I stumbled on a blog post showing the steps to create your own font at scruss.com and gave it a shot.

It requires the following:

  • printer
  • scanner
  • FontForge
  • netpbm (I suppose you could also use GIMP)
  • Perl and the Perl Script from scruss.com’s websites
  • a little time to touchup the scan

Some minor things to note, I recommend using Gimp to clean up the PDF scan.

I may need to touch up my font sizing more after I become more comfortable with FontForge.

Have fun!
