    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.

            ps sorry about the extra letter in your name the other day

              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.

                          Understood. I shall choke down my pride and stick with the filled version of the corner pip. Please hold as I cry in the corner.

                          The solid pip, while perhaps a (minor) downgrade artistically, is a substantive improvement to the piece's function as a playing card. Personally, I think this queen is a gorgeous piece of work, and my...
