    Tekton sorta has "dots"

    ...they don't look like much in this pic, but like when an architect stops his pen for a second before lifting it off the paper leaving these neat line terminations?

    Tekton, Technical, and I'm sure other names as well depending on whose it is. It's supposed to look like a casual round-tip speedball alphabet. Hence the initial blobs.

    That's getting closer Rick, but it's not exactly it...I know I have some scrapbook stuff here from my sister in law using that style. Let me see if I can find some and take a pic. I have the exact font in Composer on my work machine that we imported into it. Dang...stupid name eludes me.

    Will have to post it in the morning if someone doesn't beat me to it.

    Sottydoo, yes it is the type the scrapbookers use. Sorry i did not have something to post to give you all an idea plus this is the company's sucky computer that its hooked up to the internet and gives me constant problems.
    Thanks to everyone for your responses. I will keep checking back!

    There are some fonts like these at http://www.momscorner4kids.com/fonts/

    I don't rememeber any names right off hand, but I thought I throw that at you if you had the time to browse there for something that looks close. A lot easier than us doing it when we have nothing to look at.
