Does anyone know what the font is called and what size the current letters are on the back of the Elise?

I know some people that have a $500,000 laser cuter and I think they could cut the letters for us in very thin stainless and we could stick them on. I need to know what the font is called and figure out what size it is. Times Roman is close but not it...

Now you know, are you happy now Elaine;)

Scan the letters in. If they have a laser cutter, they can create the letters in Corel or something similar and send the outlines to the cutter.

Or, if you are patient, I will also be cutting new letters for my car to place over the stripes. Then I will have the logo pre-made for you.

:D

I tried matching the L O T U S lettering in a photo to those produced by MS Word.

Keep in mind that the surface is curved, so that your letters won't look quite the same installed as on the page. And also that your metal letters will need to flex. And also that your adhesive needs to be strong enough to counter that flex so the letters will not pop off from the tension.

Hello AW,

Those fonts are not an exact match. Have a look at the top of the T and bottom of the L.

When I was in high school, I had a job working for a graphic designer. He would never just use a font as-is. He'd start with a font he liked, then tweak each letter to get the whole word/logo to look better together, and to add character (no pun intended).

So if you want an exact match, take a high res photo of each letter, then trace them in adobe illustrator.
