Font Creation

Recommended Posts

I have a pdf of a font that I want to create into an actual font that I can type out rather than copying and pasting each individual letter every time. FWIW, the font in question is a custom private entity and not downloadable anywhere, but I will only be using for personal private use for fantasy football leagues that I am in. Any advice on how to proceed would be great. I've already tried FontForge but that seems to be more in depth than I need it to be since I already have the letters individually created.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

In fontforge, there is an option to import either an svg or eps file so you don't have to recreate all the letters. Other than that, I know that there are some paid alternatives but I mean, who wants to do that, right?

I messed around with FontForge for a bit. Might have to dig into it more.

 

Thanks

I use a free program called BirdFont. It can be a little hard to use at first but you can import SVGs or straight up copy and paste between Illustrator and it. I've made quite a few fonts with it now and it works really well.
