I am working on a Word document template, attempting to match a letter head font. The company I am working for purchases large amounts of pre-printed paper and everytime someone is hired or leaves, they have to modify the letterhead, and discard the current letterhead paper. Attempting to bring them into the 21st century, I want to construct a letterhead template in Word, but the person who designed the present one will not tell me what font she used. So, is there anyone I could send a sample to for identification?
Thanks

And she still works there?

Actually, she doesn't even work there. She is the wife of one of the managers. Apparently, she considers this "her territory." His position is that if I can match the font exactally, there would be no problem, just do not expect her to tell me which one it is. I wanted to say "Do the words Childish, and Absurd mean anything to you!" but, wanting to stay employed, I kept my mouth shut.

You can try the following. It's sort of a sledgehammer approach but it may help.

Do this test first so that you know what you are looking for.

Create a Word doc with some "junk" in it and format that junk with a "unique" font. One whose name you will recognize quickly.

Then, open this file in Notepad and look for this "unique" name. You will see other font names in that area as well.

Now, open your letter head doc, and look in the same area for a list of fonts. One of them should be the one you are looking for.
