Default Embroidering scanned writing

I'm here to pick your brains regarding scanned handwritten signatures/messages and embroidering them. I would like to make a keepsake, probably a wall hanging, for an upcoming Zoom family event. I'm not sure what the best fabric and stabilizer would be for this project. Muslin, or any quilting quality cotton? I don't usually do dense embroidery and am concerned about potential puckering. I usually prep fabric with Best Press and use a no-show mesh stabilizer. Thanks for any suggestions.

Is this for machine embroidery or are you doing hand stitching?

For machine embroidery I use a sheer iron on fusible on the background fabric.

Remember "hoop when you can hoop" and "fuse when you can fuse".

I use a good quality fabric and put it in an embroidery hoop for hand embroidery.
