    As a nice gesture for a friend I am making him a decal in glass etch for the window of his dad's classic car (a 1931 something-or-other I've not seen) It's his mom's name, real small, for on the window of her side of the car.
    I want it appropriate to the era and was thinking of a script, any suggestions?
    NOT brush script.
    :thankyou:
    And I know truly period-correct would be to actually etch it on the glass but I ain't going there! If there's no good script I will look at my Alf Becker fonts.
    Love....Jill

    I was thinking more like LHF Rawson & Evans kind of style rather than a script.

    the ad for the radio with the script lettering "Majestic" looked nice.

    God I just checked out the radios on that ad, my grandma had the Highboy and I was always terrified of it because if you snuck and turned the knob the thing made a weird scary humming sound.
    I'm gonna go mess around with some ideas.
