I can't seem to figure this out and the "What the Font" system isn't helping much. It's quite possible that the font is stretched but the give aways are the middle fork on the E and the lower dropped R. I'm at a loss. Would like a free option if possible, but am willing to go with something similar.

Looks familiar. I think one of the department store chains uses it for their ads.

Closest I could find after a few minutes of searching is Examiner NF. It has a similar R, G, and most other letters, but the E's middle bar is not lowered and the O isn't quite as round and the M doesn't have straight verticals.

This font probably "feels" familiar because it's similar in general style to Futura, which we've all probably seen since part of its family is included with Mac OS X.

It is very similar to Futura. I found Sofia Extra Light, which isn't it but is very close and not horribly priced. The exact match seems to be Neutraface, which is very expensive.

That Examiner NF is very close and cheaper than the one I found. That Neutraface is pretty sexy though. I wish amazing fonts weren't so expensive...

Which should I buy, OTF or TTF? I'm intending to use this font in a 300 DPI postcard to print.

Reminds my of old-school "Avant Garde," but the R and E are all wrong. I feel like I've used it before, but I'm completely at a loss right now for a name. I thought for a minute I was on the right trail with searching for "wilton sans serif" (the name in the URL) and finding a Wilton font foundry, but the closest they have is "Oslo."

Definitely in the Deco vein.... *sigh* I used to be really good at this...

So it goes.

If it makes you feel any better I knew I'd see you post here.
