This service only contains one verson of each letter. If you are looking for our font service that uses character substitution to add an additional element of variation to the font then you need to go to our Premium 'Ultra' Service.

What makes our Standard Service different from others on the market?

Example of the SPACEanchor strokesBy careful examination of your writing style, and the use of our unique SPACEanchor system which allows you to manually add additional starting strokes to words if you need them, we can reproduce your handwriting so that it looks extremely similar to your actual script.

We do this by asking you to write some key words in your natural handwriting.

We also use over 20 years of Graphonomy (handwriting analysis) experience to assist in ensuring that your unique handwriting style is re-created.


Usual Limitations of Basic, TrueType Handwriting Fonts

There are always certain limitations when re-creating handwriting using fonts. Only one version of each letter can be used in a font, even though individual letters will differ during normal handwriting. The shape and joining strokes of a letter are dependent on the letter which came before it, and the letter which comes after. If you use our Standard Service, you have to accept these limitations and understand that your handwriting font will never look EXACTLY like your actual handwriting. If this isn't good enough for you, you may wish to find out more about our Premium 'Ultra' Service, which overcomes many of these limitations by adding more than 100 characters to the font which are accessible by our unique Scriptalizer ™ software provided as part of the service.

The Standard PLUS Service

If you have a cursive handwriting style, which includes cursive capital letters, you may wish to take advantage of our Standard PLUS Service.

When we create your handwriting font we will select the capital letters used at the beginning of words, so if you use cursive handwriting these capital letters will often join to the following letter.

However, if you want to produce entire words or sentences in capitals, the cursive capitals you use at the beginning of words don't always work well.

After we have produced your font we will ask you if you want to add the Standard PLUS Service, where will use the printed capitals that you provide to produce a SECOND font, that will allow you to produce more acceptable printed handwriting, in capitals, when you need it.
