The funny thing is although I made a font of my handwriting:
And even in cursive:
It still doesn’t quite look real—what makes my handwriting look handwritten is all the inconsistencies. I don’t always make my L’s the same height. Especially now that I use the computer so much for writing, my handwriting is MUCH messier than the font. But the biggest problem is that my handwriting was difficult to read in blocks of text. I ended up making it large, bold, and double spaced. Still, I used it in at least three yearbooks.
Then I stumbled on this site: http://kevinandamanda.com/fonts/fontsforpeas/category/script-print-mix/
Hundreds of free handwriting fonts! You can submit your writing sample and she may make your font for free. I picked one I like—what I WISH my handwriting was, but still one that is plain enough to read in large blocks of text. My favorite is PeaJay.
