The Secret to Envelopes ByHand's Beautiful, Natural Calligraphy:tm: 
Using SagittalScript® technology, each script in Envelopes ByHand® includes information on pen speed and direction, which is used to recreate the way a pen would look on paper.  It is much more natural than "script" fonts in many ways: 
  • allows letters to extend over, under, or through the surrounding letters;
  • each script can contain many examples of each letter, from which Envelopes ByHand® chooses according to the surrounding letters, to simulate natural handwriting;
  • with the separate ByHand ® editor program, you can use commonly available pen tablets to enter your own calligraphy or handwriting directly into the program.

  • Purchase Scriptpak 1 for 10 additional beautiful calligraphic scripts.
