Pilot Handwriting - The Last Letter You'll Ever Write

YouTube Preview Image

In an effort to cling to the last fraying threads of traditional communication, Pilot has launched an initiative to immortalize your handwriting, that your future emails might glow with all the radiant personality of your sloppy chicken scratch. Personally, I’m a Verdana man. But this is still cool.

Simply print out the template, get funky, and snap a picture when you’re done. The app will take care of the rest, creating a font based on your handwriting. If you can call it handwriting.

It’s all sort of touching, really – and sad, when you think about how automatic the production of text has become. How often do you see handwritten text beyond the grocery list stuck to your fridge with that little banana magnet? Not often, I bet. But then, that’s just how the world works today. Suck it up, will you? Now say goodbye to your handwriting and get in the car.

I used a similar service to this a couple of years ago. Worked great and I really like having my signature in font form.
