A part of the real estate industry that is time tested is the handwritten note, but many people never end up writing those notes of gratitude that they intended to either because they’re busy prospecting, have horrible handwriting or have moved to a completely digital life.
In steps PilotHandwriting.com which allows you to print a piece of paper, write out the alphabet in your handwriting (or your assistant’s or wife’s if you have horrific child handwriting), take a picture with your webcam, digital camera or scanner, and upload to PilotHandwriting. In two minutes, you have created a font with your own handwriting!
In the video demonstration at the end of this post, you’ll see how simple it is and that the service allows you to save more than one handwriting which is good for OCD people like me who like cursive for some occasions and all caps for others.
The only problem that I have with the service is that it wants to send emails from their server which means each note ends with a picture of a big pen and directs other people to use the service. I don’t like ads in emails I send to people. My workaround? I intend on uploading my font, creating the letter, previewing it, and instead of hitting send taking a screenshot and embedding in an email (rather than a separate attachment).
There are several ways to do this and there are even services like Fontifier that lets you create a handwriting font with a scanner, then buy it for $9 and own it forever with no ads.
What do YOU plan on doing with a font made from your very own legitimate handwriting?
