Help with font please ???

Anybody help me with this one please ??

This is a scan from a customers letterhead, it doesn't scan well enough to vector, & I am guessing it's a font of some description.
tried an outline & shade without much success :-?

Thanks Mike

I had a feeling it was a font rather than created by shadows & outlines .... thanks for looking ;)

Thanks to you all for trying .... what a thankless task :-?

I have got one letter (Z) done now, just by building it up myself, only took 45 minutes so I should get the other two done in a couple of hours :cry: :cry:

I did have a chat to Steve B who said that it's really the customers problem (i agree) but he's sorta over a barrel because after speaking to his printer, they scanned another letterhead from years back. Who's gonna give me odds that the customer asks for the vector file when I have done it !!!! Who's gonna keep it :evil: :evil:

thanks again all

John

I think I might have it sparky.
MIKE - check the fonts in the VMP manual you borrowed 27 years ago and see if it's there so I can help sparky out mate!
I'm 99% sure it's on the font disc but I dont have it installed on any of my comps.
Cheers

Hi Joe!...yes I do still have your book [oops!]

...but I've looked through the font listings three times now - and I can't see it...there are some like it, that is they are made up of lines etc. but nothing that looks the same...sorry!

more soon

sorry Mike,
I know I've seen that font somewhere!
It might have been in a letraset book as someone said earlier though.
Cheers

thanks for trying joe, seems as if it was an old lettraset font (??) Quite a few have suggested it might be & even the printer who did the original letterheads scanned it from an older one (which he thinks was done from ......... yeah! you guessed :-? )

Thanks for trying all.

Wil have to do some work on it tomorrow :)

Sparky,

My attitude to your earlier question is that if the customer pays you to digitise the lettering then the resulting artwork is his and you are obliged to let him have a copy.

On the other hand, if you don't charge, then it's yours.

Quite agree :wink: that is exactly how I work. I will willingly do logo's for customers but will not release it free for another signmaker to use (sound fair ?)
