This sounds like a no-brainer, but did you try to send e-mail to Daniel at both the account shown in his profile, and the one in the contact information on his blogspot page, (on the right hand side, about mid page?). That one's more likely to be in current use.

As if the pre installed fonts change much from one Windows OS to the next...

Looking for the font Copperplate

Hey all,

I was wondering if anyone knows if the font Copperplate is available on I have searched for it with no luck. If anyone knows of where I could find the font or a similar font to Copperplate please let me know. Thanks in advance.



Did you check in your operating system? There are two weights in the XP standard fonts.

Dissing 100% Free fonts isn't cool, son. Maybe you should stick with the garbage fonts that have a licensing fee for commercial use, but aren't worth the disk space that the .zips fill.

metaphasebrothel: I want to contact them so that I can donate because this font is listed as donationware, and also to get in writing that they are really OK with me making money off their font. koeiekat: I have no idea what you are talking about...

Good Bye Lullaby is not Donationware. Donationware means that you have to pay for commercial use, but the user determines the amount. This font is 100% Free, with the option of making a donation to the author.

koeiekat is suggesting that SBA Factory doesn't actually design the fonts they release, they 'borrow' from other designers.

Why would you need to contact them? The font is 100% Free. Just use it, and perform a random act of kindness for a stranger, like the designer did for you.

1) Click the link near the tom, upper left, for Themes.

2) Click on the link for the category you want to browse.

3) Near the top of the page, far right, beside the Submit button, is a link named More Options. Click it.

4) Put check marks in the boxes for 'Public Domain/ GPL' and '100 Free' The displayed results will show the fonts that you can use without having to pay for a commercial use license.

Identified font: Impact Label

She may also have meant free for commercial use fonts. Derika was asking about this on behalf of a friend, who 'maybe ... can't afford to purchase a commercial use font right at the moment.' That doesn't necessarily mean that Derika's friend wants to use flourishes from a commercial font, without purchasing a license. It does mean that she would like to have some fleuron fonts that can be downloaded for free. You may be correct, but you are not necessarily correct. I just don't you to have to use the head banging smiley again, when one of your pontifications has been proven false.

You just aren't as fluent in North American vaguespeak as I am, kat. I think Derika just wants some ornaments that can be downloaded for free, but her syntax is imprecise, hence confusion is caused among those to whom North American English is not their first language.

Derika, try looking though the Dingbats -> Shapes Theme, here at DaFont: There are a lot of free or free for personal use fonts with these sorts of decorative elements, often referred to as flourishes or fleurons.

It looks a lot like Georgia or Bookman Old Style, which you should alread have installed as standard fonts in your Windows operating system.

What you download from DaFont is a compressed archive, called a .zip file. You need to open the .zip file, extract the files inside, and install the font file(s) that are in the .zip.

Try right clicking on the .zip, select the 'Extract' option from the menu, and follow the instructions to access the files inside.

.jpeg is the image equivalent of a 64 kbit/sec .mp3 audio file.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say no one will help you with this request. No one could. No one would, if they could.

This is what your image looks like at eight times enlargement:

Besides, why would someone use their time to make a font of someone else' design, because you want it?

Does anyone know which font matches, or most closely resembles the lettering on the Cincinnati Reds uniforms? It looks to me like a Font Mesa or LHF design.

Is the uniform number from the same font?

Why, downunder, do you think that newspapers are using serifs? Why are books printed with serifs? Why are most of all magazines printed using serifs? That is because of readability. So TaranakiCathedral, seriously consider a serif.
Here text in the Helvetica, 16pt leading 0.2%.

Yes, indeed, it does look a bit dense and it is easy to lose your place. But that is common with many sans serifs which only allow for narrow columns.

To see what happens with a serif, here an example with a very common font that also came with your Mac, the Garamond. The small x-height of this type allows for less leading and a larger size to occupy the same space as the Helvetica example above, 18 point, 10% leading. One note, Garamond does not really work well on screen. This superstar crys out for paper and ink.

I think you really should try this and then look at the results in the poorly lit church.


Readers, take note of the fact that thekat DOES provide clear, informed and direct answers, when a clear, informed and direct question is asked. It's only when someone makes a vague, obtuse, "touchy-feely" inquiry, where a game of 20 questions needs to be played before the true nature of the question can be determined, that he acts like a dick.

Jun 16, 2014 at 16:33  [reply]  Question about mixing fonts.

Glyph: A letter, number, symbol, punctuation mark or picture contained in a font file, generated by depressing a specific key on the keyboard, or some sequence or combination of keys on the keyboard.

.ttf: True type font. The files with the icon that looks like two T's on a piece of paper, with the upper right hand corner folded back. An icon is a little picture that represents a file. It's the thing you pull, when you drag and drop something.

.otf: Open Type font. The icon looks the same as for the true type font. except there's a letter O in the middle, instead of two T's.

As for which fonts go together, you're probably best off to browse through the Font Identification forum. There are tens of thousands of text samples, many of which have been identified by name.

Rather than asking people for their suggestions, you could start by looking at fonts other people have shown interest in, identify some that interest you, and then ask an informed question like "Which fonts would go well with Feinen Light or Hiroshige Book"?, instead of asking a question like 'What kind of food should one eat, while drinking wine'?
