For total font addicts like me (over 4,500 currently on my computer), this is like the Greatest Site EVAR! :D

I'd seen that before, but as I have neither printer nor scanner here, it does me little good. :)

And you didn't tell me about it?? ;P ;P You know how much I love fonts!

It is way too cool! I love the fact that it's instantaneous, and not like you have to wait to get it back sometime after submitting the file. :)
SKingListskinglist on January 24th, 2004 10:59 pm (UTC)
your handwriting is illegally neat, do you know that? ;)

really makes me want to hook up the scanner again, so everyone can see just how illegible my handwriting is


5000!
Melody: magiccomeseptember on January 24th, 2004 11:04 pm (UTC)
Hehehe! That's generally the case with lefties. ;)

I want to see your handwriting, so yes, do that! :D

And whoo-hoo! My 5,000th comment! :D

Oh you are the COOLEST :D

I'm so obsessed with fonts, this is like a dream come true. In the past, all the handwriting-to-font sites were charging 30-50 dollars to change it for you.

Your handwriting is so pretty!
And I will go try this too... But my scanner is semi-broken now :[ Should I go and try to make it work?
Melody: mecomeseptember on January 24th, 2004 11:28 pm (UTC)
That's exactly why I was so thrilled by this! I mean, the ones you pay for probably come out with better-quality fonts, but this is definitely usable and it's FREE! :D

Thank you! :)

Definitely try and fix your scanner--this is so worth any effort like that! :D :D

OMG AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME!!!!!! I am obsessed with fonts! :oD

Hee! I'm glad I've been able to excite so many people by passing on this link! :D

You're welcome! And yours actually came out neat! I don't like the way mine came out, especially the "a". Oh, well!
Melody: daffodilcomeseptember on January 25th, 2004 09:24 am (UTC)
I think yours came out nice! :D It's finer-looking than mine. :]

Having that site makes sense; virtually every computer user I have met in the past has at some point wanted to have a font of their handwriting, myself included. I have started to make a font of my handwriting using a font editing program, but it seems to be quite a lot of work, and maybe it is not worth it after all. With this site, maybe it will be quite a bit easier. Thank you for the link!

By the way, I really like your handwriting. :-)
Melody: daffodilcomeseptember on January 25th, 2004 11:26 am (UTC)
I'm considering cleaning up the font in an editing program, since it's not as smooth as I'd like at larger sizes. Also, there are no special characters (accented letters, etc.), which I do use and like to have in a font. :]

Thank you! :D

thats so awesome!!

too bad I don't have access to a scanner :(
Melody: bunneh eyecomeseptember on January 25th, 2004 11:48 am (UTC)
You should get one! They're not expensive. :)

I've seen something like that before, but it wasn't that site. This was a program someone had made and was pimping on their personal site. And it's not the same program, either. I guess it's a situation of same idea, different minds.

I'd do it, but there's no way it could accurately do my handwriting. I tend to include elements of cursive in my print, but only with certain letter combinations, and even then it's not consistent. I have extremely erratic writing. So I'd have to figure out some way to make it do my writing properly. I'll have to think about it.

Your writing's wonderful. :)
Melody: thoughtfulcomeseptember on January 26th, 2004 07:57 pm (UTC)
Yeah, this idea has been around for a long time. Six or seven years ago I got a CD full of handwritten fonts and the company offered a service for turning your handwriting into a font. It's nothing new, really, the site is just so convenient--and FREE! :D

A few people have told me the same thing about their handwriting in response to this link. ;D You could always make up a handwriting to use for the site--it might not look like your real handwriting, but it would still be uniquely yours. :)

Thank you muchly! :>
