Only the new Barbie is availabe - we think this one was handlettered
You may want to read what others have said (on another forum)...
But I enjoy them - it took me a long while to get use to what was going on...
Frankly, ey, that forum scares the bejeezus out of me. I prefer the (relatively) docile eggheads here...and I mean that in a good way.
That board is a bit different. The majority of people on it are looking for free fonts. There are many young adults, college students, HS students, etc. from all over world. I have not been in touch with music in years - nor have I seen their type of type treatment in the professional world.
Here we tend to have professionals and folks who understand that the font they want - will most likely be a commercial/non-gratis font. Sometimes they really do need the help of a true type-lover to have their questions met.
The regulars over there are tired of people not helping themselves. So many of the same questions are asked - it feels like - on a daily basis. How many times can we tell folks that Catull is the font that Google is in - and yes, it’s from Berthold, and yes, you must pay for it...
And think about it - I've been answering more of the free-font info here... I would never have known those fonts if it weren't for that forum... :-)
Never too old to learn - and as long as I can read....
P.S. Jan, now that you can switch your name - how about Jandotcom... that way we know its you :-) the first Jan@*com! or just Jan....
Chris told me what he was going to do...the post at the top of the forum, so he said to jump on jan*.com before the other Jan and thus jan*.com could stay as me...uh...mine.
Re: the dafont forum...I do go and read things there...but it is a much younger, wilder crowd! BTW: I think you are a great moderator there.
and I'm chopped liver here???
The owner made me a moderator - before I had 10 messages up there - I think he already knew me from here. They are mostly French, and well, I'll just say English is not their native language... they needed someone with type experience and a grasp of English. They have told me I do have something to offer - go figure....
Font identified as eps.
This font doesn't have the star over the “i” but as far as that goes it’s on. Hope it works
Encapsulated PostScript -- usually “pictures” -- art
.bmap, .scr, .suit, .ttf -- those are fonts (or parts of fonts)
They are similar to JPEG’s, which most people are more familiar with.
An EPS (or .eps as you see the attachment on a document) is just one of several formats that carry all the info you need to open up the document and use it.
In the case of the Brands of the World site, those EPS’s are line drawings (vector artwork), which makes them easy to use.
Font identified as Barbie.
Case marked solved.
Three things. First, some of those links are 257 days old. Second, the dafont.com forum was shut down when they discovered it was too easy to hack into. Finally, the last person to post gave a bogus link.
