The fonts I've been creating here don't seem to be spaced properly.
There are two options to correct the problem:
1.) Open the scanned image with a paint program and look for some artifacts close to the letters with to much space. Remove the artifacts, save the image and submit the improved image.
2.) Use the sister website www.paintfont.com to create your fonts. With paintfont.com you can submit a scanned template together with a base font. Both fonts will be merged.
Characters from the scanned image will overwrite characters in the base font. This way you can change only certain characters in already created fonts.
The base font option is a bit hidden under:
Upload filled out templates -> Advanced Settings -> Basis font file

How to embed a font into a word or a powerpoint documentWhen you install a font, that font will only work with the computer you have installed it on. If you share documents with other people or open it on a different computer, the new font you have installed on your computer will not be displayed the same way on the other computer.
To make sure that other people can see the fonts on different computers, you can embed the font to save the characters with your document. On the "Tools" menu, click "Options", and then click the "Save" tab. Under "Save options", select the "Embed TrueType fonts" check box. This works if you are using a TrueType font in Word or Microsoft PowerPoint.
