New Font

Its been some time now that I have been considering creating a font, but every time I have looked at a tutorials for programs like fontforge, and glyphs, it always seemed like something that would require a bit of background understanding on structure and just basic rules. Thats important. You have to know the rules before you can break them. So I will do more study on that. During my search though, I discovered calligraphr, which lets you design your own font. I tried it out and it was great and user friendly. All you have to do is write the font out in the spaces provided, scan and upload it and voila! You will have transformed your own handwriting into a font.

Here’s mine, it has the basic, Caps, small caps, numbers and basic punctuation which is what I use for comics. To use the full features and have more characters you have to pay a monthly fee. Which is fine too if you are looking at doing this constantly. A word of advise, each box has 5 spaces in it, your writing needs to fit within the spaces consistently or you’ll end up with ‘jumping’ letters.
