If you’re a creative person, I just know you’re going to get a kick out of this tutorial. In this tutorial I’ll show you how to turn your handwriting into a font for free. It’s really easy to do, and allows you to add a personal and unique touch to your graphics.
Sounds fun, right?
Turn Your Handwriting Into A Font
1). In your browser go to myscriptfont.
2). Download, print, and fill out the template. You can choose between a PNG or PDF file download. I went with the PDF file.
As it mentions on the template, be sure to use a medium-thick, black felt pen when filling out the template. I used a Sharpie fine-print permanent marker.
3). After filling out the form, scan it to your computer. You want to make sure you actually scan the photo. Taking a photo of the template with your phone won’t work.
I scanned my template using an app on my phone called “CamScanner.” This app is pretty cool because it turns your phone into a scanner. Here’s how mine turned out using the app:
4). Now go ahead and upload your scanned template to myscriptfont. You’ll also want to name your font, and choose your output format (either format will work just fine).
As you can see on my template, I only filled out the top section of the template, and I didn’t fill out any of the optional letters. As the form states, when it comes to the optional letters, only fill out the ones you need.
5). Click on Start and download your font.
Here are my results:
If you’re not happy with your results, I recommend filling out the template until you’re completely happy with the end result.
If you’re feeling generous, you can even offer your font as a free download for your readers!
