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:
- 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.
