how to use clementine sketch without pissing me off

9 comments ♥ Jan 27, 01:13 PM

Clementine Sketch is a free handwritten script font. It’s a cute font. It has its uses, sure. But I keep seeing people using it incorrectly and it’s starting to make me angry. Yes, there are probably more important things I should be worrying about, but whatever.

Here’s the deal: Because this a connected script font but it’s no fancy opentype font, you’ve got to make the letters work for you. For the first letter of every word, use the capital letter form. At the end of every word, use a caret (shift + 6). If you’ve got a v or w mid-word, use a caret at the end of the letter preceding it.
So, instead of typing “codswollop!” you would type “Cods^wallop^!”
A little annoying, yes, but it keeps whatever you’re typing from looking all weird and cut-off. It’s worth it. Trust me.

And that concludes my little lesson/rant. Thanks for humoring me.

Hi Jessie! The only thing I can think of is to check your tracking and kerning in Photoshop’s character palette and make sure it’s set to 0. Hope that helps!

Hi Jessie, is there a webfont for this clementine sketch? if not, then the only way out to reproduce it is to use images yes?

Great tip! I’ve (briefly) used (or attempted to use) this font in the past but the cutoffs turned me off. Thanks very much for the insight! I’ll have to revisit Clementine :)

I think you’re my new favourite person. I’ve had this font for AGES, but never used it because i could never get it to look right. Thank you!! PS) There is some spam in the comments of this post that needs deleting!
