re: Font ID

Nelson;

Check out the CorelDraw font library. Most versions ship with about 800 different fonts, including
lots of those decorative ones. My initial peruse didn't reveal anything useful in my V8.0.

Here are some sources to send a sample of the font in question and they should be able to tell
you who created it and how to contact them. I found these on wikipedia via Gooooogle. Hope they
are helpful. All of these are NASDAQ listed so are still actively producing.

International Typeface Corporation, NY based
Letraset UK based, they also produce dry transfer sheets
Bitstream now defunct and is owned by Monotype Imaging in March 2012;
Monotype Imaging, in Woburn, Massachusetts

quote from Wikipedia;

"Besides building a library of "classic" fonts (usually under different names for trademark
reasons), Bitstream developed a number of fonts on its own. The Bitstream font collection
is most widely used through its inclusion with the CorelDRAW software. Bitstream also
created the freeware Bitstream Vera family of fonts.

Another Bitstream product is Font Fusion, a font rasterizing engine developed jointly with
Type Solutions, Inc., which was later owned entirely by Bitstream."



I worked for Magnecraft Electric, and they brand labeled about a dozen different companies,
electronics devices. I had to deal with literally dozens of type foundries, or draw the letter-
forms by hand using Adobe Illistrator (very difficult learning curve).

Good luck tho....

re: Font ID

Hi Everyone;

That was amazing Roy.

I'm glad he was able to find for you, Nelson. For a decorative font it is very easy to read.
It should look great in your project. Could we see some of that project as it progresses?

Just sortin'....

re: Font ID

There's quite a bit of font information at that site! Thanks for tracking that down, Roy!

Ningpo, drilling down into the site, the author says this about himself:

"Joined the School of Computer Science at McGill University in 1977 as a young snotnose. Recognized by his peers as a slum dog in 2008, an inglorious basterd in 2009, an artist in 2012, and a gentleman in 2013. "

re: Font ID

Well, if you look at the original source, each of those phrases has a link to something else, so there's I think there's a reason he used movie references.

(One of those times when context adds something.)
