My Own Handwriting Via My Cool Fonts
In the age of extreme personalization, the fonts used in email messages remain pretty standard. Helvetica, Times New Roman, Ariel, Verdana, and maybe when you’re feeling wild and crazy, a little Bookman Old Style.
Now Yahoo! Mail users can easily add some unique FONTastic spice to your email messages with the newest app to join Yahoo! Mail: My Cool Fonts by Fontself. Last year we introduced the feature to many countries where Yahoo! Mail is available. Now we’re extending this to our users in the U.S., and we’re adding greater functionality for everyone.
With My Cool Fonts you can express yourself with cool, fun fonts like Valentine, Magic, and even Middle Earth. And if that weren’t enough, the icing on the cake is that I can create a font with my own handwriting that is available for me to use via Yahoo! Mail.
To use My Cool Fonts, simply click on My Cool Fonts application on the lower left hand side of Yahoo! Mail to launch the application. Select your font and type your message in the window shown.
Once your message is typed, click to “Create email” and a compose window will be opened with your message, ready to be sent to anyone you choose.
To create and use your own font, just click on the “Create a New Font” button within the My Cool Fonts app. You’ll be taken to the My Cool Fonts website where you’ll be instructed on how to create your font for use within Yahoo! Mail. In this example, you’re seeing a message using a font I created with my own handwriting called “My 1st Font.”
With My Cool Fonts and Yahoo! Mail, you can express yourself in ways never before possible. Check it out today.
