First thing you'll need is the hardware:

  • A pen or some other device that makes a mark on paper.
  • A piece of paper. A napkin will do if you can't find any paper.
  • A computer with a scanner.

Adobe Streamline: Converts your grayscale scan into an eps (Encapsulated Post Script) file which you can open and edit in Illustrator.
Macromedia Fontographer: This is the program that makes fonts.
