    Some years back someone on team.net made up a TrueType font that included the letters for Sunbeam, Alipne and Tiger. Is that the kind of thing you want? If so, send me an email address and I'll forward them.
    Cheers,
    Paul.

    Looks like there are others wanting....!

    Hi. Greenbean, Beings that you are such a nice guy:D, forward to me too!:)

    tiger2dan@gmail.com

    The reason I suppose is that I have a friend that is in the upholstery business and just purchased a new laser for engraving "stuff"!

    Thought of him immediately when reading "Robbie's" request.

    Thanks for your help,

    DanR

    We have a very good embroidery place near us and they can take any computer graphic and make it into an embroidered product (towels, sheets, blankets, pillows, sweaters... basically anything).

    If anyone can get me the script and/or logo as a nice file I can see what she'd charge to do custom work.

    My dash is made of aluminum, so I was gonna get my glove box door laser engraved with the sunbeam script, but the place never got back to me and I don't know if theyre still open. I'll try to put the font somewhere to download and if anyone objects I'll be glad to take it down. Anyone have an FTP server or sky drive or anything I can upload it to?

    How large is the file?

    If I upload every emblem, script, badge and the fonts that I found online, it's only about 1.5 mB

    There should be a repository somewhere that we can upload anything like that to so everyone can get to them.

    Each attachment on a regular post can be 97.7 KB if it's zipped. Maybe start a new thread for graphic elements... Or a segment of the photo gallery perhaps.

    (It may even be possible to just change the filename extension to .zip without actually needing to zip it... Just change it back after downloading.)

    I'm a bit hesitant to post them because I didn't develop them (and I don't know who did). Happy to pass them on individually - just PM me your email address. (Hannes, Bavaria - send me a PM with your email).

    If anyone knows who did them in the first place (back in the Team.net days), perhaps we can get permission from the person.

    Regards,
    Paul.

    The TTF files are only a few KB each (three files - "Alpine", "Sunbeam", and (ahem) "Tiger"). <grin>

    Cheers,
    Paul.

    Aha, info on the files shows 'Copyright John C. Slade 25 Nov 1998' - anyone know if John is still 'beaming'?

    Regards,
    Paul.

    Well I actually think its one of those grey area things because it's Rootes font in the first place, like you couldn't put up a ford label and copyright it even though you made it. I will be glad to remove it though if there are any objections to it.

    I must have done something wrong. I tried to unzip it and my screen started flashing. Had to do a shut down to stop it. I'm sure I have a virus now. Been thinking about Camaros... And MG's...:rolleyes:

    These font files do not have any virus in them. Trust me,... I've been an IT engineer for over 30 years, and I fully tested them before I installed them on my own PC. They're clean and they work.

    As noted, once you've downloaded them just rename each font file's extension from '.zip' to '.ttf' and then go to your "Start-> Control Panel -> Fonts" folder and then click "File->Install New Font..." and point to the place where you saved the three files. You can select all three and install them all at once.

    Mind you, these fonts will ONLY let you spell words that have the letters from their respective titles (plus the "GT" over/under character). They do not contain an entire alphabet. So with the Alpine font, for example, you can write "Alpine" but not "Alpines" or any other word that contains letters other than a, l, p, i, n, or e.
