    I am having some trouble finding this font that goes to part of a sign. Thanks for any help. Sorry if the quality is sucky the marketing people sent me a lousy file to work from and it is more work to get them staightend out than to just reproduce the sign myself.

    A combination of software and experience. In this case I recognized the sample to be someone's Garamond. I then simply did a visual comparison using Typograf. When a sample is better quality, I usually start out by using the Font Expert font ID program.

    I've always said it as "I see said the blind carpenter as he picked up his hammer and saw."

    Yes, I agree that's how the proverb goes, but I was on break and only had like 30 seconds to respond :)
