Project Description

For our project, we’ll be creating a JPG promo image to display our handwritten font.

Please include the following:
Your font Name
Each Character, including numbers and punctuation
Sample text, for instance: Thank You! Happy Birthday! The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.

Unsplash.com is an excellent resource for royalty free jpgs to use as your background image. 

I've attached two sample Promo images below. as well as the PDF template file.
