Make your own Handwriting font!

Something which I love to use in my work is handdrawn typography. I also especially like using my handwriting to make labels and product names - as you can see on the Tea & Biscuit badge pack below.

Normally I would write the word that I would like to have on a scrap of paper, scan it in, trace it and then convert it in illustrator.  However just recently I've discovered that I can now create an entire font with my handwriting really easily and cheaply and it works so well! Here is an example of the font I've created- just click on the image to be taken to the yourfonts site- amazingly it took me less than 15 minutes to create mine.
