My latest restore has a lovely script font across the bottom identifying the occasion. Lots of it was fuzzy and damaged so I went hunting.
I found this site http://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/ where you can select 2-3 letters out of your photo, upload it and they identified it straight away, free.  Thumbs Up v.2

Here's what I uploaded and one click told me it was ribbon 131.

I've used this web site myself for several years. As long as the lettering is clean with a dark or high contrasting background, it can detect what font you are looking for. Sometimes I've had to cleanup the lettering and provided a different background so the web site could make a clear identification.  Cheesy

Two thumbs up!
As a Graphic Designer for the last 18 years, this is an invaluable tool!
Wish I would've known about this site sooner.

Thanks a million!
