Many of us tend to keep the things as much personalized as possible, we keep searching for the ways to make something look as if it has been designed especially for us, we like to wear T-shirts with custom message in them, we like to ride customized bikes, and so on. Well, here is a way to have customized font, i.e. you can now type the letters or the characters, in the same as you write them using a pen and paper, sounds cool, isn’t it?
What a fun it would be to send out emails in a font which looks exactly like your handwriting, well here is are the ways to get the font which resemble to your handwriting (the working mechanism of all these services is same, they give you template, download and print it, and write down the letters, so that they get to know how do you make the particular character while using a pen or pencil, scan it later, and upload to get the fonts) –
- Your Fonts –
As I have mentioned earlier, it follows the mechanism, download template, write on it, scan and upload to get the font. This one is actually a paid option however you can definitely have a preview of your font before you plan to pay for it to buy.
- Pilot HandWriting –
This one is free service from the Pilot Pens, account creation is required before you proceed, later you can download the template, and after writing on it, finally upload the scanned copy and get your font soon.

- MyScriptFont.com –
MyScriptFont.com is Free, and probably the one with the simplest interface. Download the template, fill (write) it, scan as grayscale with 300dpi, later upload. You can name your font while uploading, and also this tool allows you to select the font format, you can choose TTF, OTF or SVG font.
MyScriptFont.com definitely seems to be a better one as far as the user experience and pricing are the point of consideration, but in terms of the quality of output (i.e. the level of match found in the font and actual handwriting), I am not sure as I haven’t used them all personally, so in case you use them all, share your views about it with us, do tell us which worked best for you, and why do you call it the best.
