  • Need to Find this Font

    http://www.archive.org/details/RadioatW1944

    About 21 seconds into the video you will see Radio at War appear. I need this font or something that very similar.

    Thanx.

    I'm pretty sure you will NOT find the exact font. Likely done by hand. Though perhaps you can try searching for 'lightning bolt' fonts or something similar.

      You can google "lightning font" and find some fairly terrible free fonts. This looks like it's originally hand-rendered. None of the duplicated letters are exactly alike.

        If you do find a free one, double check the licensing. If this is for a commercial project, you may not be allowed to use it.

          Something that old is almost surely hand-drawn. Luckily letters like that are easy enough to draw, so that may be what you have to do.

            I'm pretty sure it's hand drawn ... no letter matches

              Yeah, there are 3 As and not one is alike.

                I did a little research and came across something quite similar.

                  Thank you for making that screen shot. Most of the letters I need are in there except "E". With some cutting, pasting, and stretching it should work. It's a public domain video as well.

                      WTF has been around a bit ... but an image like that is never going to work. It has to be a clear black and white image with a distinct separation in the letters.

                      .. besides as mentioned previously that particular "font" is hand made.

                          I believe (not sure) that you might still be able to outright buy CS6 directly from Adobe, but you had to physically call them and process it somehow over the phone (and they may discourage you every...

                          Thank you, I'm glad you like them.

                          I am considering using a different color for the portrait and the background, but I'm not sure yet how to manage it.

                          These will be produced on an offset printer with a spot resolution of 1200 lpi. The plan is one spot color on each card, with no tints.

                          I decided to give this a go. I think I prefer the original pattern, but the results are here for you to decide for yourself.

                          Unless you find a CS6 the answer would by no. You are at the mercy of your subscription to Adobe.
                          Also no telling how much longer they will support CS6.

                          The fee still works out to about...
