    I don't know if this is custom, or a font. Anybody have any ideas, I would really like to avoid recreating this off of a business card.

    doesn't seem to hard to trace, but i would look at shovel's idea....that font is much more attractive than what you've been supplied

    Shovel, love the idea, but it is for a bakery that has been around for years
    and years. Although a revamp is needed, the suggestions will fall on dead
    ears.

    Especially because it is for 18 x 12 parking signs! Looks like they have to find
    the file, pay for an hour of art time, or be happy with a generic font. Oh, well,
    so much for hoping!

    Ever occur to you that contacting Corporates marketing dept. direct will usually net you any and all files you need within a matter of a few seconds or mouse-clicks? Work smarter rather than harder....screwing around with a corporate logo will work against you in the future.

    I have tried this approach, turned out to be more work that to see if was a simple font. Wound up waiting forever, then talking to somebody else and passed around to a few other people. Try again tomorrow, but I just wanted to get these out because both me and them are in a hurry.

    Sorry to hear they gave you the run around. I can honestly say that I've not had that problem with the exception of having to wait an hour or so a couple of times for the right person to return to the office and email the correct file.

    Day Sign, Thanks a ton for that, I'm sure I can trace that in no time.

    S-Rex, I don't at all want it to seem that the company gave me the run
    around. They were all nice and as helpful as the could be, I just couldn't
    get in touch with the right person, and perhaps I fell through the cracks. I
    don't ever want to make it seem that the company was jerking me around,
    because they were not. I think it may have been timing and me knot
    knowing the right person to talk to. All were helpful as could be, and I want
    no one to think that anyone was doing anything less than they could. I
    have sent another message to them, but I think that the image daysign
    sent will be more than adequate for a parking sign.

    An I must admit, a hurry on my part was partially to blame for the hasty
    search for the logo.

    Anyhoo, thanks all, hopefully I can run these all out tomorrow and not have
    to worry again!

    Whoever dies with the most script fonts wins.
