    Hello & Welcome!

    Welcome to the lettering generator. Your tool for the creative design of all kinds of writings. Take a look at the instructions or explore the individual tools on your own.

    Log inGet access for 0$

    Important: The use of the generator is only allowed for private purposes. If you want to use designs created with the generator commercially, you need the Lettering Generator Plus and additionally the commercial license.

    Quick guide

    You need a little help before using the lettering generator? No problem. In this quick guide, I will explain to you briefly the most important functions. Then you can create your own lettering right away!

    The three function levels

    The generator basically works over three levels. The global toolbar at the top, the sidebar with various functions and the modification directly via the active box.

    1. Global toolbar

    The global toolbar at the top. There you can add new text boxes, change the format or download your font.

    2. Specific toolbar

    The specific toolbar on the right side, where only the currently usable functions are active. There you can, for example, choose the font for your text, change the color or access useful tools.

    3. Direct functions

    The tools directly at the boxes on the workspace (words or images). You can use them to change the position, size and content of your text boxes, for example.

    Special functions

    The context menu (accessible by right-clicking) gives you quick access to certain functions - depending on where the right-click is made (clicking on the workspace or clicking on an object).


    You will need a modern web browser in order to use the hand lettering generator without problems (preferably the latest version of Chrome, Firefox or Edge)! Also you need to select the right format for printing (landscape or portrait, depending on what you choose when designing). If it doesn't immediately work with the print preview, save your image and then print it.

    Lettering quotes for practice

    If you are still looking for special quotes or words for the generator, visit my blog page with lettering quotes. There you will find great quotes, sorted by the number of words. I bet there are also many phrases that you will like.

    V 4.8

    There are again some fundamental changes that affect many functions of the font generator.

    • All values around the font (font size, spacing, line spacing, etc.) can now also be set nominally. This makes it easier to transfer the properties of different text boxes.
    • The font size is now the central metric for the size of the individual boxes - so scaling the text box practically causes the font size to be adjusted.

    • Due to the possible commercial use, almost all fonts had to be replaced. Instead, many new, very elegant fonts have been added.
    • The same applies to the graphics.
    • A new feature is online: Dancing letters! With a single click you can create individual bounce letterings.
    • It is now possible to colorize fonts and graphics as desired apart from the global color setting.
    • More functions have been added to the context menu.
    • Some font design parameters have been added and the settings have been combined under one menu item.

    • The paper size automatically adjusts to the available space on your screen.
    • There is now a zoom function with which you can work more detailed.

    • New decoration elements.
    • A selection of frames and banners.
    • A template gallery to work on the basis of finished lettering compositions.
    • Skewing words is now possible

    V 3.6

    It is finally possible to save your current letterings to work on them again later on. Just click on "Save as..." in the main menu and save your current lettering wherever you want. To start editing a saved lettering just upload it by click on "open...". No registration or login required!

    V 3.5

    New update, new fonts! Especially the clarity of the font selection has been significantly improved. There were also some performance optimizations.

    • It is now possible to select 3D fonts. This helps extremely to understand and learn the principle of 3D letters.
    • There is a beautiful new block letter style with shading. It's one of my favorite styles of lettering.
    • Some decorative fonts have found their way (back) into the generator.
    • The handling of fonts has been optimized. In the font selection all fonts are now the same size and easier to grasp. A faster switching is therefore also possible.

    • The specific tools can now also be found above. Only the tool that can be used in the respective state is active.

    • Optimization of the side main menu.

    Another update of hand lettering generator was done and I added new features the community wished for.

    • There is now a first selection of decorative elements that can be added using the global tools. The decorative elements can be used in gray or black, just like text.
    • Objects can now be mirrored horizontally or vertically.

    V 3.1

    • Text boxes can now be duplicated (even if multiple boxes are selected).

    V 3.0

    There was another large update with many functions which the community asked for. A lot of time has gone into the new features, so that I decided to implement some features as premium features. Each participant of my online course automatically receives access to the premium functions.

    • Now you can select multiple text boxes at the same time and move, scale these together, skalieren, etc.
    • The boxes can be centered horizontally and vertically with one click either on the entire working space or just within one selected group.
    • The line spacing can now also be adjusted individually (helpful for longer texts in the same font).
    • There are several new, beautiful fonts in the generator.
    • You have the choice to save the current status (as a bookmark) and open it at a later time.
    • The completed image can now also be downloaded as a PDF.
    • The text boxes can now be moved on top or below each other in one click.
    • When scaling, you receive information on the current size of your text box.

    V 2.1

    • The text is no longer directly editable. From now an the edit mode has to be started with either one click on the icon or by double-clicking on the text. The reason: The screen keyboard always opened on the smart phone if you moved a box. This was quite disturbing. Now this problem has been solved. Text blocks can now be moved even faster or even realigned.
    • Two new fonts were added (one font with serifs and another handlettering font).
    • The print preview is now generated from the pop up.
    • The website's responsive behavior was completely edited and improved.
    • We now have this changelog ... ;-)

    V 1.2

    • The finished templates can now not only be printed, but also be saved and downloaded as an image.
    • The generator now also works on Internet Explorer 11.

    V 1.1

    • New fonts were added and divided into different categories.
    • It is now possible to change between the text colors grey (template) or black (trace).

    V 1.0

    • The first version of the hand lettering generator is going online!

    Special thanks

    The lettering generator has grown over many years and has been constantly improved. Without support it would never have been possible for me to develop the generator to what it is today.

    A special thanks goes to Christoph (, for his constant help in development.

    Thanks to fabric.js for developing a great canvas library.
