It’s fairly easy to install (I don’t exactly remember the steps). From what I remember, you have to go to the control panel and select fonts. From there you can add the fonts you have downloaded Boston red sox font generator.
Well, there’s an E in Red Sox, and that’s that’s how it looks, so I’m kind of tied to that for the most part, because the F and L are based off the E. The K, I agree, does look odd, as do some others, but a good deal of imagination is required for some of these. The angled letters probably translate the worst, in my opinion (A, K, V, W, Y, etc.). When you’re working with such strange lettering, certain pieces and parts are almost always going to look awkward.
Brian, Jaffe’s going to make a font, too, but I’ll send out the vectors to you tonight as well. I need to tweak a few small things first.
Here’s another, seems pretty close: http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/urw/wood-type/urw-wood-type-d/ You won’t ever get the exact font, as I am sure it is licensed by the team.
Oh, I completely understand. To me, if you’re the Red Sox, it’s like you have this awesome B, then when you go to make a matching font out of it, you’re stuck, because none of the other letters really look as good as that B. Kind of disappointing, but I still like the quirkiness of these letters and how unique they are, even if the letters themselves can be quite ugly at times. BTW, a little update. I made a few last minute tweaks and sent these letters and numbers off to Eriq Jaffe to create a font of these characters. No timetable on completion at this point.
Who knows or any suggestions where I might find the name of the “font” used for the numbers and letters on the Red Sox uniforms?
In honor of the Red Sox World Championship and opening day 2014, we’d like to share our finds for free Red Sox styled fonts. I’ve used these fonts along with other Red Sox inspired a illustrations to create fun Red Sox themed artwork for parties at home. Enjoy! [banner_abajo]
