Not Graphite. I am creating a visual presentation about engineers and am trying to find a font that mirrors what would be written on a blue-print or design. My father was a mechanical engineer and I would love to replicate how he would write. It is very similar to Graphite but the horizontal strokes must be horizontal and not going up to the right. I've googled font descriptions but am having no luck, so I thought I would try the hive mind. It seems very specific to engineers and not architects.
I found this wonderful font and I can't figure out what type it is. Can you help? [more inside]
Can anyone identify the font used to spell out 'Beach Party'? Bonus points if it is available for free somewhere! Gratzi
At the bottom of this blog post is a sign that says "If you ate today, THANK A FARMER." Can you name the font, please? [more inside]
A friend is trying to remember the name of the font she used in her logo. Do any of you recognize it? I tried Identifont and WhatTheFont but had no luck. [more inside]
Let's say I wanted my Mac to be able to display every Unicode character. I mean EVERY character. Not just the useful ones. I want Ancient Greek Musical Notation (U+1D200..U+1D24F). Or Pau Cin Hau (U+11AC0–U+11AFF), a script created by and named after the 19th-century founder of a religion in Northwest Myanmar. Or the undeciphered glyphs engraved on the Phaistos Disc (U+101D0..U+101FF). How can I accomplish my goal while doing the least work sourcing and installing fonts? [more inside]
I'm feeling sheepish about asking this, but there's an apparent institutional memory problem and a deadline to deal with. So: can you specifically identify the fonts used for the header text and for the logo in this image? [more inside]
Trying to identify this typeface for a project. I keep getting close, but no cigar. Hope me? Sample. (It's all I've got to match to.)
My name is A R N I E. However, when typed on a computer it often looks like Arnie and lately a LOT of people are having trouble, thinking it's A M I E I use Gmail primarily and with that comes a limited selection of fonts, but how can I format my name so that it comes through clearly but still be unobtrusive as a signature?
Would anyone be able to help me identify this font here? No luck scouring the internet. Thank you!
What are the fonts and specs used in the Village Voice? Specifically those for the body copy and headers? Those are close to a look we want, but want to change a few things, however we can't figure what the body copy font is.
I'm looking for a typeface that is preferably condensed, bold, and most importantly one where the "S" and the "2" are mirrored (or at least very similar). If it is a high-end typeface, all the better. Ideas?
Given the plethora of handwriting fonts online, I'd like to find a one that has the same feel as library hand. I'm aware of the Nathan Hauenstei font but am interested in other possibilities. Any suggestions?
What font is used in the logo of the Royal Navy of the United Kingdom? Obviously the A is custom, but what's the rest of it? The R has a straight leg and the O is circular. It's not any of the usual suspects (Helvetica, Frutiger, Akzidenz-Grotesk, Gill Sans). It's almost Gotham Black, but not quite, and it's driving me nuts! Help!
I am interested in making a small stamp with a letter Q to use to monogram clothing items. I don't like any of the ones I've seen with an alphabet set. Do you have a typeface with a nice letter Q, either capital or miniscule? I want it to be recognizable/readable and I tend to prefer more modern fonts but I'm open to everything.
I am editing a booklet that will contain text at approximately the same size as Times New Roman 9 pt. I'm wondering if there is some other font that is generally accepted to be more (or most) legible at the equivalent size. [more inside]
My friend recently started watching Transparent on Amazon, and she mentioned that the font used for the credits looks so familiar, like from some '80s TV show, and it's really been bugging her that she can't remember what other show it looks like. She showed me a screencap and I can't figure it out either, and now it's bugging me! Anyone know what '80s (or late '70s possibly?) TV show also used this font, or one very similar to it? Thanks in advance!
I was looking for a comprehensive resource that would explain the correct way of using a designer typeface in a project (for a small company or even a multi-national one). How do we buy it, what kind of usage rights can we obtain, how would a typeface designer even know that one of their fonts was illegally used, ... Basically everything in terms of our rights and the designer rights.
I'd like to use a custom font in the emails I send out. I have a particular font in mind and own the webfont files for that typeface. The font is not available on Google Webfonts. [more inside]
A few years ago, I created this logo for one of my websites. I'm getting ready to remodel the website and want to use the same font when I redesign the logo -- only I can't remember which font this is, and I can't find anything similar. Can you tell me what font this is?
Does anyone know the script font used on these invitations? Thanks
I like this font rather a lot, and would like to find a decently high resolution version for a small project. Don't need ttf files, but do need letters too! [more inside]
Calling graphic artists: I have a microfilm-derived copy of a newspaper article from 1873. The copy is poor quality, to the point where it's hard to read. I don't think any sort of simple image processing is going to fix it. I'd like to re-create the article from scratch, but I have very little experience in this area. [more inside]

