    This almost looks like a New Romans font... but it's got some weird scripty stuff going on, and it's a bit fancier. Is it maybe custom done? Any ideas?

    Here's the link. It's their logo at the top. I have no artwork, just a web addy they gave me.

    Any ideas? I guess it was done 10 years ago and they want it reproduced.

    Totally customized Bookman Bold. Has a twisted flavor of the swash version. Very popular in the 70's when vans were the "Sh**!, I mean "*****'in" Brotha!

    Oh... JUST what I wanted to hear on a job with a $20 design fee budget.

    Bleck.

    Anything kinda close? Just to get the same "feeling" across?

    Maybe it's time to browse through DaFont and see what they've got. None of mine seem to be "groovy" enough. LOL

    Thanks Ken!

    I think that will work. And of all things... I found it on one of my hard drives!
