    Can anyone ID this font please? The closest I could find was "Alexa", but the letters seem too thin, and the O is open at the top.

    Truth is, at least speaking for myself, I use a combination of my font management programs (with preview), a collection of font catalogs I have built over the years, sometimes font foundry web sites and catalogs and 35+ years of working with type styles or fonts as they have come to be called. My experience began with "Hot lead", "Photo-type", "Press type", hand layout of letter styles for hand lettering and finally to the good ol' computer.:wink: It also helps to own a "massive" library of fonts.

    No kidding...
    Yesterday I found a site (it may have been fonts.com) that has a find-fonts-by-sight feature. They hit you with a bunch of questions, and it's supposed to return what you want. Unfortunately it didn't work for me this time.



    Thanks for your help everyone!:U Rock:

    That feature can be helpful at times for some, however I very seldom use it.