Looking for a typeface for a wellness/holistic medicine practice. I know that Papyrus font is a cliche, but it's an effective visual shorthand for this kind of business. Are there other fonts that are less overused, but would still convey or fit with that vibe of green, organic, holistic, natural? [more inside]
I've extracted a .otf font from my Kobo Touch. I'd like to install it on Windows, but Windows can't handle it and neither can any of the font editing programmes I've downloaded. I believe that the file contains multibyte characters. I have tried right clicking and choosing install. I've tried font forge, and several other font related applications. I just get varying error messages saying that it's not a valid font file, despite it working on the Kobo. If it's relevant, the font is Gothic MB101. I'm running Windows 7 - what do I need to do to install this font?
Font Book isn't burly enough to handle my thousands of fonts, and it has now crashed twice. Its default of loading fonts as active contributes to its crashing, I believe. (I've taken it to the Apple Store, etc., so please don't tell me how to get Font Book to work.) I've committed to buying some new font software. I'm currently looking at FontExplorerX Pro and Suitcase Fusion. Please share your advice on those two, or any other font management systems that are effective and not crazy expensive. Thank you! (I used to use suitcase back in the oughts. Obviously the world is a different place.)
I'm at a loss - here is a rough sketch that I want to create in Photoshop but I just can't decide on a lovely font to use? My inspiration came from these images, here, and here. I know those were handlettered but font lovers, what do you recommend? We will be using Cinzel Regular as the primary font on the wedding invitations.
What is this awesome old poster font? I am absolutely certain that I've seen this font available today, but I don't remember where. No dice on either Identifont or What The Font - Can Mefi help?
I haven't had any luck identifying this through the WhatTheFont! automagical service nor the Identifont step-by-step quiz so now I bring it to you. What's the typeface used in this old GATOR$ sign?
I have access to an old Toshiba 386 PC (T2000Sx) with an extremely unusual VGA system font; which I would like to recover as a font file and document in a web site. How can I write a program which reads the font data from VGA memory and writes it to the floppy? [more inside]

Typographers of mefi, what is the name of this awesome font? You're my only hope. Thanks!
This screen appears in the first sound film in the Irish language, Oidhche Sheanchais, filmed in 1935. A colleague of mine would like to identify the typeface used for the titles, and the online typeface-identifying sites have struck out. Can any MeFite identify it?
I'm vector-izing this header plate from an old edition of my labor union's newspaper for use in future editions. Obviously I'll be tracing the hand-lettering of "Industrial Worker", but I'd like to find a font that matches as closely as possible the sans serif lettering used for "Labor Produces all Wealth..." and the slogans on the banners.
I really like the font titled Hominis. I'd love to know what historical era the style belongs to--Victorian?--as well as what typeface it might have been modeled after, if it doesn't seem original. (I attempted to contact the designer, but was unsuccessful.) Thanks in advance.
Hoping that the fab font people on here might be able to help me out. I was wondering if anyone can identify the font used for the title in the Broadchurch tv series? We are currently branding our music company, and this is EXACTLY the sort of font we have been searching for. I have done some poking around, but I can't find a listing for that particular font. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
So the long and short of it is, I'm pretty sure that Meiryo UI is messed up or missing or something, and instead Office 2011 on my Mac has decided that it'd be totally cool to use Mart Futomaru Gothic instead for most Japanese text display, including all over Excel. Is there some way to reinstall just the font(s) or maybe clear the Office font cache?
What does this say? Trying to make out the characters in the second line of text here: Stoneware Jar. Also, is there a third line?
Approximately how old is this sign, and what font is it? The stucco facade could date from as early as the 1920s, but the lettering on the signs looks to my untrained eye to be from the 70s or later.

I'm looking for a dingbats font for a specific purpose. I'm creating a book of numbered paragraphs, and the number is above each paragraph in an elegant display font (Copperplate). On each side of the number, I'd like to put a fairly simple, unobtrusive, horizontal dingbat. This could be done with dingbats that are mirror images of each other. It could be as simple as a brush stroke that's heavier on the left or right, with the heavy ends near the number. Or it could be something else. I'm not looking for anything too leafy or flowery or pretty or Victorian. Do you know of a dingbats font like this that's downloadable for free? [more inside]
