I have somewhat of an odd request... I'm looking for a few ghostscript fonts that are used by sign companies, engravers, headstone, and monument companies. My hopes are that there is someone at Pilo that works at a signshop or otherwise that may be able to help.

Names:

 

  1. Mon Mod Rom Cond > Monument Modify Roman Condensed
  2. Mon Mod Roman Bld > Monument Modify Roman Bold
  3. Monument Blk > Monument Block
  4. Monument Blk Cond > Monument Block Condensed
  5. Military Block
  6. Vermarco

 

These are ghostscript fonts with a .gsf file extension but I can convert them with TransType. I believe these were released in the 80's, but I could be wrong.

 

If you know of any exact matches for widely available fonts, this would also be appreciated.

 

Here is some info about Gerber's Omega Software and font bundles:

Font Designer info: Reg Owens, Monument Art or "Monumental Art Fonts for cemetery monuments"

 

Thanks!

There is no automated way to do it.

You would need to export out the characters and then import them into a "FontLab" and install a spacing and kerning scheme.

 

Cheers!!
