I know the type style in "SugarBritches" is "Girls are Weird" but does anyone know what the words "beachwear" and "gifts" is set in. Or can you suggest something similar to it. Looks like a condensed font.

I know i should request these details from the printer
however the client i’m working for is on vacation and i needed to have these finished by the time he’s back. However to make my work a little double later on, i would like (of course if you guys don’t mind) to have the paper sizes for the following items:

A4 envelope (obviously an A4? O_O )
cd cover & sticker
Letter Head
notepad & desk pad
small envelope( actually a normal size envelope)

Thats it.

ps. is there a website that has all these basic stuff layed out for print work?
ie. business card, and most of what i mentioned above.

Anyone have any recommendations on what software/file format combination works best, when developing type specimens for the web? Will one get better results from Photoshop CS compared with Photoshop 5.5 or 7? More specifically, does Photoshop / ImageReady CS do a better job of compression than the older versions? I'm assuming that it does. PNG or GIF?

I want nice, smooth, lovely, type specimens, that load quickly. And I'm seeking some typophile wisdom

I just posted pictures of some type specimen catalogs in the “off our shelves ” section in my blog. Besides Plakat Schriften, I posted a really cool Wood type specimen catalog.

I'm very close to finish the ' italic' version of Geogrotesque, it took me about 3 months for correct optically the distortion of slanted and now I have serious doubts about the naming. Although it have changes in some glyphs (for example 'a' and 'f') is more an ' oblique' version than an italic.

What do you think about the naming?
Oblique have a 'negative' connotation in the customers?

In conclusion, I need your help:
Geogrotesque Italic or Geogrotesque Oblique?

Thank you, em.

I've managed to escape knowing these two typefaces, although they're quite popular. The first is the sans serif Print magazine uses for its body copy. It's a wide typeface, and is rounded when it's bolded. Does anyone know this without me scanning and posting it?

The second (I've attached) has a lowercase l that curves at the baseline and a slightly squared o.

I'd like to announce the release of my latest type family, Quantico. Quantico is an angular typeface family that was inspired by old beer packaging and military lettering. It utilizes 30 degree angles and completely straight lines to form unique character shapes. Equally at home in text or display settings, Quantico includes 3 alternate characters as well as several ligatures.

Buy and preview it now at Youworkforthem and Myfonts

And don't forget to stay tuned to my latest efforts via and my recently implemented blog.

Hi all,

I’m looking for sans serif faces that have a “curled foot” (for lack of a more precise description) on the right leg. Examples include Priori and Tarzana Wide from Emigre.

Not interested in legs that have an convex, or outward curve, like many other sans (e.g., Myriad) and slabs.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

I don’t think this really belong in the ID Forum as it’s a source I’m after rather than an ID.

I’d like to find a Windows font of the official Norwegian traffic sign font shown in this page from the sign design manual

there are further showings from page 39 onwards of this PDF

It’s very similar to various DIN type fonts, but is (of course) not the same.

I found the sign designs (downloadable in a variety of formats), but with my non-existant Norwegian I can’t find the font anywhere on the site.

I have tried mailing the department, but I’ve not had a reply yet.

All help gratefully received.


‹ Fonts that clip the tops off their a's Serif font with a small hyphen? ›


I am new here and also new to fonts creating,
I just registered because I want to create a (smart) font but I'm not sure how to do it.

The font will be only UPPERCASE characters, that I will create in Illustrator and then paste in Fontlab, and I want to create multiple character instances/glyphs for every letter, and basically rename them A, A1, A2, A3, ... X, X1, X2, X3, and so on. The differences between these Xs for examples would be that:
X is the regular X
X1 is the regular X with a _ (line) added on the bottom left corner ( _X )
X2 is the regular X with that line on the top left corner
X3 is the X with both lines on the left.

The purpose of these characters is that when I type LX, the font to automatically replace the X with X1 in this case, so the L is joined with X due to that bottom line;
Also if after that TX (TX2 actually) I type another X, the font to change this new X with X3 in order to be linked to the previous X (X2 actually) perfectly by two lines now (X3 has one line on top left and another line on bottom left corner).

Basically I think this needs to be something like the fi substitution but I've never done this before, and not sure how I can set up my glyphs and create the syntax to change only the i from f i instead of replacing the whole f i with a new fi glyph.

I hope I was clear enough, any help/suggestion is greatly appreciated, Thank you.

I have a project where I'd like to show this concept to a client (they use a lot of translucency in their brand, so this would be a great way to show it off, and make a cool piece). The piece itself is a pocket folder, but the transparent layer, with its white underprinter to create areas of solid color could just be the outside of the folder and bound to it, or act as a slip cover.

Can anyone point me to good online examples of this technique? I really don't want to have to go drop $300 at the Japanese book store to show the client what this looks like, I only have a couple books at home that use it, but nothing like the fantastic ones I've seen from Japan.

I'm not even sure its actually mylar plastic being used, so I'm having trouble even getting anywhere with good. The word transparent plastic is too common to make for good searching.


This is a reasonable example of what I am looking for more examples of.

The book was designed for artists, designers, printers, collectors, students and teachers to gain a better understanding of the basics of typography, its origins and specifically wood type. 330 pages, 9.25"x9"x1" weighing 3 lbs. 6 oz. A hefty book, crammed with information and entertainment.

A recent testimonial tells the story…

Hello all,
For Christmas I received the new book by Gregory Ruffa called "The Art of Wood Type" and it is simply amazing. Outstanding quality and photographs. It delves into so many aspects of manufacturing, collecting, displaying and printing with wood type. Interviews with wood type
historians..pantographs...typefaces... intellectual property and early font patents...U&lc magazine... modern letterpress printers...etc. & more. If you haven't ordered this book yet, look at a few pages from the web site listed below. Such a well done book. 330 glossy pages of wood type and typographical history.

It was $50 plus shipping. I think it's only available through his web site.

Really similar to Futura heavy / century gothic but M is more slanted. Any guesses ?

Can anyone identify this all caps sans serif?
