How to Create Font with your Own Handwriting:
Creating font in your own handwriting is a simple 4 step process.
Step 1: Download and Print Template
The first step is to download and print template in which you will write fonts in your handwriting. For that, go to PilotHandwriting. Then click on arrow for “next”, and click on Print icon. This will print the template.
Step 2: Write in the template in your handwriting
The template that you printed will have 1 box for each alphabet. Just write in that box in your own handwriting. If you make a mistake, just print another template. Small edits in the template can be made step 4 as well.
Step 3: Upload your template
Now you need to upload the printed template with your handwriting to Pilot Handwriting. It provides 3 good options for that:
- You can scan your handwriting template, and then upload the scanned image.
- You can take photo of the handwriting template with a digital camera, and upload that to Pilot Handwriting.
- You can attach your webcam, and capture your handwriting template with that.
Step 4: Edit Fonts
Once you have uploaded your handwriting template, Pilot Handwriting will scan all the fonts from that, and will show those to you. You are also given opportunity to make basic editing in the fonts. Once everything looks good, Pilot Handwriting will convert your handwriting to font.
You can then create a letter using your font directly from within Pilot Handwriting, or you can download your handwriting font on your computer to use in other applications.
