Make Your Handwriting into a FONT! Free!!
So I have been wanting to create a font with my own handwriting for some time now. So I was doing a lot of research of how to do it, for free! And it took me a while to find anything worth while. There are a lot of programs out there that help you make really great font's but, that just wasn't for me... Because they freaking expensive! So I kept searching.
Then I came across a YouTube video. And it mentioned MyScriptFont.com and by golly gee whiz!! It was just THAT easy. I didn't draw it by hand though, I used my Wacom Tablet and Photoshop Elements to write on the template.
Here's what my template looked like before submitting it:
It gives you little guidelines to follow. But, I didn't do a very good job at that. lol.
Then, you upload yours to MyScriptFont
And then it will show you THE QUICK BROWN FOX JUMPED OVER THE LAZY DOG. To preview what your font looks like, but I did you one better:
I felt so cool. Like... I was in some sort of exclusive club. That's my frikkin' handwriting! Right there! It feels like my name is in lights or something...
I would share it with you, so you can download and us it to, but I have no idea how to do that. So, get on that site and create your own!!
