VIC-20 Cartridge Label Font

Postby alexjlopez » Mon Aug 14, 2017 11:35 am

Anyone know what the font is that's used in VIC-20 first-party game cartridge labels? The font I'm looking for is the one that's used for the game's name.

I'm trying to create a label for a diagnostic cart I ordered. I searched the board and found a lot of interesting stuff, but came up empty on the font I'm looking for.

Thanks!

The standard, Commodore published games. Like this one. The font I'm looking for is the one used for the game's name.

It was discussed in the past but I suggest you try this: https://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/

I know what it is, but I don't remember. I need to look in my CorelDraw files tonight.
