Will you be rotary engraving or lasering?

If you have a rotary machine usually manufacturers include that font with number of other fonts. I have it for Xenetech machine but it will do you no good if you do not have machine the font is written for.

If you intend to rotary engrave then you'll have to get the font from your engraving machine mfr. or try to create what you need in Corel and export it as a plt or eps file.

It's an exact match for "English 3 Line" in the Xenetech rotary fonts.

One thing you might do is to include what machines you have in your signature. It would save you and the group a lot of time. Those with similar machines would respond quickly.

Most machines have open software, allowing the exchange of fonts. The major exception to this are the New Hermes machines. It is why they frequently show up for sale in the Engraver's Journal. There is a company that specializes in fonts and logos for most machines.... it is called Lamro Sales:

Thanks for the help and suggestions, I use a roland egx 300 and a universal m-300 laser 25w. I had a feeling it was the font provided with a different machine I use engravelab with the rotary and know those fonts aren't usable for others I think at this point I will just redo the whole plate since there are only 7 prior years on it and go from there.

Thanks again - is there a place to make your signature with info or do you just need type it in everytime?
