I'm so excited to share a fun and easy method to create fonts with my own handwriting! I used an app called iFontMaker on the iPad and made my first font in about 30 minutes. 🙂 It was super fun and self-explanatory. Here's how it works: There are some standard fonts to choose from. You choose a font and then the app guides you through the entire alphabet (uppercase, lowercase, symbols), you draw each letter using the font as a guide for size and shape. It's so fun, Jeremy even made one! The stylus I used was the Bamboo Stylus for iPad. I hope some of you get a chance to try it (and the app too). I highly recommed them.
Here are a few (silly) examples of the fonts that I made in one sitting… If you would like the download these two fonts, just for fun, here they are: Download LoveLove + Download Tall 'n Skinny. ♥ if clicking links doesn't start download, right click (control + click on Mac), choose "Save file/link as…"// Mac * PC
If you've used a different method to make your own font, please share. Hope you have a great day! Elsie
I ALWAYS use this fonts… can you PLEASE create more! I love how original they are.
wow nice blog thanks for sharing
NICE BLOG My brother recommended I may like this blog. He was totally
right. This put up truly made my day. You can not believe simply how much
time I had spent for this info! Thanks!
Such a lovely font!
Oh BTW, I love your blog! Would you mind if I marry it? ^^
Fab link! Many Thanks 🙂
Thank you for the fonts–this looks like a cool app! 😉
When I first tried to download the fonts it didn’t work (using Windows 7 & Firefox). Then I realized it was automatically saving them as a text doc.
So in the pop-up save menu, I changed the drop-down “save as type” from “text file” to “all files,” then it saved correctly as a .ttf file.
Hope this helps if anyone else is having the same trouble! 😀
How fun! Thanks for sharing!
But here is the big question- can you actually USE them on your iPad?! And if so, how?
These are AWESOME. Thanks so much.
I’ve always wondered how to make fonts! this app makes it look super duper easy. I don’t have an ipad, but there is one in the classroom where I work. this would be super fun to do with some of my students.
I love it! I’ve downloaded it immediately!
LOVE this! finally downloaded and made my own font here: http://2ttf.com/NhL5JcHy
So fun. Thanks so much!
This is so so fun! Just bought the app and a bamboo stylus and I’m having a blast. Thanks Elsie!
And how about kerning and spacing?
This is cool. Definitely, I will try this and I will create my own Font.
Love your font so much!! Appreciate if you could share how the font merge with photos,thanks!!
So awesome. I’m gonna have to steal my mom’s iPad for that. Too bad I can’t do that on a Macbook or iPhone; then I wouldn’t have to wait to use hers!
Thanks for the links!
Just amazing how creative you are!!! Love the fonts – thanks a lot!!!
adore these! thanks for sharing!!
That space on the T. I wonder if this app supports kerning.
