Ever wanted to turn your own handwriting into a font? Well now you can! Its a very simple process (although it might shock you how childish your handwriting is if you are like me)
Simply go to http://www.myscriptfont.com
Download the template file
Complete it, scan it in greyscale at 300dpi, A4 and then upload, and hey-presto, you have your own font!
On the Mac its really easy to install (just double-click on the downloaded file and then click on the install font button), if you are on Windows its a bit more complicated, but there is a nice tutorial on the PC Pro Blog
You can use your own font on any website you make too, by using CSS3 like so:
NB. Its important that your font file name is all in lowercase otherwise it won’t work on Internet Explorer. I use size 1.2em as the handwriting font can be a bit on the small side for on-screen reading.
PS. If you hadn’t already realised, provided my CSS3 works on your browser, this post is in my handwriting!
