Handwriting Fonts

By on Jul 23, 2009

In this age of e-mail, handwritten notes can make a big impact. Think about it: when was the last time you received a handwritten note? vLetter is a company that will reproduce your own handwriting as a font that you can use on your computer. This allows you to use the speed of typing to create a handwritten look.

The company offers several products. For $150, vLetter Pro will create your own handwriting and signature into a font that allows for completely connected cursive writing. vLetter Print ($70) is a simple printed font that is made from your own handwriting. And vLetter Sig ($30) creates your signature as a font. With your signature as a font, you can sign documents and checks by simply typing your name and choosing the font to display it. This allows you to choose any font size and color for your signature.

The company also offers handwriting fonts as Ready-Made Styles. “Declare” is a font made from the handwriting in the final copy of the Declaration of Independence. This font is a formal calligraphic style that includes an old-fashioned tall “s” character. “Gwashing” is a font made from George Washington’s handwriting, taken from archives of his actual correspondence. This less formal style also includes the old-fashioned tall “s” character in combination with a small “s.”
