Make Your Own Font

I came across this great app the other day - make your own font!

It's super easy to use, and I found it super fun. Maybe I'm just nerdy like that, but who wouldn't want a font of their own handwriting?

It was almost $8 in the Australian iTunes App Store, but I thought it was worth it. I'm always on the look out for the perfect fonts for so many different applications, and now I can make my own when I can't find the right thing.

And I had another great idea - you could make a font out of your child's handwriting!
On the iPad screen in the app, you can have the outline of another font in the background, and then you just go through the upper and lower case alphabet, numbers and symbols and draw your font with either your finger or a stylus.

Get your child to write the letters, so while they're practising writing & tracing their letters, they can be making a font! (You can go back a redo letters so there's no pressure to get it right first time.)

How cool would that be. The Bubs is a bit young to be writing her letters yet, but I'll definitely be doing this when she is starting to write.

Meanwhile I've made a couple of fonts while I was testing it out.

Feel free to download them if you'd like :)

1. Jessie's Font  - creative name I know - I'd saved it before I knew how to name it properly!
2. Specialty Bunny - I'm a Killer Bunnies game fan.
