Old Carved Font From Campground Signs

dontbugme's picture

The vertical strokes of the "M" and "N" in this hand carved lettering are slightly curved. Any suggestions?

Nothing similar?

It reminds me of Sprinsteel (http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/paragraph/springsteel/) but obviously the effect is completely different.
Another one could be Hobo (http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/atf/hobo/alternate_cuts.html), but, well…

On the rough side: http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/wilton/saycheez/ (or, not rounded, http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/jelloween/jesterday/)

Thanks guys... not quite sure any of those will look like a campground sign (maybe saycheez). Hobo was the closest thing I had found on my own.

For a different style, you could look at the suggestions in this older thread:

I contacted the nice folks at Wood Product Signs because they had this photo posted of a newer sign they made with that older type:


They told me that it was routered out using CAD software, and that the "font" (CAD letter outlines) they use is called "Old Time Round Gothic." That's not really a font, but maybe it can help you in your search?

None of these are exact matches, but have have a similar retro feel (to me):
- Zar Brush Gothic
- Dash Decent
- Wigwag
- Magnesium
- Delargo Rounded

Search terms like "monoline," "rounded," "speedball," "showcard," retro may get you closer...

That Dash Decent looks like a good candidate. Thanks to all for the suggestions!
