« on: May 12, 2011, 05:02:44 PM »
I didn't see a What the Font section....is there one?  If not...can there be one?

Anyway....I can't find this font.  There actually might be two at work here.....

Any ideas?

Do you need to reproduce that same type...or do you need to typeset new letters to say something else?

Thanks Frog...for setting me straight in catagories.

Hi Scobe!

Yes, Dan I do need to reproduce that logo for their fan wear, but I also need to know the font for something else they want.

Nope, there wasn't one, I slacked off. Even Diane's post didn't alert me to the need. I'm a bad frog.

But we have it now
That rug really tied the room together, did it not?

Crap, I was wrong Jill.
(We need to drag Angie away from her pool table and back into our world.)
Boy, I miss that girl.

Anyway, even though basically the same 'style', none of these, that I have on my computer, are even close to matching.
Sorry.

try this:

not the same, but very, very close. Untrained eye might not see the difference . . .

Yes, we've won our share of awards, and yes, I've tested stuff and read the scientific papers, but ultimately take everything I say with more than just a grain of salt! So if you are looking for trouble, just do as I say or even better, do something I said years ago!

I'm thinking one of the old "speed" sign fonts...

Steve

Wait a minute, I have it,  Sign Painter is the font, and the style is called House Script. You'll have to "twist" it
I made a mistake once; I thought I was wrong about something; I wasn't
