    Gerber fonts are proprietary format and only work in Gerber software. Challenge can be purchased at MyFonts.com as a single TrueType as was suggested by Tikiboyz.

    the font is call brandyscript just a little bold, the person who designed the door lettering
    thicked the font with a outline. You may have to slat it a little. the font challenge is not
    a script font it's a bold font... I hope i'm right..

    And don't forget to rotate the font to 270º to match the angle of the image!:Big Laugh

    you "hope"?? ...why not just click Tikiboyz link and see for yourself... or even just take Fred's word for it... no reason to stick your foot in your mouth with outlandish "hopes" of being right, when all the proof that you are wrong is one click away :Oops:

    Okay now that i have my foot out of my mouth, Fred might not know everything, I just wanted to help to find the right font. I can hope for anything and say whatever i want. I didn't see you suggest a fonttype for the lettering Tikiboyz needed. You probably didn't know... this forums is to help one another, not talk ****..! You're probably a old **** with alot of time in your hands. :signs101:

    It's $40 fot that mediocre font. If all you need is the one word why not just vectorize it.

    Well finally getting around to lettering a couple of pickup trucks for a very good friend. I was looking at the PANASCI and thought it was IMPACT but the S has a flat top and bottom. Can someone help me? Thanks in advance!

    The font is Compacta Black with some condensing and offsetting to make slightly bolder.
