Using Android? Bored with the system font? Worry not, as we all know Android is known for amazing user-end customization, there is a way to turn your handwriting into font on your device. Yes, you read it right, your own handwriting. There are many reasons to why you may want to change your device font to your own handwriting. It may be because the current font does not complement the current theme or device you are using, or because you want to give your device a slight personal touch. To be honest, I prefer to use my handwriting as a font in my device to give it a more personal touch according to my customizations.
For your information, this works on rooted devices & non-rooted Samsung devices, Xiaomi devices & if you have any System font changing app. So, in any case, if you’re worried that it won’t work on your device; it will. If you have not rooted your Android device, jump on to our How to root any Android device easily thread. Also, if you want to use your handwriting as a font on your Windows system, then scroll down the last part of the article.
Make your Own Handwriting Font
First, I’d like to tell you the process to turn your handwriting into a font or in technical terms, a .ttf file. To achieve our goal we are going to use Calligraphr. Please follow the following steps properly to ensure nothing goes wrong and everything works as it is supposed to.
Step 1. Go to Calligraphr website.
Step 2. Select “Template” from the menu.
Step 3. Select the language from the left panel and download the template in PNG or PDF format.
Step 4. Print the downloaded template and fill it.
Step 5. Use a Black Pen or Marker to fill out the printed PDF or PNG.
Step 6. After filling it up, scan it or take a picture. Make sure the 4 markers on the borders are included in your Scan or Photo.
Step 7. Now, go back to the website and click “MY FONTS” from the Menu and Select “Upload Template”.
Step 8. In “Upload Template”, Click on “Select a file” and Upload the template you edited.
Step 9. It will take some time for results to appear. Click on “Add characters to your font” from bottom right of the dialogue box.
Step 10. Your handwriting is now uploaded on the website and you could go on and modify them or add other variants.
Step 11. Now check the results in the preview area and download the .ttf file.
How to use your handwriting as font on your device (Root)
Step 1. Transfer the downloaded .tff file in your device’s internal storage or SD card.
Step 2. Download the IFont App and open it. (Only works on rooted devices, do not follow this method if your device is non-rooted)
Step 3. Click on “My Font”. Click on ‘Click this‘ text.
Step 4. Navigate to your downloaded .tff file and select it. Click on ‘Set‘ and it will set your font.
That’s it! This is an easy process to set your own handwriting as a system font in your device. Now your device will have a personal touch of your own personal handwriting. If you want to add support for more characters and languages you can use Font Painter. You can follow the procedure for Font Painter from here. I hope users who have rooted their Android devices had no issues with this method.
As I already mentioned, non-rooted users do not need to get disappointed as this works on Samsung non-rooted devices, Xiaomi devices or if you have any System font changing app. Follow the steps below to use your handwriting as a font on your non-rooted devices.
