Single Line Handwriting Fonts – Video & Development News

Take a look at our new video showing our single line handwriting fonts in action!

As you may be aware, we temporarily took our single line handwriting fonts off the market. This was whilst we worked with Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories, makers of the AxiDraw pen plotter, to further develop the usability of our fonts with the AxiDraw, and also ensure compatibility with other pen plotters.

If you own an AxiDraw pen plotter then you can now contact
Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories for the latest version of the Hershey advanced Inkscape extension. This has been updated to allow the use of custom single line handwriting fonts.

When you purchase a single line handwriting font from Quantum Enterprises you will receive three files:-

  • A ‘standard’ closed contour True Type version of the font
  • An open contour True Type version of the font for use with pen plotters and software which is compatible
  • An SVG version of the font suitable for use with the AxiDraw

You can choose from over 40 pre-made single line handwriting fonts at
https://www.quantumenterprises.co.uk/handwriting-fonts/single-line-handwriting-fonts.htm or order your own custom made handwriting font and select to have it converted to single line.

Whichever you choose, you will have access to the most realistic single line handwriting fonts on the market.

Try the Latest THREE New Premium ‘Ultra’ Handwriting Fonts

We’ve added three more Premium ‘Ultra’ realistic handwriting fonts to the Scriptalizer – our unique handwriting font enhancement software that makes really good handwriting fonts look ultra realistic. You can try all three fonts now for free in our web-based, Scriptalizer handwriting font software.

PremiumUltra43 is a slightly quirky printed style handwriting font, with a very slight leftward slant, whilst PremiumUltra44 is an slightly sloppy cursive handwriting font. Finally, PremiumUltra45 is another cursive font, with relatively long connecting strokes.

The Premium ‘Ultra’ handwriting font service embeds over 100 additional characters in the font, which are accessed and replaced by our FREE Scriptalizer Software. The software replaces the ‘standard’ characters with alternatives on a semi-random basis. The replacements include individual letters, letter pairs, starting letters, ending letters and starting and ending letter strokes. This adds another level of naturalness to your handwriting font.

The Premium ‘Ultra’ service is associated with a unique configuration file which encodes certain aspects of your handwriting style. This gives the fonts the most realistic and natural look you could imagine!

The fonts are of an exceptionally high quality, because the connections of each letter to the next have individually been worked with to produce a truly accurate reproduction of the original handwriting.

The Premium ‘Ultra’ Service is required to get the best results for cursive (joined up) handwriting, but also significantly improves the realism of printed handwriting styles.

Go to http://www.scriptalizer.co.uk/scriptalizer.aspx  to try these three new fonts now for free. (Select PremiumUltra43, 44 or 45 from the drop down font list).

Available to purchase for just £9.95 each for both personal and commercial use at http://www.quantumenterprises.co.uk/handwriting-fonts/example_premult.htm

Another Single Line Realistic Handwriting Font Has Been Created – PremiumUltra37SL

We’ve converted another of our ultra realistic Premium ‘Ultra’ handwriting fonts into a single line font (also known as single stroke and open contour fonts) for use with pen plotters and other CNC equipment.

You can now purchase PremiumUltra37SL, which uses the free Scriptalizer™ software to enhance it, as a single-line font for use with pen plotters (such as the Axidraw) and other CNC equipment.

This means that we now have two pre-converted single line handwriting fonts, with over 40 other handwriting fonts which can be converted to order.

A brief explanation of single line fonts

AxiDraw

For those people looking for the next level of handwriting font realism there are pen plotters. These machines, for example the AxiDraw(pictured), use real pens to mechanically create handwriting from computerised text. This adds additional realism through changes in ink density and the fact that the handwriting is actually written rather than printed. Unfortunately, standard True Type fonts are unsuitable for such equipment. This is because standard True Type fonts describe an outline for each character in the font, rather then an actual pen stroke, as per the example below.

Example of a closed outline font

As you can see in the example above, a standard True Type font is a ‘closed contour’ font and this always produces an outline when sent to a pen plotter or other CNC machine. Every line has to describe a shape and no line can be open ended.

However, there is a way to convert standard True Type fonts into ‘open contour’ (also known as single line or single stroke) fonts so that the pen only makes a single stroke per line, rather than an outline. The example below is the same font that has been converted to a single line font and written using a pen plotter.

Example of a single line font

This produces the most realistic handwriting effect, with changes in ink density and other ways that pen ink interacts with the paper. Combined with our Premium ‘Ultra’ handwriting fonts with the Scriptalizer™ software, you can now create realistic handwritten documents that were never actually written by a human hand!

Purchasing and installing our single line Premium ‘Ultra’ fonts allows you to copy and paste them from the Scriptalizer™ into any application that uses True Type fonts and is compatible with your pen plotter. For example, the AxiDraw uses Inkscape to output fonts.

PLEASE NOTE: We are still in the process of converting our 40 plus Premium ‘Ultra’ handwriting fonts into single-line fonts. This means that not all fonts are available for immediate download, but all are available to buy. Most fonts, when ordered, will initiate a conversion to the single line format.

“…its really helped our work be more effective and personal for our donors.”

Quantum Enterprises produces the most realistic handwriting fonts on the market. It’s not only the huge attention to detail that sets our fonts apart, it’s the addition of our proprietary Scriptalizer™ software that adds further variation to the font and makes the results more realistic than ever.

Our handwriting fonts are useful for many applications, from marketing to personal letters, for doctors, estate agents, politicians, and for those who cannot comfortably or legibly write any longer.
Charitable organisations also use our fonts, and here is an example of a comment from one of our recent happy customers:-

Thank you very much for this. It’s amazing how you do this, its looks so authentic and very useful for the type of work we do. A few of my colleagues have used your service now and its really helped our work be more effective and personal for our donors. It’s great.
