I'm looking for either a font that simulates the logo of the CRUNK!!! energy drink, or a way to fiddle with an existing font in such a way as to emulate it. For reference here is the logo. It'd need the whole alphabet, but punctuation and lower case isn't required.

Good typeface for a point-of-sale receipt printer?

Does anyone have suggestions for a good typeface for a point-of-sale receipt printer? I have a project to design messages printed on the bottom of a cash register receipt. These are B&W thermal printers, about 200-250 DPI. The text is 6-12 points. We're going primarily for readability and cleanliness and we're happy to pay for quality. Before we go with what we already have (Verdana, Arial, etc.), we'd love suggestions for what might be better.
