Rockler Interlock Signmaker's Templates - State Park Font Kits
Produce countless enduring, classic signs with our instantly recognizable ''State Park'' Font sign-making system. Our State Park letter templates feature adjustable kerning for the most natural-looking layout of your text, with neat, even spacing between all letters. The kit includes a total of 99 template pieces, with letters, numbers, symbols, and kerning spacers. Includes a high-quality brass guide bushing. Recommended for use with a plunge router.
Continuous, unbroken letters! With our clever 2-stage system, you get neat, whole letters, with no seams. There is no need to split letters such as A, B, and D, as a way of securing the ''eye'' in the middle.
Kerning provides consistent letter spacing! Adjustable kerning allows letters with top- or bottom-heavy shapes to overlap each others space, eliminating awkwardly large spaces.
Convenient Sign Making Wizard lets you easily map out your word or phrase! Simply enter the words or phrases for your sign, and the wizard will create a custom routing plan with a visual guide for the sequence of templates needed and the number of passes required to rout the letters. Still not convinced this is the best way to create authentic, unique signs? Read the HomeFixated Review for more details.

My only complaint (and suggestion for improvement) is that the kits, for all the included symbols, do NOT include simple parenthesis! This was a shortcoming for my needs and I'm sure would be similarly frustrating for anyone needing to do area codes or similar clarifications of message.
If I'm overlooking something already included please let me know. Hopefully Rockler will consider this suggestion as part of an "expansion pack" or similar a-la-carte offering.
One note not relevant to the product directly - the bases that come with the Ridgid Corded Trim Router (e.g. R24012) do not fit the included brass guide bushing. No idea why these come with a larger-than-every-other-router thru hole but they do. If you intended to use one of these, you'll either need to make a custom base or use a different tool.

For the 1 1/2" set the letters are 1 1/4" wide, I is 1/2" wide and M and W are 1 5/8" wide, like the other set Kerning spacing will make it a little smaller. So count the letters in your word times 1 1/4" and that will be approximate.
The signs I make turn out very well and I enjoy making them.
Hope this answers your question.
1.) a smaller font, 1",
2.) various fonts and
3.) the ability to set the the letters in an arc?
I use an old Ryobi. You will need a Bushing Router Plate to mount the bushing guides. Rockler sells one but I don't see your Dewalt model number. I'm sure the one I purchased was at Rockler and described as a universal bushing router plate. However I don't see it online.
If you want to get the letters closer to each other, you could shift the template to the left a little after routing each letter. it would for sure be tedious and might not look good since it messes up the kerning that was baked into the template. But it should work
