Can't find the font, it might be handmade as part of the logo design??
...but I can email you this logo in EPS:

All you'll have to do is steal the letters to write "communications company"
You have most of the letters except for the T and Y which aren't the hardest to recreate.

I was making the repro of the "inside coindoor stickers" from the zaccaria coindoor, and i asked you guys for TTF advice.
forget my previous post, here is the deal...

i found a repro JPG file and posted the lettertype from that in a previous post.
after looking at it, i realised that i dont like the font, and i did not remember it like this, so i went up the attic where i have a spare coindoor with the stickers and took them out for "archiving"  ;D




i placed them on a clean sheet of paper, and pulled the scanner out..
 



The font in the one from my coindoor is indeed different, and i think the guy who did them before just took a font
Here the shots of the one's that i found on the net:




and the second




Here is the scan of mine:  :P




as you can see its different, and i like this font more to be honest, so i will use that  8)




I did already some vectoring on the coinmech sticker, but i dont know if i wwant to use that now, or just start again with the original scans..
i am leaning towarts option 2, what you guys think ?

I adjusted it a bit, and its good enough for me.
You are on the winning hand chris , lets see if you can also name the font of the word "ZACCARIA" :



At first i thought it was Arial bold, but thats a bit different.., so thats not it..

AK11 bold extended.
I was lucky 'cause it was the first one in my list of fat font.
Weird that they don not use the "official" zacc logo font (AG Schoolbook medium alternate).

 ;D
All I would do all day long would be providing font names and Etienne would take care of all the hard work (layout, vectorising + electronic repairs).
That sounds like an ideal job (for me) !

So....do we already know which font the embossed letters of the serial number on the Atari SW stickers are ?  ;D ;D ;D ;D

The punches I've seen so far are not the right font...

it sure does sounds good for you  ;) , but i am bad at recognizing fonts..
(and also too lazy to search good  ;D)

and don't forget contacting printers, searching for right material, etc etc etc  :P

Anyway, perfect collaboration here !
