So as I promised on Instagram, here is the tutorial on how to turn your handwriting into a font! It’s completely free, and only requires a black pen, and a printer. And its super easy 😉
Go to calligraphr.com. Here, you can either create an account, or you can go for the “Quicktest” option. I created an account (its free) but that’s totally up to you.
Click on “Create a Template” and select “Minimal English”. Then you can download the template as either a PDF or PNG.
Print out your template and fill it in! I filled it out with 0.8 fineliner, but any black pen will work as long as its not too thin. It took me a couple tries before I was happy.
Once you’ve finished, scan and upload your filled out template. If you don’t have a scanner, the CamScanner app is really great. (Its also free)
Go to “MyFonts” and “Upload Template”. There, you can see how your font looks. If you’re happy with it, click on “Build Font” and name it!
Download and install your font! Here’s how mine turned out 🙂
And thats it! Hope you enjoyed this tutorial, and if you try it out, I’d love to see how it turned out!
