How to Make Your Handwriting into a Font

How to Make Your Handwriting into a Font

Have you ever wanted to turn your handwriting into a font? With the help of MyScriptFont, you can easily turn your handwriting into a functional font in two easy steps.

I decided to try out the process today with my own handwriting. First, visit the MyScriptFont website, and download and print out the template they provide. Don't over think it and spend too much time working on the perfect letters, simply write as you would naturally. Mine came out as follows:

After you finish filling out the document, upload it onto the MyScriptFont website and in a few seconds you will have a font you can easily download. I received this "result" window upon successful completion of my font upload.

All you have to do next is download, and install the font onto your computer and you can use it for a variety of projects. In addition, you can create a decorative font using the same template. You don't necessarily have to use the template to make a font after your handwriting, you can use it to create a font with bolded or bubble letters as well. Then, use your handwriting font to your heart's desire - make posters, greeting cards, and even sign your name in emails with your very own handwriting font.

    I just created my first hand drawn font a few days ago! Good timing.

    Except I went the long way, and also used a Wacom tablet.

    It does look like the printed sheet was scanned at too low a resolution. Or that website only allows for a pretty low resolution input.

    It's still pretty cool how easy it can be to make a font though.(

    I tried this...it took about 30 minutes to complete and the results are fantastic. The quality was spot on to my original handwriting (not like the sample shown above). Give it a shot!
