How to backup your handwriting font

Once you have received your handwriting font it is important to save a copy of it in a folder other than the fonts folder.

If you make regular backups (which you should do if you have any data on your hard disk that you cannot afford to lose) you should ensure that you place a copy of your font in a directory that will be included in your backup.

We recommend that you employ a backup strategy to protect your data in the event of hard disk failure.

We will only retain your font for a guaranteed 30 days from the date we produce it. After that, we may not be able to provide you with a copy of your font should you lose it (unless you've given permission for it to be used in the 'Font Vault').

As explained in the help section 'Using Your Font In E-Mail Messages', you cannot easily use your font in e-mail messages. You must ensure that the recipient of the message has your font installed for them to be able to see it.

Alternatively, you can use a free Cloud hosting service such as Microsoft OneDrive or Dropbox to host your font file(s). You can then point people to a link where they can download your font file using a simple text message at the bottom of your e-mail.

For example:

This message is written in my own handwriting!
To see the message in my handwriting you will first need to install the font.
To download my font, and find out how turn your own handwriting into a TrueType Font, go to http:/ - Link to font file -
