It's actually pink, but I'm splitting hairs here.

I need to ask everyone NOT to create posts asking if others have a certain font or even asking in existing threads. While I know it can be very convenient it is also illegal and I don't need the font police showing up at the B4Print doorstep.


Guilty here. No problem Joe.


No one is all that guilty and I'm not trying to single out any one person. I had just noticed yesterday there had been several threads posted in the general public forums of people requesting fonts. Just trying to keep it out of the public eye.

Thanks, Joe. This is not something to be joking around with.

My boss previously worked at a huge local printer, and was there when they got busted for software piracy and paid about $250,000 in fines (plus they had to buy legal copies of everything.) Even though he knows that this is a real thing, he constantly pushes the envelope around here, tells me to put a copy of something on another machine so the platemakers can "practice" with the software, tells a guy to "hurry up and get that Mac out to your car before HM comes in" and then lies to me when I ask if the IT guy had a chance to clean the apps off it first. I wouldn't have known if the guy hadn't nearly run me over trying to get out of the parking lot with his Mac full of "free" Adobe & Quark stuff. (We all had to sign a statement years ago acknowledging that we can be fired for loading unlicensed software on company machines or taking company software home. What part of this don't people get?)

I thought that font was used for legal documents and dignified stuff like that . . . not door signs. :huh:
