The first one looks like it was done on a typewriter.  I recognize it because I remember using my aunt’s typewriter growing up before I had a computer.  The second I don’t recognize.  I’d just go through Microsoft Word and go through all the fonts before you find the one that matches it the best.

I’m 99% sure that font is AKEEM… if it’s not AKEEM is a very, very close match. I don’t think it’s in MS word.

Edit: Seriously, this is perplexing. I downloaded this exact font awhile ago on dafont.com, but I just searched it & it wasn’t there. There’s no “Akeem” on the site. Hmmm… maybe I can send you the font if you PM me with your email address??

I definitely have it 🙂

I’m making this my mission!!

Castellar (which I’m pretty sure comes w/ MS word) looks similar. It’s not as close as the phantom “Akeem” font, but it’s free & easily accessible.

I’m pretty sure it’s Chevalier.

As a Mac user, it looks an AWFUL lot like Jazz Let, a standard Mac font.

Here’s a screen shot of the same name in Jazz Let

I agree with RecessionistaBride that it looks a lot like AKEEM.  I also have this font on my PC and want it for my mac, but I can’t seem to find it either (even on my computer)

There are a few differences between Jaz Let.  Namely, the serifs on the capital N and T.  Also, in lowercase, the “dots” on i’s etc. are quite different – Although that’s irrelevant from this example.

I think Chevalier is the winner though, as the S’s are more ornate (matching the picture) than AKEEM.  Everything also seems a touch more “squished” top to bottom than AKEEM.

However, if anyone has any info on AKEEM (Maybe it has another name – but installs as AKEEM ??), I would appreciate a post!
