I don't get paid to write reviews. Usually whoever I am reviewing has no idea that their products are being reviewed. I don't get compensated in any way.
Now that that's out of the way, yesterday I read about an app called iFontMaker. Since making my own handwriting font was something I always wanted to do, but never wanted to pay for, I started looking it up. It's $6.99 on the app store, which is more than I normally spend on apps, but I feel like it's worth the money.
You download the app and using the height guidelines draw your own strokes for A-Z, a-z, 0-9, !-), and the punctuation symbols.
When you are done, you can e-mail yourself a link to download the .ttf file. Go to Control Panel, Fonts, and drag the .ttf file into the Fonts folder. There, it's installed! Any program that uses your font library will see it now (if they were open when you installed the font you'll have to restart them to see it).
You can use 3 different types of brushes, adjust the radius of each, adjust the spacing, and a bunch of other tweaks in the app itself. It's so easy! I do wish I could find my stylus. It's not really my handwriting since I used my index finger, but it's close.
|Each flower made with a different brush type, but I hadn't adjusted the radius. Zig Zag/Chevron lines had it adjusted pretty thin|
|Letter "N" makes this signature for me, because that's the letter I drew my signature in|
What if you wanted to hand write the closer above your signature?
|Same font as my signature, but letters O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, & W|
|I didn't actually print or cut with my Silhouette for this particular post. The link at the top of the page that takes you to my giveaway should give you some ideas of how the Silhouette Software handles fonts.|
