    or whatever it is you need to do this....


    ...i need an S, A and an N, all in lower case in the same font as a fire exit sign

    ...a bit random i know...

    i would say "thanks in advance" but i seriously doubt anyone will do it...

    :D

    You could get away with using the font Arial for that.

    Size looks about 100pt and set the tracking to about -15/20 if you're using photoshop.

    Helvetica maybe?

    Most signs are.

    Yeah it is, trouble is I don't think most PCs have it pre installed.

    Ah, gotcha. As you say, arial is pretty close.

    yhup, i dont have Helvetica... and i just tried Airal, it's ok... but the letters are a little too thin :-S

    Edit: put to instead of too, pissed myself off.

    You don't say what size you want the letters, in what format, colour, etc...

    :-S erm, i want to put them on that sign, so white, that size, and whatever format i can use to put them onto that sign....

    ...sorry, i dont know much.
  • Deleted user 31 July 2008 13:21:35
    On that jpg of that sign? Is that jpg scaled or is that the size it will be?

    Which letters are you going to be replacing? Probably easier to ask someone to just do the replacement for you as well to be honest because otherwise you're going to need to cut out the white letters in Photoshop and paste them in yourself etc. Hassle.

    I think MS UI Gothic (Vista only right?) is even closer than Arial.

    Can't you just clone out the words completely, then redo the entire text in Arial Bold?
    Doubt anyone will really notice / care if the font's slightly different.

    Maybe you're nearly sorted now though...

    This is extremely silly but maybe we could do a "Paste your favourite monster" thread? Bonus points for using MS Paint.
