If you want to create your own font using your handwriting, do it today (23 January) for free at www.yourfonts.com.

You'll need to download the template, write your letters, scan it, save it, upload it, enter the special code, download the font file, install it, and Voilá!

Wouldn't it be funny if I didn't give you the special code?

But it's CPN2011FUN

I'm not sure what time zone the site is in, presumably the same as dpc's, so maybe there's two and a half hours left.

I'm glad some people enjoyed it. They had a free font day last year on Mother's Day (which I missed), so if it happens again, I'll let you all know. ;-Þ

A long while ago I was looking for a site that could make fonts from handwriting. There are a few, but they all require payment. Yourfonts was one - so I paid for one font because I wanted/needed it (though I was annoyed my punctuation marks didn't all come out<"¤">), and now they occasionally send an email. If you've opted in for their news update, you should get them too.

It's National Handwriting Day (I guess they should make that International...) on 23rd January again at www.yourfonts.com/. The code to use this year is CPN4NHD2012 to make your own fonts from your handwriting. I suggest downloading the forms now to get ready for the day.

My handwriting is AWFUL, so I doubt I'll bother, but thanks for sharing this, anyway.
I might go bat my eyelashes at ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' RayEthier, his handwriting is very pretty .. maybe he can do a special one just for me :-)

This is an example of what I did with my own font.
The Smugglers. I hope you don't have to be signed in to Google+ to see it, though.

It seems you do.

Ok. I'll post it to another site later.

Here, now I have a collection on my SmugPug site. AN example:
' . substr('//pug8.smugmug.com/Humor/Captionz/i-MCz8j85/0/Th/TheSmugglingTrousers-Th.jpg', strrpos('//pug8.smugmug.com/Humor/Captionz/i-MCz8j85/0/Th/TheSmugglingTrousers-Th.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Bump so that you can download the forms, fill 'em out and scan to create your own fonts before Monday. See coupon code below (or above).
01/21/2012 05:58:19 PM · #16
Just another bump, because I remember something that might be useful for some people: there's a space on the form where you can sign your name. Imagine having a font which includes your own signature, just by typing ^. You could print it on your own images (as long as they're not dpchallenge entries ;-Þ).
yourfonts CPN4NHD2012. Download the form now, write on it, scan it, then submit it then submit it on 23 January.
01/23/2012 04:36:56 AM · #17
Bump again. The coupon code is now working, I just tried it. It's groovy having my own font :-)

I've done mine. Ugly as sin, but mine :-)
01/23/2012 09:07:58 PM · #19
Excellent. My handwriting is terrible, especially when seen on a computer, but it's still cool :)
01/23/2012 10:31:28 PM · #20
The site is taking forever to open, still the 23rd here!

Just now it says there are too many jobs in the queue to take any more, and to try again later ...

It looks like you can sign up for their newsletter and get another opportunity for a freebie later if it doesn't work at this time.
01/23/2012 10:50:03 PM · #22
Finally got in, just d/l the forms
01/23/2012 11:48:28 PM · #23
For the life of me, I can't remember how to do a capital I, the Australian way, pre 1985. Guess I'll have to do my own version. :-)
01/23/2012 11:54:50 PM · #24
I think their site may have crashed ... I kept reloading the "Upload" page and watched the queue whittle down to 11, then it suddenly jumped back to 60, and then to 151, and I haven't been able to get the page to reload fully since.
05/11/2012 09:02:42 AM · #25
Well, if you missed it last time, there's a chance for Mother's Day. Start from here, with the code being CPN4MOM2012 and it's available until 11.59PM, 13 May.
