Fonts similar to IMPACT
0

hello,

i am looking for a typeface that is very impactful. a typeface that says 'boom' that is bold and heavy. i do not care if it is serif or sans serif... perhaps something similar to the kinds of 'branding' stamps that cows get. perhaps something close to Impact but a bit more interesting. i would appreciate it if someone can give me some suggestions. thanks in adavance :)

(if possible, the family should have small caps)

How about taking a Knockout? :^)

Further suggestions;
Giza
H&FJ Proteus Series
Titling Gothic FB

If it's going to be used for high-impact display type, do you really need small caps?

cool, thanks so much! i really like knockout and titling gothic fb.
these will definitly work for me. giza is really nice too, but i feel its overly stylized for what im looking for. do you have any more suggestions inline with or more similar to knockout and titling gothic (my concern with the titling font is that the J's look too much like backward L's).

What is the name of the company the logo is for? and what is their main product or service?

wow, the ultra-black tang "a" is a aspirant for relieving gill sans ultra-bold "a" from the top list of strange "a"s. :)

Just finished a mighty long list of bold headline fonts, starting with a group of typefaces in the same genre as Impact.
