How To Create Your Own Handwritten Fonts

You may not know this about me, but I’m obsessed with fonts. I love all of the different kinds, from swirly script to straight up sans-serifs and pretty much everything in between. And when I found out that I could make my own handwriting into a font, you’d better believe I did a little dance that may have resembled the Carlton. Anyway, I thought I would share with you how you can create your own handwritten fonts.

And as an added bonus, I’ve created 5 fonts of my own to share with you! (You can snag one or all five at the end of this post.) However, if you want to make your own fonts, keep on reading.

There are a couple of methods I know of that allow you to create your own handwritten fonts fairly easily. Both of these ways require a few accessories to get the job done.

1. MyScriptFont.com

This first technique calls for a printer/scanner. To start making fonts, head on over to My Script Font and download/print the free font template. Using a black pen, fill in each box with the corresponding letter/character. When you are finished, scan the paper and upload the file to My Script Font.

2. iFontMaker

The second way to create your own handwritten font is to use iFontmaker app for iPad. The app itself costs several dollars, but it is totally worth it in my opinion. I have had so much fun playing around with this app and creating new fonts (and so have my hubby and kids!) After downloading, open the app and get started. You can find a basic tutorials on the iFontMaker website and also on YouTube. This app is truly awesome and my favorite way to create a fun font!

So, what are you waiting for? I would love to know if you try out either of these techniques or if you know of any other ways to create your own handwritten font.

You can download any of the following fonts that I created for FREE by clicking on the links below.

All fonts are free for personal use only. If you are interested in using these fonts for ANY commercial use (anything that generates income), including, but not limited to art, blogs, ebooks, etsy, logos, printables, scrapbooking, adaptions, etc., please contact me. Thank you!
