WOW! how stoked am I? I found out about this website called http://www.yourfonts.com/ and the best bit is its free! You just print out their template, fill in your handwriting, scan it into the computer, upload to their site and download the resulting font...Easy!
If anyone would like the GallimaufryUK font snag it here:
on the other hand I'll totally understand if you'd prefer your own, I mean that's all the fun isn't it!
