"Rude Rams" uncial style caps / marker script "SSgt Westley Calloway"

AfterburnerDecals's picture

I have 2 things hanging me up, and I'm hoping somebody can help out.
This is the first: RUDE RAMS....I have been looking for days and days w/o luck.

This is the next one. Its called MARKER ACCT.AK.REV.D and is included in a Gerber Scientific Products stencil plotter/cutter, but the font is nowhere else to be found. I can use something close, but that has turned useless as well.

Thanks a ton!

Mike F or Renko may confirm this but I think the one from the image below is Sanford (came from Silver Graphics, long defunct). Here is a MyFonts search with more info.

Aww, Marcelo, who am I to confirm this? Thanks for the confidence, but, you know, you ID'd so much which I never would have …
So Scott, you better believe this man. He is almost never wrong.

Lol, so this is an "official" quest, huh? I'm coming up with squat for unical that comes close, same for marker. I can draw them by hand in Corel, but I really hate that. Why can't they stick to Amarillo USAF?

Any more leads are hugely appreciated!

I think the RUDE RAMS lettering looks like a blend of a Chancery style, like Zapf Chancery (which is pretty close) or Cataneo Swash, with the M from a Mediaeval font like Omnia. Apply a little customizing of the terminals to make the look unified, and voilá.

I think both fonts come from a comic book lettering background, possibly Blambot or Comicraft.

Git....called Free Hand Acct. Its a GSP font in their stencil plotter....I just can't get access to it grrrr. Same with that marker font.

Drawing it by hand is going to suuuuck.

Ahh ... I should have gotten this one. That 'A', though, was leading me in the freebie or, as Yves said, the comic lettering direction. But nay ...

Freehand was a pre-1912 ATF typeface. I know of three digital versions, but the most readily available would be Nick Curtis's Duly Noted.

Oh, and I want to add a definite confirmation that the other font is, as Marcelo stated (and ought to get credit for) Silver Graphics' 'Sanford'.

Any clues as to where I might find Sanford, or something similar. I spent last nite drawing RUDE RAMS by hand, and REALLY don't want to do it againt just for aircraft crew names.

What I came uo with:

You guys are stellar!
