Font Creation Info.

We promised information about our new set of fonts!!! We are so excited to get some more variety in our font selection. SO...here's what you need to know if you would like your handwriting made into a font. Get a piece of notebook paper and using a bold tipped marker, write the alphabet, numbers, and the punctuation you would like. It can be as little or as much punctuation as you'd like. We've made a sample so you can see how big your letters need to be. In order to make a good font, your lowercase letters need to be AT LEAST one line tall, capitals need to be at least 2 lines tall, numbers should be two lines tall as well.
Once you have written your alphabet, you will need to scan it in and e-mail it to us. Make sure you are scanning at 300dpi. Send it to us as an attachment along with what you would like your font to be called... "GG _______".

We haven't done any cursive fonts before, it's something that we'd like to play around with but can't guarantee we can do it!!!! If your handwriting is cursive, feel free to send it in and we will try our best to make it work!

These fonts will be free of charge with the understanding that they can be put on our website for others to download and use for personal, non-commercial use.

Well, there it is! We are so excited to get started! If you have any questions, PLEASE feel free to e-mail us! We look forward to getting LOTS and LOTS of fonts!!!!!


Happy Scrapping!

I wish I had good handwriting but unfortunately I don't. But Rory has surprisingly good hand writing for a boy. Maybe it would be fun to have him do it. I'll have to see if he has any time. You guys are amazing!

Rhonda just told me about this and I think it is such a great idea. I check your site out all the time and just wanted to tell you how amazingly talented you are! Thanks for sharing. I will try and meet the deadline and get my handwriting submitted. What fun to have my own writing in my little girls books!
