Today I am going to show you how to create your own font using your handwriting. There are thousands of fonts available out there but you can be sure someone is using the same font as you are. Ever thought of having your own font, or better yet turning a handmade alphabet into a font for personal or creative use?
Here I will walk you through the steps and show you how to turn your handwriting into a font for FREE.
First, go to MyScriptFont.com. You’ll then need to download the printable template, either as a PDF or PNG. Once you open up whichever version you prefer, then print it out.
Next, write out the alphabet and numbers in your style, using a black marker. Dark blue also works. It is important that you use a felt pen instead of the regular ballpoint pen, or the text would not come out clearly.
When you’re done, scan the template at 150dpi or 300dpi. The template needs to be scanned in grayscale and in ‘portrait’ orientation and should be in JPG, TIFF or PNG. The file size should be a maximum of 2MB or up to 6000×9000 (pixels).
Upload your scanned fonts to the MyScriptFont website. You can name your font and set it in the format you want the font to be: TFF or OTF format. When you’re done with the settings, click ‘Send file’ and let it load. After the font is converted, you’re allowed to download it to your computer.
For Windows, go to downloads and find the downloaded Font, And just double click on the font to install it on your PC.
