Do you love the look of handwritten journaling but don’t want to mess with real pen and paper? Handwriting-inspired fonts are a scrapbooker’s secret weapon when it comes to journaling neatly, but with personal flair. You can even take it up a notch by getting your own handwriting made into a font! I don’t have the fanciest handwriting in the world, but I love the look of my own hand on my digital and hybrid pages. Darcy Baldwin created my font and is definitely whom I would recommend for high quality and fast turnaround. While there are several commercial services, I like to stick within the community.
Another option requires a little more patience, but could result in hundreds of scrapbookers using your own penmanship! You’re likely familiar with the gigantic Fonts for Peas collection from Amanda Bottoms. Amanda creates these fonts from handwriting samples submitted to her (for free!) from her fans. Just follow her simple instructions to get started!
Have you had a personal font created? What service did you use? How often do you use it?
