From my own handwriting. :D
Tell me if you like it.

I call it "teep"
It's hard to judge something so personal. You should check out some of the handwriting type fonts out there already just to compare yourself. I think it would be difficult to use a font like that since it has such inconsistent changes in letter spacing.

You plan on doing a whole alphabet and characters?

I think it's cool. But, can you change the spacing between the letters?
I dont know.

It has something to do with the way the program produced each letter.... :p


I have never made a font before. So all this is new.

I used to use Fontographer to make Mac/PC fonts. I'm pretty sure it is still available but it's not a free download.

Saw that, but at $349 its way too much. I'd pay $99 for something that would let me do it, though.

...This face is the new Goudy or Palatino, so well thought out and clean, I think it would make a great body face .... just goes to show that with all the technology we have, this is what we get from our new typographers!

If you have $9, a printer, and a scanner, you can use www.fontifier.com
You print out an alphabet template, write each letter by hand, and then it scans your template and produces a font for you. It supports Mac and PCs. Of course, it's really only good for fonts of your own handwriting. But it's fun, easy, and they even show you a preview of your pending font before you pay the $9 to download the file.
