Fig. C: Fontifier allows you to preview your font and a
sample sentence. If you like it, click the purchase button, or go back and tweak your characters some more.
6. Name your font.
My font is named “Natalie’s Handwriting.” You’ll also
need to enter your full name in the box below it for
copyright information for your font.
7. Preview your font.
Check to see if your characters are legible and well
aligned (Figure C). If you don’t like this preview,
tweak them some more and upload a new template.
8. Purchase and download.
If the preview is to your liking, click the purchase
button to pay by either credit card or PayPal.
Immediately after purchasing, you can download
your finished font! Install it in your computer’s font
folder and use it in your word and graphics programs,
such as Word or Photoshop.
If you’re looking to create a whole font family
with boldface and italic versions, it’s an extra $9 for
each of these. You may find it’s more fun to make a
variety of writing styles for your craft projects.
One thing to keep in mind is that your font is a
bitmap (not vector) version of your handwriting,
so the edges may look jagged at larger font sizes.
Use it for your digital photos, cards, or little notes.
