SP Fonts?

Unread postby Becky » 29 Mar 2008 08:41

Are the fonts that were used for the logo and Dressed Up As Life available to download anywhere? I want to make some SP banners, and I like to use the real fonts!

^^^ Thanks! I can use that now instead of the makeshift one I downloaded. (I got close, though!)

It would really be awesome if the font used on the logo was available.

I might did something wrong but when I want to extract the file, it says "the archive is in an unknown format or damaged" ... :confused:

Hmm. It worked fine for me. If I were you, I'd delete it and try to download it again.

Hey, how do you get this font to work in Gimp?
Or is not usable?

I didn't use Gimp but I couldn't open it either... I wanted to use something similar so I just found a different one from dafont for the time being. I will try to maybe download it again :tongue:

You guys can ALWAYS screen cap the logo and copy/paste it? Better yet, I'll email you blank letterhead, ambassadors.

@ Susanna: Hey! Would it be possibly for me to get that as well? I'm trying to make promotional posters for SP, but can't find the font. If you do decide to send them, I'll give you my e-mail

Thanks!

Absolutely I'd be happy to send over the letterhead. I don't have the font file, unfortunately because my laptop crashed and I had to replace it. But I'm sure it's a very common one. It's "Vandalism" for the SPWC and the "Sick Puppies" was a brush we made in PSP from their logo.

Thanks! Yeah, I found two fonts on Piccnik.com that sorta resembled the fonts for the "Sick Puppies" logo, but they weren't quite right. :| I'm posting the graphic that I used the look alike fonts on in the aart/gallery section if you wanna see them. Here's my e-mail:

Lol so this is an ancient thread but I found it by searching for the SP font, I have the WC one. If anyone ever did find the SP font or if you still have that letterhead can you send it to me?

a custom brush feature comes in programs like paint shop pro and photoshop. It won't make a font but it'll make you a brush (kind of like a stamp) that can be used in graphics. :)

As far as I can tell the font for SICK is "Calibri" and the font for PUPPIES is "Euphemia"

The problem you are going to run into is making the spacing and boldness of those fonts. I reverse engineered the original font and found that you most likely will need to use Photoshop to make these look right (photoshop has extra "bold"ing features and that was the only way I could get SICK to be the right thickness). Also most programs don't allow you to change the spacing of your font (I had to adjust the spacing between the letters in PUPPIES in order to smoosh them closer together). Then there is a final "effect" that you have to put over both of them to make them look torn (also done in photoshop, but I won't go into that right now).

So now it depends on what you actually want to do. If you only need SICKPUPPIES to put on various things, then you should just use the image of it. However, if you are looking to type out something other than SICKPUPPIES, you will at least start with the "Calibri" and "Euphemia" fonts.

Hope that helps :D

UPDATE: I actually found that you can change the spacing of the words in Word. I have 2007 so it should still work in later versions. You have to click the more menu options under "Font" and you should see a tab that will say "Character spacing". I did that and it looks really good.

Image

In this I made SICK with "Calibri" at 24pt BOLDED. Then make PUPPIES with "Euphemia" at 19pt (regular, no bold). Then highlight the whole thing and change the character spacing to "condensed" by 2 pt. then VIOLA, you have a typeable version. (You could also make Euphemia at 20pt, but i think 19pt sells it better by putting a little more emphasis on SICK)

I have been trying to download this font for about an hour. I have tried the site listed above and another 4-5 sites. Each time I get one of three problems: 1) it pops up to download but then does the "not responding" thing; 2) pops up to download but does nothing - 0% downloaded; or 3) downloads 99% of it but stops there and doesn't continue. The number of swear words out of my mouth in the last hour has been too numerous to count. I give up. :wall: :wall: :wall:
