    I now know what this font is, but I'd like to see what y'all find with your various methods.

    My customer sent me a JPG of their logo which contained these letters, and to my surprise, not only did I not have the font, but FMF gave nothing on a web search. I was perplexed, as the customer later referred me to it on DaFont as a free download.

    What do you get? (If you have this font on your computer, it will show on FMF).

    Colin, the closet I get is ATSackersGothic, but only after squishing a bit. The "O" defn' looks like it originally was a circle that has been subsequently squished.

    But, squishing doesn't fully account for how narrow the "B" and "P" are as compared to Sackers.

    Soooo.... I don't know.

    Thanks. No, that's not it. The sample hasn't been forced or altered in any way.

    I just went into serif fonts at dafont.com and entered "M BOAMP" for display characters and just cruised them 50 at a time looking only at the "M" -- its pretty unique and it didn't take long to pop out. I had the other letters next to it to confirm if a possible match warranted a further look.

    Didn't take long.

    Well done.

    I look forward to when FMF has a more comprehensive data bank for web searches.

    Not exactly, but I did have one disappointing experience lately with this image (this has been cropped). I wrongly assumed that the white outline was an outline, when in fact it is the actual letter, with a burgundy inline. Anyways, FMF didn't find it at all when I selected the burgundy, even though it was on my computer. It only worked if the white is selected.

    I thought that it would at least find it based on the shape & form of the letters, but it didn't.

    Still, I'm thankful for the time & effort Harris has put into this software. It'll only get better.

    Don't get me wrong Colin, I too think FMF is well worth the $ and it will only get better. I don't mean to sound so critical of the program...just honest.

    Microsoft's Constantia?
