Yay me! I played around with Illustrator and Scanahand today and came up with a font set that I call Messy Paintstrokes. It is far from perfect but it was really much easier than one might think. I also found a great online site called YourFonts that looks like it is based on the same idea as Scanahand and is FREE. You can upload a template of your handwriting and the software creates a font of your handwriting. I haven't tried it so I don't know how well it works but if any of you have tried it I would love to hear what you think of it! Please note, this is a font, not an alpha, and you install it to use in your word processing, photo editing, software. We are off to St. Louis tomorrow for the MVC Basketball Tournament but I'll have the laptop for the long 3 hour ride down so maybe I will come up with something else to post this weekend. We will be pretty busy so keep your fingers crossed!
