icon For monogramming or for use in embroidery stitching, there are five fonts that contains five different types of characters: upper case letters, lower case letters, numbers, symbols and European characters. Font styles include Gothic, Outline, Calligraphy, Serif, and Sans Serif. Just how big are the fonts on the Brother SE 400? We’re talking really good-sized fonts. Fonts you could read across the room with the right fabric and thread combination

icon The exact dimensions of each font size are slightly different based on which of the five fonts you select but the small size is approximately 3/8 by 3/8 inch square, the medium size 5/8 by 5/8 inch square, and the large size is 1 1/4 by 1 1/4 inch square. To the left are some pictures to help you get a feel for the size and scale of these fonts.

I was pleasantly surprised to receive my shipment the day after purchase!!! Super fast shipping! Easy transaction through PayPal. Would definitley recommend Allbrands and will shop with you guys again. Thanks for a great experience purchasing my 1st sewing machine :)

Christi, Arkansas
Great shipping, great price and great sewing machine!

Cheryl, Howe, TX
I ordered my SE400 last Friday and received it on Tuesday - four days from ordering to delivery. I was thrilled. I've had it a little over 24 hours and I may never leave my sewing room again! I originally bought it strictly for the embroidery since I have a sewing machine and a serger. After watching the DVD that came with it, I don't know that I'll use either of my other machines. This one even snips the threads for you. WOOT! Quick service, excellent product, and ease of use - for a first time embroidery machine owner I am pleased!

Tammy, Louisiana
Thank you for the great service!!!

Michael, New York
Wonderful product! Thank you.

Joann, Texas
A friend recommended your company and I would definetly agree with her on the service. I haven't used my sewing machine to it's fullest as yet but am very satisfied with the sewing I have done. There is so much to learn.

Noreen, Texas
I could not be any more happier with the machine and service.I really was surprized of all the extras that came with it! Good job AllBrands!!! Thank You

Marcie, Oklahoma
I ordered this sewing machine (Brother SE400) for my daughter for Christmas. I ordered it on Friday December 3 2010 and reeived Wednesday December8. Very Pleased with the ease of puchasing from AllBrands. My daughter is estatic with her new sewing machine... It is more than she ever dreamed of in a machine. so many capabilities. Versatile and easy to use. Very quiet. Even my 12 year old grandaughter loves it and is beginning to learn to sew! Thanks AllBrands and President John Douthat for allowing me to leave feedback for your company and my order! Happy Holiday!

Ludy, Texas
The machine & other items that I ordered were in great condition upon arrival. I have purchased items from Allbrands a few years ago and that is one reason I bought my new machine there. One Item was back ordered::: FREE Designs in Machine Embroidery Magazine, Premier Source for Embroidery Projects and Ideas. Sample Issue Edited by Eileen Roche - DIME, DZME, DZNS THANKS for your great service, products and prices. Keep up the good work.

Christy, Florida
The young lady that helped me was so very nice and helpful, her name is Monica. I purchased a different embroidery machine a few years back and she helped me figure out which machine was close to that one, and a good price for me. I do appreciate her help. Thanks!

Irene, Georgia
Thank you for asking my opinion of your web site and the handling of my order. My order was handled with utmost efficiency and courtesy. Your web site is easy to nsvigate. As I told you, I am familiar with Allbrands from purchases for an upholstery business and trusted you. Trust in a company is very important to me. I could address things about the machine that you would not have any control over, such as the USB cord was not quite long enough, had to do some rearranging in order to connect to computer. I haven't done any of the embroidery functions yet but I'm sure it will fill my needs. I also have a cousin that will give me hands on lessons. I am an 81 year old widow and needed something other than my computer to occupy my days. Thank you for the fast service I received.

Edmond, Louisiana
I have not used my sewing/embroidery machine yet, but I have had other Brother machines and I have been well satisfied with them. There is no reason for me to believe that this won't be the same in ability and ease of use.

Bonnie, Michigan
I will definitely purchase as much of my sewing needs from your company as possible.

Belvia, Texas
I am very pleased with my recent purchase of my Brother PE 400 machine. Your site provided a very informative description of the product and I was thrilled to find the "extra items" that were included free of charge. The package arrived safely through UPS shipment but I was disappointed in the outer box. The packing was not sufficent to keep the outer box from being torn and the tape coming loose. The inner factory box was unharmed to my surprise. I have placed another order with you this week and will continue to visit your site for additional products. I am a very satisfied customer and have recommended your site to friends and co-workers.

Hsinyueh, California
