How to Turn Your Handwriting Into a Font for Free


I mentioned it before, that I hate my handwriting.  Hate is a strong word, I like my handwriting, but what I dislike most about it is that it is inconsistent.  When I write a long paragraph it looks as though five different people wrote it.  What I love about making my handwriting into font is that it makes my handwriting look better.  I made a photobook for my daughter and wanted to use my handwriting as the font.  After searching I found this awesome website that converts your handwriting to font for free!  Who doesn't love free?  And it couldn't be easier.  You simply download the template, fill it in, scan the template and upload back to the website.  Within seconds you have your own handwriting font, easy peasy.

This is the website that I used: http://www.myscriptfont.com/

I was not paid for this post, I just really wanted to share this cool site with my readers.  There are other sites out there that can make your handwriting into font but most of them you have to pay for.  This site may not have all the bells and whistles, but its free.


You can add little doodles in the symbols fields also.

  12. Love this and very excited about it! But: I uploaded my font and now I don't know where it went to! Does it download automatically? I've checked my downloads and my fonts, but it's not there for me to install. Suggestions?
