    Rich,

    Thanks for the suggestion, I have recently worked on hand painting with a compass and paint onto film text work, which is funky for certain pieces.. the compass gives a jagged look, as opposed to a brush... anyways, I just need the red sox type font for a non poster one off thing... but Id like to make my own fonts like . I think its pretty cool when you can do this, it ads more induviduality.

    i live in boston and didn't know the sox had a font like that. i always associate the dodgers with having a font like the one you speak of. unless you're creating entire fonts i'd use adobe illustrator to trace the letterforms you need.

    I hear Font Lab is a good program as well. I have both but haven't messed around w/ either enough to give you a "this over that" review.
