Simply write down the alphabet on a piece of paper, scan or photograph it, and upload it to our webapp. The webinterface will allow you to adjust some font metrics (such as baseline and kerning) and Scribblefont will then generate a TrueType font file. Place this file in your "Fonts" folder and you can use your own handwriting as a digital typeface!
Dead-tree planners (‘agenda's’) are still in widespread use today. When you buy one in a brick-and-mortar store, it is mostly empty except for some pre-filled (usually Christian) holidays.

Simply specify the date range and types of information you want in it, and the webapp will generate a PDF file that you can print and bind at your local copyshop.
