    OMG did fred just say he doesn't have that font in his database??? Yep, there's your reason for being stumped...
    BTW, I am always amazed at Fred's ability to call fonts, I guess that's why he's the big dog!

    Yea...I know what you mean....when I first saw that he had responded I was excited....i just knew he was going to steer me in the right direction.....I must say I was SHOCKED myself....this may turn out to be an interesting question. Fred you're still the man in my book. I'll let you slide this once.

    The character appears to be an individual character creation, as the proper calligraphic structure was not followed in its creation, leading me to believe that an entire font does not exist. No matches in any of my font collections. Sorry! If Fred does not have it and can't I.D. it, It probably does not exist! Period.

    Sounds like a fancy way of saying..... 'Bastardized' font. Probably hand created.

    Sorry there Rex…….

    I just like to see that word spelled out. It has a nice flow and feel about it. Makes you wanna create words, no matter what they mean… just to see letters doing something neat. Yep, that’s the ticket, now I’m goin’ home and we’re going to the ‘Fire Company' tonight and we’re going to drink ‘CHEAP’. Now there’s a place where cheap has a great meaning……

    Do you actually need/want the whole font or just the item shown?
    Could be traced easily enough...
    Cheers!
