You can download the fonts for free, but you can donate whatever you want to support my work. Any amount is welcome, you will help me to keep improving the released fonts and of course, to create new ones. Use the Paypal donate button below. Thank you :)




download
To download each file, click the banners below. An automatic download should start and you should get a .rar file containing:
  • the ttf. file; 
  • the 'poster' of the font; 
  • the terms of use 
  • a picture sample with the comparison of the font being used in Microsoft Word and an original handwritten document
Please notice that handwriting may change depending if the writer is in a rush, is older, or whatever; what I did was to pick the characters shapes the stars used most of the time.

Scroll down to check the instructions to install the font...

  1. I would really love it if you made a font from James Deans handwriting. I have lately been a little obsessed... A guide on how you did this would also be helpful. This is such a great idea!

    Have a nice day! /Theo

    1. Hi Alison, I no longer update this blog, but I do read the comments. About the font, I haven't found the original file in my old folders, and I can't access the upload either. I'll keep looking anyway, and reply to this comment if I have any luck. Thanks for your interest!
