“Create My Own Font” Experiment

Look at that — I turned my handwriting into a font!

I mentioned this very cool “make your own font” idea from MyScriptFont.com, via Hongkiat.com, in my recent Around the Web blog post. I printed out the template, wrote out the alphabet a couple times in black Sharpie, scanned it, uploaded it, and here we are. Easy, right?

I may go back and take a second pass at it, being extra conscious of the heights and slants of certain letters. The bottom tips of a couple lowercase letters are just barely cut off, a few letters seem to float higher on the line than others, and I’m not a fan of how much certain characters slant to the right. All those minor deviations aside, it’s a pretty nice font — if I do say so myself!
