Using fonts for a handwritten sign is a graphic design crime punishable by death.

Let me help you out, complete with upside-down "B":


A convenient, low-calorie, genuine imitation .pdf is included as a free, bonus gift to you at no extra charge.



I thought you'd love the idea when I posted  ;D

Thanks Mike


2005 TARDIS. The font for PUBLIC and CALL is reduced in height from the out of the box Gill Sans MT. Adjusting the scale to 120 and font to 160 in MS Word I get close. I still need to squash the font. Can someone just post a PDF of just that so I can print it American 8 1/2 by 11.

My printer cannot handle the full PDF

I think that Bill Rudloff's PDFs of the NST top signs are unavailable in the wayback machine. A friend of mine commented that they had made a clean-up in the Internet Archive over unlicensed Doctor Who material, so I checked the link that we have in the wayback machine, and the only snapshot they have is one taken the 5th of May this year, where there should be at least one since/before 2017 (according to this thread's comment: Worst of all, that snapshot only displays an error message.
Does anybody mind checking it, to see if it's just me, or if we have lost that file as I fear?
Oh my giddy aunt!!

I've checked, and I think the archive purge got it :(
I think I downloaded at some point, but I must have renamed it. The best I can guess is it's the file I've named NSTPoliceBoxSign - that the file info tells me was created in 2006. Would that be right?

Yes, that should be right.
Would you mind uploading it somewhere and give us a link? Or pass the file to someone else to do it?
Oh my giddy aunt!!

OK, as requested, this is the file I have. Hopefully it's the right one. I've no idea if a Google Drive link is a good long-term place to store it, but I'll leave there.

Thank you, Angelus Lupus!  I know your comment was from 3 years ago.  Just had to thank you.  I've been looking for a good high quality sign graphic for years.  I'm gearing up to finally build my Tennant Tardis.
