Chalk fonts are by far the most common type of fonts you will come across when browsing through a website. Here is a simple chalk font generator that you can use to make your own fonts.
– Place all the images that you want to use into the blank space in the first box, as the images need to be placed on their own lines. – Select the font and design that you want to use, then click ‘Generate’. – If you are using a form or pop up a form, select a text box and go to the text box with the ‘Generate’ button. You will then have a new form ready to use on your website!
– Choose what font style you want and save it as a .otf file so that you can convert it to a .otf font later. It is a good idea to use a customised version if possible as there are many different types of fonts to choose from, but using a regular one may result in a lot of unwanted letters added to your design.
– Select a font size and font style, such as bold and italic and save it as a .ttf file. For simplicity, you can use ‘Regular’ for a small size, but if you are going to use it on a larger screen you might want to choose a different font.
– If you are going to use a customised version of a font you can create a preset in an image editing software such as Photoshop, or another similar program, and edit it from there. This way you can save it as a .ttf file, rather than having to take a number of screenshots to get the exact effect you want.
– Copy the .ttf file you have created and copy it onto your website. Alternatively you can add a reference to your font in your html code by inserting a div element containing the same font in the same style as the copy. You can add the CSS code for your font after the code for the word ‘‘.
– Now that you have your font, simply change any of the elements in your website, such as text boxes or navigation links, so that they contain your font. You will need to test it on your site first before you put any actual images into your website so that you do not inadvertently break your original design. Once you have it working, try adding a small bit of your hand written text to each of the pages.
– When you have finished creating your fonts, you will find that they make a really nice alternative to ordinary images when making a website. They are very simple to create and are a great way to add a little bit of your own personality to a boring website. The fact that they are vector-based means that it is very easy to integrate them into your layout and you can have a very professional looking site without having to do much of the work yourself.
There are many websites that offer free fonts such as this one and many of them also offer a downloadable version. These are not as advanced as the simple chalk font generator and may need some minor adjustments to make it work, but they will often contain more advanced features such as mixing and matching different fonts together, so they should provide a nice extra touch for your site.
The decision about whether or not to use a free font depends on what kind of information you want to include in your website. If you are creating something that is very simple, then the free fonts may not be worth using, but if you want to keep the site simple, then a free font is probably a good idea.
