How To Turn Your Handwriting Into A Font

Add the ultimate personal touch to any document: turn your handwriting into a font and use that. There’s a lot of creative potential here, and it’s a lot easier to do than you’d think thanks to MyScriptFont. Friends don’t let friends use Comic Sans. It’s just a bad idea. If you want a font that looks handwritten, don’t mess around: create a custom font using your own handwriting and use that.

How To Get Mac & Windows Fonts in Ubuntu [Linux]

Whenever you’re happily setting up your new Ubuntu system, one of the things you’ll probably think about the least is getting the correct fonts installed. If you’re a bit confused about why I mentioned fonts, it’s because most distributions (or at least those who’d like to remain legal) only use free, or “libre”, fonts. While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with using these fonts, there will most likely be multiple cases where you’ll be required to have certain fonts.

5 Typography Resources To Help With Your Designs

We all know that fonts are important, right? I mean, when there’s a website bashing Comic Sans exclusively, we know it’s obviously important enough for someone to care about font usage. However, what makes a good font? What goes into properly using a font? These are the questions that bother me when I’m trying to work on something that involves any element of design. Fortunately, I’ve found a few websites to consult when preparing to use fonts.

How To Make Text Easier To Read In Windows

Most of us spend hours reading on the computer every day, but our computers probably aren’t optimized for reading. The text on our monitors may not be sharp enough or may be too small, especially if we have high-resolution monitors. Websites usually aren’t optimized for reading long-form articles either – they’re cluttered with too many navigation elements, flashing advertisements, and often use text that’s too small.

Free Font Friday: Comic Sans, You Are Not Alone (With A Bonus Video!)

Comic Sans is one of the most notoriously abused typefaces, but it’s been taking it like a champ, and just keeps on being its cheery, quirky self. Also, it’s not the only comic font around – just the most famous one. So I’ve decided to dedicate this month’s Free Font Friday to Comic Sans.
