the emily handwriting font

I’ve been wanting to do this for quite some time and finally the opportunity presented itself :

I added in a few doodles and symbols because they make things fun.  If you aren’t quite sure how to add a symbol, here’s a mini lesson using Microsoft Word:





Not sure how to install a font on your computer? At the bottom of this post I show what to do {don’t worry … it is surprisingly simple}

    hi Emily – I’m a big fan and have just joined the archive and downloaded your fancy font….but I am obviously a newbie when it comes to actually USING it. It doesn’t show up in my Word font list. Any ideas on how I can use it on my Apple?
    thanks so much (and also for the free Grace and Peace notecards you gave all of us last week!)

    Hi…I bought some printed paper (LOVE IT) and made some backpack tags for school tomorrow. You’ve made it so easy, although I still need someone to cut in a straight line for me!
    Can’t get the Emily font symbols to work in Mac. I see others had the same issue. Not a huge deal, but if there’s something I can do, can you let me know.

    hi Emily,

    I was wondering what was the application that you used to create your own font? I found one before but now can’t seem to find it again to create my own font…

    your font is super cute.

    I was so excited to see your “emily” font! I remember telling some friends of mine who also follow your blog about your hand writing and how it should be a font haha! I can’t wait to use it!

    Hey Emily,

    Just purchased your font, and got email confirming subscription, but no attachement w/ font was in email. Can you resend please!

  11. Taylor H. June 4, 2011 at 10:42 pm #

    Having a hard time figuring out how to insert the symbols on Microsoft Word for Mac. Any suggestions?? Thanks!

  12. Tori June 4, 2011 at 11:16 am #

    LOVE it! I run a home-based monogramming company, and I can’t wait to use your font with my stitching software and see it stitched-out!

  13. Erin June 4, 2011 at 7:45 am #

    Wow! Just bought your font–thanks so much! It’s fabulous!

    Just bought! You have the BEST blog ever. I love all that you do!

  15. ELT June 4, 2011 at 2:06 am #

    Fun! How did you design the font and how much does it cost to create a font?

  17. Krystal Wight Armstrong June 3, 2011 at 9:59 pm #

    This is great, how fun! And thanks for doing that to share with all of us :) (I actually tried to handdraw a few words like you a few days ago). Did you do it through ‘Fonts for Peas’ or some other font design program? Is it a true type font (.ttf)?

    I totally plan on buying it before the weekend’s out (in the middle of moving now and husband has all our credit cards & stuff somewhere else right now).
    Was just curious if this is like any other font download, like say via dafont.com. One can still kern in photoshop & whatnot? I’d love to see the character pallet a little bigger too! Anyway, sorry about the long comment- this was an exciting post!
    PS- I especially love your pretty, loopy/swirly letters & symbols (M & A etc.)!

    I just purchased (under my husbands name) and downloaded/installed it within seconds! Super cute, great job! I am going to use this on signs for my daughters first birthday party next weekend :-) One of your beautiful signs would be a LOVELY addition to her party and room, crossing my fingers…

      Nope … feel free to use it however you wish {just don’t resell the font, please}
