Font Editor Software:
*********************

FontStruct:
===========
Ever want to create your own font?
Try Fontstruct at https://w3n.us/fs
It’s free, easy and it’s fun.

FontStruct is a free online font building tool that I have used to make a few of my own fonts. Fontstruct is a free font editor available at which was the tool chosen to make this font - it’s fun, free, and easy to learn and use. You can even make your own version of this font with it, and there is a great little community of designers there that share with each other, though if you want, you may well keep to yourself and still use the font editor.

calligraphr:
============
calligraphr allows you to scan your own hand lettered fonts in small character numbers for free, or with a large character sets with a subscription model.

You simply select the glyphs you want to include, then download a template, fill it in by lettering the characters using your own design, then scan it back into the PC/Mac/Linux/etc... and the online tool will create a font from your lettered template.

FontForge:
==========
Another free font editor is a Linux based professional editor with support for most every modern font standard. Though it has been ported to other platforms, I have never been able to get it to run on Windows. It apparently runs great on Linux, Mac & Sun, and they are always working on the Windows version (I haven't tried to install it on Windows 10 and probably never will. I just installed Linux & FontForge on an old laptop and expect to be using it pretty heavily.

Fontlab Typography Suites:
==========================
If you would like to get yourself a decent font editor to create your own font(s) on your PC or Mac, I recommend Fontographer, although TypeTool might do the job, too. FontLab is the flagship typographic tool of the Fontlab company. However, do note that I do use Fontstruct online.

Glyphs:
=======
A Mac-only version of professional typography editors is Glyphs, which is also supported by FontStruct (allowing you to wireframe a design in FontStruct, export it, and then add the bezier curves you want in Glyphs).

https://w3n.us/glyphs


FontSelf:
=========
Finally, an extremely reasonable priced font editor is a plug-in for either of the subscription models of Illustrator or Photoshop (Creative Cloud versions, only) is called FontSelf that is in use creating many modern profesional fonts today.

Getting Started:
================
There are a lot of online resources to help you get started creating fonts such as typography guides & learning type design...

If you need help making sure your font name isn't already reserved as a font name by someone else (all font family names should be unique), a good start is:

-That should be enough to get you started right. ;)


Submit Your Font:
=================
Be sure to submit any font you might create or legally modify that we could use here. Any font that has a complete letterset (A-Z, a-z, 0-9 &+~!@#$%^&*()_=-`"':;<>?/|\[{}],.) that is freely distributable would be greatly apprectiated, especially if it is OK for commercial use. We also love fonts that can be used as web fonts. Be sure to use a unicode letterset when you save your work or the font simply won't display right here at Font-Journal. It's our most important requirement.


About Font-Journal:
-------------------
Font-Journal is a cataloged archive of freeware and shareware fonts that I maintain for my small business, start-up and freelancing clients. I try to collect PC truetype freeware fonts that can be used for commercial purposes, and shareware fonts that can be used for commercial purposes upon registration and/or payment of the shareware fee. I also try to collect freely distributable web fonts of the same variety. The end result is a pretty decent font repository, although I can only work on it in my spare time, which I have little of.

Submit to Google Fonts:
=======================
You can also submit your own font to Google Fonts. You can either use FontStruct to submit your finished SIL Open Font Licensed font which fulfills the required Google's required 215 basic glyphs (Google Font submission info is available on FontStruct), or you can submit it yourself. More info is available here, on how to submit your font to Google Fonts on GitHub:

https://w3n.us/addfont
(-I will update this Short Link at W3N.US if/when I find a better page on GitHub.com for this info.)


Font Cloud:
===========
Font Cloud is a great place to store your fonts online so that if you need them, you can get them wherever you are as long as you have internet web access. This is a big deal with designers, publishers, printers, or absolutely anyone who relies on a custom font for a logo, letterhead, headline, content, documents, website UI, and all those appropriate webfonts. If you are designing fonts yourself, this may well be a necessity for you, so you can always access your projects. You will get considerable free space just for signing up with Font Cloud, and there are all sorts of options to expand your storage limits.

https://w3n.us/fontcloud


Collecting Quality Fonts:
=========================
If you are interested in grabbing commercial fonts for your own work, I am often showcasing commercial fonts that are free for a limited time, and quality freeware fonts that are OK for commercial use, at one of my fonts groups on Google+ or Facebook:

https://w3n.us/f0nts Fonts community at Google+ Communities.
https://w3m.us/Fonts Fonts, Lettering & Typography group on LinkedIn.

And I have a blog where I often announce my latest font creations or showcase the fonts I like:

https://w3n.us/fm FontMaster blog on Google's Blogger.
