DIY Font (+ free download)

when i was a kid, my little entrepreneurial brain had the brilliant idea of selling everyone  a computer font of their own handwriting on CD-ROM.  well, i never capitalized on it, and now the days of discs are long gone, so i guess i missed that boat!  

BUT, there are now a couple apps that allow you to do this, so i had to share!  it's such a fun idea--you can create a font of your own penmanship, or any other font you'd like!  i always think of using it to create custom invitations or party paper goods to coordinate with your event theme.

the app i used is iFontMaker for iPad, which is $6.99 in the app store.  i don't normally buy apps, but i think fulfilling a childhood dream was worth the six bucks.  iFontMaker is fairly user friendly, and there's a quick video tutorial that is very helpful.  

and, i used a Bamboo Solo Stylus Pen to do the writing.

also, who doesn't love free stuff?  i created a font that you can download for FREE on the 2ttf website.  it's called Double Tap, and you can DOWNLOAD it HERE (or, enter http://2ttf.com/P5aDPE1B in your browser URL if that doesn't work).  

if you have any other font commissions, i LOVE playing around with the app, so i'm happy to try my hand at a custom one for you!   that is, if you don't spring for the app yourself...
