Re: Font identiy...

No, I think it was the choice of the Secretary of the Club, who held that position for about 30 years.Who knows, over time, I they may be open to a change in design. Any ideas of a good font to use for a letterhead? Recommending a change in design can lead to hurt feelings if the person who designe...

Re: Font identiy...

Re: Font identiy...

Thank you for your suggestions but, unfortunately, the Association decided upon the font many years ago and will not change :(

The other font used in the letterhead is also unknown to me. Are you able to identify it, please?

Re: Logo to improve

I still consider the design submitted by troken way back is the most attractive logo I've seen for Linux Mint.
