Handwriting font

Discussion in 'Primary' started by AngelAnnie, Oct 20, 2011.

  1. Hi
    Does anyone know where I can get hold of a handwriting font that looks like Nelson. I've tried the Nelson website, but it doesn't seem to exist any longer.
    Thanks, Annie

    Sassoon Primary looks more like Nelson than any other and seems to be the most commonly used for this purpose.
    It's available in Word and also SmartBoard software.
     
  3. Sassoon is probably the best, but a good free alternative is Jarman. Search for it at dafont.com - I use it all the time [​IMG]

  5. I use a joined and precursive front from http://www.cursivewriting.org/ There are lots of different styles to choose from, and arrow/dotted/outline fonts too.
    You have to buy them, but they are really good, especially the joined font. It doesn't do some of the odd formatting things that Nelson used to do, either!

    We use Letterjoin, but it is not free, the school subscribes. Worth it, though, because we use it for everything - displays, all teacher writing, etc.
