    Where are you getting the 81.7mm figure? Are you thinking that the 80.3mm ± 1.5mm on the diagram should be the width of the label? If so, why are you thinking that? Do you want the label to wrap exactly...

    Hi guys! (and gals) These may seem like dumb questions, but I'm trying to develop my skills in design and I've been on a crowdsourcing site just messing around (not really intending to win) but I don't...

    Do you have a reason for making some strokes on the R and the A so thin they become insignificant, and make the logo hard to read. Not having the serifs on the right side of the I make it look like part...

    Does anyone have this font?
    I am not trying to steal it but want to see how to weights look within a phrase and it is a little hard on sites such as MyFonts without cutting and pasting ion Photoshop to get the preview.

    oh wait, I could do a Screen Capture and that way it will be large enough to see it.
    well, if anyone has it and can PM me so I can have you create a JPG (not sending me the font) I will buy it if I feel it is the right choice.

    Thanks

      Just as an FYI:

      A couple of years ago we were investigating a font, we weren't sure if it was the right one for us. I believe we went to myfonts.com or possibly fontshop.com, I e-mailed their customer service, and they sent me a PDF with the phrase we were looking at (it was for a logo). As a result, we ended up buying a font out of a few different choices.

      Just sayin', it's worth checking out customer service at some font sites to see if they'll do the same.

        Thanks for the Tip Urstwile, next time I will do that. Now I just have to figure if I want to buy the whole family or just the couple I need.

          Purchasing FONT

          ok, I need a bit of help here.
          I want to now purchase Bodega.
          Problem is, it comes in Mac PS, Win PS, Mac/WinTT.
          (if it came as Opentype there'd be no problem.)

          I have a PC now, but will be buying a Mac within teh next year.

          Should I buy the TrueType so it is cross platform or buy teh PC Postscript so I can use it now and then convert the font with Fontagrapher (maybe work will let me, or I could purchase it if I want more fonts converted)

          Thoughts.
          Thanks

            I'll post only because nobody else has. I don't trust converters enough to use
            them in production. If a converted font caused me one re-run, the real version
            would have been paid for many times. If a converted font caused you 1 or 2
            hours of work around, the real version would be paid for I'd expect. Maybe it
            would work just fine, but I wouln't risk it.

              I think I remember reading somewhere that Windows True Type fonts can be used on the Mac operating system.

                True, truetype can be used on a Mac but is it good for printing? I had heard otherwise, although, I know we have used some in print ads at work, so I guess it will be fine.

                  It should be fine, provided you're buying it from a reputable source.

                    well, i was going to go through www.myfonts.com
                    same price at a few other (brand name) Font Houses so i am guess it is all the same.

                    Thanks

                      Some Windows TT work on Mac, some don't. I have yet to see them load on
                      a Mac and not work though. There are even some Open Type fonts that
                      work on only one platform. If a Windows TT works on my Mac it usually
                      prints fine.
