    Default Need artist to complete font.

    I have a font that I need made, the complete alphabet (caps and lower) numbers (0-9) and basic punctuation (.,-?&#@ ( ) )

    I think a TTF would be the best (that's scalable, right?)

    PM if interested.

    I do have samples of the original print/letters. They are from the 40's and long out of copyright. No modern computer front is is close.

    tons of work goes into making a complete, properly working font - therefore, it should cost tons of money. do you need a full font? post an image.

    another option is to just use the KISS font.

    No, there is no other option. I need to use this specific (originally hand lettered) font. If using 'Ariel' was acceptable I would do so.

    A font editor makes a lot of the scut work easy. If you try and bang it out in Illustrator or a generic app then yeah, it might be hard. I can get one letter in about 5 minutes with a mouse, and I would buy a proper digitizer before I spend 'a ton of money' because it is relatively simple with the proper app and hardware.

    If you'd like to get specifics and make a bid, PM me for details.

    Even if you have the entire typeface fully digitized in vector format... a ton of work still goes in to making it a complete, bug free, working font. So if you need that, in addition to creating the actual vector shapes, done by someone who knows what they are doing. It's going to cost a ton of money.

    I posted the font on Typophile and they were the ones who said it was most likely hand drawn.

    Fontforge does SVG, Postscript, Truetype, and about a dozen others. For free.

    I can bang out a letter in about 20 minutes, but I'd rather just pay someone *who knows what they are doing* and knows that this is quite easy, just time consuming.
