This is Really Cool!

I don't know why I'm so fixated by this new thing I found on Pinching Your Pennies.

"YourFonts.com is a FREE online font generator that allows you to create your own TrueType fonts within a couple of minutes.

Your own handwriting turned into your very own font for free
Optionally include your signature
You'll have your very own font within 15 minutes
Make as many fonts as you like
Use your fonts on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux
Personalize your digital scrapbook pages
Make your own "family handwriting history"
Use your fonts in Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and every program that you own

There is another site out there that you can do this on but it costs money and here is a free alternative. You download the pdf and print it out and fill it out with your handwriting. You then upload it back to the site and it will create a font that you can use on your computer based on your handwriting."

Here's a sample of my font:

I absolutely love it! I keep writing nonsense just to see my very own font! It's like I'm immortal in a way. Like, I could die tomorrow (knock on wood!) but whomever had this font could still write in my writing!

So go do this and email me yours, so I can have your writing forever! I promise I won't forge anything.


  1. Thanks for sharing, that is awesome!

  2. totally cool. I had to try it right away.

  3. What if I want your font instead of my own font?

  4. Yeah I want your font. Your writing is cute than mine.

  5. I found this site just the other day: http://kevinandamanda.com/fonts/fontsforpeas/

    You can download all of theirs for free as well. So cute!

    I want mine done... Thanks for sharing that link!

  6. Sally, I have spent the last 1 1/2 hours playing around with this. You've ruined me! Now I want all my kids to do their own fonts, too. SO FUN! Thanks for the link.

    Is there a way we could share fonts? Yours is so cute.

  7. Okay, I'll email my font to those of you that want it. Just let me know in a comment and make sure I have your email address.

    Rachel, I checked out that site you recommended, and it was awesome! Thanks!

    I can "just barely" post a comment----and you think I could do all that??? I don't think it's gonna happen! Love ya, MOM

  9. Woah, so how in the world do you upload your handwriting back onto the computer? I just don't get that. Is it by using a scanner or something? Which, I don't know how to do that either. It's really cool, but I am not the most computer savvy woman in the world. You're amazing Sal:0)
