Gloria Jean’s Coffees

Hand-Drawn Chalkboard Effect

Gloria Jeans’ Coffees likes to use chalkboards in their designs. After looking for fonts, I wasn’t happy with what I was finding for “chalk” fonts; nothing looked realistic. After doing some research, I found a way to make my own realistic looking font. I chose a font, laid it out how I wanted on the computer, made it a very light screen and printed it out. I then drew over each letter with a pencil and scanned it back in. After some manipulation in Photoshop, voila! A realistic looking chalk font. I was very pleased with the result.
