FPT, GT, Pursuit fonts

G'day. is anyone else here interested in getting a copy of the font they use for the FPV, GT and PURSUIT logos? Maybe if enough of us put our hands up FPV will share them. I want them for upgrading my web page as well as for vinyls for my pursuit ute. I'm sure others out there have other reasons they could use them.

BTW it's my first post here so please be nice ©¿©

Count me in - I believe that FPV created their own font so they own it

Re: FPT, GT, Pursuit fonts

There are a number of font creating programs around, where you can specify your own design, or edit existing fonts. Creating them as vector fonts is another option.
My mind fails me on the name of these programs, either a search on a file sharing site for "fonts", or someone on the forums will know the program(s) name.

Regards

Paul

Re: FPT, GT, Pursuit fonts

I sent an email to Blueprint regarding the fonts this was the reply I got...

Thanks for your email. This is a font we have created for our own use, and is therefore not available in any commercial programmes.
Thanks

Only thing I can say "Thanks Heaps" Don't know about all of you but after spending the money I spent on buying my ute, you'd think a simple thing like a font would be easy to get. Well I guess not. Anyone got any info on how the new R8 ute from holden goes? But on a happy note I've found someone that will make the font for me to use from scanned images. So once I've paid for it and have it in my hands I'll release it here for everyone to use if they want it. ©¿©

Re: FPT, GT, Pursuit fonts

Hey guys, the fonts are their property, they paid for them.
Did you ask if you could BUY a copy of the fonts?

FPV are a business, that is, they do stuff to make money. They make cars and accessorys and sell them.
I suspect they view the fonts in the same way they view ECU codes or CAD drawings, as intellectual property.
You asked, they declined, stop bitching.

If you really want these fonts you could spend heaps of hours of your own time (not work time on your work computer) making them and then give them away to everyone.

Looks more like a picture of the logo to me.

Maybe while you are whinging about not getting the intellectual property of Ford maybe you could ring Colonel Sanders and ask for the secret spices or call the guys at Coke and get the recipe for that. Maybe NASA will hand over the plans for the Space Shuttle in its entireity.
