Thread: Handwriting after your pages are printed?

Hybrid View

  1. Handwriting after your pages are printed?

    Has anyone ever done their own handwriting after your pages are printed? I want to use my own handwriting and can't think of another way to do it. I am fine with doing it after they are printed I was just wondering if anyone else has done it and did you use a certain pen so that it would bleed?

    I have used an ultra fine sharpie on pages that are slick, but some pages have a slight texture to them (like a photo) and I haven't tried on that. I had my handwriting turned into a font for my pages. That might be something to consider.

    I have never personally done that, but it might just work The other option would be to get a font made from your handwriting...

  5. I made an entire book as a Father's day present. I left blank spaces so the kids could write answers to the questions. I used a Fine point Sharpie Permanent maker. It was perfect no smudge...even with my left handed son. It turned out awesome. Honestly I love that book more than any other book as I feel it captures the kids' perfectly.
    I've included a few links to the pages below so you get an idea.

    Another idea is to write out what you want for your journaling. Scan it and open it up into PS. Then put it directly onto your layout before printing.
    I did that here for this page along with their artwork.

    Hope that helps.

  6. Thank you for your ideas. I've thought about turning my handwriting into a font. Do you know how to do it? Is is hard?

  7. You could write your journalling on white paper, scan it and bring it in as a jpg, then use multiply as a blending mode to eliminate the white background. The downside here is that the journalling would not be editable once scanned....but could be replaced with a similarly produced text...

    I've gone through the Peas Fonts and found one similar enough to my half printed scrawl so that does me just fine.

    I'm not sure if she still does it but, Bailey (starlite9711) had an Etsy shop where she can make your handwriting into a font. You might contact her if you are interested.

    I have used my Wacom tablet to write on my pages. I use a hard edge brush set to 4 pixels and it works great. Here are a few of the pages.

    I've used my tablet a few times too, but I don't like it so I rarely use it! I've also had my handwritting turned into a font, but sadly, it doesn't really resemble my handwriting, so I never use it. I LOVE the idea that Doris suggested above! Best of luck with your decision!

    So many wonderful ideas! A couple more suggestions. American Crafts makes a series of pens called "slick writers" available in an assortment of colors and they are great for writing on top of slick surfaces. If you want a digital form of your handwriting and you have an ipad there is an app called iFontMaker and you can make endless versions of your handwriting with it.

    Julie, your handwriting looks great! I can never get mine to look good using my pen. I'll have to try it again with your settings.
