Make Your Own Font
www.yourfonts.com has a cool tool to generate a font based on what you write down on a piece of paper. I recently became interested a little more in fonts after watching the movie Helvetica. Making your own font requires some specialized software and some patience if you don't want to do it through a website. The yourfonts is free and pretty fast & simple. I made one that is my handwriting. I'm not super happy with it...I need to retry while being more careful about how high up on the block I start/finish my letters (that will make sense if you try to do this yourself).
