Could some please point me to the correct font.

I am having trouble matching this font. I have found very similar ones but it is the Q in Qualified that keeps throwing it off. The tail seems to touch the base of the Q and then drops away again.

Thanks
Iain

Re: Could some please point me to the correct font.

Sorry I don't know, but this is my pet hate... Customers wanting the same font and then sitting back while we troll through 10,000 fonts.

I just say, I'm sure I will find it, it might take me 1-2 hrs which you'll have to pay for, of course, at £50 an hour. Or I could just find a close match if you can't provide it..... Tines new roman it is then lol

Looks close to palatino but not exactly, small text could almost be hand drawn, the lettering doesn’t seem uniform. I would plump for palatino black, will be almost bob on but better

That is a hand painted sign.
The sign writer has based his design on Palatino

The font used looks like it’s been drawn, line thicknesses are all over the place, my advice is type it out in Palatino & show it to the client before cutting, only the keenest eyed customer will see a difference.

I wonder if the person who done this just had a jpeg to work from and traced it? Hence the differences in line thickness

Redrawn complete typefaces in the past when we didn’t have the benefit of font identifiers on google, still use a 15 year old file of number plate letters (pardon me, show plate letters)
