Make a font of your own handwriting … free!

Picked this little goody up from UneasySilence.com. FontCapture.com is a website that will convert a scanned image of your handwriting into a font that you can use. I've seen commercial services that do this as long ago at the early 90s and there may be other free services that do this but this is the first one that's come to my attention. Print out a template, fill it in, scan it in PNG or GIF format and upload it to their website. They'll convert it and you can download your new font. This also works if you're a Mac user. If you're a LInux user, you'll have to use one of the Linux tools to convert Windows fonts to X11 format.
