Handwriting Font


See What You Can Do with Realistic Handwriting


People find it hard to ignore a handwritten note sent to them. Anything in a mail pile or in a letter that remotely looks handwritten immediately demands attention. If the handwriting looks real, the recipient feels compelled to read. The more realistic-looking the handwriting, the more instinct and curiosity demand it be read.

Unfortunately, handwriting fonts don't look real. Personally handwriting hundreds or thousands of notes is out of the question. There are services that produce actual handwritten notes, but they are very expensive.  Add in the challenge of using varying text (as in variable data printing to personalize messages) and handwritten notes become impractical if not impossible - until now.



We have developed what we call a "font-app" to produce computer-generated printing that looks very much like human handwriting. See for yourself how difficult it is to determine that print generated by the font-app isn't real handwriting.

Compare the following two postcards:


























It's easy to see which one is a font but can you find a flaw in the other that indicates it's not actually handwritten? The human brain is very adept at detecting fake handwriting. Read more about what takes to make handwriting fonts look real.

Data-Driven Is the Key


While the font-app is very good at imitating real handwriting, anyone can modify some handwriting font text one time to make it look like real. It might be tedious and time-consuming, but it's entirely possible.

What makes the font-app so special and unique is it's application with variable data (VDP). This means whatever personalization is in a mailing list or data can be replicated on your digital press to look like real handwriting. The mailing address and "Mary" in the sample above are common examples of using variable data to directly generate handwritten text using the font-app.

With the font-app, you can be delivering addressed envelopes and all sorts of notes that look handwritten at a fraction of the price of the alternatives.
