For these games we are working on for a new kids site (more on this soon!) I had to look for a ‘popcorn’ font. I took a few old timey images and tried to match the fonts. These were the fonts that I came up with:
1. Curlz by Ascender Corp. I cut off the serifs at the bottom and slanted the letters. This is a good font for a movie theatre popcorn bag.
2. Saloon Girl by Fontmesa. I broke down each font, and gave each letter a fat 3pt outline with the ink bottle tool. Then I broke down those outlines and gave each of those the final outline. Great font for on a popcorn machine.
3. Salsbury by Larabie. This font was already made to look like the font on a popcorn bag, so no changes here.
4. Queen Rosie by Fontdiner. Another great font here would be zebrawood by Linotype.
