Turn Your Handwriting into a Font for Free


Think your handwriting is pretty neat? Well here’s your chance to share it with the world by turning it into a font, and it gets better, it’s free to do thanks to the good people at MyScriptFont.com

The process is quite simple, though you will need access to a printer and flatbed scanner. After your font has been generated, you can share it with others on sites like dafont.com, or just keep it for personal use it in your own projects. Get the look of handwritten invitations or thank you cards without the hard work of writing each one out by hand! You can also use your font with Silhouette digital cutter, since the software supports any True Type Font.

    You can laser engrave your handwriting on objects with a Ninja CNC laser or you can also use their robotic handwriting tool. Pretty cool they’re at ninjacnc.com

      Perhaps your keyboard is not set the correct country since keyboard arrangements are sometimes different.
