Try Your Hand at Writing

February 3, 2012 / Fun & Favorites

The rise of keyboards and the corresponding fall of penmanship has been well-documented (via keyboard, of course). We’ve found a brilliant way to preserve what is sadly in danger of becoming a lost art.

And maybe this is a case of “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em,” but you’ve got to admit it’s the perfect mashup of tech and nib: Fontifier. Print out the template, write the alphabet by hand, and upload. It creates a font made from your handwriting–and it costs less than ten dollars. Now you’ll be able to type your notes and documents, save them on your computer, and print them out in a deceptively personalized way.

But do it quickly–handwriting’s a use-it-or-lose it skill, at least when it comes to neatness. So the sooner you turn your writing into a font, the less it will matter if you never write again.
