    Here is a pretty affordable option to avoid writer's cramp if you are doing your own and have a lot to address.

    FontGod - Handwriting Fonts is just one of the sites that will design a Customized Handwriting Font that looks like either your printed or cursive handwriting. I'm thinking this is awesome not only for wedding invitations, but also for business so you can type out letters in your own handwriting that will still LOOK personalized and hand written.

    Just thought I would share.

    I've already done my envelopes using Scriptina for the names and Copperplate Gothic for the street addresses and FI and I think it looks awesome, albeit obviously computer generated.

    But I love this idea (Mom just told me about it too late).

      Free handwriting fonts. Personal handwriting fonts. Custom handwriting font service - Turn your handwriting into a True Type Font and vLetter Home - Real Cursive Handwriting Fonts are some other options. vLetter looks to be perhaps the best, but it's also the most expensive.

      Has anyone done this yet?

            I chose a handwritten looking font for my STDs. My handwritting is terrible, so I went with someone else's :)

                  Yeah, I think once the wedding is over with, I might get this just to have on hand for work purposes! So much easier than hand-writing some things that you do want to have look more personal!
