    I didn't have any luck trying to find this font online using image search and font id sites.

    I know it's a stretch but maybe its my lucky day?

    99.9% percent that would have been hand drawn. Based on a couple of old typestyles maybe, but I'll eat my hat if there's an actual TTF or OTF anywhere out there.

    Don't know about hand drawn, but maybe press type. Just wait til Tiki sees it, he'll know. :supersmilie:

    That's a scan of a t-shirt and I photoshopped out as much of the texture as possible to upload the image to font ID sites, but the type on the original is clean enough that I feel like its a digital typeface, or at least digitally-created/printed. (not sure what everyones definition of hand drawn type is)

    Its an ancient band shirt that was made with a heat transfer...here's the a picture of the original ~

    Gino, you are probably thinking of Ringlet or Kismet press-type from Formatt.
    The sample is similar in many forms to...
    Acadian (Scriptorium) and Huron (Dan X. Solo)

    Wow a 30 year old shirt, an Ancient Band Shirt. How old are someone who thinks this is Ancient ? 12 years old ? I have a lot of my old shirts that were cool and still in great shape. They still fit me like 30 years ago, I did not gain the 95 lbs. I sure dont wear them every day. I guess I have my memorabilia stash of ones I made and events I attended.

    This thread is the equivalent of a trickshot youtube video, except instead of a 20 story building, it's from the ISS, the hoop is on an F16, in the eye of a hurricane on the other side of the planet. Bravo!

    Clearly Gino's not from the south.
    Do they even sell ranch by the gallon up there?
