Default Help with a project

So, I have seen a font of DC symbols that includes all the standard lantern symbols from Darkest Night as well as flash's blue lantern, and found dingbats font that has Kyle's original GL symbol. However, this means a few of the symbols are missing.

I have to that end made Black and white versions of some of the special symbols from Darkest Night like super girl's red lantern symbol, Cyborg superman's yellow lantern, and a host of the black lantern suit emblems as well as ION, Kyle's Second GL symbol, Kyle's Parallax symbol, Batman's Yellow Lantern Symbol from the Else world's In Darkest Knight, and the Tangent Green Lantern symbol.

What I'd like to do is turn them in to a font, I am aware that there are font programs that can read certain picture types and convert them in to a font (though I guess a bit extra work is involved with that.) There in lies the problem I really don't have the money to be spending on a proper program to do this.

So here is what I am asking... is there any one that has such a program that I can forward the images to that can convert the files to a font, which of course WE could freely share with everyone. I could probably make a photoshop brush set, but a font is a little more versatile.

so any one who is up for this just let me know

um one of them appears to, http://www.fontlab.com/font-editor/fontlab-studio/ along with an add-on, but like I said I don't have $650 to drop on that atm nor do I antisipate I ever will, which is why I was asking if any one had a font creation program that could do that.

I have a suspicion that, this being Tazer, he may be offering to find it for you "cheaper"...

Only Tazer knows what he intended, but if he was offering to "find" it for you, I suspect it would be well under $200.

Fonts are one of the toughest techs to work with IMO. I use FontForge, which is a crazy nightmare at times, but does the job.

There are a bunch more that might work for you:

So, just curious would it be too much of an imposition to ask if I send you the files to have you convert them to a font for all of us to share?

If it is too much to ask, no big deal, just figured it an't hurt to ask.
