Can I just scan a handwritten font that I created on paper without using the provided template above and save it just as I would the template? Hope that makes sense :)

Thanks, I've been looking for a free way to do this since yourfonts started charging $10 a font. I'm definitely with lemonie, though. Spotlight search Grab, and use that to take screenshots.
