    A couple of tips on getting fonts identified ...

    1. Post a sample that is a decent size, in the range of 600 to 800 pixels wide.
    2. If it's a digital photo, take the photo from a squared up perpendicular position to reduce distortion.
    Doing these two things allows for an automated search against more than 35,000 saved samples and will often get the correct result with only a minute or two needed to run the search.

    It's not the resolution that's the problem ... it's the distortion.

    I ran a comparison of just the "S" in "Shop" which appears relatively undistorted and it came back with a No Match result.

    Found It!

    Disregard the below drivel.

    The font is Maranallo. Find it here, about halfway down the page, left column:

    http://www.fontface.com/fonts/m.html

    <drivel>I have that font at the shop. However, I can't remember where I found it, or the name off the top of my head. If no one else can help, I'll try to post first thing Monday from the shop and let you know what it is.</drivel>
