Closest I get to it is something called "ITC HondaEF" or just "Honda EF"

What kind of search did you do? :eek:

I spend ages looking through lists of fonts on websites to try and match them because I can't describe a font to find it.

What is you secret metal grasshopper?

EDIT: For those who would like a free font that looks like the Honda one (as it's a commerical font) you can get it here:

I use "What the font". http://new.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/

Do a page grab/snapshot/whatever with a nice large sample of it. Save the image.
(I'll use the snapshot tool in adobe reader for the ork one - I have a pdf copy AND a hardcopy. Copy the image into paint and crop and save the result. then upload the file.

The site picks out letters and does a match for the x closest.

Easy.

Now that I've told you, I'm going to have to kill you. :D

Nice. So, so long as you have a sample of it the program will identify common shapes and match them.

Sweeeet.

You'll have to travel a 6 hours to kill me though...:D

Got a direction?

At a guess, 6 hours by road would put me around Canberra, or Orange.

I'm sharpening my pun-ishing wit. Your death will not be swift, but it will be mirthless. :D

On what the font your expected to pay 29 dollars for a single font pack?

There are far more free websites out there that have a chance of containing your desired font.

http://www.1001freefonts.com/
http://www.dafont.com/

Those are the largest two. There are a few more 50% pay 50% free ones but those are the best.

The main Ork font is not uncommon, and is called "Heidlberg", sometimes also seen referred to as "Civic". This of course causes some confusion.

You can find it here: http://www.abstractfonts.com/font/60

What the font is good to find the name, and then flee to download it free elsewhere :P
