Fontifier

Fontifier is a 9USD handwriting font service (was free for its first month only) by David Johnson-Davies, who runs Human-Computer Interface Ltd in Cambridge, UK. One submits a GIF-format scan of a properly filled out template. Fontifier then analyzes a sample of each letter of the GIF version of the template, and constructs a character outline. The result is a standard truetype font. Comments at Typographica. Heinrich Lipschka reports that it made a grunge font from Noga. It sure looks like the low dpi requested (75 to 100) leads to jaggies and a severe loss of information. List of fonts made with this software. Fontifier tips. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Its designer, the Utrecht, The Netherlands-based Erwin Denissen, writes: As an independent software vendor, Erwin Denissen strives to continue developing new and innovative products for the world-wide typography market. Right now High-Logic has three products, a font editor, a font manager and a font generator. In March 2008 Erwin Denissen acquired MyTools.com, including 8 products. In July 2008 yourfonts.com was launched as an online font generation service. More fonts-related utilities are expected soon.

Some time in 2009, Yourfonts become commercial, changing between 9.95 and 14.95 US dollars per font. At the same time, they embarked on a reseller program in which others can use their font generation engine for a fee. Resellers include

Others, such as FontBay, have the same set-up as most resellers. Most of these services charge about 14.95 US dollars per font.
