How To Turn Your Handwriting Into A Font

Pin It!

I lurrrrve handwriting fonts (well actually any fonts, but handwriting styles are high up my "love" list). I know I'm not the only one who does, so I thought that I would share a quick post on how you can make a font from your own handwriting. It is super easy, and you can use it for your post signature, scrapbooking or making your blog images look pretty.


Step One. There is a great website called MyScriptFont.com which will do most of the hard work for you.


Step Two. Download their template and fill it in with a black pen, (ideally the pen you use should have a medium thick nib). Make sure you stay within the lines and fill out every character that you may need - I like to add some doodles instead of some of the characters I rarely use.


Step Three. Scan your document to your computer and upload it to MyScriptFont.com.


Step Four. A new page will open which will show you how your new font looks. This will highlight if you've made any errors, like written outside the box or scanned your finished page in wonky. If it all looks okay, download your font.


Step Five. Once the file has been downloaded, install it to your computer.


Step Six. You will now be able to use your handwriting as a font!
