Turn your handwriting into a font!

Hey guys, I've been looking for something like this for a while, and here it is!
http://www.myscriptfont.com/

You just print out a template, write on it, scan it in and upload it to their site, and they make a font for you. I just made one with my handwriting, and I can see so many possibilities with this for comic lettering. I just couldn't NOT share it! I hope you like it! :)

Yes, it's pretty rad.
I've been using Fred2 for almost all my comics, a font I made with that very thing. My handwriting has never been super legible, but it fits better with my drawings than anything else...

Wow! I always assumed you hand-lettered each comic. It really does work for you, man!

I've made a few with varying weights and styles with this. It's pretty awesome except, if I remember correctly, none of my closing quotes work. I just get a default preset quote symbol :/ No problem though, just draw them in I guess hah

Oh and it's good to tweak your font using something like FontForge if you need to adjust the spacing or positioning.

Oh yeah! The quotes are messed up on that site. Turns out they have an updated site that works much better! http://www.paintfont.com/

It lets you choose all the characters you want in your font, and it works really well!
