Font identification
November 8, 2011 8:57 AM   Subscribe

I would like to identify and/or locate the fonts used in this label so I can create something similar. This design was a free download to use with a Martha Stewart recipe but I'd like to tweak it a bit for my own use. I dig the fonts, though! Close up of font can be seen here. The downloadable pdf is here.

Edwardian Script is the closest I can think of for the smaller text.

Also, I think the all-caps is Century.

Do you think the dots are added afterward then?

Yes, most likely. The lines can be done like this, and if made in separate layers, simply moved layer-by-layer onto each letter. You could use "warp layer" for the O.

The script font is Adobe Bickham Script Pro.

Can't identify the font itself but this website has a lot of really cool fonts--I'm sure you could find something similar, especially under the Fancy > Retro section.

The main font, according to What The Font's algorithm, is Hoefler Text Black, with the dots added afterwards. Looks good to me. It agrees about Bickham Script, too.

A decent freeware script might be something like England Hand. The Script section on FontSquirrel has some other decent options.

For the serif font, have a look at the bold variant of Lora.

Thank you everyone! "What the font!" --what a great resource. I think I can recreate what I'm looking for with these suggestions.
