Marinette Font

Postby BayfieldMarinette » Wed Feb 08, 2017 8:47 pm

Does anyone know what font marinette used? I just got my first M and want to do my boat name and home port in the same font. I've been having a heck of a time figuring out what it is tho. Any ideas?

I don't know what font they used or if it was a custom hand drawn logo back in the day.
I uploaded your attachment to a few web sites that try to match the fonts by image.
Search "find font" and there are a few sites like "What the Font" etc. but the image is kind of fuzzy so it was hard to find an exact match
If there is a sharper image of the logo it might find a closer match.

I've tried all of those sites with no luck.

Your looking for a 'FONT" that most likely does not exist. Don't waste anymore time looking for something that's just not there. Take what you have in hand to your local sign shop that specializes in vinyl signs, they will copy it exactly as it is then you can assign it your own custom font name. I've done this and its always a perfect match.

The closest thing I could ever find is italicized & bold, Bauhaus 93 font.

I will second Carl's opinion...it's not a font you are going to find on Microsoft Word. Custom deal.

Roger that. Anyone have a high resolution image of it? What about the seahorse logo, does anyone have a good image of that? I'd like to make some personal shirts for my boat.

Just slap a bertram sticker on the side and order bertram shirts. Something about a Sea Horse in a tu-tu just doesnt look right.

I have created DXF files so you can use to create YOUR OWN art items.

I can create other art like this for custom signage.

PM me if you would like a quote for the custom art.
