    If you go to www.ubtbank.com and see their logo in the top left corner, could someone please tell me what font that is?

    THANKS!

    It's one of the Baskervilles ... every foundry has one or more of their own versions. The sample is too small for me to isolate it better than that.

    Thanks Fred,

    I tried everyone of those I had though, and none quite matched up. That's why it was frustrating me because they are so similar!!! Well, if anyone else might figure it out, that would be great.

  5. It's not a Baskerville, the "&" is different. The type itself is identical to TImes New Roman with the exception of the "&". It's entirely possible that it is 2 seperate fonts that are similar.
    For example this is what I get in relation to the logo when I combine Times New Roman and Bodoni. To keep the look I used 38 pt Times New Roman and 42 pt Bodoni for the "&". I did not play with traking or kerning, but you get the idea.
    Actual logo from web is on left and my recreation on right:
