About Christina @ Intimate Weddings

hand lettering font

The handwritten note is dead. Paved over by pixels. Bludgeoned by bytes. It’s been gone for years. Thrown to the curb like the things found at the back of closets during spring cleaning. Or is it?

According to The NY Times , handwritten typeface is back with a vengeance. Apparently, the word of sleek graphics have left us longing for the DIY approach to lettering. We’ve all seen this trend in the world of weddings too, where calligraphy is all the rage. Heck, you can even turn your own handwriting into a font.

You can turn your own handwriting into a font just like I did! Go to Your Fonts and print out the PDF. Simply fill in the letters of the alphabet, scan, upload, install and voila! I would love to do this to my architect sister-in-law’s handwriting, or my mother’s lovely handwriting.

Just make sure you take your time and stay within the lines when you create your alphabet. Costs $9.95 to use this service.

That said, I can’t remember the last time I sat down to write (not type) a letter to a loved one? Can you? Maybe it’s time to whip out the stationery and get nostalgic. That is, if I remember how to write. :grin:

The idea of writing your wedding invites tells a lot of personalization to it. But I am afraid I won’t be able to hand write my invites because I have a terrible handwriting.
