For those of us old enough to remember the change from dot matrix printers to laser printers with WYSIWYG fonts, a single adage still applies. You can never have too many fonts. Fonts can be elements of graphic design. Text fonts can be the perfect compliment to enhanced readability. And, fonts can even be designed to look like real handwriting.
In keeping with my mantra of ‘you can never have too many fonts‘ I latched onto an inexpensive package of fonts appropriately titled Handwriting Fonts (from the Mac App Store). The package of 12 distinctive handwriting fonts gets the price down to just over 16-cents each. And, indeed, they look like real handwriting (some more so than others).
Here’s a sample.
Some of the fonts in the package, such as Charlotte, look familiar and yet much like actual handwriting, while the Willegha fonts look like the handwriting from that obnoxious girl in the 5th grade who made everyone else’s cursive look like chimpanzee scribbles.
All the fonts in the package are licensed for both personal and commercial use and work just as other fonts work on your Mac.
Why Handwriting Fonts? Because you can never have too many fonts.
