I was just about to mention how I loved posts like this from when this thread started, but I equally appreciate the whole "what's this font?" aspect as well.

Does anyone know the name of the font the “Brady” is on this letter head or a font that’s similar to it?

That's hand drawn but fonts like Mostra Nuova are pretty close

What's a good font for imitating the old DOS-y, pixelated text on this?

It's not very DOS-y because IBM PC character sets were (I think) all serif fonts, but maybe Here Lies MECC.

e: Nope, seems to be based on some other version probably.

I’ll try to figure out an exact match later, but just going off memory, this looks very Proxima Nova or Nexa or the like?

It's probably an inlined version of Futura or a similar geometric sans-serif (Kabel, Erbar, etc).



It's tracked out and looks a bit vertically squashed.

Thanks y'all! I appreciate your input, one of those will definitely either be it or super close to it. 😁
