a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I ran across zinester, GreogeRgR who used to make fonts out of samples of folks' handwriting.
After reading his profile, I started looking for someone who still did that type of service. I stumbled upon a site that will translate my handwriting into a font. The process is straight forward; you downloaded their template, used a black in pen to write the alphabet, scanned the results and uploaded the scan to their website. In just a few seconds the site returns a TrueType font. I cannot say that the font is an exact mirror of my handwriting — the spacing between letters is not the same and the template form caused me to write the letters a little differently than I normally would — but what do you want for free?
