Could be trying to engrave a 'zero'! Depending on who's playing, some of them would sound so much better on a '0' setting :D

Yup! My Uncle wants them :D

The first batch I did came out good, but he said it would be even better if I could match the font exactly!

Well, now after looking through all my fonts, I have neither of those! Bummer! Anyone one to email them to me? Thanks!

There are at least eight types of Futura in my font folder. Well here they are anyway, you choose which to use.

I've often have good luck finding fonts at dafont dot com. They have an unbelievable selection.

Hey Tracey, just an idea for you. I have a couple of bands as clients and I make plastic I.D. tags that look more or less like zipper pulls or really small luggage tags. The band members put them on their instrument bags and cases as well as they label all their personal cables and cords. The band also labels the cords and cables that belong to the band. It really helps them sort things out and helps prevent from some of being stolen. I even made a few from Rowmark LaserGlow (javascript:SetWebField('WORDPR01','WEBFUNC','CATS RCH2','SCATCODE','813')) which helps them find their bag handles in dark trunks or vans and backstage where it is dark.I sell the cable and cord tags for 80 cents a tag and they are 1" x .75", the larger ones range from $3.00 to $5.00. Some guys want different images on their personal tags along with their name and for phone numbers. They attach the tags with tie wraps.
Well anyway, just an idea for you. :D:D

Yeah seriously! I was going to make some more tomorrow and couldn't remember where I left off because I got side tracked.
