    I have to do a banner for a school here and they want it asap. Now I tried to locate the font but have know clue to what it is. I would find something really close and would think it is it but a letter would be off like a "g" or "a'' or something. Also, the eagle, has anyone ever seen it or have it. I did a scan on this and traced it in flexi (which didn't turn out to great) and i'm just starting to "clean it up" but I was just wondering if anyone knows where I can get one already vectorized. Thankyou so much in advance....

    SERIFA has equally sized strokes.

    Stacy's right, well, about the state anyway...

    It's a Tennessee font but not Memphis, it's Nashville.
    Perfect match. All they did was apply an inline to thin out the letter a little,
    add some angle and stretch it some.

    This is my 30 second rendition of the basic font and style. It also doesn't have the large initial letters either. Hope it helps.

    George

    I'm not making that much money on this banner cause I give them a school discount and to pay twenty dollars for the font is like pulling teeth with me cause I just had my checking closed and reopened in another account cause ebay would make surprise charges to my debit card, and after going through the hassle of that, this new card will never see the internet nor will my checking. I appreciate it very much that you took the time to help me out. Thankyou.:thumb:

    that one is .ai - just click the link and then save target as filname.ai - it should download fine

    I don't have nashville - if I did I can duplicate the effect as well

    No big on the font thing. Everybody misses stuff, that's what makes us human.
    I'll wager one day you'll be the one to straighten me out on something. That's what this site is for: BACK SCRATCHING.:thumb:
