This message was posted on 9/16, and as of yet, has not been replied to. I
am also interested in downloading the Cheap Trick Logo font. Surely someone
here at the list can help us. Thanks.

Try Courier or Courier Bold.

I appreciate the info, but I'm thinking there has to be a specific "messy
typewriter" font out there somewhere. I see plenty of people use it on
websites and CDr artwork. Thanks.

There are a couple different ones that look sorta right but none that will do
it exact. They always seem a bit too light so I always took something close
and then had to make them messier and darker in places...

I think the best one I saw was called "tricky" It was a mac font. I had a guy
send it to me but I couldn't get it to work on my Windows 95 machine.

Outt..

There's a TrueType font called 'Harting' that comes pretty
close (tho you might have to 'messy it up' a little more to
approach the sloppy genius of the CT logo).

Most free font sites have it. Good luck.

If it were up to me I'd try getting a cheap old typewriter from a thrift store,
type what I wanted and then scan it.

How does it feel to be better?

A very nice "messy typewriter font" can be found on the "Unofficial Cheap
Trick Binaries Page." Here's the link, and hope this helps!

Ooops... I should have verified that the download still worked before
posting the link... But, obviously, since I am replying to my own message,
there are problems with the info that I gave out. The link to the zip file
is busted. So, back to the drawing board for now. I think I still have the
font on my hardrive at home... I'll look for it and post an update if I can
find it. Sorry 'bout that!

That's the same font that was on the UCTB page. And, it is pretty close,
but not perfect. I may just try my hand at creating a font...

Yeah the X-Files doesn't look as good as some of the other ones on certain
letters or when there are too many of them together.. get creating!
