    Okay y'all, so you're out there looking for an "outdated font" or something specific a client has asked for but can't find it anywhere? Google has always got your back:

    if you know the file name or can take a guess search for:
    intitle:"index.of" (ttf|otf) FONTNAME -html -php -aps -cf -jsp
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 9

    That's nice, you can also also find some good high-res stocks from google. "inurl:shutterstock keyword" then select a larger resolution to filter high-res photos.

    My trick is to search for the font, use the font example generator that those websites have, and then I save the image/screenshot it, vectorise it in Adobe Illustrator, and place it into whatever my client requested.
