Do you enjoy making craft projects? Are you concerned about using someone else’s font in the products that you are selling? Getting caught in a copyright entanglement can be scary. I enjoy making party favors and I try using my personalized fonts as much as possible to avoid these pitfalls. This tutorial will teach you how to create your font using IFontMaker.
Here is what you will need:
Create Your Font With IFontMaker:
Here are the steps to add your customized font to your iPad.
- Go to the Apple Store.
- Download and open iFontMaker.
- Within iFontMaker, click on the “New” button that is in the upper left-hand corner of the screen.
- The bottom slider gives you the option of setting your pencil stroke size.
- The “T” in the bottom left corner lets you chose an existing system font. This is a great sizing and shaping guideline.
- Start drawing your fonts.
- The bottom right and left arrow buttons allow you to move back and forth between fonts.
- After you have finished drawing all of your fonts, click on the “Share” button that is in the upper left-hand corner of the screen.
- Choose “Configure & Build”.
- In the “Title” box, name your font.
- In the “Author” box, put your name.
- Under the “Privacy” section, I have chosen to keep my font private. If you want to make your fonts public, that is completely up to you.
- When ready, click “Build Online”.
- Select “Install iOS Font”
- Hit “Allow”
- Click “Close”
- Now go to your iPad or iPhone settings
- Click “Profile Download”
- Press “Install” 3 times.
- Click “Done”
- Go to your iPad or iPhone settings.
- Click “General”
- Choose “Fonts”
Your new font will be showing with all of your system fonts.
