    I've even used it before for a party invite but for the life of me cannot remember its name, need it for another job (not for work). It's not Curlz or Rebecca.

    Interesting font. Let me have a check in my Suitcase font collection.


    edit: nope. but came close with two. WhimsyICG and Brown Cow.
    Could it be a custom font?

    Nope, 'cos I've used it before but it was a while ago. Have seen it used elsewhere as well.

    What's that site where you can identify typefaces? Somebody here in the office mentioned one where you can upload a scan.

    Maybe I should do some Googling....

    There's Identifont.com that asks questions about certain letters so you can identify or rule some out.

    Identifont wasn't much help... :(

    Thanks for looking, Lacero.

    I always thought it was a version of Remedy – looking at the Emigre webpage though, looks like I'm wrong. Similar, but not quite there...

    That site has been mentioned on the board here before in other threads that sought to identify a font. I'll search when I get a chance.

    Good luck BV

    EDIT: Here's one WhatTheFont

    I thought it was Jokerman at first, but I'm thinking of the 'Cold Feet' typeface.

    Nope, got sidetracked. Registered on the board you suggested, then had to go to a meeting, then a working lunch, then had to work on something else to get off to press that afternoon... you get the idea.

    There's no immediate urgency -- I'll probably post it later today or tomorrow.

    But many thanks for the link, iGav. :)

    I just tried that with an edited version of BV's image (to a white background) and it didn't come up with a match.

    Sorry.

    BV - No luck on WhatTheFont, I cut out the letters in "friday" in Photoshop, set them to a white background and it still couldn't identify the font. Sorry, I was SURE that was going to find it but I guess not. :(

    Cheers guys for the recent tips & help. This little project has now gone on the backburner — thought I would dig out this thread when I come to address the issue again just after Xmas.

    What is frustrating is knowing I have it somewhere on the Mac at home.
    (no, my home font collection is not visually indexed :eek:)

    Are you particularly attached to this font BV?
    Comic Sans might be a good alternative. :p
