    I thought that this font was "Antique Shop" (letterhead fonts) but there are many differences, does anyone recognize it and if so where can I buy it?

    Just to clarify I am looking at the WR Case font...

    Looking at the document, it seems to be very old. It was probably designed by hand as a one off.

    If that document is original then it's most likely a steel engraving and no settable type face was involved. A product of the engraver's hand much the same as a hand lettered sign.

    Yeah technology is poor here in Branson. Just playing around from the hotel room while on vacation. Man so many nice sign ideas down here and tons of pics. Bought a couple of vintage signs down here.

    Here is what I came up with but I have limited fonts and only corel draw here on my laptop. Looking forward to being home with my mac and CS5!

    Still need to redo the W and work on the shadow and sizing issues to make it look closer to the real thing, then I can make the mirror.
