    First of all you will need Fontographer.Search in google.

    Found it on ehow.


    Open Adobe Photoshop and click "File" and "New." Adjust the image size to 375 pixels by 300 pixels.

    Step 2
    Draw a letter on the canvas. Start with the capital letter A. Use a tablet or draw freely if you have a steady hand. If these options don't work, hand draw the letters on a sheet of paper and scan and upload them to Adobe Photoshop.

    Step 3
    Copy the image to the clipboard by pressing "CTRL" + "A" and then "CTRL" + "C."

    Step 4
    Open Fontographer. Click on "File" and select "New Font." Choose the letter you created and double-click on it.

    Step 5
    Paste the image to the Fontographer canvas by pressing "CTRL" + "V." Resize the image so that it is the proper size in the square provided. Stretch the image by holding the shift key and dragging the corners of the image.

    Step 6
    Create an outline of your letter by pressing "O" on your keyboard. In your layer palette, click on "Outline." Press "CTRL" + "SHIFT" + "T" to trace the image.

    Step 7
    Save the image. Don't risk losing your work.

    Step 8
    Adjust the tracing around the image to ensure that it's all around the letter. When using the autotracer, the image is not always completely traced. Use the dots around the image to help outline the letter.

    Step 9
    Use the arrow tool and press "CTRL" + "8" to create a curved point instead of sharp edges, if desired.

    Step 10
    Adjust the lines sticking out of the point. Press "CTRL" + "SHIFT" + "U" to place curve points. Move the points around for a more shapely letter.

    Step 11
    Press "CTRL" + "K" to preview the letter.

    Step 12
    Save the letter, close it and repeat the steps to create other letters.

    Step 13
    Open all the characters you have created, highlight them and press "CTRL" + "SHIFT" + "K." This will auto-fix any problems with your font.

    Step 14
    Click "Auto Kern" under "Metrics" to kern your font.

    Step 15
    Under "Element," select "Font Info" and then "General." Type in a name for your font and add a description.

    Step 16
    Set a vendor ID for your font under "Element," "Font Info" and then "OS/2 Data." Set fsType embedding to $0000.

    Step 17
    Click on "File," "Generate Font Files" and generate a Truetype font. Rename the file to a .ttf file and upload the font to your computer.

    Hope that help
    Cheers :)

    You might be better off doing this in Illustrator.
