We try so hard to find the exact font and a lot of times we can't!
Oh and how many times have you tried to match the font and couldn't
and then they send you the font?  :laugh:

I don't even try anymore and don't ask either. I either outline it if I can or replace it with Helvetica, Arial, or Times. If it is a script font I'll replace it with whatever I have handy.

I try. I will give myself about 10 minutes, then after that, it's like Joe said.

Use Chrome and load the FontNinja app.

Go to their website and it lists the font as Georgia.

Font Squirrel (yes, that's the name) is another site like What The Font. I usually try both. They work in a similar fashion, but sometimes get different results.

I also use a Chinese website which identifies things that MyFont and Font Squirrel can't. 


A word of warning - it looks dodgy so I never click on any link or download a font from that site.

I make an effort to find the font, but will not put more then 10 minutes into it. If I cannot tell with whatthefont I just shoot for something similar. If they want exact they will have to supply the font. Never had an issue with this approach.
