It's exactly like the one shown below, that says "Your Macintosh Superstore!", it's either called Jester or Toledo. I think I had Jester...I love that font. E-mail is danny6285@earthlink.net







Thanks a lot,

    I don't know about This1Guy's font, but I've got something really close to Apple's Garamond font. I'll e-mail it to you once I stuff it...

    This is equivalent to piracy, and this thread should be locked.



    As a designer and someone whose living depends on the hope that others will be honest enough not to steal or copy the work that I do, I should remind you that the artists who create the fonts you steal aren't like millionare musicians who you don't think will be hurt.



    Don't steal fonts.

    :confused:



    I honestly have never heard of someone paying for a font...I've been commiting crimes without knowing it!

    Then go download something from there.



    Picture this: Two lemonade stands on the street. One selling orange lemonade for ¢50 per cup because its his only job and one giving away free lemon lemonade because he just like to give away free lemonade. You come walking down the street and see those two stands. You really like orenge lemonade so you go to the orange one and take a cup of lemonade but without paying. The owner get mad at you and you say "Hey I can get free lemon lemonade over there so I don´t see why I should pay you". Do you think that is fair? I don´t and neither does the law. The one making a living from selling lemonade shouldn´t suffer just because someone else is giving it away. Go drink the free lemonade if you like that but pay if you want the commercial one. Should Apple give away OsX just because Linux exist?

    Analogies are always flawed. How about this?



    If AbiWord (free) is sufficient for you, would you feel morally obligated for fork over a few hundred dollars to Microsoft for Word?

    starfleetx, i think his point is this:

    if i want to make typefaces and give them away, that's my decision, and millions of people can come and download them from my site, but if i want to create typefaces and sell them, then people should buy them. otherwise they are stealing. if you download a free typeface from my site, and your best friend wants it, he should go to my site and download it (who knows what else he may find anyway?). if you buy a typeface from me and your best friend wants it, you should tell him to go to my site, and then pull out his credit card.



    designers work very hard to make quality typefaces. designers are not rich. you should support them.



    for what it's worth, that's my 2¢.

    Yes if that was what I wanted. If AbiWord was good enough I would not buy MS Word of course but if I needed it I would feel obligated to hand over my money to MS. Things are never too expensive but sometimes they cost more than they are worth to you and then you find alternatives (this doesn´t apply to fundamental non replaceable things like clean water, education, food aso as Adam Smith also admitted).



    PS: Sorry if my analogies doesn´t always work or are understandable.

    Excuse me? First of all, I somehow doubt that "millions" of people are stealing fonts. Most people never bother to go beyond the fonts that come with the computer (which, this may come as a shock to you, APPLE PAID FOR, so that you can use).



    Luckily for you, the font you want is called Jester, it is a free font, and I found it in about five seconds by typing in "Jester font" at Google. You can find it <a href="http://www.momscorner4kids.com/fonts/jester.htm"; target="_blank">here</a>



    The piracy comment was directed towards Macintosh. The font that Apple uses was designed for them and you couldn't purchase a license to use if you wanted to. A close facsimile is ITC Garamond Light Condensed, which can be purchased for under $30 at the <a href="http://www.adobe.com:80/type/browser/F/GARI/F_GARI-70003000.html"; target="_blank">Adobe Type Library</a>.



    I'm not sure where people got the idea that there is a magical font fairy creating typefaces for us all to use freely, but the reality is that hard working, (usually) underpaid designers and typographers create these typefaces. Show a little respect for what they do, and shell out the cash. Most of the fonts you can buy from Adobe or myfonts.com are around $30.



    If you don't want to pay, there are fre alternatives and you should use them. Just because you don't feel like paying isn't an excuse for theft.





    (edit: good news, Macintosh. I looked at myfonts.com for you, and they sell ITC Garamond Light Condensed for even cheaper, $21.00. It's at <a href="http://www.myfonts.com/PurchaseOptions?familyid=3807&id[]=10508"; target="_blank">http://www.myfonts.com/PurchaseOptions?familyid=3807&id[]=10508</a>; .)

    People's computers come with free fonts pre-installed, and when they install a word process (or MS Office) more fonts get installed for free, and when they install art or layout or printing programs more fonts get installed for free. So most people are floating in this massive flood of free fonts, and they're so used to think of fonts as these plentiful, free computer thingies that it never even crosses their mind that fonts might COST something.



    It's like web browsers -- since Netscape and IE and now Opera and OmniWeb all have free versions, 99.9% of people think of browsers as being free, and would never think of paying $30 to register OmniWeb when they could just use IE or Mozilla or whatever for free.



    I think there's a difference between knowingly copying your buddy's Photoshop disk (which everybody knows has a cost and is a retail product) and somebody asking for a copy of some font they've seen. Not that it's OK to freely trade commercial fonts -- that's not what I'm saying at all -- just that when people talk about fonts, they don't think about them the same way as software.

    Sizzle you hit the nail on the head.



    You get a lot of free stuff on your computer, the internet, napster, hotline..... Everyone gets the "Why Pay" mentality. People don't think twice about taking something for free on the internet. Would you do the same thing at a grocery store? Probably not. <img src="graemlins/surprised.gif" border="0" alt="[Surprised]" />

    I hear what you're saying, sizzle chest.



    I've done typography, and lemme tell you, it's fun, but tedious. It takes weeks to design a font...months to perfect it. The fact that a font looks or works so well is just a testament to how much a designer put into it.



    So, for those of you who now know better, please don't steal your fonts. The people who design them are incredibly talented and hard-working people, and if you want to use their work, they deserve your recompense. Think of it as a collaboration between you and the designer, not just paying for some stupid tool that you could get for free anyway.

    I used to do a lot of font design, and still delve into Fontographer from time to time (usually to create a font with a special character or a "logo" character).



    In the mid-nineties I considered starting a font design business, and even talked to some people at several small font foundries. I also talked to a guy who had been distributing his own (mostly freeware) fonts about possibly partnering with me. What we determined was that unless you worked REALLY hard and became one of the more recognized and successful font design companies, there was just no way to sell enough of your fonts to make it worth your time.



    The only people who regularly pay for fonts, especially higher priced fonts, are design houses, ad agencies, creative boutiques, and the art departments at magazines, book publishers, record labels, and movie studios. So the model that seems to work for a few font foundries is to sell a small number of licenses of each font at a pretty high price. But if you're not one of those "chic" font houses, good luck selling more than a couple of dozen licenses.



    I really do believe that font design is an art, but unfortunately the primary tool used for font design has made it really easy for people to glut the market with cheap & plentiful fonts, and thus create the impression that fonts should ONLY be free. It's hard for 99.9% of people to see the benefit of buying Adobe Helvetica instead of a freebie knockoff that's just barely different.

    I just realized that I made two consecutive posts that both used the phrase "99.9% of people."



    OK, change that second one to "99.75% of people" for the sake of variety, would you?

    Indeed. I also don't like the companies that change a font just barely and then have CDs with thousands of those ripoff fonts for $5 or so.

    and unfortunately, under US law, that is legal

    <img src="graemlins/bugeye.gif" border="0" alt="[Skeptical]" />



    and sizzlechest, i understand your point, but the fonts that magically appear on peoples computers when they install software aren't free, they paid for them with the license to their software (assuming you paid for it, but that's another argument.)



    and i would like to point out, just for pointing out's sake that there is usually a difference between free fonts and fonts that are not free. and that difference is called quality.



    and another thing to point out for pointing out's sake. if you use a font without paying for it, it is illegal and you can be sued.
