    I am trying to find a free "enclosed letter" font for use in a wedding bulletin (to indicate where the pastor, congregation, bride and groom speak using 'P', 'C', 'B' and 'G'). By "enclosed letter" I mean where the character is inversed against a rounded-rectangle; Mac OS X includes a font similar to this for numbers. I am looking for letters.

    Does anyone have a recommendation? I checked the guides for free fonts and was not able to find something like this.

    Do you have a sample of this at all? I'm confused. :confused:

    Thanks Jessica. I have attached a sample (see the "P" and "C" on the left).

    Oh, gosh google is not my friend on this one. Have you tried What the Font? Sometimes it is helpful.

    By the way I did it and it worked out quite well. Try it because it won't let me post the results url here.

    If you go to Character palette > Symbols - under there you'll find Enclosed Letters. Scroll past all the oriental enclosed letters and you'll find what you want. There's a selection of fonts as enclosed letters.

    Thanks everyone.

    Is that dependent on the fonts I have installed? I tried searching the Character palette but only found enclosed numbers and enclosed asian characters. I will check again this evening, but the only fonts I have are those that (1) came with Tiger or installed with (2) MS Office 2004 or (3) iWork '08.

    I'm not sure, I knew I had seen them there and went looking. There's a lot of oriental enclosed letters and you have to scroll past them before coming to the ones you need.Even then a lot of them have oriental names. I'm enclosing a screen shot - hope it helps.
