for kitchen tiles - and Scrabble font would be fab if possible

Hello - new here. I am having a new kitchen and planning to have cream/white tiles as my splashback. Did think about having some lovely painted words on said tiles (you can get herbs, Coffee/tea or puddings) but these are all ££££ and I am worried I may get bored of them or find them a bit ....I don't know "twee" or "meh" after a while. Then I thought I could do my own with a white board pen. Yes it would go each time it got wiped but I could just ring the changes as I wanted.

So I am after some advice on good lettering stencils. Needs to be fair sized letters - about 2 inches high I would think - at least. And Scrabble Font would be fab.

And then when I have PMT, rather than writing "Cinnamon Cupcakes" I can write "Fishfingers is grumpy" behind the cooker so DH knows to make me a cup of tea grin

Any stencil experience gladly welcomed please as have never been near one in my life. Are there good ones - and is scrabble font available?

You could use scrabble letter stickers
Or these

It looks as though the font is "URW News Gothic" which would not work as a stencil very easily. You can make your own stencils from stiff card with a pocket knife if you can't find exactly what you want, but they don't work with bits in the middle of letters as they would "float"

Agree that it is a skinny version of News Gothic... however as you scale it up for a kitchen tile you should be OK... and you should be able to join up the "missing" lines free hand.

Thank you everyone. Liking the scrabble tile stickers - that may well be a fab option for what I want to do - and great to get a font idea....

Now just got to get everything finished so that I can do the lovely finishing touches.
