Help with Font ID


(John Ellenberger) #1

I have to duplicate the font used on this sign. Rockler would call it a “state park” font but of course there is no such thing as far as fonts go. Any ideas what this font with rounded ends on the letters could be?

The state may have guidance on the type of font to be used. I know CalTrans (California Department of Transportation) has guidance for signs that it produces/has produced.

Oh hey, this thread may be useful:

According to Whatfontis.com, it’s likely one of these
Europa Grotesk SB Round A
Europa Grotesk SB Round
Proxima Soft SemiBold
Seconda Round Shadow 4 Fi
Seconda Round Shadow 3 Fi

Looks like Ariel Round Bold to me.

Absolutely… surprised Whatfontis didn’t come up with that

WhatTheFont Font Recognition APP is what has been recommended to me in the past. See it at:

Yes I have used it in the past. For some reason it didn’t pop into my head this time.
