Seriously .. so excited for this! One of the reasons I've been wanting an iPad is to download all the cool apps, including FontMaker to make a font with my handwriting. Now I have one less reason to get one! On myscriptfont.com, you print and fill out the template, scan it in per the instructions, and download your font! Super cool, right? And free!
The image above was created in Word using the font I made. I just used a regular gel ink pen (I didn't have any medium size felt tip pens) and it worked fine other than a couple of light areas on the U V W and w.
