    Can someone please help identify the "WM" in the background of the attached logo along with "THE MARTINEZ GROUP" text. The W is the same font as in Wendy's name.

    Thanks in advance for your assistance.

    Both of those fonts are great for the W and for THE MARTINEZ GROUP, but what is the M font in the WM logo? It is a slightly different font than Edwardian Script? Thanks in advance for your help!

    Both the M and the W are alternate characters in the font. Check the Glyphs page and you will see them.

    I can only see the upper case M and the lower case M. Question: What exactly do I type using the Edwardian Script font to get the M to display like in the sample? It isn't cap locks and M...do I need to type in special characters to alternate the M character?

    The M in the logo looks like Kunstler (or Kuenstler) Script that has been stretched a little wider and stroked to make it match the W.

    It would depend on what software you are using. I would check in the Character Map Utility under Windows Accessories to see if it shows up there. If it does then you will also be able to get the alternate code to input through your keyboard numeric pad. Here's a pic of the character in the font.

    The "M" in the "WM" part of the BrokerLogo.jpeg image is definitely not in any version of ITC Edwardian Script. It's not one of the alternatives of the "pro" OpenType version. That particular "M" was indeed grabbed from a variant of Kunstler Script. The funny thing is there are multiple flavors of it from different foundries. For instance Linotype's Kunstler Script Std has a different looking "M". Kunstler Script Two has an "M" that is a match.

    It is glyph #469 from the ITC Edwardian Script font sold at MyFonts.com. Here's a link to the display page:

    https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/itc/edwardian-script/pro-regular/glyphs.html?render=old

    Details of the actual glyph are shown HERE.

    I'm still not seeing that "M" in the BrokerLogo.jpeg file in the ITC Edwardian Script Pro glyph table. I've scanned through all 600+ glyphs on that page and only see two capital "M" characters. I attached a screen shot of that part of the table. I also attached a comparison of the "M" glyphs in the two typefaces. That "M" in the Kuenstler sample is not in the Edwardian Script typeface.

    Thanks for all of your input! The Kunstler M is close enough for what I need to re-create a broker's logo for their sign. I appreciate all of the input and help!

    Sorry for the confusion. I have been basing my comments on the "M" in Martinez ... not the "M" in the broker's logo itself. I just noticed that they are different.
