    What font is this?

    My design lady is trying to match the font on my old business card. We can always change it, no biggie, but if anyone recognizes it, please let me know.

    The company name and my name and title are in the same font (not sure about the title).

    Thanks so much!

    I think your title has two fonts. The capital Cs are one font and the rest is a Times New Roman Style. The Cs resemble a French Script.

    Did you do this yourself originally?

    No - I think it might have been the original designer or Staples that chose them when I ordered my first cards online.

    But a change would be fine. I just told the present designer that I would check into this one.

    There's thousands and thousands of font designers out there. Trying to track that down is like finding a needle in a haystack....anyone could have designed it.

    No, the title is all one font, it is close to Longon Decorative, I'll keep looking for the exact match. I looked at a few others, but if your Google "Longon Decorative" you designer can download that, and it's quite close. And the rest of the card was set in Helvetica, which is fine but boring, I'd suggest she choose a different sans serif, just so it doesn't look like someone just used a default template.

    I stand corrected. I took a chance and clicked on the twirls tag and there it was.
