How to Easily Turn Your Own Handwriting into a Typeable Web Font for Free

Untitled design

Forget Times New Roman and Arial fonts, start typing your own handwriting! I'm going to show you how to turn your unique handwriting into a font you can use on any computer.

This is one of the coolest things I have found in a long time relative to custom writing.

Here's how to do it!

Step #1 Register for a Free Calligraphr Account

Formerly MyScriptFont.com, Calligraphr will let you create a free account to create your first handwriting font. 

You'll need to confirm your email address before you can use the app. 

Don't worry, there are no hidden fees for a basic font creation.

Step #2 Log-In to the App and Choose Language

Once you've confirmed your email, open the Calligrapr app and choose your language. I used Minimal English.

Step #4 Fill It Out 

Here is an example of what mine looks like.

You may find that you'll want to do this more than once to get it perfect.

Step #5 Take Picture of Completed Template

You can use your basic smartphone or a scanner if you'd like.

I used my iPhone and just airdropped the picture to my desktop.

Step #6 Upload

Step #7 Select "Build Font" and Name It

Step #8 Choose .TTF or .OTF Output

You can choose .TTF or .OTF. Mac users (like me) will use .TTF.

Step #9 Install on Your Device

Different operating systems require fonts to be uploaded differently. On my Mac, I opened the TTF file and it brought me to the Mac application, “Font Book.”

Check out their about page for more information on uploading your own fonts to different operating systems.

The font will become accessible to most native programs on your computer such as Microsoft Word. If you want to use it elsewhere, you may or may not be able to. For instance, you can't add this font to Google Docs.

There you go, you now know how to make your own handwriting font! 

This is an awesome addition to any content marketing or creative design work you may be planning. Try it out and comment below if you have any questions!
