I'm looking for a font named GOUDY HVY FACE - Can I get a True Type version
from you?

Thanks.

Andy

This is a did-ya-know. Did you know that the creator of the Goudy style of
fonts was named Frederic Goudy -- he was a bookkeeper. Sadly, Goudy HVY Face
must be a rare font.... I have Goudy Old Style, you can try http://www.fontfreak.com
and see if it's there.

And I have Goudy Stout, if that helps.  I wonder how many styles of
the Goudy design there are?

No, I didn't know.

fontfreak.com doesn't have any Goudy fonts.

Anybody else?

Thanks!

Yeah andy, tell us what you need it for, and why Goudy was speced
This isn't any different from picking rail-to-rail opamps, do you need
a sexy 7 with a descender or a double-cross W or what?

It's used for the words "Pocket Mechanic" on this boat.

FWIW, I have permission from the boat owner to duplicate the graphics.  The
guy who cut the vinyl used the font mentioned in the first post.

Thanks.

Copyright often works on the type *name*.  If you're a font designer, and
you want for more people to buy your stuff, then you take an old,
established font, tweak it a bit, then re-release it under a new name.

If you have $40 in your pocket, buy Corel Office 7 -- it comes with 1000
fonts, and a nice booklet listing fonts by style and obvious use, in
addition to name.  (I like the apps and the 10,000-piece clipart library
too.)

I'm working on a model of this.  I need it to cut the vinyl.  The guy who
did the original graphics said that this is the font name that was used.

Thanks.

Ahh, i think i see the problem... that isnt goudy.

Goudy capitals have serifs.  (goudy stout is ugly) The font on the
boat is without serifs (sans serif).  You have a fat helvetica style
here.

Try blowing up the text to a big point size using Microsoft Word
or one of the word processors.

So I learned.  I _found_ the font the guy told me he used.  Now I want to
smack him!

>You have a fat helvetica style here.

Yes, it looks like you're right!  Only problem is... I only have std and
skinny helv on my machine :-(

You (ANYBODY??!!) have a Helv Fat one in True Type?

Thanks!

Thanks Peter, but it turns out they aren't Goudy after all.  Just a nice,
fat Helvetica.  You have Helvetica Fat? (I don't know the correct name).

I have Goudy Heavyface in plain and italic versions. However, they're type 1
fonts, and part of the Adobe library. Now I'm not saying that you should do
this, but if you look at some of the 'warez' groups and web sites, every now
and then you can find the entire library up for grabs. Again, I'm not
suggesting that you do it, but .....

Andy,

I have the font you asked for in Adobe postscript
format. But I tell you what... if you can't find
it anywhere else, email me direct and I will
run it through a converter that will produce
a TrueType version.

Thanks, but I located the font I need.  Several other guys on the list had it.

One of these days I'll get back to you about Heidi, and about the couple
you had counseling for.  She wouldn't heed it, he did.  Unfortunately it
takes two :-(
