    Good afternoon All! Wondering if someone can help me w/ the attached file, by identifying both fonts in the attached image. I tried scanning into Signlab and exporting as .ai to submit for tracing, but it keeps giving me error saying "cannot parse file" (or something like that)...perhaps someone may also know why it tells me this on certain files. Thank you in advance for your replies!

    The script is Palette

    PARK is (I think) Britannic Ultra

    i tried using palette for the script and it seems to just come up as upper case lettering...I dont think i'm doing anything wrong (could be having a blond moment) but I did try w/ and w/out CAPS LOCK on...any suggestions, or is it possible a different font? I've only got Britannic Bold in my font base, but I'm sure that would work fine!

    I'm not sure why the font named Palette, if it is the commercial version, would lack lower case characters. It's pretty much illegible in all caps. If you have CorelDRAW you might want to check the fonts that accompany that program for Bitstream's version of Palette which they call Brush 455.

    I have no idea on the Knights of Columbus text. It's too small and garbled for my automated comparison to work and my old, tired eyes to see enough detail.

    Knights of Columbus looks like Balloon

    I have an old Corel book and there is a font called Palette in there AKA Paint Brush (large and small caps) and that does not match. The link that fred posted is the correct Palette font. 2 fonts, same name, different appearance.

    Is there much difference between "Brush 455" & "Brush 445" because I only have "445" along w/ a few others, but not the "455"? Looks pretty similar to the pic I have, so I'm thinking it will be fine, just wondering the difference? Is it just the boldness?

    It appears that for whatever their reasons at some point Bitstream renamed Brush 445 to Brush 455. They are the same font.
