Thanks everyone, nice to know that my efforts were appreciated.
I'll still be around and still on the forum, just representing a different company!

If you were in your 20s would you get into printing?
I'm having a tough time even recommending past co-workers to come into my current shop, and we need workers badly.
I can't imagine anybody with the skills needed to even start in prepress wouldn't go into the IT field instead. Hell, I know of one guy who recently left printing to get into cloud/IT work. Smart feller.

Although prepress and printing were good to me over the course of my career, it's just not the case these days. The company that I worked for previously for decades is held above water by a very small core of key production people, most of whom are my age. Some of them have put in for retirement. As they lose these people the ship will go down. Also, check out some of the larger producers, including the company I worked for, on Indeed or Glassdoor and the employee review ratings are very poor - usually only 1 or 2 stars. Low wages, clawed back benefits, no pensions, temp agency employment are what potential applicants can look forward to now. Not a chance in hell I would go into printing if I were 40 years younger now.

Font Squirrel is another font identifying site. It's worked for me even when What The Font didn't.

General Prepress / First Aid font ?
« Last post by Syphon on October 21, 2021, 03:54:44 PM »
Hey guys! I just received a job to design a "First Aid" tshirt.
I swear I seen this font before but I can't remember what it is.
See image attached.

Does anyone know what font this might be?
I have tried Photoshop's Match Font and Whats the Font website and not go.
