As a writer I spend a lot of time typing on the computer and I like to break up the monotony by changing up the font. While I can’t deliver most orders in handwriting fonts, I have a special attraction to writing with handwritten fonts. One thing that I thought would always be cool would be to have my handwriting turned into a font. In the past though, they used to charge for such as service and that was frustrating. Now you have an option, Calligraphr.
Calligraphr is a website that allows you to write on a piece of paper then scan it into the computer. Once scanned into the computer, your handwriting can quickly become a font. The website can automatically convert your handwriting with no additional work needed by you. I saw this and had to try it. On the same day I found out about the website, I created an account and started to make my handwriting a font.
My first try was not that impressive. It came out looking all uneven with sizes not matching. Then I realized that it was because the printer printed the lines on the boxes haphazardly. Now I went through and redid the writing and subscribed to a premium account temporarily. This allowed me to add more characters and to edit them once I uploaded them. My font is now nice enough that I can read it easily on the computer.
Here is a sample of it:
I am not getting paid to talk about Calligraphr so when I say that I have really enjoyed it as a fun writing tool, you can take my word. Head on over and try making your own font. With a little bit of extra work you can even make a really nice font for free without having to subscribe. I just wanted to save some time and make my font extra nice.
