    It looks very similar to Bounce Script, only italicized.

    No match but it definitely isn't Freehand 575.

    The jpg looks like embroidery.

    Everything matched except for the W and S. The W was close enough that the customer was okay with it, and I changed the S to a different font and added some slant to get it. Thanks for all the help guys.

    It looks like the simulated rendering that most programs have the ability to give a bitmap capture of the design. Based on how it looks, I think it was rendered from the WINGS program. Might be one of their standard fonts. It doesn't seem to be a Wilcom one.

    Oft times, embroidery keyboard fonts won't exactly match their ttf equivalents.
    We sometimes tweak areas to make them more embroidery 'friendly'.
    Good you found something close, that satisfied your customer.

    In the process, I hope you also adjusted that kerning nightmare.
    Thats one real masterpiece, isn't it?
    oh boy

    Yep, that's true. In the case of this particular font, two things come to mind of possible areas where a direct conversion may not work.

    Kerning on a block font is typically 10% of height,which may or may not be the kerning of the TTF version. For the scripts, there usually isn't any spacing as a standard. All of that can be changed though depending on software.

    Also depending on what size the font is, the serifs may be the same stitch angle (this aren't, but they can be) as whatever they are attached to. A auto conversion from a raw stitch file to vector may yield less then desirable shape (I wouldn't suggest an auto conversion based on a raw stitch file anyway) in that case.

    Sorry for being a :thread
