Make Your Own Fonts: Free Font Editors (Elsewhere on the Web)

The Mashable post I wrote recently reviews seven of the best free font editors out there. Some tools included in the post are FontStruct, FontForge and BitfontMaker. If you’d like to create your own custom fonts, one of the free font editors included in the post should fit your needs.

Here’s a short excerpt from the post:

Though there are plenty of fonts out there for you to choose from (and many are even free), you may have the desire to create your very own custom font. Perhaps you want to design your own unique font for your company’s logo, or you may have a specific font design in mind and, after looking at hundreds of fonts, you’ve concluded that you’d have to make your own lettering to get exactly what you want.

Here’s the link to the Mashable post:

Same here, never tried any of these things as well. Fonts are a delicate matter, takes some level of expertise and know-how in order to start thinking one can create his/her fonts.

It is an interesting post regarding own creation of fonts. But as Jack said, it would be more effective if one example is given.
