Script Font Generator
A script font is lettering that mimics cursive handwriting. It is similar to calligraphy but it is not written with a flat edge tool like calligraphy is. Therefore, you don’t see drastic changes in the width of the lines like you do with calligraphy. Our free font script font generator lets you can choose different script fonts such as formal script fonts or casual script fonts. The formal fonts are fancier and have many curls and flourishes that extend from the serif. The casual fonts are less elaborate and resemble pretty handwriting that flows beautifully.
How should you use spacing?
Our free online calligraphy font generator offers many different lettering fonts, script fonts, brush lettering and other fonts that you can use to write anything. You can make changes to the font, font color, font spacing, line spacing, etc. Letter spacing is very important for good lettering design. The white space is defined by the outside edges of adjacent letters and the top and bottom guidelines. All areas of white space between all letters of a word should be visually equal (even though they might not actually be equal). If you write more than one line of text then drag the second text box around until you find the ideal spacing.
History of Calligraphy
Where did the alphabet originate?
It Is believed that ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics were the distant ancestors of today’s alphabet. Egyptian hieroglyphics were a pictographic system of communicating information in terms of visual symbolism. It later evolved into a written abstract form called hieratic script. These symbols grew over time and were modified by many nations such as the Greeks. The Romans modified the Greek alphabet to suit their needs and the Latin Roman alphabet was created as a result.
What is calligraphy?
All beautiful writing can be considered as calligraphy. It is written with a flat or straight edge pen and water-soluble writing ink or drawing ink. You can use a pointed spring pen, a fountain pen with a flat nib or a felt nib pen. When lettering by hand, letters are carefully constructed with pencil, corrected, rendered in ink, and retouched with white paint if necessary.
Lettering written with a brush exhibits the characteristics of the brush. The pointed watercolor brush is held so that the side of the brush is used. The more pressure you apply, the wider the stroke. The flat-edge brush requires much turning and manipulation to form the letters and is more difficult to handle.
