Make your own font

If you want to make your own font, you will quickly realize that you don’t have the right tools. But there are a few tricks and tools that can help you create a font. For example, it is possible to create a font directly on the PC by simply storing the corresponding characters in a graphics program and uploading them to designated websites. This way, you can create a font online and get suitable results in a few seconds. Today we would like to introduce one of these possibilities in more detail.

Here’s how you can get a font created online:

However, when creating your own typeface, it is still important to have your own standards and a little diligence. The more effort you put into the project, the better the result later on. Thanks to various websites, you can also download a template that can be printed out if necessary, so that you can even have a font created from your own handwriting. So it is not difficult to create your own font, but the result depends very much on your own ambitions. However, even for pure trial and error, it can be worth it, because with each pass you learn more about what is needed to create a font smoothly.

Step-by-step instructions:

  • Go to MyScriptFont.com
  • Download the template at step 1
  • Open the template with an image editor or print it out (depending on whether you want to use your handwriting or not)
  • Fill in the sheet completely
  • If you had printed it, scan it again now
  • Save the image as .JPG or .PNG
  • Go back to MyScriptFont.com
  • In step 2 upload your image, give it a name and choose a format (I recommend TTF)
  • Click on “Send File”
  • In the preview you can now download and install your font
  • Ready
