    Hello to all,

    We are desperately seeking for the font that is often used as a back number for soccer shirts...
    My sister want to cut them out of flocktransfer...

    It looks like the athletic font, but with a shadow...see picture below...

    We spent so much time on it already but we can't find were we can buy or find it!!!

    Please we need some help!!

    Greetings Rose

    Maybe it'e the perspective but.....

    the "1" doesnt apperar to be the same font as the "6" due to stroke weight....

    Try a Swiss Blk "1" and add a bottom serif....
    and a Machine Bt "6"

    Font for numbers on soccershirts (athletic?)

    Dear Shovelhead,

    Thank you for reacting!
    I thought that athletic looked more like it then the machine font, although it is not much of a difference.

    The big problem is really the open shadow with the vertical stripes

    That is not in the athletic and not in the machine font...

    See the picture!!!!!!

    So strange that such a font that is used so often is not to be found (till now...)

    Thanx and greetings,

    Rose

    If you cant find the specific font......

    add a perspective drop shadow in COREL...."break apart".......
    then do an inline in each element after "ungrouping"

    Difficult!

    Dear shovelhead,

    I've been trying, but i can't manage in such a short time; the problem is that my sister needs to know very soon...
    I guess it is easy for people who know how to use coreldraw...

    I've got the right letter in a .vef format: do you know if I can convert this?

    Thanx Rose

    Hello shovelhead,

    hat's really a great offer you do me!
    But isn't it too much work?
    She needs for now 1,,2,3,4 ande 5 and in the future she wants to continue cutting these numbers...

    maybe if you give me a more detiled description of how to do it I can try again.

    But if it is easy for you I can't turn down your offer!!!!!!!!!!!!

    maybe we can help you with something else?

    Someday, and that day may never come,

    I will call upon you to do a service for me. But until that day, accept this justice as a gift on my daughter's wedding day.

    Will have it to you by then!

    Size of number!

    Dear shovelhead,

    I almost forgot to say: the numbers will be cut at 15 cm.

    Maybe you need to know that according to the amount of pixels the image has so it can be made bigger to print/cut it in the right size..........

    Lot's of greetings Rose

    BMP?

    Hi shovelhead,

    Is that what you made: already now?
    That's fast! The only problem is if I want to make this 15 cm then it isn't sharp enough to print/cut!

    Is it possible with more pixels?

    soory and thanx Rose:rolleyes:
