A Full Range Of Market-Leading Realistic Handwriting Fonts

We supply three types of handwriting font services:-

  • Handwriting fonts with variations (the Premium 'Ultra' Service) (Version 6 has twice as many variations as Version 5) which use our proprietory Scriptalizer™ handwriting software to add the variations. (Version differences)
  • Handwriting fonts without variations (the Standard Service)
  • Signature-only fonts (the SignaType Service)

The Premium 'Ultra' service requires our proprietory Scriptalizer™ software (a a realistic handwriting generator) to add the variations, which is available for free via our Web App, embedded in a Microsoft® Word® template, integrated with the Inkscape Bantam Tools Stroke Font Utility and NextDraw Merge extensions (plus legacy Hershey Advanced and AxiDraw merge extensions), as an API webservice, or an Application Embeddable DLL package.

With each of these services you can choose the following types of handwriting font:-

  • TrueType (TTF) handwriting fonts that work only with inkjet or laser printers
  • Single Line (SVG) handwriting fonts (also known as Open Contour fonts) that work with pen plotters such as the NextDraw or AxiDraw.

We have a range of 'pre-made' handwriting fonts, made from real handwriting, that are ready for immediate download, or you can choose to have your own handwriting made into a 'custom handwriting font'.

Introducing the Premium 'Ultra' Realistic Handwriting Font Service

Premium 'Ultra' ServiceOur best service. The Premium 'Ultra' Service produces ultra realistic handwriting fonts, using the Scriptalizer™ software for added realism. Suitable for both printed and cursive (joined up) handwriting and made from your natural handwriting. There's nothing else to compare on the market for quality or price!

View Example (PDF file)

Scriptalizer(TM) logoThe Premium 'Ultra' handwriting font service embeds over 100 (version 5) and 300 (version 6) additional characters in the font, which are accessed and replaced by our FREE Scriptalizer™ Software. (More variations are possible with TrueType Premium 'Ultra' multi-fonts or single line Premium 'Ultra' multi-fonts).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.

The Premium 'Ultra' Service is also available as a single line (open contour) font for use with pen plotters.

What our customers say:

Many thanks for the fonts - we have already integrated into our system and used the Scriptalizer as well. I must say its brilliant, and surpasses our expectations.
Well done on a great product, please keep it under wraps as I would prefer my competition do not know about it :-)
- Alan Wood (Australia) (Premium 'Ultra' PLUS Service)
This is absolutely wonderful. Thank-you so much. I suffer from a degenerative spinal disease so quite often I have problems holding a pen, but there are often times when a handwritten note or letter is more appropriate than an email or a word-processed letter. Now I will be able to do that without struggling. Cheers!!!
- EC (Northern Ireland) (Standard Service)
We have the single line fonts installed and loaded the beta release of the AxiDraw software that integrates the Scriptalizer. Amazing results!
- Megan Rikli (USA) (Premium 'Ultra' PLUS Service - Single Line Font)
...You guys do an amazing job! Takes a literal genius to create something like this, and more great minds to keep it going and up to date. Kudos to all of you!
