Gurmukhi Handwritten - Adhiapak - This is a real-life Gurmukhi handwritten font. It is still highly legible as it keeps largely to the Gurbani style of character production - the sort of style that your teacher would use.
On the other hand, it turns your machine-produced-looking text into something that a real person would have written, capturing the energy and flow of the writing.
It appears in 9 different weights from Thin to Black, a Script version and also two weights of a marker version, complete with tips fonts (click on the two images on the right to see larger versions in a new window).
The tips font produces a series of dots as you would if you were using a felt-tipped pen to write with. This is where the pen has been placed on the medium and the ink has had time to soak in or, where the pen has been lifted from the medium and it has left a small 'pool' of the ink. To use one of these fonts in a word processor or presentation program, type out what you want to and then duplicate that layer/object or whatever your program calls it. Keep it in the same place but change the font to the tips version of that font and the tips will show up.
With the lighter colours of highlighter pens, they leave a pool of opaque ink that is lighter than where the pen has been moved when writing.
Use your imagination and your skills with your image editor - think of how light is: reflected from the surface of the ink; and transmitted through it; when it is thick (as in one of the tips parts) and when it is thin (as in the rest of the writing.
