    What font is this?

    Don't suppose anyone can help identify the font used in this image?

    I've been asked if I can do a bunch of graphics for the web site, and it would obviously help!!!

    Thanks, that's a useful site. But it couldn't quite get that one - though Enviro is close, (but without the rounded lower corners).

    There are some nice free fonts there though...

    Not an exact match but pretty close:

    I'll have to do some more searching. I think I've seen that font somewhere.

    See here for a clip of Enviro - its VERY similar, but my one some curves, eg bottom left of the E. I may end up having to use this instead though, the customer has no idea what was put together for him...

    I had a very similar ifont identification problem for a font used for a logo recently. Icouldn't match it and queried the original 2D designer who then said that it had been been hand drawn as a one-off. Maybe it's the same for you?

    I'm begining to think that it must have been some sort of minor variant on Enviro, perhaps twiddled for a shareware type collection in an attempt to sidestep copyright...

    The good news is that I have roughed out some stuff using Enviro, and the client seems happy with that. The only real difference is the bottom left corners are curved here and not in Enviro. I don't think Joe Public will notice the difference.

    But thanks to all who chipped in, Identifont is one I have bookmarked.
