Personalized Font Generator

Since today is tax day here in the U.S., I don’t want to tax you with a serious topic. So here’s something fun you can do. But do your taxes first! I don’t want you blaming me for distracting you from doing your civic duty!

If you have a scanner and a spare hour, here’s a site that will generate a font based on your handwriting:

    Very cool. At least your cursive is legible. My penmanship has always stunk! Computer use has made it even worse.

    The spacey problem can be solved by working on the kerning, if the program allows you to dig that deep.

    I used to create fonts for fun. Thanks for pointing this out!

    Jordan–I spent about 20 minutes kerning the text I posted here! some of the letters need it, some don’t.

    So. Cool.

    Though I think I’d limit it to a signature. My handwriting is nothing so beautiful as I feel I need to see more of it.
