Handwriting Fonts

We offer this service more then 10 years, have built many hundreds of handwriting fonts and all our customers were quite happy.
Our technique is not based on autotracing routines, designers carefully investigate your writing, select the most typical versions of letters and manually digitize and place them into font, setting necessary spacing and kerning. By a special request we can add alternative variants of letters and build OpenType font with pseudo random or contextual substitution of alternatives.

You may see sample of such a font in comparison to original writing on the pictures below. Left picture presents the first page of Declaration of Independence written by Thomas Jefferson in 1776 and the right one is the same page typed in InDesign using OpenType Jefferson font.
InDesign version you may also get in PDF.
