  • what font is this?

    Hi All,

    I am having some problems matching this font. I have tried bothwww.whatthefont.com and www.identifont.com with no luck really. They suggested Kaufmann, and Swing, but it is onlt based on the T and O because it couldn't seperate the rest of the letters. They are pretty close, but the h's and l's are off- missing the loop on the ascenders. Any suggestions?

We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of men.’ - Woodrow Wilson

        Before i read your post I was going to suggest Kaufmann - the letters are so close that i think it is probably a knockoff.

        This site has aka font names
        http://www.fontinfo.net/Font_Analog.html

        it suggests - Swing Bold; Tropez - as alternatives.
        (it's not swing. - maybe try and find tropez)
        Some advice is profound, some is clever. The above post is a good example of both.

            Can you use any other font?
            I too thought Kaufman at first. Looks like maybe a tweak on that really.

            Maybe try www.fontdiner.com and look at some old Script ones, I don't think any are that close but Refrshment Stand is a close look.
            House Industries have a few that might be clsoe as well.

              Identify the Font

              There is a website I use to identify fonts and I have never had a problem -it always works for me. It is: http://www.identifont.com/. They ask questions about the letters you are viewing in your sample.

                I think you hit the nail on the head with this statement. I feel like someone should write a book titled "Dealing with Nit Picky Clients." I once freelanced for a company for over 8 months....

                We're using a digital printer for short-run jobs and I have created a job calculator, but not sure what coverage % for C,M,Y,K to use as an average for jobs to quote customers when I don't see the artwork...
