Can anyone give a good alternative to Mrs Eaves?

It was used in our Invitation suite and I’d love to use it on our programs but I can’t justify spending 60+ for it. Same goes for Burgues (though I’m considering using Jane Austen instead for that.)

i love helvetica neue! there are so many options- utralight, light, regular, semibold and bold. what a great way to add variety to your invites while keeping the consistencey =) if you’re ever looking for free font downloads, i love dafont.com they have ALL sorts of non-copyrighted fonts free to download. I’m thinking about mixing Riddle (a script) with Helvetica Neue!

Anyone know what the serif font is on this invitation suite? I know the script is Bickhem and the Monogram is Ecuyer Dax.

@amartin100503: It looks similar to Perpetua Titling, though it might not be an exact match (I’m not a font expert)

@Leprechaun:Very very similar, but no dice. I’ve found that the numbers are very unique. So I’ve been trying to find it based on the zip code 91702. That ‘2’ has a very specific look. But, thank you for you help.

I am trying to find a script type calligraphy font to print addresses on the envelopes. I looked up Adios Script mentioned in a post 2 years ago and I love it. Where can I find similar fonts (without costing $99) for envelope addressing ?

Thanks

For many of you struggling to find your font:

http://www.identifont.com/

It probably doesn’t have all the free ones that you see from dafont.com, but it will definitely help you find something from a publication. 

Typography was probably some the Fiance and I argued about more than anything else. I’m a graphic designer (as a hobby) and he’s a very into design. 😉

Hi bees, I’m hoping to get some recommendations for a serif font that goes with Burgues script.
