What are some handwriting creation tips?

To achieve good results when creating your own font, it is important to fill in the form(s) carefully and follow these tips:

  • A thin felt-tip or ballpoint pen is recommended.
  • Leave a margin around each character (extend up to the hash marks); don’t draw up to the edge of each cell.
  • Try to be consistent with character placement in the boxes.
  • Scan in color mode at 300 dpi for the best results.
  • Please save as a JPG.
