    OK hello everyone. I have gotten into designing fonts. First off let me tell you it is a whole new world, a hard one at that. I have finished my first font. I call it:

    SD Handwriting- (The SD is for Sogol Designs)

    I am posting a screen shot of it here. Please give me some feed back. Oh yeah watch out because I am gonna start designing some ding bats, but one step at a time. :)

    P.S. The font is suppose to be my handwriting, but my handwriting looks allot nicer on paper. LOL............

    Good Job! So are you going to offer your fonts to the public?

    OK here is a wood sign dingbat that I designed today. I also have a sign made with the dingbats. I used the dingbat font in TLC and this is what I came up with. TLC and a dingbat and I think it turned out pretty good.

    OK here is my first font that I am posting for everyone to use. Please use it and let me know if you run into any problems with it. I need feedback on it, Please......

    I do not know if this one has been designed or not but here it is anyways. (If you find this font somewhere and it looks exactly the same please let me know so I can remove it)

    I hope everyone can use it. Right now it is only for Windows PC's, sorry mac users. One thing at a time. :)

    That's pretty cool! I love the eCover Creator Boxes, and I will buy a copy once things are ironed out. It really makes everything look nice..:Painting:

    Yes I completely agree D-rat. I love it. It makes displaying items allot nicer. I plan on a complete font collection, and I will make a 3D Cd for the display of the collection.

    As far as waiting till it is ironed out, I have not had any issues with it since I have used it. Running pretty nice.
