Anyone know what this font is?
« on: January 27, 2011, 08:38:22 AM »
Recreating a job from film, last run about 10 years ago.  Customer wants us to recreate as close as possible.  The photo to be used is a scan of a previously printed carton...top notch, huh?

Thanks in advance.

Try uploading it to myfonts.com - they have a What The font section that is pretty good at identifying fonts. You may have to cleanup/simplify the image first to get better results, though.

At first glance it looks like Chicago.

Or a molested version of Optima or Optimum.

So,  :drunk3: i send the job to the rip with live transparecy (v 1.7 or whatever) and it craps out with a memory error.

Excellent work, Dan.

Cleaned up the image, submitted it to "What the Font"

and the answer is........ :band:



Grenoble TS-Heavy Italic

Not absolutely perfect, but pretty close enough for something that was probably done with Presstype.

Thanks again,

I thought using What The Font was *common knowledge*. Too bad Pone isn't here anymore, she would have been the first to suggest it.  :kona:

It should be.  I apologize.

When we got our new Macs a few weeks ago, I forgot to copy my Bookmarks.

Just use Comic Sans at a 12 degree angle, nobody will notice.

Does anyone here know what font this is? I've scoured my entire Adobe collection and I know it's not in the Bitstream collection...
HALP. Thanks.

And...Identifont is not finding it. It's probably a $300 font.
