Actors & Actresses' Handwriting Fonts

.ttf fonts?
In this page I'll add the classic stars' handwriting fonts (.ttf) I've released. They work in any software that loads fonts (Microsoft Office, Pages, Adobe Photoshop, etc). You can use them to bring the Classic Stars touch to your digital work, always respecting the...

terms of use
I don't want to sound annoying and serious, but please give these files a proper use and respect my work. That means, obviously, that you may not:
  • Sell or commercialize these fonts in any platform or claim them as your own.
  • Re-distribute these fonts.
  • Use them for any harmful, pornographic, or racial material or material that may be deemed harmful or offensive to another person (dead or alive).
If you're using these fonts in your site a link back to this page would be great. If you have any doubt send me an e-mail: kfercovic [at] gmail [dot] com.

download
Please notice that these fonts were made years ago, so they can behave differently on newer operator systems.

Click the banners below and you will be redirected to a Dropbox folder, containing:
  • the ttf. file (aka the font); 
  • 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
You can download all the files to the location you prefer or just the font.

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.

  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

  6. I love Ingrid's handwriting, but unfortunately the download link seemed to be lost somehow. I don't know if you're still running this blog. But, if you do, can you please upload the link again? Thank you so much!

    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!

    1. Hi, you have to open the Dropbox link, download the file ending in "ttf" and then installing the font on your computer.
