  • Is Geneva CE a printer font?

    Coming from the old school of the Mac Plus and SE, I always thought that Geneva was a System font, as were most of the "city" name fonts - Chicago, New York, etc.
    I have a client that has sent me an 84 page directory that uses Geneva CE Reg, Bold, and Italic, throughout, mostly in ads. I'm having a heckuva time finding a printer font and think she's going to be in trouble when (or even if) I get her a proof later today. She's in the next time zone so thought I'd post first before calling her with bad news.
    Anybody?

    It sounds like an Eastern Europe font?

    See the section on Roman Serbo-Croation
    Good luck with that.

      Ah, are you on a mac Rick?
      Go to International under your system prefs and turn on Czech. It will give you a Geneva CE font. I think it's a keyboard coding thing.

          On a side note Rick, do you want your coach Dan Monson back? We don't want him any more.

              I don't know. But it's funny, while he's at Gonzaga they are a Cindarella team, and when he leaves they are a powerhouse.

                I think that is going to work. I've asked the client for the printer font, which I don't think she has Plus half of the ads she built in Photoshop with massive layers, rasterized fonts...bloody mess. And then she's using Quark 6.
                Gawd it's a great life.
                I'm thinking of going out on my own...commercial printing is too much!!!

                  Rick, in OSX, Geneva is a dFont. It shouldn't need a printer outline?
                  I really don't understand the relationship between the Internationsl keyboard enablers and the fonts. I think (but I'm not sure) that the CE allows for certain punctuation and lettering 'ligatures' not usually found on a standard US keyboard.

                  You might want to ask your client if she really meant to be using that font.

                    She's really over head on this project, having done small newspaper ads in Multi-Ad Creator to jumping into a high end 80+ page 4 color booklet. I tried changing the keyboard and that just made some of my shortcut commands not work! Couldn't for the life of me get Fit in window to work in Indd after turning on the Czech keyboard! I think Geneva was a poor choice and mentioned that to her. Hopefully she has changed that in the new file she sent overnight. I will find out when I get in. Thanks, PD, especially for that interesting section on Roman Serbo-Croation fonts!

                      There can be much more to the process that goes beyond the first meeting where you don't always get a budget and a contract on that particular day and you may have to put some money into the process before...

                      I am in the real world and this is how I work. I don't proceed without a 50% check in hand. I've never had any trouble getting it. Must be my personal charm and talent

                      Yes, my only other idea was a carbon fiber texture on the main "gorilla" text...I just chose to post here before executing anything further. I really don't want to emphasize teeth, but...
