Pumpkin Font

Ok, who is surprised that I manged to create a font inspired by one of my favorite thing? :D I searched and realized there were no short, fat, round pixel fonts out there and knew such a font would be perfect. :nod: One or two of the letters make me go "meh", but overall I am really happy with how this turned out. AND I EVEN PIXELLED OUT ALL THE SYMBOLS! It is a complete font! :boogie: I have a feeling this might be my last one for awhile. These are super fun to do, but finding a creative way to make letters is TOUGH!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Some advice when using this:

It is used best at 6 pt (16 pixel).

As a heads up, in some instances you might have to add a random letter to have your word come in crisp. You can then go in and erase the letter manually. (If someone knows of another way to correct that, please share. I am still new at font making and am kinda guessing as I go. :giggle:)

Example:

If you use this, I would love a link to see what you made with it. :meow: Credit would also be nice, but isn't really necessary

I was wondering how to use this to make a stamp?

You have to download the folder, unzip it, and then copy it into the font folder on your computer.  It will then be available in your art program. :)

Used here:  fav.me/d6h6zcf
In GIMP all you have to do is to uncheck the Antialising box from the text dialogue.
And I have used it at 31 and 46 pixels and it still looks very good.
Thank you for creating this lovely font.

Kind of late to the party but as far as your note
"(If someone knows of another way to correct that, please share. I am still new at font making and am kinda guessing as I go. :giggle:)"
if you turn anti-alias off in corel or set it to none in photoshop it becomes crisp without adding the extra character :)

Hurray, more pumpkin related stuff. Great job. I can imagine making a font would be hard. I love the two little pumpkins in this especially the one on top because it's weird shaped.

It was a bit tough, but so much fun too. :) And I love my pumpkins. Thanks! :D
