How to Create a Handwritten Font:

If you’ve ever been too intimidated to make a font, please stand up!

Well today, we’re going to show you a super quick and easy way to create your own handwritten version. (Sounds too good to be true, right?)


Step One: Download the iFontMaker App and instantly start creating your own font, based off of a host of popular pre-existing fonts. Don’t worry about perfection – the app smooths out bumpy lines for you. Use the editing function to adjust your strokes with the bezier handles. Create the Latin Alphabet, as well as numbers, symbols and a host of other scripts.

Here’s how mine turned out:
