Create Custom Font Icons

Fonts can be saved in different file formats: OTF, TTF and SVG (and some more).

With Inkscape, you can create SVG fonts. These fonts can later be converted toanother font file format, and be used in a text editor or graphics program. Thereare also a few programs that support SVG fonts directly (Inkscape 0.92.x is notone of them. This is planned for version 1.0, though).

Hint

You can use the little ‘eye’ icons in the Layers dialog to hide the layers with the glyphs that you have already finished. To protect the completed glyph layers from accidental changes, use the ‘lock’ icons.

When you are done, save the file as an Inkscape SVG (this is Inkscape’s standard file format).

Although this functionality is meant for typographers, amateurs, too, can quicklyget a working result and test their work as they go.

When your font is finished, you can use a software like FontForge where you import your SVG font and can exportit into different formats to be able to use it with other software.

The typography template has just the right size for a single letter. It comes with a set of useful guides. On the right side, the letter ‘a’ has already been added to the SVG font.

How does our font generator work?

Our font generator works by taking normal text you input and converting it into a unique and fun font you can use. Here are the steps to complete this process:

  • Type your text into the font generator
  • Wait for the font generator to provide you with different styles
  • Choose the text style you like
  • Copy and paste into Instagram, Facebook, or other social media platforms

Different text styles resulting from the generator can include unique cursive, calligraphy, handwriting, and web script fonts. You can also choose to add different symbols and emojis as well.

Technically a font generator does not generate fonts. Instead, this type of text generator maps the inputted text to related, but ‘fancier’ symbols or characters that are part of the Unicode Standard.

What is Unicode?

Unicode is an internationally recognized standard for identifying the different characters we see on our computer screens.

Since computers only recognize zeros and ones (i.e. binary), each character is assigned a unique binary number. For example, the capital letter “A” has a Unicode character number of 65. A lowercase “a” has a Unicode character number of 97.

Unicode has over 137,000 characters consisting of your ‘normal’ characters, such as the text you’re reading right now, and the fancier characters you get from a font changer.

Before the establishment of the Unicode Standard, there were hundreds of different systems, known as character encodings, used to assign numbers to the characters. As you can imagine, this can make it extremely difficult for computers to share text and data with each other.

Today, Unicode has made it much easier to share text and characters amongst different operating systems, smart devices, search engines, and more.

Fonts, symbols, and emojis

So what exactly happens when you execute a font copy and paste from our text font generator? Is it actually a font, or is it a symbol?

As mentioned, the text generator fonts you see are not actually fonts. Essentially, they are symbols assigned with a Unicode value.

When you type in your text, our custom font generator then seeks out similar (but ‘fancier’) glyphs within the Unicode Standard. Technically, the ‘font’ you see is not truly a font, but rather a symbol.

That’s why you can’t perform a direct copy and paste of a Comic Sans text into, say an Instagram or a Facebook bio. Rather, fonts are a set of graphics that you can apply to Unicode glyphs. It is the website owner who dictates the specific font used on a particular site.

Emojis work the same way as symbols. They each have a unique Unicode number allowing you to perform a font generator copy and paste to whatever platform you wish.

How do I get the generated font?

Getting the generated font is easy with our online font generator. All you need to do is highlight the generated font. Then, copy and paste to whatever platform you wish.

Create Custom Font Icon

Most computers, processors, and devices will accept and be compatible with the generated ‘font.’ However, there can be some exceptions. For example, certain websites may not be able to support certain Unicode characters.

In these instances, you’ll see a symbol of a box instead of your fancy font. This box is the default whenever a browser cannot support a certain character.
