    Let me start off by saying HAPPY 4th OF JULY to y'all! Hope you are enjoying your holiday...those who are able to take it off!! HAHA!!
    I'm wondering if someone can help me with the font on the attached link. Once you click, scroll down to the bottom and it should be on your right hand side. It says "alberta registry agent". I have the alberta logo, but i'm not 100% what the font is for "registry agent"??
    Here is the link.... http://images.google.ca/imgres?imgurl=http://www.ama.ab.ca/images/images_content/authorizedAgentsBlack.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.ama.ab.ca/cps/rde/xchg/ama/web/registries_Vehicle-RegistrationsPlates.htm&h=116&w=175&sz=5&hl=en&start=6&tbnid=ss_xoeOxmcA6HM:&tbnh=66&tbnw=100&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dauthorized%2Bagent%2Bfor%2Balberta%2Bregistries%26gbv%3D2%26svnum%3D10%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DG

    :Canada: :thankyou:

    In all honesty, for what it is, I can't imagine anything close would not be close enough. I haven't memorized the subtle differences between Helvetica, Ariel, or Swiss italic... but I'd try some of those first and look to the swoops of t, g and y for a match.

    Also, something to try on future posts, that may help those who rush through reading posts & don't always want to follow links...

    In google, when you get a hit on your image... if you click on "see full size image" then you will get a page with nothing but your image... then if you copy the URL from the address bar... back here at signs101, in the reply box where you enter your posts, you can click on the little picture of a mountain at the top of the reply box. It brings up a box where you can highlight the "http://" and past in the address to your image. This will usually put the image you want people to see right here in your post. (about 5% of the time, it only puts the link in... but lets see if it works for me now)


    this is also good when some links are so long they create the need for scrolling to read every post that follows.

    My guess is Myriad Italic
