Are you ready for Talk Like a Pirate Day? It’s September 19th (same date every year), so it’s coming up fast. I recently stumbled across some really nice pirate fonts online. This one is called Windlass, for example:
Hat-tip to KPAO! which is a fun blog.
Every time I start looking at fonts, I always surface 3-4 hours later realizing that I would have a serious font problem once I started. For example, did you know that you can make a font online for free? Watch the screencast to learn more.
Or you can make a font out of your handwriting for free. You print out a page of letters, write each letter in the predefined box, scan the page, and upload it. According to this page you can use a coupon code of “YourFont2008” to make sure that it’s free. I’ve printed out the pages but haven’t written/scanned my handwriting yet.
Fun stuff, but it’s amazing how you can start with one website with free fonts and quickly burn an entire afternoon. 🙂
