    that font looks different than the ones on the links to buy the font tho. particularly the lowercase e and w.

      I'm on a Mac and I've got thousands of fonts, I ran a search and don't seem to have Cronos. Is Cronos a PC font? Thanks for the response.

        i'm pretty sure its the one that's displayed on the identifont result, but all the cronos's i've found don't look like that, so it might not be cronos :S

        edit: the lowercase g is a bit different than the one on identifont as well

            No, it's a scan I uploaded to "Whathefont". It's a close match to stone sans but the g is wrong--it needs to look like the scan, not roughed up however.

              jimking, I would try the WhatTheFont Forum. The folks there are pretty helpful.

              Good luck!

                You could use Stone Sans for everything but the g. Then use Stone Serif for the g...

                  I did. Exodus, that's a thought, I may try that. I'm a little hesitant because there maybe several more jobs from the same client coming along with the same issues. I'm trying to match previous printings done at some other plant.

                    maybe its just my version of stone sans, but that looks nothing like stone sans, most noticeably the lowercase a and d.

                      ugh! Good luck, I hate having to do that.

                        I ran it through "Whatthefont" and that's what it thinks. This particular piece has stone sans in it so when I ran scan by WTF I thought that was it but it doesn't match.

                          Whatthefont also has a forum, I had success matching a font there once by posting a sample and one of the forum members came up with the answer.

                          Sorry I can't be more helpful, Jim.
