Even in this digital age of email (or maybe especially because of email), receiving a hand-addressed handwritten letter in the mail is a heartwarming experience. Thank you notes really say "thank you" when you take the time and hard work to write them out and personalize them. But you can make the workload a whole lot easier if you take a second to create a font from your handwriting at Fontifer. Can you say "mail merge?"

Catch up with everyone in your contacts application the "old-fashioned" way when you send out news, invites and thank you notes in your own "handwriting." It's easy once you've created a font from your handwriting at Fontifer. We won't tell if you don't.

With a process that's simple (basically 4 Steps) and a price that's affordable ($9), we might just start typing on our sticky notes:

  1. Print out the template at Fontifer.com.
  2. Use a decently-thick black felt-tip pen to fill in each box with the letter, number or symbol each square asks for. Guides on the template can help keep your baseline or x-height consistent.
  3. Scan the entire template and upload it to Fontifer. Follow Fontifer's guidelines for file type, size and resolutions. If you want, you can tweak the font a little in photoshop before you upload!
  4. You're almost done! Just preview your font. If everything looks legit, name your font, pay with a credit card or PayPal, and download!


If you're ready to get started, head over to Fontifer!
